Maintaining the filter
CAUTION
• Do not dry it near a microwave or fire.
• Do not clean it by putting it into a washer or using an unapproved detergent. (See
page 5).
• After cleaning, dry it completely in the shade.
- If you use the filter when it is not completely dried
- Moisture or water may enter the motor and cause a problem.
- The dust and moisture in the inlet solidifies and this drastically decreases the
sucking power.
- The filter may smell.
• Dry the part in the shade as drying it in the sun for a long time may deform or discolor
it.

heard. In this case, remove the item clogging the product.
If a foreign object is caught while you use the product, the drum will not rotate. In this case, turn the
power of the cleaner off and remove the object.
Since the safety device is activated in this case, please operate the product again after about 10
seconds.
1. Press the button to separate the air inlet and then separate
the air inlet from the main body.
