aintenance and care
Low suction or poor pickup may be
due to a clog in the vacuum cleaner. If
you notice a change in the sound of the
motor, check for clogs.
1. Unplug the vacuum from electrical outlet.
2. Empty dirt container.
3. Check upper tank for build up or clogs.
4. If you notice a clog in the upper tank,
remove the separator plate (see section
"Cleaning the Upper Tank" on page 16).
5. Grasp the curved wand and separate it
from the hose wand base. Check for a
clog in the base, the wand or in the hose.
notE: on select units that have the
clean filter indicator, when the indi-
cator reads black, there is a clog in
the hose which is diminishing suction
power. Remove the clog in the hose
to restore full suction power.
6. Remove the Twist ‘n Snap hose from the
vacuum by turning to the right. Straighten the
hose and unclog with a long, narrow object
such as a broom handle.
7. If you notice debris or dirt clogged in the
connecting tube, remove it by pulling it out at
the top and lifting the tube out. Clean the tube
of any debris and clear any possible clog
from the port to the pre-motor filter. Reattach
tube by first installing the base and than push
in the top of the tube.
8. If the clog persists, follow the instructions
for checking the rotating floor brush and
drive belt on page 12 and inspect the air
passageway for obstructions.
