For maximum airflow efficiency, we recommend you empty and clean your filter every few uses. To do so, simply unlock the Filter Panel at the Hose Base by rotating the Panel Latch counter-clockwise and then remove the Panel. Slide out the Filter and empty it of any accumulated hair.
Then be sure to check the filter for residual build up which may occur with extensive use of oil-based hair products. While out of the device, try filling it with water. If water doesn’t drain quickly, clean the filter – both inside and out.
Scrub with a toothbrush and dish soap or run the Filter through a wash cycle in the top rack of your dishwasher.
Let the Filter completely dry before replacing back in your base
Reconnect Filter Panel and lock into place by turning the latch clockwise.
*Note that the filter notch must line up with the intended groove to fit in properly. Without the filter properly secured, the device will not power on.
