When using an electrical appliance, basic precautions should always be followed, including the following :
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury :
• Do not use outdoors or on wet surfaces.
• Do not leave vacuum cleaner when plugged in. Turn off
the switch and unplug the electrical cord when not in use
and before servicing.
• Do not allow to be used as a toy. Close attention is
necessary when used by or near children.
• Use only as described in this manual. Use only
manufacturer’s recommended attachments.
• Do not use with damaged cord or plug. If vacuum cleaner
is not working as it should, has been dropped, damaged,
left outdoors, or dropped into water, return it to a service
center before using.
• Do not pull or carry by cord, use cord as a handle, close
door on cord, or pull cord around sharp edges or corners.
Do not run vacuum cleaner over cord. Keep cord away
from heated surfaces.
• Hold plug when rewinding onto cord reel. Do not allow plug
to whip when rewinding.
• Do not use extension cords or outlets with inadequate
current carrying capacity.
• Turn off all controls before unplugging.
• Do not unplug by pulling on cord. To unplug, grasp the
plug, not the cord.
• The hose contains electrical wires. Do not use when damaged,
cut, or punctured. Avoid picking up sharp objects.
• Always turn off this appliance before connecting or
disconnecting either hose or motorize nozzle.
• Do not handle plug or vacuum cleaner with wet hands or
operate without shoes.
• Do not put any object into openings. Do not use with any
opening blocked; keep free of dust, lint, hair, and anything
that may reduce airflow.
• This vacuum cleaner creates suction and contains a
revolving brush roll. Keep hair, loose clothing, fingers, and
all parts of body away from openings and moving parts.
• Do not pick up anything that is burning or smoking, such
as cigarettes, matches, or hot ashes.
• Do not use without dust bag or filter in place.
• Belt pulleys can become hot during normal use. To prevent
burns, avoid touching the belt pulley when servicing the
drive belt.
• Use extra care when cleaning on stairs.
• Do not use to pick up flammable or combustible liquids such
as gasoline, or use in areas where they may be present.
• Store your cleaner indoors in a cool, dry area.
• Keep your work area well lighted.
• Unplug electrical appliances before vacuuming them.
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 into 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.
DO NOT OIL the motor or the brush roll. The
motor and brush roll are permanently sealed
and lubricated.
Use the cleaner to pick up dirt and dust particles. Avoid
picking up hard or sharp objects that could damage the
vacuum cleaner.

Automatic Motor Shut-Off
To protect from overheating, this vacuum cleaner is
equipped with a thermostat which automatically shuts off
the motor if it overheats. Should this happen:
1. Turn off the switch and unplug the cleaner because
the thermostat will allow the cleaner to automatically
start running again when the motor cools (approximately
30 minutes).
2. Check the hose, bag and filter regularly, as a clogged
hose, full bag or dirty filter could cause the motor to
3. Call a Eureka Service Station if the cleaner will not operate after cooling for approximately 30 minutes.

A carpet should be cleaned regularly over heavily traveled
areas, and once a week over the entire carpeted area.
Vacuum slowly, making several passes (forward and backward) over the carpet, covering small areas at a time. The
time required to clean the carpet will depend on several
factors–including type of carpet and amount of dirt.

HOW TO USE (continued)
Bag Change Indicator
Vacuum Control
The bag change indicator bar fills as the airflow through the
bag decreases. Certain types of fine particles like powder,
plaster dust, or carpet fibers can restrict airflow very quickly
and will decrease performance even before the bag appears
to be full. When the warning appears, change the disposable
dust bag to restore maximum performance. If a clean dust
bag does not restore maximum performance, clean the filters
and check the hose and wands for obstructions.
Remote ON/OFF Selector for bare floor or carpet
ON – push down on front
*Off – push down on back for bare floors.
Cleaning suction is reduced by pushing lever to
LOW position. Place lever at HIGH position to
increase suction for carpet cleaning.
*Power ON/OFF for canister can only be controlled by canister
ON/OFF switch.

- Style CN2 and FILTER - Style EF3
NOTE: Turn off the power switch and disconnect
electrical cord from wall socket before
changing dust bag. Never use the cleaner
without a dust bag or filters.
To remove used dust bag and check filters:
1. Unplug the hose from the bag compartment lid.
2. Squeeze bag compartment latch and swing lid up.
3. Lift exhaust filter out of bag compartment. If dirty, clean
or replace. The filter can be cleaned by brushing over a
waste receptacle. Place filter back in bag compartment.
4. Grasp bag collar and lift used bag out of cleaner and throw
5. Pull down on motor filter grille to release the motor filter.
If dirty, clean or replace. The filter can be cleaned by
brushing over a waste receptacle. Replace filter in grille,
rotate grille up and push against cleaner to latch.
Bare Floor Brush: (on some models) For any type
of hard surface floor.
The paper bag and filters play a very important role in the
efficiency of the vacuum cleaner. The purpose of the paper
bag is to trap dirt and at the same time the paper must be
porous enough to allow air to pass through. If the paper bag
or filters become clogged, no air can pass through the cleaner
and no cleaning takes place regardless of how powerful the
unit. To keep the cleaner operating at maximum efficiency,
change the dust bag frequently and clean the filters as
Some fine particles can restrict airflow very quickly and will
decrease performance even before the bag appears to be
full. When vacuuming carpet fresheners or cleaners, plaster
dust, or similar fine substances, clean the bag and filters
more often.
To install disposable dust bag:
1. Hold dust bag by collar and push dust bag into bag
2. Rotate bag compartment lid down and press against
cleaner until it latches.
Brush Roll
The brush roll turns to sweep and comb the carpet nap. Keep
the brush roll free from hair and threads so it will continue
cleaning. When the bristles of the brush roll no longer touch
a piece of cardboard 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, install a
new brush roll.
Brush Roll Belt and Light Bulb
The brush roll belt on the motorized nozzle drives the brush
roll to agitate, sweep, and comb the carpet nap. The belt
should be checked regularly to be sure that it is in good
condition. Replace the belt if it is broken, stretching, cracking,
or slipping. Cut away any hair or thread wound around the
brush roll or belt pulley because the buildup could cause the
belt to rotate unevenly.
How to Replace Worn Belt or Light Bulb
(On Some Models)
NOTE: Turn off the switch and unplug the electrical cord
before replacing belt or bulb. Pulleys can become
hot during normal use. To prevent injury, avoid
touching the pulleys when servicing the drive
