How To Use
The upright vacuum cleaner is designed to be used on
multiple types of carpeting. Do not attempt to use the
upright vacuum cleaner on bare floors, as damage to the
floor covering may result. Above the floor cleaning tools are
available (optional).
Cord Storage
1. Store
2. Use
3. Clean
Underneath
Handle Lock
Handle Adjustment
With the tip of the foot, press down to release the handle lock
located at the left rear side of the cleaner. Move the handle
and adjust it to the desired position for (1) storing upright, (2)
operating the cleaner at a comfortable height for the user,
and (3) cleaning underneath low furniture.
ON/OFF
The cleaner has two convenient cord storage hooks attached
to the handle. However, some models feature a quick release
cord hook on the upper handle. A downward twist of the cord
hook frees the cord for quick removal. With either style, wind
the cord around the hooks for storage. Fasten the plug to the
cord to prevent unwinding.
Cleaner Height Setting
WARNING: Avoid injury. Keep loose clothing, hair, fingers,
and all other parts of body away from any
moving part (such as the revolving brush).
Turn off the switch and unplug the cleaner
before changing the cleaner height setting.
The front of the cleaner has an adjustment that raises or
lowers the cleaner base to match the type of carpet. With
the cleaner cord unplugged, set the adjustment to lowest
setting for maximum cleaning. If the cleaner is difficult to
push, move adjustment to next highest setting until cleaner
is comfortable to push. The brush roll must reach the carpet
for effective cleaning.
Make each adjustment with cleaner switch off and
cord disconnected from outlet. For ease in moving the
adjustment knob, place handle in operating position and tilt
cleaner back to remove weight from front wheels.
HOW TO MAINTAIN
The instructions given in this booklet serve as a guide to
routine maintenance. To avoid unnecessary service calls,
check the bag, belt and brush roll often.
Disposable Dust Bags
Power Switch
The power switch is mounted on the motor hood. A push
with the foot turns the motor ON; push again to turn the
motor OFF.
4
Paper bags play a very important role in the efficiency of a
vacuum cleaner. The purpose of a paper bag is to trap dirt.
But at the same time the bag must be porous enough to allow
air to pass through. If the paper bag becomes clogged, no
air can pass through the cleaner and no cleaning can take
place, regardless of how powerful the unit is. Change the dust
bag frequently. Some fine particles can restrict airflow very
quickly and will decrease performance even before the bag
appears to be full. For that reason, when vacuuming carpet
fresheners or cleaners, powder, plaster dust, or similar fine
substances, the bag may need to be changed more often.
How To Change Disposable Dust Bag–Style F
& G, PN 54924A
CAUTION: Turn off the switch and unplug the electrical
cord before changing dust bag. Never operate
the vacuum cleaner without the dust bag.
Brush Roll Belt
The brush roll belt on the upright vacuum cleaner drives the
brush to agitate, sweep, and comb the carpet nap. The belt
should be checked regularly to be sure it is in good condition.
Replace the belt if it is stretching, cracking, or slipping. Cut
away any hair or thread wound around the brush roll or the
belt pulley because the buildup could cause the belt to rotate

Cleaner Care
CAUTION: Turn off the switch and unplug the electrical
cord before cleaning unit.
To keep the vacuum cleaner looking new, it can be wiped with
a damp cloth and a mild soap solution, then thoroughly dried.
Never use any type of chemical as chemicals can damage
the cleaner. When not in use, the cleaner should be stored
in a clean, dry place.
2. Pull up on belt to rotate it off the motor pulley. Lift

Place rubber end cap covers over both end caps (flat
side against end cap). Align holes and secure. Then,
slant brush roll forward so end caps are in line with
slots in cleaner base.
Push brush roll into base.
Brush Roll
The rotating brush roll sweeps and combs the carpet nap.
Keep the brush roll free from hair and threads so it will continue brushing. When the bristles of the brush roll no longer
touch a straight edge held against the bottom plate, the
brush roll is ineffective because the bristles no longer touch
the carpet nap. To maintain the most effective cleaning, the
brush roll should be replaced.

CAUTION: Turn off the switch and unplug the electrical
cord before replacing headlight bulb.
Headlight style varies by model. Locate the notches that
release the tabs at either (1) top, (2) side, or (3) bottom of
the lens, as illustrated. Place a screwdriver into one notch;
twist or pry the screwdriver to release the lens. Repeat for
the second notch on the opposite side.
