(marking) is reached during use (see the “Cleaning the Device and Accessories” chapter).
If there is liquid in the collecting container, do not overfill it and do not turn the
device over with the top pointing downwards so that no water can get into the rectangular
ventilation opening in the insert, and thus to the motor. If this is done the motor will become
damaged and the warranty will be void.
Switch the device off after each surface has been cleaned as this will considerably increase
the operating time on each battery charge.
Do not use the device when it is connected to the charger.
1. Depending on whether you wish to use the device as a hand-held or as a vacuum cleaner for your
floor, insert the handle rod or detach it.
2. Place one of the nozzles into the suction opening. However, you can also use the cordless vacuum
cleaner without a nozzle.
3. Press the On / Off switch to switch on the device.
4. Guide the nozzle over the surface to be cleaned. Check during use whether the maximum fill level
(marking) on the collecting container has been reached. If this is the case, it needs to be emptied.
5. To switch off the cordless vacuum cleaner, press the On/ Off switch.
6. Empty the collecting container after use and clean its insert and the filter on a regular basis (see
the “Cleaning the Device and Accessories” chapter). Also charge up the battery (see the “Charging
Up the Battery” chapter).
