GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance must be grounded. If it should malfunction or breakdown,
grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric current to
reduce the risk of electric shock. This appliance is equipped with a cord
having an equipment-grounding conductor and grounding plug. The plug
must be inserted into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and
grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
WARNING: Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor
can result in a risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified electrician or
service person if you are in doubt as to whether the outlet is properly
grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the appliance - if it will
not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
This appliance is for use on a nominal 120-volt circuit, and has a
grounding attachment plug that looks like the plug illustrated at right.
Make sure that the appliance is connected to an outlet having the same
configuration as the plug. No adaptor should be used with this appliance.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Important: In order to ensure that
maximum air suction is maintained,
empty the dust cup frequently and tap
clean the HEPA filter, filter ring and
debris screen at the same time. Ensure
that the rotating brush is kept free of hair
and string which may accumulate and
decrease brush performance.
Using The Unit With Air Driven
Turbo Brush
The efficiency of your air driven turbo
brush depends on the bristle brush
rotating at high speed. Strong air suction
is needed to accomplish this. In order to
ensure that maximum air suction is
maintained, please read the following
instructions:
1. Empty the dust cup frequently.
2. Always vigorously “TapClean” the
HEPA filter, filter ring and the debris
screen when emptying the dust cup
container.
3. Ensure that the rotating brush is kept
free of hair and string which may
accumulate and decrease brush
performance.
4. Keep air driven turbo brush turbine
free of dirt and foreign matter. (See
illustration for cleaning instructions.)

Turbine
From time to time, the turbine of your
turbo brush will require cleaning. To do
this:
1. Remove the turbo brush from the hose
or telescopic extension tube.
2. Slide locking latch forward then tilt the
top housing of the brush upwards. The
top housing is hinged and will tilt up
approximately 45° only.
3. There may be some dust, lint, hair, etc
on the turbine wheel. Remove as much
of this as possible.
4. You may also use the unit’s hose with
crevice tool attached and use the
vacuum to remove any additional
debris from the turbine.
5. Ensure that the turbine wheel moves
freely by rotating it with your finger. If
the turbine does not rotate, call
Customer Service for help.
6. Once clean, close the top cover of the
turbo brush and slide the locking latch
toward the rear of the brush to lock.
Attaching the Air Driven Turbo
Brush to the Flexible Hose
To use the air driven turbo brush to
clean upholstery:
1. Remove the flexible hose from the
hose connector. (Fig. 9)
2. Push the air driven turbo brush onto
the end of the flexible hose as far as
it will go.

without the HEPA filter and filter ring in
place.
1. To remove the dust cup container,
press down on the dust cup release
and pull the dust cup container out
from the vacuum. (Fig. 10)
IMPORTANT, Please Note : The
“TapClean” HEPA Filter will stop most of
the tiniest dust particles 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 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.
1. To remove the filter assembly from
the dust cup, hold the dust cup
container in one hand and with the
other hand, turn counter clockwise
and pull out the filter assembly.
(Fig. 12)
