Grounding Instructions
This machine must be grounded. If it should malfunction or break down,
grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce
the risk of electric shock. This machine 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 machine - if it will not
fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
This machine is for use on a nominal 120-volt circuit, and has a grounded
plug that looks like the plug illustrated in figure A. A temporary adapter
that looks like the adapter illustrated in figures B and C may be used to
connect this plug to a 2-pole receptacle as shown in figure B if a properly
grounded outlet is not available. The temporary adapter should be used only
until a properly grounded outlet (figure A) can be installed by a qualified
electrician. The green colored rigid ear, lug, or the like extending from
the adapter must be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly
grounded outlet box cover. Whenever the adapter is used, it must be held
in place by a metal screw.
NOTE: In Canada, the use of a temporary adapter is not permitted by the
Canadian Electrical Code
EXTENSION CORDS
Use only three-wire 16/3 or larger gauge approved extension cords that have
three-prong grounding type plugs and three-pole receptacles that accept the
appliance’s plug. Replace or repair any damaged cords or plugs.
NOTE: Do not use adapters shown in figures B & C in Canada
When servicing, refer to authorized person only. Use only identical
replacement parts.

so can result in personal injury and/or damage to
machine and property!
OPERATION AS AN UPRIGHT VACUUM
1. Properly install the filter bag in the vacuum: Depress
the two white buttons on the back of the vacuum housing
door (Drawing 1, Item 8), then swing it up and open. Place
the bag into the opening with the notched portion next to
the handle tube.

2. Plug the machine’s power cable into a properly
grounded outlet (see Safety Instructions).
WARNING! NEVER USE THIS MACHINE
TO PICK UP VOLATILE OR EXPLOSIVE
MATERIALS.
WARNING! DO NOT PICK UP WET
MATERIAL WITH THIS MACHINE.
3. Adjust the brush height to suit the thickness of the
carpet. The adjustment ranges from positions 1 through 4:
Position 1 for very low pile carpet and Position 4 for very
high pile carpet. Adjust the height adjustment knob (Drawing 2, Item 39) to the lowest number position that results in
the green light being on and the red light off (reference the
“Electronic Power Brush Monitor” section).
The model shown in this manual is intended for commercial
use and for vacuuming dry material only.
4. Depress the foot pedal to lower the handle to the
operating position.
ASSEMBLY
5. Turn ON the switch-the vacuum and brush motors will
start. Begin your DRY pick up vacuuming.
To prepare the machine for operation, make sure it is of
correct voltage and properly assembled. If in doubt, ask
your supervisor.
OPERATION with ACCESSORIES
1. Place the brush head on a flat surface and latch the
swivel neck into the upright and locked position.
1. Properly install the filter bag in the vacuum.
2. Plug the machine’s power cable into a properly grounded outlet.
2.
Turn the knob (Drawing 1, Item 57) located on tank
assembly counterclockwise to the right. Insert the tank
assembly over the projection ears on the lower unit while
keeping the tank in the vertical position. Return the knob
to the locked position by turning it clockwise.
3. Remove the rigid portion of the flexible hose from the
lower portion of the vacuum. The brush motor will automatically stop when the hose is removed.
3. Attach the flexible hose to the vacuum tank. The long
rigid portion of the flexible hose should be inserted into the
lower portion of the vacuum tank assembly.
4. Attach the crevice or dusting tool to the wand, turn the
vacuum ON and begin.
5. Upon completion, reinsert the rigid portion of the hose

MAINTENANCE
VACUUM INLET FILTER
ALWAYS turn the machine power switch OFF
and unplug the machine before performing any
service. Severe personal injury could result if
electrical power is not disconnected.
This machine has a vacuum inlet filter (Drawing 1, Item 69)
that will require periodic cleaning or replacement. The filter
is located below the paper bag cage in the housing.
To clean: Remove the filter and shake or vacuum it. If the
filter is worn or uncleanable, replace.
AFTER EACH USE:
1.
2.
3.
Inspect the vacuum filter bag. If the bag is full or
damaged install a new one.
HEPA FILTER
The HEPA filter (Drawing 1, Item 49) will also require
periodic cleaning or replacement.
Check the cord and plug for nicks, cuts or damage.
Report these to your supervisor for correction. Wrap
the electrical cord on the hook provided.
To clean: Unlatch the cover (Drawing 1, Item 50) to access
the HEPA filter, remove the filter and shake or vacuum it.
If the filter is worn or uncleanable, replace.
Store the vacuum in a clean dry area.
BRUSH STRIP REPLACEMENT
FULL BAG INDICATOR
This machine has a removable brush strip. Replace it if it
becomes worn to the point where it no longer contacts the
carpet. To replace: First remove the three (3) screws that
hold the access plate on the bottom of the brush housing.
Once the brush roller is exposed, remove the R.H. Support.
The brush strip can now slide off - remove and replace
with a new one. Be sure the strip is pushed all the way in.
Reassemble.
Your machine is equipped with a device that senses when
airflow inside the vacuum chamber is restricted. The red
light located next to the on/off switch will come on when
this condition exists. Restricted airflow can be caused by
the following conditions:
A.
If vacuum filter bag is full; install a new bag.
B. If the bag is not full, there is an obstruction in the
system. Remove the vacuum hose and hold it up to the light;
clean out any debris. Next, check the inlet to the power
brush housing and clear it of any debris.
VACUUM MOTOR MAINTENANCE
Have the vacuum motor inspected annually by a Factory
Authorized Service Technician. If the carbon brushes are
worn, they should be replaced. This service will prolong
the life of the vacuum motor.
ELECTRONIC POWER BRUSH MONITOR
The machine is equipped with a control system that alerts
the operator via indicator lights if a problem ooccurs within
the power brush housing. The lighting conditions and what
they mean are:
The replacement of belts and other repairs to the machine
should be performed by a Factory Authorized Service
Technician.
A. Green Light Illuminated & Red Light Off - The brush
assembly is working properly.
B. Both Red & Green Lights Illuminated - Lower the
brush, the drive belt may be broken, or change the brush
strip.
C. Red Light Illuminated & Green Light Off - The brush
roller is obstructed and cannot rotate. Turn the power switch
off and unplug the machine. Remove any string, debris or
other obstruction so that the brush turns freely.
