To reduce the risk of electric shock, this appliance has a polarized plug (one blade
is wider than the other). This 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.
Afin de réduire le risque de choc électrique, cet appareil est muni d’une fiche
polarisée (une des lames est plus large). Cette fiche ne peut être insérée dans une
prise polarisée que d’une seule façon. Si la fiche ne peut être insérée dans la prise,
retourner la fiche. Si la fiche ne peut toujours pas être insérée dans la prise, faire
installer une prise adéquate par un électricien qualifié. Ne pas modifier la fiche.
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.

HOW TO USE
The upright vacuum cleaner is designed to be used on multiple types of carpeting. Do
not attempt to use the upright vacuum cleaner on bare floors, as damage to the
floor covering may result. Above the floor cleaning tools are available (optional).
1. Store
2. Use
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) operating the cleaner at

cleaning underneath low furniture.
3.Clean
Underneath
Handle Lock
ON/OFF
Power Switch
The power switch is mounted on the motor
hood. A push with the foot turns the motor
ON; push again to turn the motor OFF.
Cord Storage
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.
Cleaner Height Setting
WARNING: Avoid injury. Keep loose clothing, hair, fingers, and all other parts
of body away from any moving part (such as the revolving brush).
Turn off the switch and unplug the cleaner before changing the
cleaner height setting.
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 cord
disconnected from outlet. For
ease in moving the adjustment
knob, place handle in operating
position and tilt cleaner back to
remove weight from front wheels.

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.
How To Change Disposable Dust Bag–Style F & G
NOTE: Turn off the switch and unplug the electrical cord before changing
dust bag. Never operate the vacuum cleaner without the dust bag.

NOTE: Be certain there are no

paper bag.
8. Lift zipper.
Micron Filter® Bag Care (Micron Filter Bag is 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.
8
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.
How To Replace A Worn Belt
NOTE: Turn off the switch and unplug the electrical cord before replacing
belt. Belt pulleys can become hot during normal use. To prevent burns,
avoid touching the belt pulley when servicing the drive belt.
IMPORTANT: Improper installation of the brush roll or brush roll belt could
cause carpet or cleaner damage.

Brush Roll
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).
How To Replace Worn Brush Strips
(chromed steel brush roll)
NOTE: Turn off the switch and unplug the electrical cord before replacing

New brush strips are supplied in sets of two, one long and one short. To replace,
remove bottom plate and belt (see How To Change Belt). Then, grasp center of brush
roll and lift to remove.

Cleaner Care
NOTE: Turn off the switch and unplug the electrical cord before cleaning unit.
To keep the vacuum cleaner looking new, it can be wiped with a damp cloth and a mild
soap solution, then thoroughly dried. Never use any type of chemical as chemicals
can damage the cleaner. When not in use, the cleaner should be stored in a clean, dry
place.
