Cleaning and maintenance

cleaned regularly.

filter holder.
Warning! Never use the appliance
without the filters. Optimum dust
collection will only be achieved with clean
filters and an empty dust bowl. If dust
begins to fall back out of the appliance
after switching it off, this indicates that
the dust bowl is full and must be emptied.

9 months and whenever worn or
