There should be a cover on the top of the unit that says HEPA filter. There should be a little finger groove there to grab the cover and pull it off. Sometimes you may need a screwdriver or butter knife to get it open. The filter will be under that cover.

Good Luck,
Mark

    sorry, my error, the EF1 Filter is located at the very back of the unit between the two wheels. It is behind a plastic cover that does have to pop off as well. There should be a finger grip area there to pull it off. If not again, the screwdriver or butter knife will work as well.

    Thanks,
    Mark

Hi, I purchased a used Oreck BB870-AD canister vacuum cleaner, but it didn't come with the manual or any bags. Can you tell me where I can find the manual & what type of bags do I need?


The manual is available as a PDF here: http://www.oreck.com/Owners-Guides . Scroll down to the Canisters section and then select the link for the Compact Canister vacuum.

The replacement bag that you should use is: Oreck Replacement Treated Filter Bags (12 pk. with
1 Micro Filter) No. PKBB12DW which cost $14.99 for each package from Oreck. On the Oreck site, these are the Hand-Vac Bags. See: http://www.oreck.com/Hand-Vac-Bags to order them online.

I hope this helps.

Should I remove the filter when using it as a wet vac. I t does not seem to have much suction.


Absolutely remove the filter for wet vac. Also, if your present filter got wet replace it as the pores are now clogged and you can't save it. J.

How to change upper filters?


Open the vac as though to change the cone and remove the plastic inner cone with the slotted screw at the bottom.. Underneath you will find a 5" disk , likely coated with fine dust.
That is the one which needs to be changed. Around that disc will be three more screws holding the upper housing onto the vac. These ones are accessible from inside, if changing the motor.
Below the handle of the vac there is a serial number ring and three screws in an offset triangle. If you remove these and the rubber cover for the toe switch, the vac housing will come off. This will reveal the `foam or cotton ``muffler``. You can replace it or wash and dry it if foam. It acts as a muffler more than a a filter....

How do you change the ridgid 9 gallon wet/dry shop vac from a dry to wet vac? Is it simply changing the hose to the back fitting?


all you have to do is open it up and take the paper filter off and then it's a wet vac. If it has a foam over filter you leave that on

How to use the after filters for the electrolux canister vacuum


At the back of the vac on top you will have a removable grille. Release the thumb tab to lift the grill.Older models had this tab at the back of the grille. The filters will sit underneath. They should clip into the round exhaust opening. Then replace the grille. Change filters every 6 bags. More often if you have pets or allergies.

How to change filters on a Kenmore canister vacuum


Depending on age there may be one or two filters. A Hepa filter is an exhaust filter generally at the back end of the vac, sometimes at the back top.
For this style filter there will be a small grill with a release tab on it, simply pull the finger tab and the grill should pop off revealing the filter.
There is normally a bag chamber filter behind the dust bag as well. Open the bag chamber below the tool storage and remove the bag.There will be a soft filter sitting behind the bag on most models. If it is a sponge type it can be washed and reinstalled when dry, but if fabric it is disposable.Make sure you have replacement filters in hand before changing as some filters simply pop into a reusable frame, often a red frame. If the material slides out the frame is generally reusable, if glued in , it is likely disposable.
USE only the specified filter and chose the best quality multi ply filter bags for maximum vac performance and efficiency

Electrolux vacuum turning off


hi take off canister cover remove bag now if you look inside canister you will/should see a gauze type filter at the opposite end of canister from where bag locks in ?? remove this gauze filter and for now just shake tap on floor to remve dust/debri etc /from it this gauze is the filter that when vac is working andfilling the dust bag ? the pressure of air only that blows bag up but allows only air to pass thro the microscopic holes in bag ? then has to expel via the gauze filter to exterior ? and any dust etc that is clever enough to seep through the bag ??? will not pass further due to gauze ? and so prevents this blowing back into room ok so far ?? if this gauze is blocked due to whatever ?? then pressure build up in canister will result in cover lifting? this is provided that the fault is not the actual cover securing latch is ok and not damaged ? hope this explains and helps ? best wishes from uk !

open the top of the vacuum. remove ONLY the filter element. There should be a ball about a two inch diameter inside the cage. It's purpose is to shut off the vacuum flow when water reaches a high in the canister.
