• Fill any suitable household container with clean water. Mix a few drops of liquid detergent with

the water.

• Dip a soft cloth or sponge in the water and wash the surface to be cleaned to loosen any dirt.

• Switch the Main Unit ON.

• Place the Wiper Blade horizontally against the window.

• Starting from the top of the window, move the Window Cleaner downwards using smooth, even

strokes, from one side of the window to the other (see 1).

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE

CHARGING BATTERY PACK

!

WARNING the rating plate of the Battery Charger Unit.

• Your X5 VAC contains 3 Lithium Ion Batteries sealed inside the Battery Pack.

• To charge the Battery Pack, use the Battery Charger supplied. The Battery Pack can be connected

to the Main Unit (see 1). Alternatively, the Battery Pack may be disconnected from the Main Unit and

charged separately (see 2).

Note: If you have obtained a spare Battery Pack, this can be charged separately without being

connected to the Main Unit.

• Before charging the Battery Pack attached to the Main Unit, ensure the Power Switch is OFF.

• Initially, Battery Pack must be charged uninterrupted for 7 hours. When fully charged, the X5 VAC will

operate for up to 15 minutes. Recharging the Battery Pack will take about 7 hours.

• To charge the Battery Pack, connect the Charger Unit to the electrical outlet and plug the Charger

Cord into the Charger Socket located on the Battery Pack.

• The Charging Light on the Battery Pack will turn ON to indicate that the Battery Pack is charging. Once

fully charged, the Charging Light will turn off.

Note: While charging, the Battery Pack and the Charger Unit may become warm to the touch.

This is normal and is no cause for concern.

• Once the Battery Pack is charged, unplug the Charger Unit from both the Charger Port of the X5 VAC

and from the electrical outlet.

Tip: To prolong battery life, completely discharge and recharge the Battery Pack every 1 – 2 months.

!

CAUTION

Do not charge or store the Battery Pack at temperatures below 4º C/39.2°F & above 40º C/ 104°F.

Do not place the Battery Pack in direct sunlight.

DISCONNECTING & CONNECTING BATTERY PACK

The Battery Pack connected to the Main Body may need to be removed and replaced with another Battery Pack if obtained

(available from the Customer Service where you purchased your unit from) for the following reasons:

• During use the batteries may become run down. If you would like to continue

cleaning, and have acquired a spare Battery Pack, you can swap Battery Packs .

• After prolonged use the Battery Pack may need replacement.

1 2

Disconnecting the Battery Pack

• With one hand, hold the Handle and press the Battery Release Button (see 1).

• With the other hand, grip the lower (curved part) of the Battery Pack and pull away from the Main Body in a straight line (see 2).

!

WARNING

The Battery Pack is clipped to the Main Unit and some force is required to separate it from the Main Unit.

Connecting the Battery Pack

• With one hand, hold the Handle. With the other hand, align the male

terminal on the Battery Pack with the female terminal on the Main Unit (see 1).

• Push the terminals together in a straight line until the Battery Pack is

positioned flush with the Main Body. Ensure that the Battery Release Button

engages fully with the Battery Pack (see 2).

Using the Liquid Lifter with Suction Tool

• The Liquid Lifter is designed to lift liquids and clean soiled areas from carpets, upholstery and hard surfaces.

!

WARNING

is safe to proceed.

• Hold the Handle and slide the Power Switch ON. Move the Suction Tool over wet spills by pressing it

down onto the cleaning surface and moving it gently back and forth over the area to be cleaned.

Do not shake or use jerky movements.

Continue until no more liquid can be removed (see 1).

• If the wet area is soiled: Apply a cleaning solution to the soiled area and use the brush on the

Suction Tool to gently scrub and loosen the dirt before sucking up the dirt and liquid.

• If there is a dry area that is soiled: Lightly spray or dampen the area with a soft cloth, apply a

cleaning solution to the soiled area, gently scrub the area with the brush to loosen the dirt,

followed by sucking up the dirt and liquid using the Suction Tool.

• When the Storage Tank has reached its maximum capacity (Max Fill Line) (see 2), stop and slide

the Power Switch OFF. Then empty the Storage Tank.

Note: Once the maximum capacity of the Storage Tank is reached, the Release Pin at the top of

the Liquid Lifter will start rising and the suction force will diminish or stop (even though the X5 VAC

Motor is still running). This is a built in safety measure and an indication that the Storage Tank is full

and must be emptied before continued use (see 3).

During the process of sucking up liquids, keep an eye on the level of liquid in the Storage Tank. Once the maximum fill line is reached, stop and empty the Storage Tank.

Tip: By taking immediate action after a spill, permanent staining can be prevented.

Tip: Ensure that the nozzle is angled at about 45 degrees to the cleaning surface to maximize

suction strength.

DISPOSING OF DIRT AND DEBRIS

• For best performance and to maintain suction power, it is important to empty

and clean the Dust Cup, Mesh Filter and Fabric Filter after use.

• The Dust Cup is transparent, allowing you to see how much dust and dirt has

accumulated inside the Dust Cup. Once the dust and dirt have reached a level

close to the Mesh Filter, this is an indication to stop and empty the Dust Cup.

WARNING

Cup that the Mesh Filter becomes covered or immersed. The Mesh Filter must

at all times be above the accumulated dirt and debris.
