Air flow indicator
The air flow Indicator tells you when the air flow
in your vacuum is reduced due to dirty filters or a
clog in the hose. The air flow indicator will remain
green while the unit is running until the airflow is
reduced by a clog or dirty filter. At that time, it begins
to change to red or black. When it is fully red, the
airflow is significantly reduced or clogged by a dirty
filter. Follow the steps on page 11 to clean your
filters. All filters in the vacuum should be cleaned or
replaced when the air flow indicator turns red.
If the indicator turns black, it means you have a clog
in your hose. To check and remove the clog, remove
the hose from the unit by turning the Twist ‘n Snap
hose to the right. Try to visually locate the clog. Once
you have done this, use a blunt long object such as a
broom handle to loosen and remove the debris. Once
this is completed, reassemble the hose to the unit,
If the indicator remains red or black with the
vacuum running, follow the steps on page 15 to
check for and clear clogs.
NOTE: When your vacuum is turned off,
the air flow indicator will go to the red
color setting. The air flow Indicator only
detects reductions in airflow when the
vacuum power is on.

Tip:
Hair, string and small objects can block
the vacuum hose or tools. Check them
occasionally for obstructions.
NOTICE:
The Floor Brush will continue
to rotate while you use your
vacuum for above floor cleaning.
To prevent carpet damage, do
not lean on the vacuum or let the
Powerfoot tilt forward.
CAUTION:
The rotating floor brush
continues to rotate while
tools are in use. To reduce
the risk of injury from
moving parts, always
move the cleaner with the
carrying handle. Always
place vacuum cleaner
on the floor with handle
in upright position when
using tools. Never place
your fingers under the
cleaner when it is
running. Never place
powerfoot on furniture or
uneven surfaces. Do not
place vacuum cleaner
close enough to objects
to pull them into
rotating brush.
