Switch off and pull out the mains plug before changing the micro-fifter. |
Changing the micro-filter/ultra-micro-filter is- necessary: *
For appliances with no micro-filter indicator - when the dustbag full indicator
lights up, even when a clean dustbag has been inserted, with the appliance switched
on, hold the head/nozzle upwards or off the floor, ifthe light remains on, this indicates
the micro-filter should be changed. We recommend changing the microfilter with
every fifth bag.

Motor protection filter
The motor protection filter is a permanent filter and does not have to be changed
regularly. Exception: if it has been damaged. See “What to do if ...”.

Transportation and storage |
ance, siide the floor cleaning head or the
ROTOSOFT 1000 Turbo-brush into the storage rail.
What to do when... |
..the motor protection is activated?
When the paper dustbag is full or blocked or any of the accessories are blocked the
~over-heating protection for the motor is activated. Switch off and unplug the vacuum
cleaner and allow the motor to cool down. |
Checkthe paper dustbag and accessories and remove any blockages. The cleaner
can be switcned on again after 30 minutes. |
..the fuse blows or trips?
If you connect other electrical appliances with a high wattage to the same mains cir-
cuit and use them at the same time as the vacuum cleaner, this can trip the fuse.
This can be avoided if you set the electronic power control to 250 W before you
switch on, and only select a higher output level after switching on.
..the thread-collectors are worn out?
If the thread-collectors (B) at the suction opening
are worn out or stuck together, you can fit ones.
They can be ordered from the AEG Service Centre
under the ET-No. 668 900 560. |
..the wheels of the floor cleaning head are
hard to move?
Remove any hairs or threads which have become
or A wrapped round the axle of the roller. The wheels
[16 | a can be removed for cleaning. Pull roller (A) as ilius-
trated. Remove hairs and threads. When replacing
it, the semi-circular axle-head must point inwards. If the roller axle is inserted wrong
