The paper filter must be replaced if the window
on the filter replacement indicator is completely

The paper filter should be replaced even if it
does not appear to be full because fine dust can
block the pores in the surface of the filter.

What do I do, if ...
Special accessories
... it is difficult to push the nozzle
Reduce the power setting on the appliance. This
will not reduce cleaning efficiency.
... the motor thermal cut-out is activated
If the motor is overloaded, e.g. due to a full
filter bag or blocked accessory, the thermal cutout shuts down the motor. In this case, switch
off the appliance, unplug from the mains, and
leave the motor to cool down.
Check paper filter bag, suction tube and suction
hose; remove any blockage.
The appliance can be switched on again after
approximately 30 minutes.
... the fuse has blown
The fuse may blow if you use other electrical
appliances with high power consumption on the
same electric circuit at the same time as the
vacuum cleaner is in use.
This can be avoided if you set the electronic
power adjuster to the lowest power level and
then select a higher level after switching the
appliance on.
Your vacuum cleaner can be fitted with a gentle
startup control which reduces the starting
current to the motor and therefore prevents the
electric circuit cut-out being triggered under
normal conditions. It is possible that there will
be a delay of about 4 seconds in the appliance
starting up on the lowest power level.
The turbo-brush makes the care of carpets and
hard floors easier. The rotary motion, of its
brush gently loosens shortpille carpets where
the dirt has been trodden in.
Special nozzle
For use on parquet tiled and, hard floors.
... the paper filter is damaged at some point
and the motor protection filter becomes dirty
Remove motor protection filter, clean (shake
out) and replace.
Insert new paper filter.
