NOTE: If the nozzle is on a surface that has
dirt on it, dirt will be picked up by the vacuum
and the red lights might stay on.
When the Power-Mate" is being moved back

Mate ®is moved back and forth over an area,
the sensor is not seeing enough dirt to war-
rant further cleaning of that area.
NOTE: Dirt sensor lights DO NOT function in
the FLOOR setting.
