When completely charged, the GoVac provides over 12
minutes of full cleaning power.
When charging for the first time, allow to charge
uninterrupted for at least 24 hours. Thereafter, a 12 -16
hour charge will renew the GoVac battery.
Decreased operating time may indicate the battery has
built up a charging resistance. To recharge, first completely
exhaust the battery, recharge it, then exhaust it again before
recharging a second time. This procedure may be required
more than once.
When not charging, be sure to unplug the GoVac from
the charger.

To clean small areas, detach the Handle by depressing
the button where the bottom of the Handle slides into the
GoVac and pull the entire Handle assembly out. Use the
GoVac by holding the built-in hand grip.
When done, replace the Handle (if detached) and store
for the next use.
Maintenance
The key to maximum performance is emptying the Dust Cup
frequently and cleaning the Filter. Emptying the Dust Cup after
each use, and cleaning the Filter periodically, will help your
GoVac operate at peak efficiency.
Make sure that the GoVac is in the “OFF” position.
1.
2.
3.
Carry the Dust Cup, with Filter in place, to a waste container.
Remove Filter, empty debris, then replace Filter in Dust Cup.

away from you until it fits securely.
5.
6.

With GoVac facing away from you, grasp Dust Cup in
right hand and turn it toward you (toward the back of
the GoVac).
Clean exterior surfaces with a soft cloth dampened with water
only. Do not use a strong detergent or other cleaner - this
may damage the finish. Always unplug the GoVac from the
electrical outlet before cleaning the surface.
After heavy usage, you may clean the Filter by gently rinsing it
in a bowl of water and mild dish detergent. Rinse thoroughly
under running water and make certain it is completely dry
before replacing it. You may also purchase replacement Filters.
Use only BISSELL Filters in the GoVac. If the Filter
becomes damaged or becomes too dirty
to wash, you may purchase new filters by calling
BISSELL Consumer Services.
WARNING:
Never operate the GoVac
without the Filter in place.
Doing so may damage the
motor and void the warranty.
