1. To use the blower, simply attach the hose to the Blower Outlet on the side of the vacuum. When the power is turned on, the vacuum will blow instead of suction. To switch back, simply remove the hose from the blower inlet and put into the hose inlet. Please note: when hose attached to the Blower Outlet, the Suction Inlet on the front will still have suction.
The hose is “keyed” for the Blower Outlet. Press in until keyed edge clears, then rotate to lock into place.
2. Check if the hose is correctly attached to the Blower Outlet. If it’s not¸ go on to step 3. If it is, unplug the electrical cord from outlet, pull the dirt tank off and check the filters (see our “no suction” FAQ for details). Also, check for a clog in the hose. For details, see our “clearing clogs” FAQ.
3. If the hose isn’t attached correctly, make sure the hose is attached to the blower inlet (right-side of machine, on top of the muffler), and securely locked into place.
