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
a comfortable height for the user, and (3)

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 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 is.
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.

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.
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 injury, 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 against the bottom plate, the brush roll is ineffective
because the bristles no longer touch the carpet nap. To maintain the most effective
cleaning, the brush roll should be replaced.
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 notch until the lens locks into position.
NOTE: Use 25 watt replacement bulb, only.
