Wipe the machine

The following areas should be checked and cleaned to maintain the machine's performance.

Loop amplifier - clean with a dry or damp cloth.

Main body - clean with a dry cloth

Shroud - clean with a dry cloth or soft brush

WARNING: Do not use polish or detergent on any part of the machine.

Has this resolved the problem?

Machine is working normally

This is completely normal.

The machine will run very slowly when in idle mode to keep air flowing over the thermostat so it can constantly regulate the temperature of the air.

This is a characteristic of the product and cannot be resolved with an exchange or return to base repair.

There is no safety concern.

If the noise is intrusive, switching the machine off at the wall will stop the noise, or altering the position of the product in the room might make the noise less audible.

Is there anything else we can help you with?

We're glad the problem's been solved.

Please let us know if there's anything else we can help you with.

Ensure correct button on remote is being pressed to adjust the airflow.

Paper test

The fan has a strong, smooth airflow when switched on. The airflow should be strong enough to lift a sheet of newspaper past 45 degrees.

The following areas should be checked and cleaned to maintain the machine's performance.
