When changing the belt on your power nozzle, make sure to take the end roller bearings off, and clean out all the hair and debris that gets packed in there. After that you should add a few drops of 3in1 oil, OR sewing machine oil to the bearings. (You could add some oil to the motor bearings also if you like).This will insure the freedom that your roller, belt and motor all need to run smoothly. Performing this little chore everytime you change your belt will greatly increase the life, and performance of your vacuum...

 

When changing the bag in your vacuum, you may be tempted to clean out the inside of the bag chamber. If you do wash out the inside of the bag chamber? Make sure it is completely dry before you put a new bag in. If the new bag gets even one drop of water on it, the bag will tear the minute you turn on your vacuum... Do NOT get your vacuum bags wet...

 

When changing the filters in your vacuum, make sure to get the proper replacement filter(s) for your specific vacuum! It's not worth taking a shortcut, because if the filter does not fit properly, you run the risk of damaging the main vacuum motor. There are usually 2 filters in a vacuum. The first primary filter, that usually sits behind the bag. This filter is designed to keep any dirt out of the motor, that may have slipped through the bag. The secondary, or exhaust filter is designed to keep any dirt that gets through the bag, or first filter from getting back out into the air, as well as carbon dust from the main motor itself. It would be wise to check these filters every time you change your bag... This way the vacuum will always be working at peak performance...
