Don't bother emptying it. It just clogs, brush won't turn, won't even vacuum up a staple on low pile - office-type carpet. The filters clog, the cup clogs, and frankly, your time is worth more than the $50-75 to replace this vacuum.

How do you empty it?


http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pdfimages/e1/e1548aa7-3a91-42bc-b2c0-1b405ef54686.pdf

This owners manual shows you how to empty. If you dont have access to Internet:
1. Depress the dirt cup release button and pull nozzle away from unit.
2. Hold nozzle over a wastebasket, Grasp filter and gently pull out.
3. Shake excess dirt and debris out of dirt cup. Brush the dust and dirt off the filter or shake inside the wastebasket. IMPORTANT do not wash filter.
4. Gently push the filter back into the dirt cup.
5. To reattach dirt cup: Align bottom first and rotate nozzle up until it snaps into place.
Good luck.

WHY IS IT SO HARD TO ASSEMBLE THE DIRT CUP INTO THE VACUUM


Good seal between the cups ensures that the vacuum cleaner has full suction. Check that there is no dirt or damage on the lip of the filter cup causing it to be jam up and be hard to assemble.,

Remove the dust cup by pressing the button on the top of the cup.
Pull cup out.
Place over garbage can or into a bag and press the red button.
Shake a bit until cup is empty.
Return cup to holder and secure it by pressing in until it clicks.

I can not get the dirt cup out to empty it.


Just slide the dark gray release tab, located just below the cup, all the way to open position, and then pull the Easy Empty Cup toward you.

I do not know how to put the container back on the dynamite quick vac after emptying the dirt out?


after emptying the dirt cup make sure that the arrows are lined up on the top and bottom of the cup you have to put the bottom of the cup in at an angle first and make sure that the small handle is pointed towards the cut out in the handle section then just push the top flush with the handle and it should just snap in, i hope this helped let me know all comments are helpful thanks Don the Vacuum Doctor Alb NM

Same problem removing the easy empty cup..


The dark gray plastic slide is separate from the Easy Empty Cup. Just slide the release tab all the way to open position, and then pull the Easy Empty Cup straight up. With a little effort, the cup will dislodge from the dark gray plastic platter.

How do you empty the easy empty cup


sometimes the platform the cup sits on needs to be pushed down away from the cup then it slids out easily

I have acquired an old Regina Electrik Broom


Hi jmathe, Looking at the back (business side) of the vacumn: Underneath the white plastic dirt cup, please find a cast aluminum latch, that secures the part you will empty. To remove the white plastic part, turn the aluminum latch handle downward, and to your right, while you are holding on to the dirt cup with your left hand. I usually wear a dust mask, and empty the dirt into a small grocery bag, to tie shut, before placing it in the trash. To replace the dirt cup, turn the cast aluminum handle back to where it was before, handle pointing left. The more often you empty the cup, the longer your Regina Electrik Broom will last. Mine is forty-five years old. Allow the motor to cool, often, as well.

I experienced the same problem of being unable to remove the dust cup. Inspection of the dust cup appeared to indicated two tabs on the bottom of the dust cup preventing it from sliding straight out as illustrated in the instructions. However, after much fiddling, I assumed that the dust cup with the tabs was probably a slightly different part than actually intended for that particular model (2996avr) and so decided to force the cup out, reasoning that if the tabs broke in the process, that was necessary for removal of the cup anyway, and therefore not detrimental.

HOWEVER, upon forcing the cup out, the cup broke away from a plate upon which it is designed to sit. The cup had apparently become stuck to the plate after much use without sufficient care and cleaning. The plate is what the tabs are attached to, and so by breaking the cup free of the plate, the tabs were not an issue, and the cup easily slid in and out of the housing, as intended. It was also observed, upon removal of the cup, that there is a very slight lip on the front of the plate to secure the cup in the proper position; this would likely act as an additional hinderance if the cup was also stuck to the plate by old cemented grime.
