What does the nasal aspirator sound like?

OLAF the elephantastic nasal aspirator hums during its work, comparable to a shaving device.

My device cannot be switched-on. What now?

Our OLAF has a slashproof switch, similar to the one at a electrical toothbrush. Please press a bit harder onto the button to switch the OLAF on.

Last update on 25.01.2017 by Goldener ZIrkel GmbH.

When you turn the device on and off, you'll hear a clicking noise.

This doesn't mean that your device is defective. These sounds are completely normal and do not affect the suction capacity.

How to clean the OLAF? – Care tips

We designed our OLAF nasal aspirator so that if used properly it will serve you for many years. It’s the perfect combination of quality, functionality and design. To keep your device in perfect condition, please note the following points regarding cleaning:
You do NOT need to clean the device before using it for the first time.
After use, you can simply rinse all the parts under running water, and if necessary wipe the case with a soft, damp cloth. Parts that have been in contact with mucous – the silicon attachment, the cap, the cap attachment – can be sterilised in boiling water or a steam steriliser.
Avoid using aggressive cleaning products such as petroleum or other chemical solvents.
OLAF parts should not be put into the dishwasher, for reasons of hygiene and so that small parts don't get lost.
All damage arising from incorrect use of the product is excluded from the guarantee. For example if parts of the device, such as the battery cover, are cleaned in boiling water. This can cause the plastic parts to warp and the device can no longer be assembled. In such cases, customers must purchase the replacement part from our online shop.

After cleaning, the OLAF suddenly does not create vacuum anymore.

  1. Nasensauger DichtungsringPlease take care that the yellow-green washer does not get lost during cleaning. It is important, as without it, the can cannot be closed correctly and no vacuum can be created. A spare ring is included in the plastic bag in your packaging. Please also check that the ring is flattened and placed even, not turned, otherwise no vacuum can be created.  

  2. Reinigung der KappeSometimes it happens that the small tube inside the transparent cap is blocked with dried nasal discharge. In this case, please take a needle and clean the tube with it.

Die Saugkraft lässt nach…

Please check that the batteries are full. The suction power has measureable 50 kPa on full suction and battery power.

Devices that are sent back to us, will be checked. If the full 50 kPa suction power will be reached during the test and no other lacks are evident, we will return the OLAF to you.

The most common cause for a weak suction power is the battery leve.
