Going ok now

I have investigated the information you have provided and it sounds like you have a query relating to a vacuum that is prompting for the filter to be cleaned. I would suggest you will need to start by cleaning the filter as this can cause the vacuum to have a poor suction to collect the waste into the waste unit. I would suggest you refer to the steps I have attached below to assist you in clearing the attached filter;

  1. Unscrew the vacuum cleaner to expose the filter.
  2. Remove the filter from the vacuum.
  3. Dip the filter in water that has a mild detergent, then wash it until it is clean.
  4. Rinse it properly.
  5. Leave the filter to dry completely.

I hope the information provided today helps and if you have any questions or require any further assistance, please let me know and I will do my best to answer those!
