Answer: Use the following steps if your Powerglide® Cordless Vacuum is blowing dust: If your machine is kicking dirt behind the foot, make sure that the suction knob is turned towards "vacuum". If your machine is blowing dust out of the motor, follow the steps below: The dirt tank should be empty and the inner cyclone should be clean. Remove the tank by pressing the “Empty” button on the handle. Over a trash bin, press the empty latch on the bottom back of the dirt tank to empty the tank. Snap shut the bottom lid of the dirt tank. Separate the top handle portion and the bottom tank portion by grasping the carry handle and base of the dirt tank and twisting the carry handle to the unlock position. (Turning carry handle left to right) The filter should be clean and in-place so that the words "Washable Filter" are facing up. If necessary, wash the filter and allow to completely dry before reinserting. Reattach the top handle portion to the bottom tank portion by aligning the black arrow with the unlock white arrow and twisting right until they lock together. Reattach the entire dirt tank to the body of the machine and turn your machine on. If your machine is still blowing dust, please contact us. A representative will be happy to assist you.
