How often should I empty the dust cup?
For optimal performance, the dust cup should be emptied each time you vacuum and when the dust cup appears full or debris reaches the “max fill” line.

How often should I wash the filters?
For optimal performance, clean filters on a regular basis. Between washings, your filter can be tapped clean to remove any excess dust and other particles.

Pre-Motor Foam & Felt Filters: Under normal usage, rinse and let air dry completely (for at least 24 hours) once a month.
Post-Motor Filter: Under normal usage, rinse and air dry once every 9 months or as needed.

How do I wash the filters?
The pre-motor filters are located on the top of the hand vacuum. Turn off the power and remove the battery. Place the rest of the vacuum on the floor. Pull out the filter assembly. Gently separate the cylindrical foam filter from the felt. Rinse both filters with water until the water runs clear. Do not use soap. Let air dry completely (at least 24 hours) before reinstalling. Slide the foam filter back onto the felt filter and reinstall.

The post-motor filter is located under the handle of the vacuum. Press the button to remove the cover and pull out this filter. Rinse with water until the water runs clear. Do not use soap. Let air dry completely (at least 24 hours) before reinstalling. Reinstall the filter under the handle and press the cover closed until it clicks into place.

How do I know when the filters need to be cleaned?
Check to see if the filters need to be cleaned if the vacuum is not picking up dirt, airflow is restricted, or if you notice lighter or no suction. You can tap loose dirt off filters between washes and wash them according to the regular cleaning schedule to maintain optimal performance. Refer to your Instruction Booklet for more information.

How do I remove/clean the soft roller?
First, turn off the power and remove battery. Then, remove the brushroll garage located on the top of the nozzle by sliding both “Access Brush Roll” buttons toward the back of the nozzle. Pull out the soft roller using the “Pull” tab located on the right side of the roller. Remove any debris from the soft roller housing. Wipe the soft roller with a dry paper towel. If desired, wash the roller with water only and let air dry completely before reinstalling (24 hours). Reinsert the soft roller by sliding it into the front of the nozzle, starting on the left side, until it clicks into place. Close the brushroll garage by inserting the tabs on the lid into the slots, then pressing down on both sides of the lid until it clicks into place.
