EMPTYING THE DIRT CANISTER & CLEANING THE GUARD SCREEN
For True Cyclonic Models: 260, 466Q, 566Q, 760 & MaxAir
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 motor guard screen should be cleaned each time you empty the dirt canister.The motor guard screen is located directly above the dirt canister inside the power unit. The guard screen is NOT removable. It is designed to prevent
lightweight fibers from entering the motor impeller blades. A buildup of material on the guard screen may result in a loss of vacuum.
