Looking after your batteries

    Looking after your batteries

    If you've chosen to buy an additional click-in battery,¹ we recommend fully charging it soon after purchase, and alternating and charging all click-in batteries regularly to prolong battery health. The ambient temperature range for operation and charging should be 10°C (50°F) to 30°C (86°F).

Maintaining your machine

It's important to maintain your machine to keep it working at its best. From washing the filter to emptying the bin, you can find tips and advice below.

Brush bars, clear bin and worktop tool on a draining board while filter is being washed under running water.
  • Washing the filter

    We recommend washing your filter once a month for your vacuum to perform at its best. Your filter should be washed by hand, not in a dishwasher. Watch how to do it quickly and easily.

  • Close up looking down the vacuum wand.

    Checking for blockages

    The most common reason for reduced suction power is debris blocking the airflow. If this occurs, remove the wand, bin and cleaner head and clear any blockages you find.

  • Emptying the bin

    To maintain suction, it's important to empty the bin before dust or debris reaches the MAX line. Watch how to do it.

  • The brush bars being removed from the cleaner head.

    Detangling the brush bars

    Clearing wrapped hair and fibres relieves unnecessary strain on your machine's motor. This can be done easily by removing the brush bars from the cleaner head.

  • Brush bars on a draining board next to a tap.

    Washing the brush bars

    Removing fine dust maintains the effectiveness of your brush bars. Detach them from the cleaner head, and using cold tap water only, gently rub them until the water runs clear. Make sure they're completely dry before reusing.
