Operation
(continued)
Vacuuming
Dry Materials
1. The filter must be in the correct
position
at all times to avoid
leaks and possible
damage
to the 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,
making
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 possi-
ble
leaks
or
tears.
Any
leaks
will
allow
the
picked
up
media
to
be
blown
out
of
the
blower
port
and
back
into
the
surrounding
environ-
ment.
2. When
using
your
vac to pick
up very
fine
dust,
empty
the
dust
drum
and
clean
or replace
the filter
at more
fre-
quent
intervals
to maintain
peak perfor-
mance.
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 recommended
for wet pickups.
2. This wet/dry
vac is equipped
with a float
mechanism
which will rise automatically
to cut off the air flow 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 avoid damage
to the vac
do not run motor with float in raised
posi-
tion.
