THIS APPLIANCE IS INTENDED FOR NORMAL DOMESTIC USE ONLY
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Assembly
Lie machine flat and attach cleaner head by sliding it on until it clicks. Stand vacuum up straight,
attach wand to hose and push into place until it clicks. Push wand down into hose and attach tool
to the side of the machine.
Using your Dyson
Press foot pedal and recline handle to use. The stabiliser stand will automatically lift up. To switch
‘ON’, depress power button in front of handle. When finished cleaning, push machine into an upright
position and stabiliser wheels will automatically drop. Use the bin carrying handle to carry
the machine.
Caution:
(i) When returning to the upright position, ensure that the stabiliser wheels are fully engaged before
releasing the cleaner.
(ii) Do not press the cyclone release button while carrying the machine or it could fall and
cause injury.
Please note:
(i) Fine dust such as plaster or flour should only be vacuumed in very small amounts.
(ii) Consult your flooring manufacturer’s recommended instructions before vacuuming and caring
for your flooring, rugs and carpets. Some carpets will fuzz if a rotating brushbar is used when
vacuuming. If this is the case, we recommend vacuuming in hard floors mode and consulting
with your flooring manufacturer. (See ‘Hard floors or carpets’ section.)
(iii) If used in a garage for car cleaning, care should be taken to wipe the soleplate and wheels
with a dry cloth after vacuuming to clean off any sand, dirt, or pebbles which could damage
delicate floors.
Hard floors or carpets
The brushbar will always default to ‘ON’ (spinning) each time you switch on the machine and recline
it for cleaning. The brushbar will automatically stop if it becomes obstructed. If the brushbar stops
during use, please refer to the ‘Clearing brushbar obstructions’ section.
To switch the brushbar off (e.g. for hard floors), recline the machine and turn it ‘ON’, then press the
brushbar ‘on/off’ button – the brushbar will stop spinning.
High-reach cleaning
Caution:
(i) Powerful suction can cause the hose to ‘pull back’ – please take care.
(ii) To avoid personal injury and to prevent the machine from falling when cleaning stairs,
do not work with the vacuum above you on the stairs.
To release the wand, open the wand cap. Extend the red tube until the handle slides off the machine.
Tools can be attached to either the hose or wand. Ensure wand cap is closed when wand is not in use.
Emptying the Clear binTM
Caution:
(i) Switch ‘OFF’ and unplug machine before emptying the bin.
Empty as soon as the dirt reaches the level of the MAX mark – do not overfill. To remove the
clear binTM from the machine press the button at rear of carrying handle. To release the dirt, press
the red bin release button. The British Allergy Foundation is a UK national charity with the
aim of improving awareness, prevention and treatment of allergies. The British Allergy Foundation
Seal of Approval is a UK-registered trademark.
Please note:
(i) Do not use the machine without the clear binTM in place.

5/12/07 09:44:15
(i) Do not immerse the whole cyclone in water or pour water into the cyclones.
(ii) Ensure bin is completely dry before replacing.
Please note:
(i) Do not use detergents, polishes or air fresheners to clean the bin.
(ii) Do not put bin in a dishwasher.
(iii) When vacuuming, certain carpets may generate small static charges in the clear bin™.
These are entirely harmless and are not associated with the mains supply. To minimise
any effect from this, do not put your hand or insert any object into the clear bin™ unless
you have first emptied it and rinsed it out with cold water.
Washing your filters
Caution:
(i)
Switch ‘OFF’ and unplug machine before removing the filters.
(ii)
Ensure filters are completely dry before refitting to machine.
This machine has two filters, located as shown. It is important to check your filters regularly
and wash at least every 3 months according to instructions, to maintain performance.
The filter in the ball should be rinsed and tapped out until the water runs clean, then tapped
out again to ensure all excess water is removed. This will normally require up to 10 rinse cycles.
Please leave to dry completely for 24 hours.
Please note:
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Caution:
THIS APPLIANCE IS INTENDED FOR NORMAL DOMESTIC USE ONLY
Cleaning the Clear binTM
(i) It is normal for the filter in the ball to turn grey in colour. The filters may require more
frequent washing if vacuuming fine dust.
(ii) Do not use detergents to clean the filters.
(iii) Do not put the filters in the dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, oven,
microwave or near an open flame.
Looking for blockages
Caution:
(i) Switch ‘OFF’ and unplug machine before checking for blockages.
(ii) Please ensure machine is upright before removing hose or airway inspection parts.
(iii) Beware of sharp objects when clearing blockages.
(iv) Refit all parts of the machine securely before using.
Please note:
(i) Clearing blockages is not covered by your machine’s limited warranty. If any part
of your machine becomes blocked, it may overheat and then automatically shut off.
Unplug machine and leave to cool down. Clear blockage before restarting.
Clearing brushbar obstructions
Caution:
(i) Switch ‘OFF’ and unplug machine before clearing brushbar obstructions.
If your brushbar is obstructed, it may shut off. If this happens you will need to remove
brushbar as shown and clear any obstructing debris.
