Maintaining your machine
Checking for blockages
Follow our step-by-step guide to check for blockages.
The floor tool shown may vary from the product selected but the process remains the same.
Clearing the brush bar
We demonstrate how to access the brush bar so it can be cleared of tangles.
Don't overfill it
Keep one eye on the bin and empty it as soon as debris reaches the MAX marker to maintain suction.
Wash the filter regularly
Rinse under a cold tap until the water runs clear – you don't need any detergents. Leave to dry fully (at least 24 hours) before refitting.
Safely store tools
Clip accessories onto the vacuum's tool holster so you've always got them to hand.
