  • Do not leave vacuum cleaner when it is plugged in. Unplug from outlet when not in use and before servicing.
  • Do not use outdoors or on wet surfaces.

  • Do not use to pick up toxic material (chlorine bleach, ammonia, drain cleaner, etc.).
  • Do not pick up anything that is burning or smoking, such as cigarettes, matches, or hot ashes

Assembly

The only tool you will need to assemble your vacuum is a Phillips-head screwdriver.

  1. Place the Upper Handle onto the base and push it down. Then attach the handle with the 2 screws taped to the handle in a plastic bag.
  2. Insert the Lower Cord Wrap and turn it to the right to lock in place.
  3. Insert the Stretch Hose end into the back of the vacuum and twist right to lock in place.
  4. Wrap hose up and around the hose wrap on the handle. Slide end of hose into vacuum base.
  5. Now, put your accessory tools on the vacuum and you’re ready to go!

NOTE: Pet Hair Corner Tool does not store on board.

WARNING
To reduce the risk of injury from moving parts while the vacuum is turned on, always move the vacuum via the rolling wheels by using the upper handle at the back of the vacuum. Do not carry the vacuum while it is running. Always place vacuum on floor with handle in upright position when using tools.

  1. Press the red power button with your foot to turn the vacuum ON and once again to turn your vacuum OFF.
  2. Press the Recline Pedal and pull handle back towards you.
  3. Turn the dial on the foot of the vacuum to the desired setting. If the dial is difficult to turn, tilt the vacuum back slightly to take the weight off the foot while turning.
    Lowest setting – For low pile carpet or bare floors. To pick up debris, it may be necessary to move up one setting.
    Medium setting – For medium pile carpet.
    Highest setting – For high pile and most shag carpet.

TIP: For optimal carpet cleaning performance, adjust to the lowest practical setting. If your vacuum is difficult to push, adjust to the next higher setting.

NOTE: Rotating floor brush continues to rotate while tools are in use. Never place fingers under the vacuum when it is running. Never place Powerfoot on furniture or uneven surfaces. Do not place vacuum close enough to objects to pull into rotating brush.

NOTE: Certain carpets and low humidity conditions may generate small static discharges. Static discharges are harmless and are not associated in any way with the main power supply.

  3. Hold the Dirt Tank over a trash container. Press the bottom release button to empty. Once empty, close the lid.

Maintain the TurboEraser® Tool

  1. Twist gray collar counter-clockwise, until slot appears, then separate faceplate.
  2. Remove Brush Roll, Belt, and Paddle Wheel. Inspect for damages and replace if necessary
  3. To reassemble, align two clips on each end of Paddle Wheel with Belt on and pop back into place. Place Brush Roll with belt back in. Faceplate will not close properly if all parts are not aligned correctly.

WARNING
To reduce the risk of electric shock, turn power switch OFF and disconnect plug from electrical outlet before performing maintenance or troubleshooting checks.

  1. Unplug vacuum, turn over and unscrew six (6) Philips-head screws to remove the bottom cover. Lift brush straight out.
  2. Clean debris from Brush Roll. Inspect by placing on its end and spin. The Brush Roll should spin freely, multiple times by one flick. If it doesn’t, replace Brush Roll. Check belt for wear or cuts and replace if necessary.
  3. Replace the Brush Roll and Belt by looping the Belt over the motor shaft and the Brush Roll. Line up the end caps and pull the brush forward into place. This will stretch the belt. Return bottom cover back on and replace the screws.

Clearing a Clog

  1. Remove the Stretch Hose from the back of the vacuum by twisting it to the left. Remove any debris that may have gotten clogged.
  2. Check the Foot Hose on the back of your vacuum down towards the bottom. If necessary, remove the screw from the Foot Hose and check for clogs.
