the infrared rays can not reach the receiver in the following
circumstances.

control panel is inside and the cleaner body is outside the room.
¡When you use the cleaner in a room with very high roof.
¡When the cleaner is subjected to strong lighting (especially inverter
type lighting, infrared rays lamp) or sunshine.
If you can not change the operation on the control panel handset at particular place, try changing
the angle.
When you cannot transmit infrared rays to the cleaner, use the on/off switch on cleaner body.
The infrared lenses on the handset and body should be kept clean.
In following situations:
Your vacuum cleaner may be affected by infrared remote control handsets for TVs and videos,
