Vacuuming
Dry Materials
1.The
filter must always
be in correct
position to reduce the risk of leaks and
possible damage to vac. Make sure that
the filter is completely covering the filter
cage and that the retainer band is as
close to the lid as possible. Make sure
there are no gaps between the filter and
the lid. (See illustration).
It is very
important
to assemble
the filter to the
cage without
allowing
any possible
leaks or tears. Any leaks will allow
the picked
up media to be blown out
of the blower
port and back into the
surrounding
environment.
2. When using your vac to pick up very fine
dust, it will be necessary
for you to
empty
the dust
drum
and
clean
or
replace
the
filter
at more
frequent
intervals
to
maintain
peak
vac
performance.
NOTE: A dry filter is necessary to pick up
dry material
If you use your vac to pick up
dust when the filter is wet, the filter will
clog quickly and be very difficult to clean.In
case the filter gets wet, replace it before
continuing to do dry pickups.
Vacuuming
Liquids
1. Removal
of
the
filter
is
highly
recommended
for wet pickups.
2. This wet/dry vac is equipped with a float
mechanism which will rise automatically
to cut off the airflow when the liquid in the
drum reaches
a predetermined
level.
When this happens, turn off vac, unplug
the power cord, and empty the dust drum.
You will know that the float has shut the
airflow off because the suction ceases
and the motor noise becomes higher in
pitch, due to increased motor speed. The
liquid capacity may vary with the rate of
pickup.
IMPORTANT:
To reduce
the
risk
of
damage to the vac, do not run motor with
float in raised position.
