A complete oval around the power button will illuminate when the charge is complete. 3 T he precision charger monitors the batteries so you don’t have to. A complete charge can take as little as 3 hours, but may take up to 6 hours because the charger monitors battery properties to extend battery life. Leaving the unit in the charger past the complete charge time will NOT harm the batteries. 4If the vacuum has never been used or has not been used for an extended period of time, it will take 3 to 5 complete charge and run down cycles to realize the full operational time of the vacuum. 5Do not store or charge in areas of high temperature or humidity. 6Use only the charge adapter supplied with this unit, marked with “For SV1100 series Models Only”.

(fig. 8) fig. 10 fig. 11 fig. 9 fig. 12 CLEANING THE MOTORIZED BRUSH AND CLEARING BLOCKAGES CLEANING THE FILTER Your vacuum has a high efficiency dust cup to maintain strong suction by preventing debris from collecting on the filter. To maintain strong suction, it is important to clean the foam filter every month, under normal use. 1 T urn off the vacuum and remove the dust cup. 2Remove the foam filter (fig. 9) and rinse under water until the water runs clear. (fig. 10) Squeeze the excess water out of the filter and let it air dry for 24 hours before replacing. • DO NOT use a hair dryer or other forced hot air to dry the filter. • DO NOT operate the vacuum without the filter in place. • DO NOT operate the vacuum with a wet filter. NOTE: It is normal for your foam filter to discolor over time; it will not affect the filter performance. An accumulation of hair, string, and other debris may sometimes become lodged in the flexible air hose of the motorized brush, in the air inlet of the dustcup or wrapped around the brush roll. These areas must be free from debris for maximum cleaning performance. To clear blockages and clean the brush roll: 1 Ensure the vacuum is off. 2Press the release button located on the rear of the main body and remove the motorized brush. (fig. 11) 3To clear the air hose, flip back the connector to straighten the air passage (fig. 12) and carefully remove any debris lodged in the air hose. DO NOT USE SCISSORS OR OTHER SHARP OBJECTS AS THESE MAY DAMAGE THE HOSE. www.sharkclean.com 7 CARE AND MAINTENANCE - cont. fig. 13 fig. 15 fig. 14 fig. 17b fig. 16 fig. 17a 4Inspect the rotating brush for a build-up of debris.
