If the machine does not have any power, please check the status light and select which light is showing.

We need a little more information to help us solve your issue.

Machine making pulsating noise

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.

Check the machine

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

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

Press and hold the trigger for 10 seconds.

Does the issue occur without the tools?

Clear the floor tool

On the side of the Cleaner head, locate the end cap. Using a coin, turn the end cap anticlockwise a quarter of the way to remove it.

Note: There should be a small padlock icon along with directional arrows to help you unlock the end cap.

Image showing how to unlock the mini brush bar.

Remove the Brush bar from the Cleaner head and clear away any hair or fibres.

Check the neck of the Cleaner head (where the Cleaner head connects to the Wand) for any blockages. Ensure there is no build up of dust or debris in the small crevice between where the Brush bar sits and the neck of the Cleaner head.

With the Brush bar clear from any debris, refit it back into the Cleaner head and securely fasten the end cap.

Place the Cleaner head onto the bin and test the machine.

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?

Wash the filter

This indicates the filter needs washing. Please follow the steps in the video.

Washing the filters

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

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

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

Squeeze and twist the filter with both hands to make sure the excess water is removed.

Image showing how to wash the filter.

Lay the filter on its side to dry. Leave to dry completely for a minimum of 24 hours.

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

To refit the filter, place the dry filter back into the top of the machine. Ensure it is fitted properly.

Has this resolved the problem?

Damp or musty smell still present

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.
