CHARGING THE CORDLESS SWEEPER
1a. Connect the charger plug to the charging jack or hole on the back of the sweeper.
Plug the the charging adapter into the wall outlet. (120V., 60Hz.) Use only
TechWorld Charger AD-1215-UL8. (Fig. 10)
OR
1b. Connect the charger plug on the charging jack of charging stand (Fig. 11). Plug the
charging adapter into the wall outlet (120V., 60Hz). Use only Techworld Charger
AD-1215-UL8, and place the unit in the charging stand. (Fig. 12)
2. This cordless sweeper is powered by Ni-Cd batteries. Before first use, they must be
charged for a minimum of 20 hours.
3. When recharging the unit, the "On/Off" switch must be in the "OFF" position.
4. The charging light indicator on the top of the sweeper will illuminate to indicate that
the sweeper is properly charging.
5. When the battery is running low, the speed indicator lights will start to flash. To
recharge, repeat step #1 above. Charging times will vary depending upon the
amount of usage between charging cycles.
Note: Your sweeper is highly advanced and has electronic controls that optimize the
cleaning ability and durability of the sweeper. Please review the following instructions
carefully to ensure that all features are utilized for best performance.
1. The electronic controls of your sweeper will prevent the batteries from being deeply
discharged and will indicate this by the speed indicator lights flashing. The sweeper
will then stop operating. This is normal. To start charging the unit, turn the sweeper
off, plug in the adapter or the charging stand and attach the sweeper to charge.
2. When the sweeper on/off switch is depressed the sweeper will slowly come up to
speed. This is done to optimize the life of all components of the sweeper and is
normal.
3. When first started, the sweeper will start in the highest speed “III” to prevent
overloading the unit when starting on heavy carpets. Other speeds can then be
selected by depressing the speed selector switch.
4. For best cleaning performance, use speed “I” (low) on floors, speed “II” (medium) on
carpets, and use speed “III” (high) for turbo deep cleaning. These are guide lines and
you will find the optimum speed settings for your surfaces and debris to be picked up
through use and experience.
5. The sweeper will automatically try to maintain speeds on all surfaces. The unit may
appear to be pulsing during use to maintain it’s speed, this is normal. If this occurs,
please select the next highest speed to gain optimum performance.
6. To protect your sweeper and it’s components, the sweeper is provided with an
electronic overload circuit. If something were to jam or overload the brush bar
system, the units speed indicators will flash and the unit will stop operating, this is
normal. If this occurs, first turn the unit off, then remove the obstruction before turning
the unit on again.
NOTE: If, when you place the sweeper to recharge and the charging indicator
light does NOT illuminate, then press the On/Off button once to turn
the sweeper off. The charging indicator light should now light up.
NOTE:
Peak performance may only be realized after the unit has been charged
and discharged two (2) or three (3) times.
IMPORTANT: To maintain peak performance of your cordless sweeper, it is
recommended that the unit be fully discharged, then completely recharged at least once a month.
