Question about Black & Decker 15.6 Volt DustBuster Vacuum
Posted by Anonymous on
(The below worked with my 9.6v version - I assume the others in the pivot range will be similar).
If you open the lid (where the dust collects) you can twist the inner plastic filter about 30 degrees to unlock it. Then, with a bit of "fiddling" with the fold out part (press the unlock button and rotate the suction part as if you were going to use the unit) then, the plastic internal part and the whole suction bit will come off the motor part. Do this slowly as the inner filter will be full of dust and muck. You can then take the filter out, tap it clean in the bin and then wash and dry it with washing up liquid (gently) and allow to fully dry before putting it all back together again.

SOURCE: I have lost the manual
First of all, here is the main Black And Decker ONLINE SUPPORT page for your model:
To view the Support Page or the Owner's Manual with Operating Instructions just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information at the website indicated.
To download a copy of the OWNER'S MANUAL for that model, just look under the DOWNLOADS heading when you get to the support page and click on the red and white icon beside INSTRUCTION MANUAL (Print Doc).
After you click on that icon, it will ask you if you want to open or save the file.
Now Choose a location on your computer where you would like to save the file.
The easiest place is just right on your DESKTOP so it will be easy to find later.
Then click SAVE.
Once the download completes in about 5 seconds,
Click on the OPEN button.
If the document opens then just read it, or print it off if you want, or just leave it on your computer to reference when you need it later.
If the document does not open, then you may need a PDF viewer program like ADOBE READER installed on your computer to read PDF documents.
You can download this free at WWW.ADOBE.COM if necessary.
Click on the DOWNLOAD ADOBE READER button on right side of the ADOBE home page when you get there and then follow the onscreen instructions to install it.
Install the ADOBE READER program then you can come back to your desktop and open the USER'S MANUAL document and view it without a problem.
Please comment back here to this page if you have any questions, have difficulty accessing the links, or just require further general assistance and I will respond as soon as I see it.
Thank you very much and good luck.

First make sure it's not the wall charger - use a meter or a flashlight bulb to test the 15 or so volts that should be on the contacts when the charger is plugged in but the unit is detached.
The next thing is to remove the filters and see how easily the "fan" spins - use a popsickle stick or something that won't break the plastic fan if you can't get your fingers on it. Tight bearings may indicate clogged with dust (or corrosion) or destroyed. Free bearings likely indicate a switch or battery problem (good motor.)

There should be an area to press at the joint between the front section, and the motor section. The whole front cone comes off to empty the contents, and there is a filter - but no bag with these.
Hope this helps you.
Thanks for using Fixya
