Air Flow Regulator
Open the air flow regulator by sliding the button
in the direction of the arrow to an open position
to reduce suction for fabrics such as draperies.
Close the air flow regulator by sliding the
button to the closed position for full suction.

while you are cleaning, the dust bag needs to
be replaced. The bag may appear to be full or
only partially full depending upon the type of
debris picked up. Fine particles can block the
airflow in the bag and reduce suction before
the bag is full. If the bag change indicator
continues to display the red color even after
changing the dust bag, turn the vacuum off and
check for a clog in the hose or tools.
Storage Position

a nozzle support that can be used to park the
nozzle during pauses in cleaning, while
transporting the cleaner or while in storage.
