Flat & Upright Parking Position
Please note that your vacuum cleaner can be conveniently placed in a space saving vertical
parking position or in a convenient flat parking position.
1. Place unit on its side. Slide floor nozzle into locking position with receptacle which rests on
top of unit.
2. While laying flat on 3 wheels, slide floor nozzle into locking position with receptacle which
rests on the rear side of the unit.
Full Dust Bag Indicator
The red dust indicator may turn on while you are cleaning to indicate that the paper bag is full and
requires replacement. Note: Full Dust Bag Indicator only functions at maximum suction power from
variable control. You can test the Full Dust Bag Indicator by placing your hand over the end of the
Curved Hose/Wand Extension when vacuum is on – Indicator Should Turn Red.
Note: Regarding Cloth Dust Bag (Reusable)
If you are using the washable cloth bag, it should be emptied for reuse. Please note however
that the cloth bag will require periodic washing, especially while vacuuming fine dust particles that
can block suction. To wash cloth bag, first remove plastic bag collar attachment by removing all
four (4) screws. (Be careful not to lose any parts.) We suggest washing by hand in warm water
with laundry detergent until clean. Do not dry in electric dryer, cloth should be laid out or left
hanging to dry and then reassembled.
Please note your vacuum cleaner includes both a Paper Bag and a Cloth Bag. The cloth bag offers
convenience for reusability, however, please note that paper bags will offer the best cleaning
performance and clean air results. Select the one most suitable to your needs.
Replace Dust Filters
Pre-Motor Filter
Your vacuum cleaner is equipped with a filtration system to reduce dust and pollen in your home as you
clean. The white pre-motor filter is located inside the vacuum body behind the dust bag. Check when
changing the dust bag and replace when dirty.
To replace, lift vacuum body cover, then pull the white polyfoam straight up and out of the vacuum body,
dispense of old filter. Hold new filter with narrow round side down and slide into position between the
two posts and the motor intake.
Post-Motor Filter
Remove rear filter by grasping edge, squeezing and pulling towards you. The top of the cover
will become loose and you can remove it by pulling at a slight angle.
Remove filter and dispose of filter.
Insert new filter, making certain to position it over entire air vent area.
Replace rear filter cover by placing the four tabs into the four slots at the bottom of the filter
opening. Push top of cover until it snaps into place.
