Important Safety Tips

  • Always make sure your machine is unplugged and the power button is turned off, before servicing your vacuum.
  • Always make sure your hands are dry and free from moisture before servicing your machine.
  • Be sure to wear gloves when servicing your machine to prevent any cuts or scrapes.
  • If you are uncomfortable working on your vacuum, please don’t hesitate to contact us at and we can help you through the process or you can send it into us to fix it for you. 


Note: This method works for attaching wands and tools to both the main hose and the tool hose.

There are two tool wands – straight and curved. If you have an E-series they will have button locks.

To attach the straight tool wand, simply line up the button lock on the main hose with the hole on the wand. Press down the button lock as you insert the hose end and it will snap into place. The tools may have button locks as well.

To remove a tool you just press down the button lock as you pull the tool and wand apart.

You can attach the curved wand to the straight wand the same way – line up the button lock and press down as you push the two wands together.

The curved wand is designed to work with the floor tool. The floor tool has two slots inside the neck that need to be lined up with the two nubs on the curved wand. Once the floor tool is on you need to twist it to lock it into place.

You can still attach other tools to the curved wand, however they will not be securely attached and may come loose.
