A 2-Part Bolt B Lower Cord Hook C Bag Screws Step 1 Attach the Handle Push lower handle into handle socket on the base. Note: Check to be sure slot in handle is positioned correctly, see Detail A. 1 Align the holes on the lower handle and the socket. Insert a 2part bolt (A) in the bottom center of the handle and tighten. 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. Detail A 1 5 Step 2 Attach Lower Cord Hook 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. 2 3 Step 3 Attach Outer Bag Important: To provide a good gasket seal, the bag coupling must seat firmly against the motor base. 2 Hold outer bag with zipper away from the handle. Line up screw holes. Start the bag screws by hand, then tighten with a screwdriver. Loop the bag spring onto the bag support hook located at the back of the upper handle section. 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. 6 3 4 4 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 a comfortable height for the user, and (3) cleaning underneath low furniture. 3.Clean Underneath Handle Lock Power Switch ON/OFF The power switch is mounted on the handle. Push ON (-) or OFF (O). 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. 7 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. TOP 1. Pull zipper down. THROAT 2. Roll down coil spring. 3. Pull bag throat off sleeve. GENUINE Look for the EUREKA PRODUCT symbol. Ask for GENUINE EUREKA dust bags–Style F & G. BOT 4. Unfold new bag. TOM 5. Place bag throat on sleeve. 6. Roll up coil spring. 7. Place paper bag into outer bag. NOTE: Be certain there are no folds at the top or bottom of the 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. 2 Motor Pulley 1 1 2. Pull up on belt to rotate it off the motor pulley. Lift up on brush roll and remove worn belt. 1. Release cam locks. Belt Guide 5 6 Check for brush wear (see Brush Roll instructions on page 10). 3. Place new belt around brush roll. 4. Align brush roll pulley with belt guide. 7 Metal Brush Roll only. Place rubber end cap covers (available on select models) over both end caps (flat side against end cap). Align holes and secure. 5. Slant brush roll forward so end caps are in line with slots in cleaner base. 6. Push brush roll into base. 9 9 7. Place lower side of belt into belt guide and pull to stretch the belt around the left side of motor pulley. Rotate pulley to secure belt into groove. Ask for GENUINE EUREKA replacement belts, No. 52100 GENUINE Look for the EUREKA PRODUCT symbol. 8 8 8. Place slots of bottom plate over tabs of cleaner base. 9. Seat and secure cam locks. 9 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 brush strips. 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. G F A B C D E Note: Shaft washer (D) not included in ball bearing brush roll assembly. A. Remove rubber end cap cover (available on select models) from one end. B. Unscrew locknut. C. Remove end cap. D. Remove shaft washer (not included in ball bearing brush roll). E. Remove bearing retainer. F. Push shaft through opposite end. G. Pull out worn brush strip with pliers. E G. Slide in new brush strip of same length (rounded end first). Fit track on either side into brush roll slot. Replace second brush strip from opposite end of brush roll. F. Replace shaft. E.

Tighten locknut. A. Align holes and secure rubber end cap cover flat side against end cap. When properly assembled, the brush roll should rotate freely between the two end caps. Check the condition of the belt; change if necessary. Replace the brush roll, belt, and bottom plate (see How To Replace A Worn Belt). Ask for GENUINE EUREKA replacement brush strip. 12 inch No. 52282. 10 Quick Kleen® Fan Chamber (On some models) NOTE: 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. Order fan chamber cover replacement kit (fan cover, gasket, two screws) Part No. 52334. 11 Headlight Bulb (Standard on most models) NOTE: Turn off the switch and unplug the electrical cord before replacing headlight bulb. Headlight style varies by model. Locate the notches that 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. Replace the lens tabs into the top or the bottom of the hood opening. Rotate lens to position and press down at each notch until the lens locks into position. NOTE: Use 25 watt replacement bulb, only. Ask for GENUINE EUREKA replacement bulb, 40009A. 1 2 3 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. Part No. 71970 (1/02) ©2002 White Consolidated Industries, Inc. Printed in U.S.A.
