Hi,
I have charged battery and cleaned all filters etc but the rotary brush head will not rotate on my model. It is not due to the length of carpet-it doesn't workk on the tiles either!
Please help.
Thanks

Mine does that too, how long have you had it? Perhaps contact Kmart and ask them whether it comes with a warranty?

Hello. You would need what ever it says in the instruction booklet, or ring Anko to find out.

Yes you can, Just press the battery release button on the bottom, and the battery will slide out.The charger still plugs into the side of the battery when it's been removed.
I bought a spare battery so I can keep using the unit if the first battery dies.
I got the spare battery from here---

I’m not too sure where, but do you have a portable jumpstart for your car? I’ve tried the charger to that and it works!

Simply plug the charger into the cleaner head and switch on, when the red light turns green turn off and unplug.

How long does the battery last before replacement? And the filters too? I am not from australia but thinking of purchasing one from an online store.

Being lithium-Ion, the battery pack should last years. They are very reliable and designed for long life (even if the battery pack is not in use it should keep an almost full charg for months). The filter is washable in water, and all components are VERY easy to access. One aspect I am very impressed with.
To quote from below:
"I have just contacted Kmart and if its under warranty its all replaced free of charge. If the warranty period has ended then you contact 1800 079 124 and order a replacement as per the instruction booklet. It is not Kmart itself but the supplier and I was told there will be a postage charge plus the cost of a new battery (battery being $24 and new filter being $10).

Hoped that helped.

@mirrabucca yesss this helps a lot, thank you very much!!

I agree with all the previous comments, I expect the battery to last years and when a replacement is needed the cost is quite reasonable.

Is the head small enough to fit into corners without having to change to the crevice tool?

2 answers
Jac M

It does do the corners of the room relatively well without changing the head. But it’s really easy to change and you’ll get a better clean if you change it. It’s very convenient. I have a corded Dyson and barely use it anymore.

Larry

Hello Kate, the head measures 23cm x8cm, I have never had to remove the head when I am vacuuming my house, I have just finished using it, I did the whole house before the battery expired, I also have a Nilfisk corded machine which I have not used since I bought this.

The box says 5 hours charging time but I’ve had it go flat an popped it on charger done other chores an got it out again after half hour an it had enough charge to finish what I needed done. It is recommended to pop on the charger when not in use an there is a wall bracket with it to. Hope this helps

Agree with Kate. But worth noting, despite modern technology, ALL batteries develop a "memory" and will ultimately only recharge to the point last discharged. So always discharge fully before recharging fully and your battery will last "indefinitely" (yeah, right)

Larry
Larry

Moritzia, you are confusing Cadmium batteries with Lithium ion, Cadmium need to be fully discharged or they will develop a memory, Lithium ion are like lead acid and suffer if they are deeply discharged.
