01 SAFETY INFORMATION
CAUTION
Before activating the vacuum cleaning robot, make sure that
the dust bin is assembled.
- If the dust bin is not inserted, vacuum cleaning robot will not
operate.
Never use vacuum cleaning robot in locations with combustible
material such as.
- Locations with candles or desk lamps on the floor.
- Locations with unattended fires (fire or embers).
- Locations with gasoline, distilled alcohol, thinner, ashtrays with
burning cigarettes, etc.
Vacuum cleaning robot is for domestic use only. Do not use it in the following
locations.
- Attics, basements, warehouses, industrial buildings, separate rooms distant from the
main building, locations exposed to wet or damp conditions such as bathrooms or wash
rooms, and narrow and highly situated locations such as tables or shelves. Critical damage
(abnormal operation and breakage) may occur when used in these locations.
Open all doors to clean all rooms.
- When a door is closed, the vacuum cleaning robot will not be able to enter that room.
- However, make sure to close the doors to the main entrance, the veranda and the
bathroom, and any other rooms where the vacuum cleaning robot may fall to a lower floor.
Do not use the cleaner on a black floor.
- The vacuum cleaning robot may not run normally in this case.
For carpets with long tassels, fold the tassels under the carpet.
- Unfolded tassels may result in critical damage to the carpet and
the machine itself, as they get caught in the driving wheel or the
power brush.
When the cliff sensor is polluted, the vacuum cleaning robot
may be in danger of falling down the stairs.
This may cause personal injury and critical damage to the
product.
To prevent risk, install the VIRTUAL GUARDs (Fence Mode
setting) in front of dagerous areas. Clean the sensor window
and camera.

hair, this may result in injury.
- If a child or pet is in the way of the vacuum cleaning robot, it may
be identified as an obstacle and the area may not cleaned.
- When the Power Switch is turned off, it will cut off the power
supply and deactivate all functions.
When installing the charger station, do not leave the power
cord exposed on the floor.
- When the vacuum cleaning robot automatically recharges or
passes by the charger station, it may drag the power cord around
with it.
Always keep the power cord of the charger plugged into the
outlet.
- Although the vacuum cleaning robot has a self-charging function,
if the power cord of the charger station is unplugged, it cannot
charge its battery automatically.

CONVENIENT VIRTUAL GUARD FUNCTION
You can confine the vacuum cleaning robot to a particular section by using the Fence (virtual wall)
mode.
• What is ceiling shape recognition (Visionary
mapping plus™)?
This function recognizes the shape of the ceiling
using the camera on top to identify the area to be
cleaned and determines the best way to pass over
and clean every section of the floor.
DELICATE CLEANING OF EVERY CORNER
Since the vacuum cleaning robot cleans the floor in a sequential way ( ) along the map
determined by the ceiling shape recognition function, it cleans every corner of the floor.
VARIOUS CLEANING MODES
Various cleaning modes are provided to meet all your needs.

Cleaning the Dust Bin and the Filters
First, empty the dust bin before cleaning it.
■ When separating the dust bin, take care not to spill the dust out of the
dust bin.
■ Empty the dust bin in the following cases.
1. When dust has accumulated inside the dust bin.
2. When the suction power suddenly becomes weak.
3. When the noise suddenly increases.
1. Press the Dust Bin Eject (PUSH) button and pull the dust bin to
separate the dust bin.
2. Separate the dust bin cover by pulling it in the direction of the arrow
in the figure.
3. Remove the filter and the mesh filter from the dustbin.
NOTE
Filter
Mesh filter
4. Shake the dust from the filter, Mesh filter and dustbin.
❈ You can clean it with water.
After cleaning it with water :
1. Dustbin : Wipe the water off completely.
2. Filter, Mesh filter : Dry them completely and then
reassemble them.
5. Reassemble the filter and mesh filter onto the dustbin.
- Assemble the mesh filter while the grid side is facing
downward. If the orientation is not correct, you will not be
able to assemble it.
CAUTION
If the dustbin is assembled without the filter being mounted, the error code C08 occurs.
Make sure to mount the filter.

• Because the dust in the dust bin may come out, separate the
dust bin first before cleaning the power brush.
CAUTION
1. After checking whether there are any foreign substances, press
the hook that is fixing the brush cover to separate it.
2. Lift the power brush up from the main unit.
3. Remove any foreign substances such as long hairs or strings
wrapped around the power brush using a cleaning brush or a
vacuum cleaner.

4. After a cleaning run, first fix the side of the power brush
opposite to the Power Switch and then fix the other side.
5. Insert the side into the two grooves and assemble it by
slightly sliding it down until it clicks into place.
CAUTION
• To prevent the vacuum cleaning robot from becoming clogged, be careful not to vacuum tooth
picks or cotton swabs.
• When removing foreign substances becomes difficult, contact a customer care center.
• Because the power brush vacuums the dust on the floor, long strings or hair can become
wrapped around the brush. Check and clean the power brush regularly.

1. Check whether the side rotating brush is bent or whether there
are any foreign substances stuck on the brush.
2. Wearing rubber gloves, wrap the side rotating brush with a cloth
using hot water for about 10 seconds and wipe it on the cloth.
3. Turning the side rotating brush, repeat the procedures in Step 2.
4. If hair or string is wrapped between the main unit and the side
rotating brush, undo the screw of the side rotating brush using
a (+) driver to remove it. When reassembling the brush, check
the “L” mark on the edge-cleaning side rotating brush and the
“L” mark on the main unit and then reassemble the side rotating
brush. (Letter “R” is carved at the right side rotating brush.)
NOTE

Because the side rotating brush easily attracts hair and other foreign substances, make sure to
clean it frequently.
Excessive foreign substances on the side rotating brush can damage the brush.
