If you should detect a change of suction in your vacuum, you should first check to make sure your filters are clean. Start by opening the dust cup and locating the screen or mesh filter inside. Ensure that all dirt, debris and hair is removed from that screen. Next, remove the filters and knock all dirt and dust loose. You may want to do this outside. Now, replace your filters and close the dust cup. Test the vacuum's suction against your hand. If the filters are clean, but suction continues to fail, this may indicate that you have a clog between the wand and the floor brush. First, you'll want to remove and inspect the wand to make sure there are no obstructions. Next, check the floor nozzle to make sure there are no blockages in the airpath or that there is not excess hair or fibers around the brushroll. Lastly, check all dust cup intake openings to make sure they're clear. Once you remove any obstructions, you should be good as new to start cleaning again.
If the brushroll indicator light on the floor nozzle turns red, the brush roll has stopped spinning. Immediately turn off and unplug the vacuum, disconnect the nozzle and remove blockage before reconnecting and turning vacuum back on. If the brushroll indicator light is green, the blockage has been successfully cleared. If the light is still red, please contact customer service at 800.798.7398 for further assistance.
There are 2 easy ways to empty the dust cup. Make sure the unit is unplugged first. Then remove the dust cup by squeezing the 2 "Dust Cup Release" latches on both sides of the dust cup base and pulling it straight out. Place the rest of the vacuum on the floor. Hold the dust cup over the trash and press the bottom door release button on the front to empty. To reattach, insert the dust cup straight back into the hand vac. Or, separate the hand vac from the rest of the vacuum by pressing the wand release button. Next, hold the dust cup over the trash and press the bottom door release button on the front. Tap gently to empty contents or wipe clean with a soft cloth. Press the door shut again until it clicks. The dust cup should be emptied each time you vacuum and when the dust cup appears full, or for optimal performance, when it reaches the max fill line.
We recommend every month. To wash, simply remove the filter lid, remove the foam and felt filters underneath, wash both with tap water until the water runs clean, then air dry completely and replace back into your vacuum. You can also tap loose dirt off filters between washes as needed. It is important to note that your foam filters may appear dirty after first use " this is normal. These filters will discolor over time " this is also normal. Extra filters are available on SharkRocket.com if you want to purchase a "spare" set to keep on hand, but the good news is that these filters will last the lifetime of the vacuum.
