Changing the Filter Bag - Figure 16

To change the filter bag (45), set the canister upright (as shown in figure 13),
press the cover release catch (25) and lower the filter bag cover (26). Grasp
the green filter bag sealing plate (46), slide the plate from the holder (48) and
push the filter bag cap (47) on to seal the bag. Slide the sealing plate (46) of
a new bag into the bag holder slots (48) and push it in firmly until it locks into
place. Close the cover, making sure it snaps shut completely. You may find it
convenient to store the bag cap inside the filter bag housing below the filter
bag. Do not re-use the filter bags. Note: the nature of the contents of the fil-
ter bag will affect the point at which it needs changing. Fine dust may require
an earlier change even though the bag is not full. Fluff or hair allows air to
pass through easily, so the filter bag may overfill before the amber “bag full”
light illuminates.

The “bag full or clog” light works correctly only at full power. At lower power
levels, the “bag full or clog” light may illuminate incorrectly. Check the status
of the filter bag regularly at full power.

Changing the Exhaust Filter - Figure 17

The exhaust filter (51) needs to be changed when it becomes extremely dirty
or clogged with dust, or after approximately 10 to 20 filter bags have been
used. To change the exhaust filter, set the canister flat on the floor as shown
in figure 17. Remove the printed cover on top of the machine (14) by lifting the
catch (49) in the upholstery nozzle recess (see inset, figure 17). Pull out the
filter using the handle (50) and fit the new filter into the same position. The
filter handle should point toward the upholstery nozzle when it is folded
down. Fit the tabs on the bottom of the cover (14) into the grooves and snap
the cover down firmly.

Changing the AIRBELT - Figure 19

If damage occurs to the AIRBELT cover, it will need to be replaced. To remove
the AIRBELT (15), pry off the clip (55) by inserting the tip of a slot-head screw-
driver under the bottom side of the clip. Push downward on the screwdriver
until the clip pops off. Grasp the end of the AIRBELT cover and pull - the AIR-
BELT cover will peel off. The foam bumper (54) remains on the vacuum. To
replace the AIRBELT, insert the side ribs of the AIRBELT into the grooves (56).
Start at the back, insert rib into one groove (56), and while holding it down,
stretch the AIRBELT cover around the foam (54) into the opposite groove (56).
Continue around the vacuum. Secure the ends with the clip (55).

SEBO AIRBELT covers are available in a variety of colors and patterns. See
your SEBO dealer for available selection.

Changing the Micro-Hygiene Filter - Figures 16 &18

After 10 to 20 bags have been used, change the micro-hygiene filter (52). To
remove the micro-hygiene filter, set the canister upright (as shown in figure
16). Press the cover release catch (25) and lower the filter bag cover (26).
Remove the filter bag, then remove the cover by sliding it up and out of the
grooves (53). Pull the old filter out (52) and slide the new filter into the same
position. Replace the filter bag, then re-insert the cover by fitting the tabs
into the grooves (53) on both sides and sliding it in and down. Push the cover
closed, making sure it snaps shut completely.


Note: Never operate the vacuum with incorrectly attached filters or without filters, bag,
AIRBELT or filter bag housing cover (26). Do not re-use filter bags. Do not wash and re-use filters.
