"Disappointing" star star_border star_border star_border star_border I now remember why i have a cordless vacuum! This is not easy to operate. The only way to stop the machine is to put the handle in an upright position. They should have an on and off button on the handle. In the end, I sent it back as I didn't find it easy to use.

To turn the machine into standby you need to press the mode button. We’ve been in touch to help further.
