remove the Filter Debris Screen
from the HEPA Dust Cup Filter, then
vigorously “TapClean” HEPA Filter until
no more dust can be removed.
IMPORTANT, Please Note : The
“TapClean” HEPA Dust Cup Filter &
Debris Screen will stop most of the tiniest
dust particles and airborne allergens from
re-entering the air you breathe. In fact it
stops 99.97% of all particles as small as
0.3 microns - many times smaller than a
human hair!!! 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 open the Dust Cup (container),
push button and detach the Dust
Cup (container ). (Fig. 1)
2. Pull out the HEPA Dust Cup Filter.
