perations

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).
