Using the Vacuum

Looking for more guidance? Go to support.BISSELL.com for tips and 24-7 support while cleaning.

ICONpet® Turbo can be used as a stick vacuum, hand vacuum or for extended reach with hand vacuum + wand.

  1.  Press the power button to begin cleaning and to turn OFF the machine when finished.
  2.  Press the cleaning mode button to toggle between the three settings.
    •  High For cleaning carpet and area rugs. This mode balances power and provides a run time of up to 18 minutes. This is the default mode when the vacuum is turned ON.
    • Turbo For maximum suction. This mode is active for 5 minutes and then will default back to high power mode.
    •  Low For hard floors. Offers the quietest sound with longest run time of up to 50 minutes.
      Note: If your vacuum is difficult to push on carpet or is shutting off abruptly, try reducing the power setting.BISSELL-Series-3178-Iconpet-Turbo-Cordless-Vacuum-Cleaner-FIG-8

Note: All batteries differ when it comes to run time and power production. The cleaning mode you choose and the surfaces you vacuum (long, thick carpet uses more power than short, low pile carpet) affect run time and power produced. To better preserve run time and overall battery life, use the power mode best suited to your cleaning task and only use TURBO mode when you need an additional boost of suction power.
