Reduction in Suction Due to Clogged Afterfilters
Remove attachments from the clip on top of the canister.
Press the release latch at the rear of the canister and lift the filter grille away from the main body of the machine.
Remove the clogged afterfilter and replace with a new one.
Insert the two tabs on the filter grille into the corresponding slots on the canister and push the grille back into position.
Cleaner's Hose is Clogged
Remove cleaning attachments from the clip on the top of the canister.
Press the release latch at the rear of the vacuum to free the cover.
Lift the afterfilter off its position.
Insert the machine end of the cleaner's hose, which is normally attached to the front of the canister, into the blower attachment receptacle that lies under the afterfilter.
Switch the Ambassador vacuum on, and the blockage should be blown out of the hose.
Object Caught in Sidekick Attachment
Switch off the Sidekick attachment, which is a tool powered by its own motor and designed for easy maneuverability.
Switch off Ambassador vacuum.
Turn the Sidekick over. If the object is caught in the revolving brush, remove it gently.
Detach the handgrip if the object is trapped further into the unit. The blockage can then be removed through the rear.
- Use your Ambassador Vacuum's crevice tool attached to the extension wand to clean hot air registers. This means you will not have to kneel or stoop.
- Place the round dusting brush on the handgrip and turn the suction down to a very gentle level to carefully remove dust from delicate ornaments.
- Vacuum brush attachments with the end of the handgrip after use to keep them dust and dirt free.
