aintenance and care

mance and extend the life of your

vacuum, it is very important that you

empty your dirt container and check

and clean your filters frequently.

Empty the dirt container when the dirt

reaches the “full” line on the dirt con-

tainer, or more frequently, to prevent

overfills. For best performance, empty

after each use.

2. Check the foam motor filter and the

HEPA media filter* at least once a

month; clean or replace as needed.

3. The HEPA media filter* should be

replaced if machine performance is

noticeably declining. More or less fre-

quent replacing may be required based

on individual vacuuming habits and

types of debris picked up.
