How to empty it


1. Push down on carry handle and
pull dirt container away from unit.

2. Once it is pulled back lift it out.

3. Hold dirt container over trash can and push down on bottom
release lever to release debris.

4. Close bottom cover on the dirt
cup until it snaps shut.

While you have the dirt container out you can also clean the Lifetime HEPA filter. It is on the top of the dirt container.

1. Twist lid to the left to remove lid and filter from
container

2. Remove foam filter from dirt container and dump out
any loose dirt. Wash the foam filter.

3. Remove the HEPA filter by Twist filter handle to the left and
pull out of lid. Wash the Heap filter.

4. Once the filters are thoroughly dry (I recommend set out for 24 hours) then installer filters in lid and thread back on top of the dirt canister.

Before replacing the dirt canister you can also clean the exhaust filter install below the dirt canister on the top vacuum cleaner head.

1. Loosen the exhaust grille by pressing the locking tab, and
remove it.

2. Remove and shake out the exhaust filter and wash it.
Note: Scented filter are not washable.

3. Once the filters are thoroughly dry relace it and snap the
exhaust grill into place.

Replace the dirt container
NOTE: Dirt container will not
align on base if filter is not
aligned properly.

Hi has the dyson dc14 got a filter on the bottom ,side that *** off to the top filter thanks .


Hi there,

I'm not sure if I've understood your question correctly, but the DC14 has one washable filter, and one filter which does not require maintenance.

The washable filter is located in a compartment on top of the cyclone assembly - under normal use, this should be washed at least once every 3-6 months. Use cold water without detergent, and allow up to 12 hours for the filter to dry completely before replacing it. For guidance on washing the filter, please see the video linked below:

Everytime we go to use the machine, the red float gets sucked up and stops suction like the tank is full, but it is empty. only when we tilt the handle back to use does it do this.. Suggestions?? ...


This is usually caused by the filter on the float cage being too far up. There should be a gap of about 3/4 of an inch between the top of the mesh filter, and the bottom of the tank lid.

How to cook hamburgers - temperature, etc.


Hi,

Prepare Patties

1. Put minced scallions and chopped mushrooms in bowl.
2. Add red wine vinegar.
3. Add ground beef to bowl.
4. Mix everything together with your hands.
5. Flatten the beef into four patties that are 1/2-inch thick and 5 inches in diameter.

Cook Patties

1. Set stove-top grill or burner to medium-high.
2. Preheat nonstick frying pan. The pan is the correct temperature when a drop of water dances on its surface rather than sticking to it.
3. Place patties in the pan and cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
4. Flip patties and cook for another minute, and then add sliced cheese to the tops of patties if desired.
5. Cover pan and allow burgers to cook for a final 2 minutes. Cook 3 to 4 minutes for well-done burgers.
6. Remove hamburgers from pan and place in hamburger buns.
7. Add condiments and toppings such as ketchup, mustard, sliced tomatoes, lettuce, red onions and pickles.

How much dirty water should end up in the recovery tank? I'm not getting back but a fraction of the water that goes out BACK IN... It's a heated model. Is the water evaporationg or is something wrong?...


About 3/4 of the water dispensed should be extracted. If not, there are a couple possibilities. If the float assembly in the lid of the dirty water tank has a mesh filter on it, be sure there is a gap of about 1/2 inch between the top of the filter, and the bottom of the lid. Without this gap the recovery of dirty water will be prematurely stopped. Another problem could be that the pick up nozzle is not making good contact with the carpet. This occurs if the machine has been dropped on it's nose and the screws holding it firmly in place have broken loose from the plastic.

Brushes will not turn


(1) Remove the brushes by pulling down at the ends.
Is the square pin present on the top of one brush? It should be approximately 1/4 inch square, and two inches long. That connects the brushes to the drive mechanism.
(2) Assure the manual shutoff on the hood is not set to OFF, for the Brush Speed
(3) Remove and clean the filter screen under the cleaner. This should be a red panel, behind the brushes. Squeeze the two tabs, pull down the panel, and clean the hair/debris off the filter screen.

Our machine works 3 minutes - and then 10 minutes it does not


The usual suction problem with these things is related to a clogged lint filter. I had the same problem as you with my carpet being completely soaked. Try checking the lint filter. It is located in the top clear plastic section (the one with the dial to switch from tool to floor use). There is a small (1 inch square) red plastic filter on the under side. Try flipping open the little door and you will probably find it clogged with hair and carpet fibre. Clean it out and hopefully you will have suction again.

Bissell 9500 2x deep clean (NO SUCTION)


Like everyone else (!) your lint filter is probably clogged. It is located on the top clear palstic section (the one with the dial to switch from tool to floor use) and is on the underside. It is a small (1 inch square) red plastic filter with a little door on it. Flip the door open and you will probably find it is clogged with hair, carpet fibre., etc.. Clean it out and you should have suction again.
