Filter
WARNING: To reduce the risk of
injury from accidental starting, unplug
power cord before changing or
cleaning filter.
NOTE: This filter is made of high quality
paper designed to stop very small
particles of dust. The filter can be used
for wet or dry pick up. Handle the filter
carefully when removing to clean or
installing it. Creases in the filter pleats
may occur from installation but creases
will not affect the performance
of the
filter.
Filter Cleaning
Your filter should be cleaned often to
maintain peak Vac performance.
Be sure to dry the filter before storing or
picking up dry debris.
IMPORTANT: After cleaning, check the
filter for tears or small holes. Do not use
a filter with holes or tears in it. Even a
small hole can cause a lot of dust to
come out of your Vac. Replace it
immediately.
Filter Removal
and Replacement
IMPORTANT: To reduce the risk of
damage to the blower wheel and motor,
always reinstall the filter before using the
Vac for dry material pickup.
Filter Removal:
1. Hold the filter tabs of the Qwik Lock
TM
filter in each hand.
2. With one thumb on the Qwik Lock
TM
stud, which protrudes through the
integrated filter plate, lift up on the filter
tabs while pushing down on the stud.
3. This action will cause the filter to
release from the filter cage. Slide filter
off cage.
Filter Installation:
1. Carefully slide the Qwik Lock
TM
filter
over the filter cage and press down on
the outside edge of the filter until the
rubber gasket on the bottom of the filter
seats securely around the base of the
filter cage and against the lid.
2. Align the small center hole in the top of
the filter over the Qwik Lock
TM
stud on
the filter cage.
Press firmly on top of
the filter near the stud to allow the filter
to snap over the ball on the end of the
stud. The filter is now attached.
