Check the machine

To ensure the correct checks are carried out, we will need to determine if this is a pick up issue or if the machine is pulsating.

The machine is designed to pulsate. This is an audible feature that indicates a problem, as well as preventing damage to the motor. This is usually caused by a restriction in airflow or a blockage within the machine.

Please ensure the bin is empty before continuing with any checks.

Remove all tools and accessories from the machine e.g. Wand, Cleaner head, Crevice tool etc.

Check both ends of the Wand for blockages and remove as necessary.

Damp or musty smell

A damp or musty smell is caused when dust in the cyclone has come into contact with water.

It may not be a direct contact with water, for example when vacuuming pet hair that is slightly damp, this moisture will combine with the dust in the cyclone causing the smell.

Additionally the smell may occur if the filter goes back into the machine wet.

Only the filter can be washed, the bin can be cleaned with a damp cloth only, and both must be completely dry before being refitted to the machine.

Has any part of the machine been washed?

Were all the washed parts completely dry before the machine was used?

Under normal use, any unpleasant smell can only be caused by something the machine has picked up. Please select pick up issues to carry out checks.

If you are able to locate the smell to a part of the machine, replacing the part may help eliminate the smell. For this, please select Part broken.

Washing the filters

To remove the pre-filter, lift it out of the top of the machine.

To unlock the post-filter, rotate it anti-clockwise until the two solid black dots line up.

With cold water only, run water over the outside of the filters until the water runs clear.

Turn the filter upside down and shake to remove any excess debris.

Squeeze and twist the pre-filter with both hands to make sure the excess water is removed, then tap and shake the post-filter to expel all debris.

Leave the filter to dry with the open end facing up for as long as possible.

Ensure the filter is completely touch dry prior to refitting.

WARNING: Do not put the filter in a dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, oven, microwave, or near a naked flame.

Rotate the post-filter clockwise until it locks in place and the solid black dot lines up with the empty circle.
