Maintenance
Filter
Your filter should
be cleaned
often
to
maintain
peak vac performance.
NOTE:
The filter is made
of high quality
material
designed
to stop very small
parti-
cles of dust.
Handle
the filter carefully
when removing
to clean or installing
a
new filter. Do not tear the filter during
removal
or installation
if your
intent is to
reuse
the filter.
Easy to Replace
Filter
1. Extend
the
retainer
band
around
the
plastic
posts on the lid.
2. Remove
filter bag off the filter cage.
3. Place
the replacement
filter on the filter
cage until open end touches
bottom of lid.
4. Release
the
retainer
band
from
the
plastic
post on the lid, holding
the filter
bag secure
to the lid.
5. Make
sure
the
retainer
band
is posi-
tioned

IMPORTANT:
To avoid damage
to the
blower
wheel
and motor,
always
reinstall
the filter before using the vac for dry mate-
rial pick-up.
Take the dirty filter to a disposal
container
and gently
brush
away small
dirt particles
that may be adhering
to the filter material.
IMPORTANT:
After cleaning,
check
the fil-
ter 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.
Installation
New filters
may be purchased
at area
Sears
retail stores,
Sears
retail replace-
ment filters are sold by stock
no. 9-16949.
NOTE:
Before
installing
the filter on the
vac, clean the area of the lid so that the
retainer
band will seal the bag against
the
lid and stop small
particles
from bypass-
ing the filter bag.
If the filter is clean and not damaged,
replace
it on the filter cage.
If it cannot
be
reused,
place a new filter over the filter
cage.
Replace
the retainer
band around
the fil-
ter. Make sure the retainer
band is posi-
tioned
on the filter, and the filter
completely
covers
the filter cage. Also,
make sure the edges
of the filter are com-
pletely
secured
under the retainer
band.
NOTE:
For best results
of cleaning
due to
accumulated
dust, clean the filter in an
open
area. Cleaning
should
be done
out-
doors
and not in the living quarters.
Cleaning
To keep your wet/dry
vac looking
its best,
clean the outside
with a cloth dampened
with warm water
and mild soap.
To clean the dust drum:
1. Dump debris
out.
2. Wash
dust drum thoroughly.
3. Wipe
out with dry cloth.
Storage
Before
storing
your vac, the dust drum
should
be emptied
and cleaned.
The cord
should
be wrapped
around
the unit and
the hose should
be stored
as described
in
the cord/hose
storage
section
in this man-
ual. Accessories
should
be kept in the
same
area as the vac so they can be
readily
available.
The vac should
be
stored
indoors.
