Shark hand held vacuum cleaners are convenient machines that can handle small messes in place of the larger, bulkier vacuum cleaners. The battery-powered cleaners have a detachable dust cup that collects debris for easy disposal. A filter is needed in the dust cup to protect the delicate components of the vacuum motor. Running the vacuum without the filter could lead to dirt and debris entering the motor, causing damage that may render the vacuum inoperable.
Things You'll Need
- Shark hand held vacuum filter (supplied with the unit)
Press the dust cup release button located on the top of the cleaner where the dust cup and the motor meet.
Insert the filter into the dust cup. Do not forcibly insert the filter into the dust cup. It should slide in with no resistance.
Align the dust cup with the motor and push the two pieces together. You will hear a click when the dust cup locks in place. You are now ready to use the vacuum.
