Dirt canister lid is stuck on

The canister lid is stuck on to the canister and so I can't empty it out. Since it's pretty full, I can't keep vacuuming with it. Any ideas on how to open it?

How do i clean canister of dirt devil featherlight bagless caniter vacuum


Hi there! To clean the canister or dirt cup, first remove the dirt cup from the vacuum. Twist off the dirt cup lid. Remove the pleated filter and empty the dirt cup. Tap the filter against the trash can until the dirt stops falling. If the filter is really dirty it may need to be replaced. The filter should be replaced every 6 months. I have included a link where you may go to purchase a replacement filter if needed.

Thanks! Hope this helps!

How to empty it


1. Push down on carry handle and
pull dirt container away from unit.

2. Once it is pulled back lift it out.

3. Hold dirt container over trash can and push down on bottom
release lever to release debris.

4. Close bottom cover on the dirt
cup until it snaps shut.

While you have the dirt container out you can also clean the Lifetime HEPA filter. It is on the top of the dirt container.

1. Twist lid to the left to remove lid and filter from
container

2. Remove foam filter from dirt container and dump out
any loose dirt. Wash the foam filter.

3. Remove the HEPA filter by Twist filter handle to the left and
pull out of lid. Wash the Heap filter.

4. Once the filters are thoroughly dry (I recommend set out for 24 hours) then installer filters in lid and thread back on top of the dirt canister.

Before replacing the dirt canister you can also clean the exhaust filter install below the dirt canister on the top vacuum cleaner head.

1. Loosen the exhaust grille by pressing the locking tab, and
remove it.

2. Remove and shake out the exhaust filter and wash it.
Note: Scented filter are not washable.

3. Once the filters are thoroughly dry relace it and snap the
exhaust grill into place.

Replace the dirt container
NOTE: Dirt container will not
align on base if filter is not
aligned properly.

Light keeps flashing on top of canister of my Hoover Wind Tunnel but I emptied and cleaned it well. It sounds right when I turn it on then it goes into this sound like something is stuck but there...


sounds like a possible plug ,then when you first start it up the plug gets stuck a gain.
try taking hose off the unit and running water through hose .if water flows good ,check and see if lid is secure when closed.

Ho wdo I change the filter on the Eureka optima.. HELP!!! thank U !


open the canister like you are going to empty out the dirt canister. there will be a tab to push in near the back side of the machine on the lid of the dirt canister. It has a push tab at the back and a stationary tab that locks in at the front.

If you do not have a new filter handy, you can brush out as much dirt as you can with say an old tooth brush or paint brush. you will want to replace the filter on this unit at least once a year.

good luck.

I can not find how to get the canister apart to empty the dirt.


From the bottom of your machine going upwards past the handle that is on the canister portion of this vacuum, you will see that the top of that canister had a depression where you should be able to put your fingers in, and gently pull that lid back, opening the vacuum bag compartment. According to the manual, simply pull that back, exposing the bag. To remove the bag, pull the cardboard plate on the top of the bag, out towards the no open face. Throw away your old bag, and take your new bag, fold down the paper sides of the bag, then slide the new bag into the track completely. Close your lid, and you are done.
While you have this compartment open, it's a good idea to check your filter that sits below the paper bag.

Part numbers
Paper Bag: SC-P11
Filter: SC-F2

I hope this helps you.
