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.

Paper Bag: SC-P11
Filter: SC-F2

I hope this helps you.

How do I take out front plastic part to empty dirt bag when it is full on Shark professional upright?


Greetings Georgiana,

If you stand in front of the vacuum you will see the red button that you use to start it. On the opposite side (on the left of the red button) you will see a round grey/silver button. Grab the handle at the top of the canister that holds the dirt with on hand and press the grey/silver button at the same time pull the canister away from the vacuum.

There is a button in the front of the canister that releases the trap door at the bottom. Make sure you have it over your trash can when you push that button.

As you can see I just used mine and haven't had a chance to clean it yet! Sorry about that but I figured I get this to as soon as I could!

I hope this helps! :-) a906ac6d-dc2e-416c-b1c0-3603fdb998e9.jpg 3c0114c0-5922-4439-a9dd-1f57a2528b93.jpg 6cc600a6-72a8-4be3-acdd-8bc4e6fead96.jpg

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!

Nothing going into dirt canister


Is there suction at the hose? If not it is either blocked or the suction fan is broken. If there is, then there is a blockage in the pickup section, something is lodged across the channel after the brushes and before the place where the hose plugs in.

I think there is a safety switch to prevent it from running with the canister out so hard to check for suction at the top of the motor/suction fan. Make sure nothing is over that part under the canister too! If you can figure out how to bypass the safety switch (if there is one), you should have good suction where the canister sets on top of the motor base.

My kenmore quick clean vacuum cleaner has no suction. Just seems to blow the dirt out and away from the cleaner. The canister is empty and the filter is clean, so what's going on?


Hi,
The hose or hoses are plugged...take all the hoses apart and stretch them out... run a stiff wire through them or something like a broom handle...you will find that they are full of dust and dirt inside...

There is no suction, even though the container is empty


Your hose is clogged and needs to be cleared. You may have to remove one or both ends of the hose that connects the dirt to the container.

You might have success trying to "back vacuum" the hose. A broom handle is sure to clear the clog, however.
