How to maintain your vacuum cleaner

Maintanence and general care

To keep your cleaner giving the best suction power and picking up efficiently we recommend that you empty the dust box when it is 2/3 full. Also cleaning the 2 filters once a week and washing them once per month is necessary to keep the cleaner working effectively. Hoover recommend that you replace the filters once per year and you can purchase these from the spares section of our website.

Remove the dust box and take it to your dust bin, press the flap release trigger and empty it out as shown

Maintenance and general care

There are 2 filters fitted to the product, for best cleaning results they should be removed and cleaned at least once per month. It is also a good idea to wash them in warm water at least every couple of months or if they are really clogged up, the frequency will depend on how often you are using the product. After they have been washed they should be allowed to dry out thoroughly before re fitting them into the cleaner. We recommend that for best results you replace the filters once per year and these can be purchased from the spares section of our website. Regular emptying of the dust box is also recommended, once the box is 2/3 full take it off the cleaner and empty out the contents into your dustbin. The container may be washed in warm water and once its dry re fit to the cleaner.

Also we recommend that you fit a new drive belt at least once per year. Check that the brushes have not worn down, again replacement belt and brushes can be purchased from our website. If you have had your cleaner for over one year then the dirt pick up will improve if you replace the brush roll - giving your carpet that 'groomed' look as well as a deep down clean!
