Once you turn on your Sonicare DiamondClean handle, you can pause the brushing after 5 seconds of use. Before the 5 seconds of use the handle will simply switch modes. To pause the brushing after 5 seconds of use, press the on/off button. To resume brushing, simply press the on/off button again and the handle will continue and finish the routine.
Please note that if the handle is paused for more than 30 seconds, the lights on the handle will fade off and the handle routine will reset.
