Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The question is that is it the inside paper bag or the outside cloth bag? The paper bag simply has a cardboard collar and will just push and twist on to the black fill tube inside the cloth bag, the outer cloth bad is a little bit more difficult, it unhooks @ the top of the vacuum and it has a elastic band around the bottom, but on the inside cloth bag there is a ny tie that you have to cut off and remove in order to remove and change the clothe bag and then you need to get another ny tie that is of equal length to re-install the cloth bag, and the black tube sometimes is wired on with a bailing wire of which you can get @ a hardware store or your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
