You can remove the remaining section of the original catch by levering it out with a very small screwdriver. The new one should then clip into place. If you need any further assistance, please give our Helpline a call free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US).
Check the filter. If it's dirty, the motor will overheat, resulting in the machine shutting off.
Rinse thoroughly in warm water, and allow to air dry thoroughly before reinstalling. I recommend having two filters so you have one to use while the other is drying.
Other problems are possible, but generally entail taking the vacuum to a repair shop for diagnosis and repair.
You would not normally need to replace the filter unless it is damaged. Access is from inside the tank itself. Remove the bucket and locate the finger loop on the existing filter. Pull toward the inside of the bucket. Replace the filer by setting in it's track and snapping tight to the wall of the vac. Unless damaged you can save and clean the old filter for reuse.

Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. A central vac not knowing the brand name or model # uses regular household current and plugs into a regular household inlet and I have never heard of wiring the central vac to the breaker box. The central vac is usually out in the garage or down the basement and will be in the regular household current. You may want to ask the manufacturer or the vac dealer you purchased the central vac from and they might have more information for your and if your central vac needs to be wired to the breaker box they will give you instructions, but I don’t believe that you need to do so. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Generic problem for all Vacuums How do I clean the How do I clean the filters? Comment by Avonb, posted on Apr 22, 2008I have a Bagless twin clean, thought I was cleaning the filters but apparently not, the manual is very vague I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Not knowing the Model # or Brand name, it is a good idea that you can vacuum of the filters, if you have a blower – you can blow off the dirt from the filters, some filters are washable and you can clean them by washing them and letting them dry completely before you re-install the filters. Idea? If you have an old paint brush, that is ideal to clean off HEPA filters or cartridge filters or use a blower to clean off the dirt. You need to be the best judge on how to clean the filters. You can check the company’s website for the brand name such as: http://www.hoover.com ---- example given Don – The Vac Man
