outlet before attempting to service it
in any manner.
Do not operate without paper bag in
place.
The filter bag

recommended that you change the bag
when dirt reaches the bottom of the bag
collar. If more dirt than this accumulates,
your cleaner may not operate effectively.

Handle positions
Transporting cleaner
The handle of your cleaner has three
positions; upright for storage and when
using cleaning tools; operating for general operation on carpet and floors; low
for reaching under low furniture. Step on
handle release lever to lower handle.

frequently when using cleaner on new
carpet due to rapid accumulation of carpet fluff.

as face powder, cornstarch, fireplace
ashes or fireplace soot, 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.
What to buy
Filter bags may be purchased from a
Triple S Authorized Dealer.
Use only Type A disposable filter bags
in order to maintain the original cleaning
effectiveness of your cleaner.

Lubrication
The motor is equipped with bearings
that contain sufficient lubrication for
the life of the motor. The addition of
lubricant could cause damage.
Therefore, do not add lubricant to
motor bearings.
The agitator is equipped with two
ball bearings that should be lubricated periodically by a Triple S Authorized Dealer.
Service
To obtain approved Triple S service
and genuine Triple S parts, contact
a Triple S Authorized Dealer.
Always identify your cleaner by the
complete model number when
requesting information or ordering
parts. (The model number appears
on the bottom of the cleaner.)
Servicing of doubleinsulated appliances
This vacuum cleaner is double insulated. In a double insulated appliance, two
systems of insulation are provided
instead of grounding. No grounding
means is provided on a double-insulated appliance, nor should a means for
grounding be added. Servicing a double-insulated appliance requires
extreme care and knowledge of the system, and should be done only by qualified service personnel. Replacement
parts must be identical to those parts
being replaced. A double-insulated
appliance is marked with the words
“DOUBLE-INSULATION” or “DOUBLEINSULATED”.
The symbol
may also be marked on
the appliance.
