problem. (i.e. clogged hose or
filter)
• If clogged hose or filter is found,
unclog the hose and replace the

3. Rotate the lower dust cup clockwise
to separate it from the filter
chamber. Empty and clean the dust
cup. (Fig. 8)
IMPORTANT, Please Note : The
“TapClean” HEPA dust cup filter & debris
screen will stop most of the tiniest dust
particles and airborne allergens from reentering the air you breathe. Because of
this incredible filtration performance, the
HEPA dust cup filter will quickly
accumulate, inside the white filter folds,
many fine dust particles that are difficult
to see but which will eventually block or
reduce your suction power - if not
cleaned properly. Clean the HEPA filter
and debris screen after each use as
described in this section.
1. To remove the dust cup (container),
hold the unit in the upright position to
prevent the dust from falling out of the
dust cup. (Fig. 6)
7. “TapClean” the debris
screen or rinse under
a faucet until clean.
(Fig. 12) Remember
that the debris screen
must be completely
dry before reinstalling
in the vacuum.
