does not indicate a problem. Switch off
the appliance and remove the plug from
the socket before cleaning the filters.

appliance (fig. J).
 Empty the container (fig. K).
 Remove the cartridge (28) from the
container by turning it clockwise (fig. L).

the main filter (30).

filter into a dustbin.
Warning! Do not brush or use
compressed air to clean the filter.
 Depending on its condition, rinse the
outside of the filter with water.
Allow the filter to dry for 24 hours
before re-inserting it.
Warning! Do not wash the inside of the
filter.

level. The filter is re-usable and should
be cleaned regularly.

or damaged. When replacing the dust
container filter, the pre-filter, main motor
filter and the exhaust filters have to be
