2. Make sure the dirt container is empty and is seated correctly.
3. Check that the upholstery hose is installed into the lower hose completely and correctly. If you’re using the upholstery hose and dust is blowing from the lower hose, turn the brush off and lock the unit upright. You may also need to vacuum the area more thoroughly.
