Why is my Zing® Bagless Canister blowing dust?

Answer:
Use the following steps if your Zing® Bagless Canister is blowing dust:
  • Locate the post-motor filter on the back of the vacuum. Press down on the filter door tab to remove the door. 
  • Clear away any debris build up on and around the filter. If necessary, wash the filter and allow to completely dry before reassembly. Reattach the filter door.

  • Detach the hose from the base of the machine by twisting the hose counterclockwise and pulling out.

  • Check the hose section by section for cracks. If a crack is found, a new hose needs to be ordered.
  • Remove the dirt tank by pressing the release button and lifting the tank away from the machine.
  • Over a trash bin, press the empty latch on the back of the tank.
  • With the empty lid still open, remove the filter by twisting it counterclockwise.
  • Separate the filter screen from the filter by lifting the screen up off the filter base. Clear away any debris build up. Wash pieces if necessary.
