Notes on the energy label
This vacuum cleaner is a general purpose vacuum cleaner with a
primary hose.
To achieve the energy efficiency rating and cleaning effectiveness rating on carpets, please use the interchangeable universal
nozzle.
To achieve the energy efficiency rating and cleaning effectiveness rating on hard floors with gaps and cracks, please use the
supplied hard-floor nozzle without the clip-in edge cleaning
bristles.
These calculations are based on the Commission Delegated
Regulation (EU) No. 665/2013 of 3rd May 2013 supplementing
Directive 2010/30/EU. Unless otherwise stated, all the procedures referred to in these instructions were carried out in
accordance with the EN 60312-1:2017* standard.
*As the motor service test is carried out with the dust collector
empty, the stated motor service life must be increased by 10% for
tests with the dust collector half filled.

If you are vacuuming up larger particles, make sure that you vacuum
them up successively and carefully
to ensure that the vacuum channels
of the floor tool do not become
blocked.
If necessary, you should raise the
nozzle in order to better vacuum up
the dirt particles.
!Caution
Floor tools are subject to a certain
amount of wear, depending on the
type of hard floors you have (e.g.
rough, rustic tiles). Therefore, you
must check the underside of the
floor tool at regular intervals. Worn
undersides of floor tools may have
sharp edges that can damage sensitive hard floors, such as parquet
or linoleum. The manufacturer
does not accept any responsibility
for damage caused by worn floor
tools.

Filter care
Cleaning the plate filter
This function constantly monitors
whether your vacuum cleaner is reaching its optimum power level. The
indicator light lets you know when
you need to clean the plate filter, so
that the vacuum cleaner can reach
its optimum power level once more.

„SelfClean“-function
Figure 25
The indicator lights up blue when
the appliance is working at its optimum level. Once the indicator turns
red and flashes, the appliance switches off automatically Filter cleaning
is activated and performed by the
integrated cleaning motor.
If the appliance cleans three times in
quick succession, this is probably
due to a dirty fluff filter or a blockage.
In this case, the appliance automatically adjusts to the lowest power
setting and the indicator lights up
red.
● Switch the appliance off, empty
the dust container and clean the
fluff filter according to the instructions in "Cleaning the fluff filter".
