replacing the product from the base.
RECHARGING (FIG. C)
The charger supplied with this product is intended to be plugged in such that it is correctly
orientated in a vertical or floor mount position.
From new, the rechargeable cells of the product need a minimum charge time of 16 hours
to ensure full power. While charging the charge indicator light will be illuminated. The switch
must be in the off ("O") position. The product will not charge if it is in any other position.
While charging, the product may get warm, this is perfectly normal and safe. It can remain
on charge indefinitely without damage or danger. It is not possible to "overcharge" the
battery cells with the charger provided.
Before recharging unit, make sure extension nozzle (from figure J) is retracted back in to

CLEANING THE PRODUCT (FIGS . E-I)
Never use the Dustbuster without its filters.
NOTE: The filters are re-usable, do not confuse them with disposable dust bags, and do
not throw them away when the product is emptied. We recommend that you replace the
filters every 6-9 months depending on frequency of use. See "ACCESSORIES" for filter
FIG. E - Remove the dust bowl by pressing the dust bowl release button and pulling the
bowl down and out. To replace the bowl, place it back onto the handle and click firmly into
position. Important: For best vacuum results, empty bowl after every use.
FIG. F - Empty the debris from the bowl and wash if necessary (see Fig. H).
NOTE: CHV9608 uses a single filter. CHV1408, CHV1568 and CHV1688 use an inner
and outer filter.
FIG. G - To remove the filter(s) twist the outer (plastic) filter in a clockwise direction. Shake
or lightly brush any loose dust off the outer filter.
FIG. G1 - CHV1408, CHV1568 and CHV1688 only. Remove the inner filter and shake, tap
or lightly brush outside surface to remove loose dust. Both filters can be rinsed as shown in
fig. (H). CAUTION: Filter must be dry before re-assembling. Ensure both filters are in
place before operating.
FIG. G2 - If your unit is equipped with a filter cleaning slider as shown in Fig. G2 you can
achieve more use between filter cleanings by first switching off the vac, and then sliding the
cleaning wheel up and down as shown. Make two full cycles for best results.
FIG. H - Wash the filters using warm, soapy water and ensure that they are completely dry
before using it again. The cleaner the filters are, the better the product will perform. It is
very important that the filter is correctly in position before use. The dust bowl can also be
washed in warm soapy water. CAUTION: Filters must be dry before re-assembling.
IMPORTANT: Maximum dust collection will only be obtained with clean filters and an empty
dust bowl. If dust begins to fall back out of the product after it is switched off, this indicates
that the bowl is full and requires emptying.
FIG. I - Never immerse the product in water. A damp cloth and soapy water should be
used to clean the exterior of the motor section. Always ensure the product is completely
dry before re-use or storing.
• Your product is very economical to charge. While it is charging it uses less electricity than
a typical night light bulb.
• When fully charged and with a clean filter, the average effective usage times vary by
7.2 volts: 7 - 9 minutes
9.6-12 volts: 9-11 minutes
14.0 volts and higher: 12-15 minutes
If the product does not work, check the following:
• That the charge indicator light is on when unit is in base.
• The charger was correctly plugged in for recharge. ( It feels slightly warm to the touch.)
• The charger cord is not damaged and is correctly attached to the base.
• The charger is plugged into a working electrical outlet.
• That the switch is in the "OFF" position when charging.

the extension piece until it locks into position.
The extension can be retracted by depressing the arrow button at the back of the extension
and pushing the extension back into the nozzle. Additional accessories are stored on the
product (FIG. K) and are fitted into the nose of the product for use. NOTE: CVHV9608
