Read the instructions before using your vacuum cleaner, and keep them safe.
If you pass the cleaner on, pass on the instructions too.
important safeguards
Follow basic safety precautions, including the ones below. It’s quite a list, but most of them are
simple common sense.
1 The cleaner should only be used by or under the supervision of a responsible adult. It’s not a
toy – don’t let children play with it.
2 Don’t put the cleaner in any liquid, and don’t use it anywhere damp or wet.
3 Don’t use the cleaner near a gas, oil (including paraffin), or open fire. The flame may
be sucked towards the cleaner, causing a fire hazard.
4 Keep hair, clothing, fingers (and toes), away from the end doing the sucking, and from the
brush. It won’t drag you into the bin, but it may give you a bit of a start.
5 Stuff you mustn’t pick up:
a) don’t pick up any liquid – you’ll short the motor
b) don’t pick up stuff that may ignite spontaneously, like matches, bits of fire-lighter
c) don’t pick up anything burning or smouldering, like cigarette ends, ashes, or embers
– wait till they’re extinguished and cold
d) don’t pick up spillage from toner cartridges – the fine carbon particles may pass through
the filter, short circuit the motor, and burn it out
e) don’t pick up cement or plaster dust – they’ll combine with moisture in the air, clog the
filter, scour the bin, and maybe burn out the motor too
f) don’t pick up anything sharp – you may puncture the filter and damage the motor
g) don’t pick up anything biological – you’ll eventually have to clean it off the filter, and
there’s always the possibility that viral particles may pass through the filter, reach the air
outlet, and enter your air supply
6 If you use the cleaner outdoors (e.g. cleaning the car), connect it to the electricity supply via a
residual current device (RCD), with a rated residual operating current not exceeding 30mA.
Don’t let the cleaner get wet.
7 Don’t leave it unattended when plugged in.
8 Keep an eye on the cable, so it doesn’t catch on anything, or trip anyone up. Don’t run the
cleaner over the cable, you’ll damage it.
9 If you’re using the cleaner on stairs, sit it where it can’t topple, and keep it below you, so if it
does topple, it won’t land on you.
10 Don’t use the cleaner on people, animals, birds, or pets.
11 Unplug the cleaner and rewind the cable when not in use, before moving and before
cleaning.
12 Don’t use the cleaner if the bin is full – switch off, unplug, and empty it.
13 Don’t use the cleaner for any purpose other than those described in these instructions.
14 Don’t use accessories or attachments other than those we provide.
15 Don’t leave the cleaner in sunlight, prolonged exposure to UV may damage plastics.
16 Don’t use the cleaner if it’s damaged or malfunctions.
17 If the cable or plug is damaged, return the cleaner, to avoid hazard.
household use only
before using for the first time
Remove all packaging, but keep it in case you ever need to return the cleaner.
count the bits
In the box you’ll find an extendable tube, a turbo brush, a big brush, a crevice tool, a small
brush, a sofa brush, and a hose (with nozzle). They may be packed separately, so check all of the
packaging before you dispose of it.

filters
Keep the filters clean – if they get blocked, you’ll lose suction rapidly.
fitting the hose
1 Push the hose end into the inlet. You’ll hear a click as it locks into position.
2 Give it a gentle tug to check it’s fitted properly.
cable
3 Pull as much cable as you need from the back of the cleaner.
4 The yellow band round the cable tells you there’s about a metre left.
5 The red band about half a metre later tells you “Stop pulling, you’ve run out of cable!”.
6 Keep an eye on the cable so it doesn’t catch on anything, or trip anyone (including you).
carrying and moving the cleaner
7 Lift the cleaner only by the carrying handle.
8 When the cleaner is sitting on its wheels (normal position), you can move it around by pulling
gently (that’s gently), on the hose.
9 For stationary jobs like curtains, you may sit the cleaner up, with the handle at the top,
but don’t try to move it like this, or it’ll fall over.
choose the tool for the job
10 The tools will fit on the nozzle, or on the narrow end of the extendable tube.
11 You’ll have your own preferences, but here are a few tips for the first time user.
big brush normally used with the extendable tube, for floors and carpets:
Press the rear of the brush pedal to extend the bristles for floor coverings with
little or no pile.
Press the front of the brush pedal to retract the bristles for use on rugs, carpets,
and anything with pile.
turbo brush normally used with the extendable tube for floors and carpets, this has a
rotating brush, powered by suction, for deeper cleaning.
crevice tool as the name implies, down the sides of upholstery, in awkward spaces, nooks,
and crannies nothing else can reach.
small brush use it to remove pet hair, lint, and dust from blinds, and curtains, and to brush/
clean awkward corners.
sofa brush use this to remove pet hair, lint, and dust from upholstery, and other small, flat
areas – don’t use it on hanging curtains, as it doesn’t have the bristles necessary
to let air flow freely, use the small brush instead.
12 We suggest the big brush for the daily clean, the turbo for the weekly deep clean.
tubes
13 Fit the extendable tube to the nozzle for floors, carpets, or hard to reach places:
a) push the tube release towards the narrow end of the tube, and keep it pressed
b) pull out as much of the inner tube as you need – if you’re done, push it back
c) return the tube release to the locked position
14 Push the wide end of the extendable tube on to the nozzle.
15 Choose a tool, and push it onto the narrow end of the tube.
suction control
16 There are two ways to control the suction:
a) The suction control on the top rear of the cleaner – slide it towards max to increase the
cleaning power, towards min to decrease the power.
b) The suction control on the nozzle – move it towards the nozzle for maximum suction,
away from the nozzle, to reduce suction.

plug in
caution If you’ve accidentally pressed the on/off switch 3, the cleaner will work when you
plug it in. This could give you a bit of a start, so be careful.
17 Plug the cable into a socket near the area to be cleaned (switch the socket on, if it’s
switchable).
switching on
18 Press and release the on/off switch 3, to turn the cleaner on.
cleaning
19 Move the tool over the surface, cleaning a small area at a time.
20 When you move to a new area, overlap the previous area, to make sure none of the surface is
missed.
switching off
21 If you’ve finished, if you want to change tools, or if you just want to stop for a rest, press and
release the on/off switch 3, to turn the cleaner off.
finished cleaning?
22 Press and release the on/off switch 3, to turn the cleaner off.
23 Unplug the cleaner (switch the socket off first, if it’s switchable).
24 Stand clear of the cable, and press the C button – the cable will rewind.
25 Keep clear of the cable, as it rewinds at a fair lick. If it catches on anything, stop pressing, and
it’ll stop rewinding.
26 We’ve tried not to make it too powerful, to avoid wrecking your home, so you may need to
push the plug end into the storage area manually.
removing and emptying the bin
27 You don’t have to empty the bin after each use, but it’s a very good idea. Your cleaner will
happily work till it’s chock full, but you’ll be wasting energy swirling yesterday’s dust around.
Energy that could be better used sucking up today’s dust.
28 There’s a “bin full light” on top of the cleaner, behind the suction control.
29 If it lights, the bin is full – you should empty it right away.
30 Switch off, unplug, set it down on its wheels, and leave it for a minute, to let the dust settle.
31 Squeeze the locks on the hose end, and pull the hose out of the inlet (removing the hose isn’t
essential, but it makes life so much easier).
32 Squeeze the latch on the front of the cleaner into the cleaner, and open the cover.
33 Raise the handle on top of the bin, and lift the bin out of the cleaner.
34 Ease the bottom of the bin lock away from the catch, and rotate the bin lid backwards, on its
hinges, till it comes free of the bin.
35 Lower the bin into your dustbin, then turn it upside down to empty it.
36 Tap the side of the bin, to shake all the dirt loose.
, if you want to check the filters, jump to point 43, otherwise carry on.
37 Locate the rear of the bin lid on the hinges at the rear of the bin.
38 Rotate it forwards, till the bin lock is secured over the catch on the front of the bin.
39 Lower the bin into the cleaner, then push it gently back, towards the rear of the cleaner, to
lock it into place.
40 Lower the bin handle on top of the bin lid.
41 Close the cleaner – you’ll hear the latch click into place.
42 Push the hose end into the inlet. You’ll hear a click as it locks into position.
checking the filters
43 When you’ve emptied the bin, check the filters. Blocked filters quickly reduce suction, and
they’re easy to clean.

precautions
44 Spread out some newspaper – you’re likely to make a mess.
45 Wearing rubber gloves is a good idea – they’ll protect your fingers from anything nasty that’s
reached the filters.
remove the main filter
46 This filters the returning airflow.
47 It’s a HEPA filter, it’s expensive to replace, so be gentle with it. With careful handling, it should
last for years.
48 it’s fitted into the bottom of the bin.
49 Hold the bin in one hand, squeeze the catches on the front and rear of the main filter, and
pull it down and out of the bin.
50 Lift the foam out of the main filter.
51 Wash the foam in warm soapy water, rinse it thoroughly, squeeze it out, and leave it to air dry.
, Check that the foam is completely dry before replacing it on the main filter.
52 Tap the main filter gently over the newspaper, to dislodge any dirt.
53 If it’s really dirty, soak it in warm soapy water for a few minutes, rinse under a running tap, to
remove all trace of soap, then let it air dry.
, Check that the main filter is completely dry before replacing it in the cleaner.
54 Replace the foam in the top of the main filter – it’s a funny shape, so it’ll only fit one way
round.
plastic filter
55 This is mounted inside the bin – it’s not removable.
56 While the main filter is out of the bin, you can reach both the outside and the inside of the
plastic filter.
57 Tap it over the newspaper, to dislodge any dirt.
58 Anything stubborn can be brushed off (an old toothbrush is ideal for this).
replace the main filter
59 Push the main filter up into the bottom of the bin, till you hear the catches click into place.
60 Locate the rear of the bin lid on the hinges at the rear of the bin.
61 Rotate it forwards, till the bin lock is secured over the catch on the front of the bin.
62 Don’t put the bin back into the cleaner.
motor guard
63 You’ll find the motor guard at the rear of the space occupied by the bin.
64 Slide it up and out of its retaining slots.
65 Pull the fibre filter out of the motor guard.
66 Tap it gently over the newspaper, to dislodge any dirt.
67 If it’s really dirty, soak it in warm soapy water for a few minutes, rinse under a running tap, to
remove all trace of soap, then let it air dry.
, Check that the fibre filter is completely dry before replacing it in the cleaner.
68 Push it back into the rear of the motor guard.
69 Align the tabs on the sides of the motor guard with the slots at the rear of the bin
compartment, and slide the motor guard back into place – the finger grip must be at the top.
replace the bin
70 Lower the bin into the cleaner, then push it gently back, towards the rear of the cleaner, to
lock it into place.
71 Lower the bin handle on top of the bin lid.
6
outlet filter
72 Lift the outlet filter out of the top of the cleaner – it’s a HEPA filter too, so be gentle with it.
73 Tap the filter gently over the newspaper, to dislodge any dirt.
74 If it’s really dirty, soak it in warm soapy water for a few minutes, rinse under a running tap, to
remove all trace of soap, then let it air dry.
, Check that the outlet filter is completely dry before replacing it in the cleaner.
75 Lower it into the outlet on top of the cleaner.
close the cleaner
76 Close the cleaner – you’ll hear the latch click into place.
77 Push the hose end into the inlet. You’ll hear a click as it locks into position.
cleaning the cleaner
78 Switch the cleaner off and unplug it before cleaning.
79 Don’t put any part of the cleaner in a dishwasher.
80 Don’t use harsh or abrasive cleaning agents or solvents.
81 Wipe external surfaces of the cleaner with a damp cloth.
82 Wipe the tools and tubes with a damp cloth.
83 A dab of washing-up liquid will remove stubborn stains, but clean it off afterwards, or it may
stain.
timing
84 Clean the cleaner frequently. Basically, the better you look after it, the longer it’ll last. Keep an
eye on it as you use it, and examine the filters when you empty the bin. If anything needs
cleaning, do it there and then, don’t put it off, in case you forget.
blockages
85 No matter how careful you are, sooner or later you’ll block the cleaner.
don’t panic!
If the cleaner starts to get noisy and you start to lose suction, don’t worry, it’s not the end of the
world, you’ve probably just blocked it up.
1 Switch the cleaner off and unplug it.
2 Spread a newspaper on the floor, you’re going to make a mess.
3 If you’re using one of the tools, remove and check it first.
4 Turn the turbo brush over, press the tab, and remove the door, to check the turbo.
5 Remove the hose and check it.
6 Use something blunt, like the blunt end of a ball-point pen to dislodge any blockage.
7 The plastic filter is the cleaner’s first line of defence, so it’s likely to be the first one to block up,
if you’re using the cleaner to pick up anything dodgy.
8 You can see the top of the plastic filter through the side of the bin.
9 Remove the bin, and check the main filter and its foam protector.
10 The motor guard and outlet filter shouldn’t cause a problem, but check them anyway, just in
case.
11 If you haven’t cleared the blockage by now, try again.
12 Still not clear? – Ring the helpline.

connection
The cleaner doesn’t need an earth. It has a 13A BS1362 fuse in a 13A BS1363 plug.
To replace the plug, fit the blue wire to N, and the brown wire to L. Fit the cord
grip. If in doubt, call an electrician.
Don’t use a non-rewireable/moulded plug unless the fuse cover is in place. If you
remove the plug, dispose of it.
