Cleaning the filters
Your cleaner is equipped with a
self-cleaning HEPA filter.
This filter is NOT removable.
If you notice that the filter is rotating
slower than normal or not rotating, refer
to the Troubleshooting section. If you
feel that this filter needs replacement,
take your cleaner to an Authorized
Hoover Sales and Service Center.
Depress button (C) on back of dirt
cup to release door (D). Empty
dirt cup into trash receptacle. Close door
firmly to latch.
The dirt cup may also be emptied by
lifting off the lid and emptying into a
trash receptacle. Replace lid before
returning dirt cup to position.
While the cleaner is in operation,
the pre-filter screen (A) will stop
larger debris from entering the HEPA fil-
ter chamber. This larger debris will be
seen collecting in the larger chamber of
the dirt cup (B). The HEPA filter will col-
lect fine particles that have passed
through the pre-filter screen. The HEPA
filter cleans itself while rotating, deposit-
ing fine debris in the smaller chamber of
the dirt cup (C).
The cleaner will continue to perform at
maximum cleaning levels if the pre-filter
screen is cleaned each time the dirt cup
is emptied (see Fig. 34).
