qualified electrician to install the proper outlet. Do not change the plug in any way.
GENERAL INFORMATION
The cleaner is designed to pick up dirt and dust particles. Avoid picking up hard or sharp objects with the cleaner to prevent
bag tears, hose clogs, and fan blade breakage with subsequent motor damage.

1. Adjust cleaner height setting knob to lowest position for
maximum cleaning. Adjust to a higher setting to make
pushing easier. For easy adjustments, tilt the cleaner back
to move the setting knob.

roll is lifted off carpet. This is normal. Height
adjustment will not change brush roll level

5. Wait at least 30 minutes before attempting to reuse the
cleaner.

Remove hair and threads from the brush roll so it continues
brushing the carpet. To maintain the most efficient cleaning, the
bristles must touch the carpet. To test the bristle length, hold a
ruler against the underneath side of the cleaner. If the bristles
no longer touch the ruler, replace the brush roll.

comb the carpet nap. Check the belt regularly to be sure it is in
good condition. Replace the belt if it stretches, cracks or loses
tension. Cut away any hair or threads wound around the brush
roll or the belt pulley because the buildup could cause the belt
to rotate unevenly.

HOW TO MAINTAIN (Continued)
Disposable Dust Bag and Filters
To Remove Bag:
The disposable dust bag plays a very important role in
the efficiency of a vacuum cleaner. The purpose of the
paper bag is to trap dirt. As the bag traps dirt, it must also
be porous enough to allow air to pass on through. If the
paper bag becomes clogged, no air can pass through the
cleaner and no cleaning can take place regardless of how
powerful the unit. Change the dust bag and check the
filters frequently. Some fine particles can restrict airflow
very quickly and will decrease performance even before
the bag appears to be full.
When vacuuming carpet fresheners or cleaners, powder,
plaster dust, or similar fine substances, the bag and filters
may require more frequent maintenance.
How To Replace Bags–Style AA Filteraire
NOTE: Turn off the switch and unplug the
electrical cord before changing dust
bag. Never operate the vacuum cleaner
without the dust bag or the filter.
NOTE: Style AA Filteraire bags must be used
to maintain HEPA grade filtration and
prolong the life of the HEPA filter. Also
use AA Filteraire bags to maintain Micron
grade filtration and prolong the life of the
Micron filter.
NOTE: Models without HEPA or Micron filter
option, may use Style AA bags rather
than Style AA Filteraire.
It may be more convenient to lower the handle to the floor
before changing the bag.
* We recommend using only Genuine Eureka Filteraire
Bags, part number 58623.

How to Check and Clear Hose Blockages
Low suction or poor pickup may be due to a blockage in the vacuum cleaner.

1. Remove hose and check suction at end of hose - if little or no suction, check disposable
dust bag. Change if needed. If no improvement proceed to step 2.
NOTE: Turn off the switch and unplug the electrical cord before clearing hose.

the vacuum cleaner before reattaching the handle.
