Operations
Variable suction power control
The variable suction power control is located
on the back of the vacuum. Turn the control
toward the larger dots for maximum suction.
Turn the control toward the smaller dots to
minimize suction for lightly soiled areas or
delicate fabrics.
Air flow regulator
Open the air flow regulator by sliding the
regulator back towards the handle to an open
position to reduce suction for delicate fabrics.
Close the air flow regulator by sliding the regulator
down to the closed position for full suction.
Bagless or bagged vacuum option
The BISSELL OptiClean is a unique vacuum that
offers the option to vacuum using a bagless dirt
cup or a traditional paper bag. To use as a bagless
vacuum, simply place the dirt cup inside the
vacuum cleaner. To use as a bagged vacuum,
attach a dust bag to the dust bag holder and place
inside the vacuum cleaner.
Clean filter indicator
The clean filter indicator is located between the
power button and the automatic cord rewind
button. It will monitor your air flow and let you
know when it is time to clean or replace your
filters. If the indicator turns orange while you
are vacuuming, your filters need to be cleaned
or replaced (if using as a bagged vacuum,
the dust bag may need to be replaced). If the
indicator remains orange, even after cleaning
or replacing your filters (or replacing the dust
bag), turn the vacuum off and check for a clog
in the hose or tools.
Note: The indicator may turn orange when
using the tools due to the restricted airflow.
This does not necessarily mean that the
filters need to be cleaned or replaced (or
the dust bag is full). If the indicator does
not turn off once the tool is removed,
check for a clog in the hose/tools or clean
or replace your filters (or replace the dust
bag).
