How To Use
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS (FIG. B)
Fix the charging base within reach of an electrical outlet, as illustrated, using the screws and plugs
supplied. Plug in and place the product in position. The charging base can also be fixed, or simply
placed, in a convenient horizontal position.
NOTE: Avoid damaging the cord while fixing the base to the wall or when removing or replacing the
product from the base.
RECHARGING (FIG. C)
From new, the rechargable cells of the product need a minimum charge time of 16 hours to ensure full
power. We suggest you fully discharge the product when it is used for the first time as this will help the
cells recharge faster. 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.
OPERATION (FIG. D)
This product is for dry pick-up only.
To start, slide the On/Off switch forward (i.e. "O"= Off, "I" = On). To stop, slide the switch back.
9.6 volt units: To start, slide the power switch forward to on (1) position for longest run time. Slide
switch to second position (2) for extra power when cleaning larger messes and debris.
Always return the product to the charging base immediately after use so that it will be ready and fully
charged for the next use. Ensure that the product is fully engaged on the charging base.
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.
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
Empty the dust from the bowl and wash if necessary (see Fig. H).
To remove the filter twist it in a clockwise direction. Shake or lightly brush any loose
dust off the filter.
Wash the filter regularly using warm, soapy water and ensure that it is 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. Ensure that it is dry before re-attaching.
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.
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 than half the amount of
electricity used by a light bulb.
When fully charged, the average effective usage times are between 8-10 minutes.
