Filtered Cyclonic Maintenance
Emptying the Dirt Canister &
Maintenance the Filter
For Filtered Cyclonic™ Models: FC300, FC550, FC650 &
The dirt canister is the removable lower portion of the power
unit. The canister needs to be removed and emptied when it is
2/3 full. The filter should be replaced at least once a year.
NOTE:When the dirt canister is removed the cyclonic cone
will be visible. The cone is held in place with a friction seal
designed to hold the cone to the body of the power unit
when the canister is removed. The cone can be removed
by pulling on it. This allows access to the filter.
