rotating agitator and other moving parts. Do not operate cleaner in bare feet or
when wearing open toe shoes or sandals.
• Do not pick up anything that is burning or smoking, such as cigarettes, matches,
or hot ashes.
• Do not use to pick up flammable or combustible materials such as gasoline or fine
wood sandings or use in areas where they may be present.
• Avoid picking up hard, sharp objects with the cleaner. They may damage the
cleaner and the bag.
• Always turn off this appliance before connecting or disconnecting hose.
• Do not use without dust bag or filters in place. Change bag frequently when

away from heated surfaces.
• Always disconnect cord from electrical outlet before servicing the cleaner.
• Unplug cleaner when not in use. Turn off all controls before unplugging.

3. Maintenance
*Available at additional cost if not
included with your cleaner.
Where to buy
Familiarize yourself with these home
maintenance tasks as proper use
and care of your cleaner will ensure
continued cleaning effectiveness.
Filter bags may be purchased from
your Authorized Hoover Dealer,
Leading Retailers, Hoover Factory
Service Centers, or through The
Hoover Company on-line at
www.hoover.com.
Filter bag
What to buy
Check filter bag from time to time. It
is recommended that you change
the filter bag before debris reaches
the bottom of the bag collar. If more
dirt than this accumulates, your
cleaner will not operate effectively.
Note: All new carpet has loose
fibers which can fill the bag quickly while vacuuming. This type of
debris does not activate the “Check
Bag” indicator, available on some
models.
So, if you are using the cleaner on
new carpet, be sure to change the
filter bag often, even if you have a
“Check Bag” indicator and it does
not show red.
CAUTION: Very fine materials,
such as face powder or cornstarch, may seal the filter bag and
may cause it to burst even though
it is only partially full of dirt.
When cleaner is used to remove
material of this nature, change filter bag often.

excellent pick up and suction.
Remove debris as follows:
1. Disconnect cleaner from electrical outlet.

Thermal protector
Service
An internal thermal protector has been
designed into your cleaner to protect
it from overheating.
When the thermal protector activates, the cleaner will stop running.
If this happens, proceed as follows:
1. Turn the cleaner OFF and disconnect it from the electrical outlet.
2. Check secondary and final filters
for dirt accumulation.
3. Refer to “Clearing blockages”
section.
4. When cleaner is unplugged and
the motor cools for 30 minutes, the
thermal protector automatically resets
and cleaning may continue.
If the thermal protector continues to
activate after following the above
steps, your cleaner may need servicing (see “Service” section).
To obtain approved HOOVER service
and genuine HOOVER parts, locate
the nearest Hoover Factory Service
Center or Authorized Hoover
Warranty Service Dealer (Depot)
