Problem Why won’t the vacuum cleaner pick up? Solution The dirt container is full. Empty the dirt container > Chapter 5.1, 'Emptying the dirt container'. The filters are dirty. Clean the filter > Chapter 5.2, 'Cleaning dirt container and pre-motor filter' or > Chapter 5.3, 'Check the post-motor filter'. Tool/accessory, extension tube or suction hose is blocked. Remove the obstruction. If necessary, use a long wooden stick (e.g. a broomstick) to do this. The air vent is open. Close the air vent (Fig. 4.6). The attached tool/accessory, is unsuitable. Change the tool/ accessory, > Chapter 3.2, 'Selecting a tool/accessory'. The position of the 'carpet/hard floor' selector (Fig. 4.4/Fig. 4.5) is inappropriate. Set the 'carpet/hard floor' selector to the correct position for the type of floor, > Chapter 4.2, 'How to Use'. Why does my vacuum cleaner have no power? The motor thermostat may have tripped. If this has happened, unplug the vacuum cleaner. Remove and empty the dirt container and check the hose for blockages. Clean the filters and allow the vacuum cleaner to cool for approximately 1 hour (if you have washed the filters you will need to wait 24 hours for the filters to fully dry before putting them back into the vacuum cleaner).
