15 Troubleshooting
Noisy operation
Clean the Filters and empty the Dust Canister
Clean the Filters and empty the Dust Canister.
Suction Not Strong
Check for blockages and unblock
Check that the Suction Relief Valve on the hose handle is
closed.
Over-heating / Stopping
Floor Brush hard to push
Clean the Filters, empty the Dust Canister, check for
blockages and unblock then allow it to cool for up to hour
before trying to restart.
Due to the strong suction of your vacuum cleaner, it may be
difficult to push, especially over thick carpet. Rather than
force the Floor Head, lift the Floor Head momentarily to
allow air to flow into the vacuum releasing the built up
suction pressure, then continue vacuuming.
Slide open the vacuum Suction Relief Valve located on the
hose handle. This will reduce suction to the floor head.
