The suction regulator (C) is located on one of the metal wands.
The cleaning tools have many uses. Select the tool best suited for the cleaning task from the descriptions below.
Open the suction regulator for less suction when cleaning lightweight fabrics or throw rugs. Close the suction regulator (as shown) for maximum suction. If power nozzle is difficult to push on some carpet, open the suction regulator. This will prevent damage to the belt.
