    Hey Bob, I think you'll need to download and upload the picture for it to show. Seems to be linked to an account that requires an id and password to view.

    Last time my wife asked me to vacuum, I couldn't figure the darn machine out either, yet she makes it look so easy when she does it.......and she can't figure out how to take a fish off a hook.

    So she does the vacuuming and I take the fish of the hook......seems to be working. So Mote It Be!

    foot switch or a switch on the handle, also there is a place that you can change from smooth floor or carpet.. then push pull the thing around to make the patter show up and she will bake you a cake

    My decades of bachelorhood are showing . . . I find this hilarious . In your defense, home vacuum designers do seem to go over the top when deciding where to locate the controls. Like Larry said, some are a foot switch, some on the handle, some in from of the handle, some only turn on once the handle has been leaned back into he operator position and yes, there is electricity involved.

    I guess they didn't delete the thread fast enough, we're all on a roll now .
