GENERAL SAFETY INFORMATION
PACKAGING
• The box and packaging materials have been designed to protect the appliance during shipping and are biodegradable and
recyclable. Please dispose of these items as you would any other product that can be recycled.
USED VACUUM CLEANER
• The symbols for the materials used to manufacture parts and accessories, and the recycle symbols, are located on the parts
themselves, where there is room to do so. Old vacuum cleaners may contain materials that can be re-used or recycled.
IMPORTANT SAFETY MEASURES
When using an electrical appliance, there are several basic precautions to be taken at all times, including:
• Always read all of the instructions for use before using the appliance.
• Always abide by these safety instructions.
• Never use the appliance on people or animals.
IMPORTANT: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK OR INJURY:
• Check the voltage stated on the vacuum cleaner before connecting the power cable to the main power supply; the main voltage needs to be the same as the voltage stated on the appliance rating plate, which is located on the bottom of the vacuum
cleaner. If you are not sure of your power supply voltage, please check with a qualified electrician.
• A damaged vacuum cleaner can be dangerous. Check the packaging, the vacuum cleaner and the attachments for any signs
of damage. Never use a damaged appliance.
• Never leave the vacuum cleaner plugged into the main power. Unplug the cleaner when not in use or before carrying out any
cleaning or maintenance to the appliance itself.
• Only use the vacuum cleaner on dry surfaces; do not use it outdoors, on wet surfaces or to clean up any type of liquid. Do
not use this appliance to clean up liquids as this could reduce the electrical safety of the cleaner. This also applies in the case
of carpets that have just been washed: wait until they are dry.
• Do not allow the vacuum cleaner to be used as a toy. Take care if it is used by or near children.
• If the power cable rewind or the cable itself are damaged, they should be replaced only by an authorised after-sales assistance service. Never use the vacuum cleaner with a damaged cable or plug.
• If the appliance does not operate correctly or if it has been dropped or damaged, left outdoors or immersed in water, take it
to your retailer or to an after sales assistance service.
• For any repairs or to purchase parts or accessories, please contact your retailer or an authorised technical service centre. Do
not try to carry out repairs yourself.
• Do not pull or carry the vacuum cleaner by the cable; do not use the cable as a handle; do not close the cable in doors or
pull it across sharp edges or around corners. Never pass the appliance over the cable. Keep the cable well away from hot
surfaces.
• Do not unplug the appliance by pulling on the power cable: grip the plug and not the cable. Do not touch the cable or the
appliance with wet hands.
• Always keep hair, clothing, fingers and all other body parts well away from openings and moving parts.
• Set the switch to OFF after use.
• Take special care when cleaning stairs.
• When using this appliance with an accessory always remove the plug from the electric socket before attaching any rotating
brush. In any case, never touch the rotating brush while it is operating.
• Do not pass attachments over the appliance power cable or any extension lead.
• Do not clean up sharp objects.
• Always switch off the appliance before fitting or removing the hose.
• The poles in the plug and the contacts in the power socket must never come into contact with water. These parts can only be
wiped clean with a dry cloth and must not be allowed to come into contact with moisture. Danger of electric shock.

GENERAL SAFETY INFORMATION
• Only wipe the appliance clean with a dry (or very slightly damp) cloth while it is unplugged. Never place the appliance in
water.
• Never clean up anything that is burning or smoking, such as cigarettes, matches, hot ash, etc.
• Never place any items in the appliance openings. Never use the vacuum cleaner with openings blocked in any way; keep
them free from dust, dirt, hair and anything else that might reduce air flow.
• Do not clean up toner powder. The toner used in printers and copiers can conduct electricity.
• Do not use the vacuum cleaner without a dust bag and/or without the filters in place. Dust bags need to be disposed of and
can be used only once. Do not try to re-use them.
IMPORTANT: The manufacturer cannot accept any liability for damage to people or property caused by improper use,
maintenance carried out by persons without the proper authorisation, the use of non-original or unauthorised spare parts,
or any form of tampering with and/or changes made to the original product.
The manufacturer reserves the right to make changes to the appliance and/or accessories supplied without any prior
notice.

MACHINE PREPARATION AND OPERATION
4. STARTING UP THE BRUSH
To operate: Use your foot to press the cover (A) and lower the cleaner at
the same time.
A
5. CHECKING THE BRUSH
The brush control device constantly checks the brush operation:
• Green light: the brush is operating correctly Red light: the brush is
blocked or subject to excessive stresses. Switch off the cleaner, remove
the mains plug and check the cause of the blockage.
• Simultaneous red and green lights: roller worn out: to be replaced.
6. FILTER-FULL INDICATOR
If the Full Bag Indicator turns red, check the following:
a) if the dust bag is full
b if the brush is obstructed
c) if the suction tube is obstructed; in this case, remove the obstruction
d) if the Hepa filter is completely obstructed during suction, it is normal for
the bag full indicator to turn partly red, since the tube is almost completely closed.

MAINTENANCE
1. FILTER DUST BAG REPLACEMENT
Remove the hatch. Place paper bag in the container, inserting the bag support fitting into the hole in the bag and pushing the safety ring as far as it
will go. If the filter bag is not correctly positioned, it will not be possible to
close the hatch.
2. FILTER REPLACEMENT
Take out the filter support and replace it or clean it by tapping it gently (the
filter needs to be replaced about every 20 dust bags).
3. HEPA FILTER REPLACEMENT;
PREFILTER REPLACEMENT OR CLEANING
Depress the black clip (A) to release the ventilation grille and at the same
time slide out the grille (in the direction of the arrow) to free it. The prefilter
is located in the air outlet area under the Hepa filter. Replace or clean the
prefilter by washing it with water, then dry it and put it carefully back in
place. Replace the Hepa filter when dirty and reassemble the ventilation grill
by sliding it until you hear the clip lock into place.
