GENERAL INFORMATION
To reduce the risk of electric shock, this appliance
has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other).
The plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the
plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it
still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install
the proper outlet. Do not change the plug in any way.
The bag may have come dislodged in shipping. Check
the bag to insure proper seating before attempting to
use the cleaner. Do not operate the cleaner without a
dust bag. Damage may result to the motor.
The cleaner is designed to pick up dirt and dust particles.
Avoid picking up hard or sharp objects with the cleaner
to avoid bag breakage, or possible motor damage.

HOW TO ASSEMBLE
Step 2
Attach Lower Cord Hook
CAUTION: Completely assemble vacuum cleaner before
using.
Make sure cord hook is pointing downwards. Press the power
cord into the groove on the cord hook pulling any slack toward
the base of the cleaner. On the cord hook, find the curved
tab and place in slot on lower handle section, keep cord taut
while pressing the cord hook to the left until it snaps into slot
on opposite side of handle. The hook should point downward
on the same side that the cord exits the hood.

IMPORTANT: To provide a good gasket seal, the bag

Step 1
Attach the Handle
Hold outer bag with zipper away from the handle. Line up
screw holes. Start the bag screws by hand, then tighten with
a screwdriver.
Push lower handle into handle socket on the base.
NOTE: Check to be sure slot in handle is positioned
correctly, see Detail A.
Loop the bag spring onto the bag support hook located at the
back of the upper handle section.
Align the holes on the lower handle and the socket. Insert
a 2-part bolt (A) in the bottom center of the handle and
tighten.
Step 4
Store Electrical Cord
The cleaner has two convenient cord storage hooks attached
to the handle. However, some models feature a quick release
cord hook on the upper handle. A downward twist of the cord
hook frees the cord for quick removal. With either style, wind
the cord around the hooks for storage. Fasten the plug to the
cord to prevent unwinding.
Push upper handle onto lower handle. Make sure grip curves
away from cleaner. Align the holes on the upper handle
to the holes on the lower handle. Insert a 2-part bolt (A)
in center of the handle and tighten.

HOW TO USE
The upright vacuum cleaner is designed to be used on
multiple types of carpeting. Do not attempt to use the

Handle Adjustment
With the tip of the foot, press down to release the handle lock
located at the left rear side of the cleaner. Move the handle
and adjust it to the desired position for (1) storing upright, (2)

HOW TO MAINTAIN
The instructions given in this booklet serve as a guide to
routine maintenance. To avoid unnecessary service calls,
check the bag, belt and brush roll often.
Disposable Dust Bags
Paper bags play a very important role in the efficiency of a
vacuum cleaner. The purpose of a paper bag is to trap dirt.
But at the same time the paper bag must be porous enough to
allow air to pass 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 frequently. Some fine particles can restrict airflow very
quickly and will decrease performance even before the bag
appears to be full. For that reason, when vacuuming carpet
fresheners or cleaners, powder, plaster dust, or similar fine
substances, the bag may need to be changed more often.

The front of the cleaner has an adjustment that raises or
lowers the cleaner base to match the type of carpet. With
the cleaner cord unplugged, set the adjustment to lowest
setting for maximum cleaning. If the cleaner is difficult to
push, move adjustment to next highest setting until cleaner
is comfortable to push. The brush roll must reach the carpet
for effective cleaning.
Make each adjustment with cleaner switch off and

Micron Filter® Bag Care (Micron Filter Bag is
Belt
Guide
standard on some models)
Because the Micron Filter Bag is an effective filter medium,
occasionally trapped dust particles will need to be cleaned
from the inside of it. The dust accumulation can be vacuumed
out with another vacuum or the bag may be removed to shake
out. If you desire, the bag may be hand laundered. The zipper
on the bag should be down and the bag should remain right
side out. Use warm water (150°F 65°C) and a mild detergent.
Pre-soaking the bag in a laundry pre-soak is desirable for
best cleaning results. Air dry thoroughly before using.
DO NOT USE AN AUTOMATIC WASHER OR DRYER as
either will cause abrasion to the delicate polyester fabric. DO
NOT DRY CLEAN as dry cleaning fluids will damage plastic
parts of your bag assembly.

Brush Roll Belt
The brush roll belt on the upright vacuum cleaner drives the
brush to agitate, sweep, and comb the carpet nap. The belt
should be checked regularly to be sure it is in good condition.
Replace the belt if it is stretching, cracking, or slipping. Cut
away any hair or thread wound around the brush roll or the
belt pulley because the buildup could cause the belt to rotate
unevenly.

CAUTION: Turn off the switch and unplug the electrical

become hot during normal use. To prevent
burns, avoid touching the belt pulley when
servicing the drive belt.

Brush Roll
Quick Kleen® Fan Chamber
The rotating brush roll sweeps and combs the carpet nap. Keep the brush
roll free from hair and threads so it will continue brushing. When the bristles
of the brush roll no longer touch a straight edge held across the bottom
plate, the brush roll is ineffective because the bristles no longer touch the
carpet nap. To maintain the most effective cleaning, replace the wood
brush roll. Install new brush strips on the chromed steel brush roll (refer
to instructions).
(On some models)
CAUTION: Turn off the switch and unplug
the electrical cord before
cleaning.

The clear, removable fan chamber cover
provides easy inspection, cleaning, and
maintenance of the fan chamber. Removing
the cover provides easy access to the motor
fan. Grease buildup, dirt, or other obstructions,
visible through the fan cover, should be
removed. To clean the fan area, take off the
chrome bottom plate by releasing the two
cam locks (see Brush Roll Belt, Figure 1 and
2). Remove the belt from, the motor pulley,
then loosen and remove the screws on either
side of the fan cover, as indicated by the
arrows. Push the cam locks outward against
the wheels to lift the cover from the cleaner
base. Dirt and obstructions can easily be
cleared; however, caked grease may need to
be scraped from the cover and the cleaner.
If the fan does not turn freely, it also should
be removed for cleaning. To remove the fan,
place a wrench over the motor pulley. Hold the
fan blades with one hand and turn the wrench
counterclockwise. Remove the motor pulley
and lift the fan off the motor shaft. Clean the
area and replace the fan over the motor shaft.
Tighten the motor pulley snugly clockwise with
the wrench. If necessary, replace the fan cover
or the gasket with replacement parts.
Be sure the gasket is in place. Reposition the
fan cover by first placing the exhaust end into
place between the large rear wheels. Seat
fan cover firmly. Next replace the belt and
bottom plate as the pressure from the bottom
plate helps seal the fan cover. Start the two
screws by hand to be sure they are straight,
then tighten.

release the tabs at either (1) top, (2) side, or (3) bottom of
the lens, as illustrated. Place a screwdriver into one notch;
twist or pry the screwdriver to release the lens. Repeat for
the second notch on the opposite side.
Rotate the bulb socket forward. Push bulb in and turn
to remove. Secure new bulb into socket and rotate bulb
socket backward.
