Question about Vacuums
If theres a clog, then youll have to remove the entire section of hose from the vacuum and use a non blunt stick - bamboo sticks are excellent for this purpose. Stretch the whole hose out and put the stick down the hose until you can wriggle the stick down the hose - this usually gets rid of most clogs until it falls out - then you may have to reverse the hose on the other side to dislodge anything which gets stuck from the control side.
You may have to take your model back to Eureka/Electrolux for it to be repaired if theres a clog.

1. Remove the dirt cup canister from the vacuum. Remove the dirt cup lid.
2. Remove the primary foam filter. Rinse the filter under running water until it runs clear. Allow 24 hours to air dry outside of the vacuum.
3. Slide the Hepa filter out. Tap the filter against the trash can until dirt stops falling. Replace the Hepa filter. (Do not wash) Filters should be replaced once a year.
4. Remove the hose from both ends. Use a broom stick to gently loosen and clear any clogs from hose.
5. Remove the bottom plate and brushroll. Use a wooden spoon or something similar to loosen and remove any clogs from the lower hose.
6. Check that the brushes are still spinning. If not, replace the belt.
Hope this helps!
