If you have purchased a sweeper, in order to take care of your floors in a home or professional environment, it will be very useful for you to know some pointers on its proper operation and periodic maintenance jobs, which are essential for troubleshooting and to keep efficiency at its highest level.


As with any machinery, before using a sweeper, it is always a good idea to read the instruction manuals and comply with all safety regulations. For example, do not use the equipment while under the influence of medication, drugs or alcohol. Sweepers, whether for home or professional use, are not designed to be operated by children or persons whose physical, sensory or mental abilities are impaired.



Carrying out regular maintenance is the best investment in extending the life of your sweeper, keeping its efficiency high and avoiding any damage that is costly to repair.


Let’s see, first of all, when, how often and how a sweeper should be maintained. 

After each use, the waste collection tank must be emptied. The batteries should also be recharged so that the machine is always ready and at full power for next use.

The following steps should be taken every week: 

  • Removing and cleaning the filter
  • Checking the wear and tear of traction components
  • General cleaning of the brushes 

The following jobs, however, should be performed every month

  • Checking and cleaning the pivoting wheels
  • Checking the suction hoses and ducts for clogging and obstruction

As we have already mentioned, periodically carrying out proper maintenance of the sweeper keeps its efficiency high and prevents any damage that is costly to repair. It may, however, happen that unforeseen incidents arise due to, in addition to carelessness, simple wear and tear, technical problems or malfunctions that can be solved with simple procedures independently, while others lead us to turn to authorized service centers.

In case of technical problems or malfunctions, here is what to do.

If the sweeper does not start, make sure the key is inserted correctly and in the start position. If the battery connector is disconnected or badly connected, connect the two connectors properly. If the machine is flat, charge the batteries and wait until the charge is completed.

If the sweeper does not move forward, the direction switch lever may have been left in the neutral position: just engage the gear.

Or, the floor inclination may be too steep and will require manual pushing.

 If the brushes do not turn, it may be sufficient to press the appropriate motor switch once more. If they overheat, on the other hand, the brush motor’s thermal protection might trigger: check, then, why and press the reset circuit breaker.
Worse, on the other hand, could be if the drive belt breaks, possibly to be replaced; similarly, motor relays or motor itself should be replaced if irreparably faulty.

 If the sweeper sucks poorly or does not suck, the suction hose may be clogged and will need to be cleared of any obstruction.
If, on the other hand, the suction motor is not receiving power or has burned out, the connections should be checked and the entire motor replaced if necessary.


If the battery charger does not work, it may not be properly connected to the power outlet or to the battery.
If, on the other hand, the batteries do not charge or hold a charge, they may be defective: check the battery manufacturer’s use and maintenance manual and, if the problem persists, replace the damaged charger or batteries.

 You now have all the information and guidance you need to use your sweeper properly and perform periodic maintenance so that you always get the best results and high standards of cleanliness, thus extending the life and efficiency of your machine.
