Tip & How-To about Shark Vacuum Cleaner HEPA Filter X9602H for Euro-Pro Transformer Vac EP602

Your vacuum cleaner doesn't suck much?

You have emptied the dust canister for many times. You hear the motor running, but it doesn't pick up much. Your vacuum cleaner is still OK...
If the motor was not running at the beginning, I suggest you read some other Fixya troubleshooting tip.
Now it's just TIME to replace these filters.
They come in set of 2, a first one has a cylinder shape and a second one is flat.

I recommend as a good consumer, you to first order a new set, cause this cleaning process may be spread over few days. Unless you wish not vacuum for a while...
After replacing with the new one under the cannister, here is how you RECYCLE the old one.

Important Safety Rules First:

  1. This procedure should be done only outside of your home. Stay away from all clean surfaces as hanging bed sheets, rugs, clothing, and open windows : cause one wind drought may give you more work to do ;-( !
  2. Always wear a safety mask, for obvious reasons: since we don't know what's in there: breathing any dust is very hazardous to your health. Better be safe than... sorry :-(
  3. You should wear rubber gloves and old clothes. Why would you get your hands or your clothes dirty?
Brush out all you can off the cylinder and the flat filter with a cleanup brush or disposable rag.
Soak the used vacuum filters in a disposable container (yogurt or ice cream) ;-) filled with soapy water (1tb spoon dishsoap in 1/2 quart or liter of water). Soak for 10min. Rince once. Refill again with soapy water and let it soak overnight.
Rince it now with clear wather. Looking through it you shall see most of the dust should be gone.
Do not replace these wet filters the same day in your vacuum cleaner because it would obviously damage it's motor. Why do you have to hurry for?

Let it DRY in a warm place or in direct sun for another day! Store it until you are ready to replace it again.
Your have RECYCLED once more! You may do it as a few more times as long as it doesn't affect the performance of your vacuum cleaner.
This process could be applied to many more vacuum cleaners and some household items we normally throw away.

How do you access the motor and guts of an Aeruslux or Electrolux Canister Vacuum Cleaner


Hi, I can help. Flip the canister on it's back. Remove all crews. Should pull apart from there. If not check around body to see if it's clipped. You may have to pry the sides apart. That will give you access. Be careful and pay attention to where everything is. Good luck.

Emptied the hoover and now it wont switch on


The switch that is activated by the canister is your likely culprit based that it was working prior to emptying. Youtube has a quick video on this solution.

Take the filters out and turn the vacuum on, if it will stay running without the filters in it you need to replace the filters. Filters should be replaced every few months. Clogged filters still pick up some dirt but miss a lot plus it causes the motor to run hot which will cause damage to the motor reducing it's life.
