Use without bag

We recommend you empty the dust receptacle and clean the permanent filter at least each season, depending on use of your central vacuum.

  1. To empty the dust receptacle: Disconnect the unit from the electric outlet. Unlatch the two clips, remove the receptacle, and empty into an appropriate container.
  2. To clean the permanent filter:
    • Do not remove the filter
    • Wrap the filter and the lower portion of the unit body within a large plastic bag. Hold it tightly around the unit with one hand
    • With your other hand, gently shake the filter
    • Wait a few seconds for the dust to settle before removing the plastic bag
  3. Replace the dust receptacle and seal with the two clips.
  4. Reconnect the unit to the electric outlet.
  • Should the filter become stained, or emit an unpleasant odor, it may be washed in cold water (without bleach).  Rinse and dry well before replacing.  Do not tumble dry.
