cleaning rollers sit snugly.
ATTENTION
In the case of heavy contamination or if parts such as
stones or splinters get into the suction head, it will need
to be cleaned. While the appliance is working, these
parts will cause a rattling noise or will block up the suc-
tion ducts, diminishing suction performance.
