Attaching the Handle to the Vacuum

NOTE: Do not plug in the vacuum until it is completely assembled.

The vacuum cleaner and the handle are packed separately and require assembly.

• Remove the handle screw located on the back of the vacuum (Fig. 1). Insert the handle downward into the body of the vacuum (Fig. 2). Insert screw and tighten.

• Open the bag compartment cover to ensure a vacuum bag is in place.

• Your vacuum is now ready for use.

• When storing the vacuum, wrap the cord clockwise around the top and bottom cord hooks. Fasten the plug to the wrapped cord using the channel on the plug.

Unwinding the Power Cord

• The Quick Release Upper Cord Hook rotates to allow for quick access to the power cord. Turn the upper cord hook downward and you can quickly drop the power cord to the floor without unwinding it from the cord hooks (Fig. 3).

Dirt Sensing Display (S40P model only)

The Premium Synergy is equipped with two amber lights that illuminate the edges of the cleaning path when your vacuum detects that dirt is being picked up by the machine (while in the carpet cleaning mode). Continue vacuuming this area until the amber lights no longer illuminate.

When only the white headlights are illuminated, the Premium Synergy has removed all of the deeply embedded dirt from your carpet, and you should move on to a new area.

Cleaning Tools (continued)

Cleaning tools can also be attached to the curved handle for tasks where the wand is not needed.

• Disconnect the wand from the curved handle by pressing the Wand Release

Button (Fig. 1).

• Attach any of the cleaning tools directly to the curved handle.

Adjusting the Suction Power for

Tool Cleaning

Full suction power may be too strong for some cleaning situations. For example, reduced suction power would be appropriate for cleaning sheer curtains.

• On the curved handle, locate the Suction

Relief Valve and slide it backward (Fig. 2).

This reduces the suction power coming through the tool. Slide the valve forward when finished to restore full suction power.

Disconnecting the Hose

The hose can be disconnected from the vacuum by pressing the two buttons on the sides of the Hose Disconnect Cuff located low on the back of the vacuum (Fig. 3).

This allows you to attach an optional extension hose for longer reach and is also a method for removing debris from the hose.

Annual Checkup

To keep your vacuum in peak operating condition, it is recommended you bring your vacuum to an Authorized

Simplicity Vacuum Retailer for an annual checkup. The Retailer will conduct a comprehensive examination to ensure your vacuum is in top operating condition.

Power Cord Care

• If the cord or plug has any apparent damage, refrain from using the vacuum.

Please visit an Authorized Simplicity

Vacuum Retailer for a new cord or plug.

• When the vacuum is in use, hold the cord to keep from running over it.

• Avoid obstructions and do not pull the cord around sharp edges or corners.

• Always keep the cord away from heated surfaces and never close doors on it as this may cause damage to the wiring.

• To unplug, always grasp the plug, not the cord.

When to Change the Vacuum Bag

The Full Bag Indicator Light is designed to show when the bag is full or when there is a clog in the vacuum.

Filter

Full Bag

Yellow Warning Light Indicates a Full Bag Condition

The light could also come on when vacuuming fine powders such as flour or drywall dust. These materials can quickly block the bag pores, significantly reducing airflow before the bag is actually full. The vacuum bag should still be changed.

The light may also come on during attachment cleaning. If the light goes off when attachments are no longer in use, the vacuum bag does not need to be changed.

Note: The vacuum bags are disposable and intended to only be used once.

Do not attempt to reuse the bag, as suction and filtration performance will be greatly reduced.

MAIntenAnCe AnD CARe

Replacing the Vacuum Bag

NOTE: Unplug the vacuum cleaner from the electrical outlet before changing the bag.

• To access the vacuum bag lift the bag compartment latch.

• Remove the used vacuum bag by pulling the yellow bag collar tab away from the vacuum (Fig. 1). Slide the used bag out of the holder which automatically seals the bag

(Fig. 2). Discard the used bag.

• To install a new bag, slide the bottom of the yellow bag collar into the bag holder until it

“snaps” into place (Fig. 3).

• Push the top of the bag collar upward until the bag holder “snaps” into place on the vacuum (Fig. 4).

• Tuck the bag corners into the bag compartment before replacing the bag compartment cover.

When to Change the Filters

The filters on your Synergy vacuum should be replaced after 25 hours of operation. The

Synergy is equipped with a filter clock to monitor the actual hours of operation and will illuminate the change filter indicator light on the nozzle of your vacuum when 25 hours of operation have elapsed.

Note:

When the filters are replaced, reset the filter clock (while the vacuum is running) by removing the cap located above the direct air motor filter and pressing the reset button. The change filter indicator light will once again only illuminate after the next 25 hours of operation.

Jammed Brushroll

CAUTION! To Reduce the Risk of Injury From

Moving Parts, Unplug Before Servicing.

If an object, such as a throw rug or article of clothing is ever picked up into your vacuum, the vacuum will sense this jammed brushroll condition and turn off the brushroll. When this happens, the

Brushroll Jam Indicator on the top of the nozzle will light up in red.

• Turn off and unplug the vacuum.

• Remove the cause of the jam.

• Turn the vacuum back on.

• If the brushroll is free of obstructions and the Brushroll Jam Indicator is still lit, it’s likely the clogged condition is located in the vacuum motor fan. If so, please take your vacuum to an Authorized Simplicity

Vacuum Retailer for service.

Cleaning the Dirt Sensor Eye

(S40P model only)

If the amber lights run continuously, it may be the dirt sensor eye has become coated with moist dirt. To remedy this situation, simply vacuum up a small amount of uncooked rice which works to clean the eye. Repeat, if necessary. If the problem persists, contact your Authorized Retailer.

Thermal Motor Protection

CAUTION! To Reduce the Risk of Injury From

Moving Parts, Unplug Before Servicing.

Your vacuum is equipped with a safeguard to recognize when the vacuum might overheat and shuts itself off. When this happens the headlights are still on but the motors shut off. Common reasons why a vacuum may overheat include operating with a full bag or when there is a clog in the vacuum.

If the Thermal Motor Protection System shuts off your vacuum, follow these steps:

• Unplug the vacuum.

• Inspect the vacuum for a full bag condition or a hose clog and correct the problem.

• Locate the Thermal Motor Protection Reset

Button on the back of the vacuum. Press the button and resume vacuuming.

If problem continues, contact your

Authorized Simplicity Vacuum Retailer.
