For safety reasons, only authorised
after-sales service personnel are
permitted to carry out repairs and fit
replacement parts to the vacuum
cleaner.
The vacuum cleaner should be
protected from outside weather
conditions, moisture and sources of
heat.

use on building sites.
=> Vacuuming up building rubble
could damage the vacuum cleaner.
Switch off the vacuum cleaner when it
is not in use.
At the end of its life, the vacuum
cleaner should be disposed of in an
appropriate manner.
Disposal information
Packaging
The packaging is designed to protect
the vacuum cleaner from being
damaged during transportation.
It is made of environment-friendly
materials and can be recycled.
Dispose of packaging that is no longer
required at an appropriate recycling
point.
Used vacuum cleaner
Used vacuum cleaners still contain
many recyclable materials.
Therefore, please take used vacuum
cleaners to your retailer or recycling
centre so that they can be recycled.
For current disposal methods, please
enquire at your appliance dealership or
local council.
Please note
! Only
connect the appliance to a
socket that is protected by at least a
16 amp circuit breaker.
If a circuit breaker should trip when you
switch on the vacuum cleaner, this
may be because other electrical
appliances which have a high current
draw are connected to the same
power circuit.
To prevent the circuit breaker from
tripping, select the lowest power
setting before switching the vacuum
cleaner on, and increase the power
only once it is running.

Frequently asked questions and answers
What kind of dirt can be vacuumed up using
the vacuum cleaner?
All kinds of household dirt can be vacuumed up
using the BX3. When vacuuming fine particles,
note that the particulate filter cartridge, foam
filter and lint filter must be cleaned at regular
intervals to guarantee the optimum function of
the vacuum cleaner.
Should the dust container be emptied after
each use of the vacuum cleaner?
The dust container should be emptied after each
use for hygienic reasons, or at the latest when
the maximum level (see the mark) is reached.
How often should the particulate filter be
cleaned/rinsed through?
Ideally, the particulate filter should be cleaned
after each use, especially after vacuuming fine
particles, either by tapping it or rinsing it, depending on the amount of dirt.
The particulate filter cartridge, foam filter and lint
filter must, at the latest, be cleaned when the
maximum level (see the mark) has been reached.
How often should the washable microexhaust filter be cleaned/rinsed through?
If your vacuum cleaner is equipped with a
washable micro-exhaust filter, it should be
cleaned regularly for hygienic reasons by
tapping it, and must be rinsed through at least
once every 6 months.
How often should I replace the HEPA filter?
If your vacuum cleaner is equipped with a HEPA
exhaust filter, this should be replaced once a year.
What is the best way to transport my vacuum
cleaner?
The BX3 can be transported easily using the
ergonomic carrying handle, e.g. for vacuuming
the stairs. It is best to hold/carry the suction
pipe with the nozzle in the other hand.
