How do I clear clogs in my PowerForce® Bagless Vacuum?


1. Upper hose

a. First off, detach the hose from the machine by twisting counterclockwise.

b. Then push a broomstick (or something along those lines) into the hose to push any obstruction through the end of the hose. We don’t recommend you use anything unlike a broom, such as a coat hanger, as it could damage the hose.

2. Lower Hose


a. Start by removing the screw from the left side of the lower hose on the back of the unit. Lay the vacuum on its side, with the lower hose facing up.

b. With the hose loose, straighten it into one line. Look through the hose for obstructions. Push a broomstick through the lower hose to unclog it.
