Cleaning the particle filter
Cleaning the plate filter
Your appliance is equipped with a “Sensor Control” Function. Figure 23 +
Figure 25
This function constantly monitors whether your vacuum cleaner is reaching
its optimum power level. The indicator light lets you know when you need
to clean the plate filter, so that the vacuum cleaner can reach its optimum
power level once more.

The indicator lights up blue when the appliance is working at its optimum
level. Once the indicator turns red and flashes, the plate filter must be
cleaned. The appliance is automatically adjusted to the lowest power
setting.

● Switch the appliance off in order to clean the plate filter.
Caution:
! The filter can only be cleaned if the appliance is switched off.
● To clean the plate filter, turn the knob at least three turns clockwise.
You can also clean the filter if the suction is becoming less powerful, even if
the indicator has not lit up.
We recommend you clean the plate filter before emptying the dust
container: It must be cleaned at the latest when the “Sensor Control”
indicator lights up.
If the indicator flashes three times in quick succession, even though the
plate filter is clean, this is probably due to a dirty fluff filter. In this case, the
appliance automatically adjusts to the lowest power setting and the
indicator lights up red permanently.
● Switch the appliance off, empty the dust container and clean the fluff
filter according to the instructions in “Cleaning the fluff filter”. Figure 28

this manual, the plate filter does not need to be removed or cleaned
manually in order to achieve its optimum power level.
! Do not brush the filter.

Cleaning the fluff filter
The fluff filter should be cleaned at regular intervals in order to ensure
optimum operation of the vacuum cleaner. When emptying the dust
container, always check how dirty the fluff filter is. It is usually sufficient to
lightly shake or tap out the filter housing when the dust container is emptied
in order to dislodge any particles of dirt.
If this is not sufficient, the brush which is supplied with the appliance or a
dry cloth can be used to remove dirt particles from the surface.
! Caution: the fluff filter must not be cleaned under running water.

When the cleaner is handled properly and according to the instructions in
this manual, the Hepa filter does not need replacement. In order to ensure
that the machine works at its optimum performance level, please wash the

performance is not affected by this.

To remove the filter just follow these four steps:
29
Figure
● Open the exhaust grille by pressing the release button.
