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.

Tools

  • Phillips head screwdriver
  • Needle nose pliers
  • Flat head screwdriver

 

Instructions

 

Start by flipping your power head over and removing the 11 screws so that you can separate the bottom plate from the top. Set the screws aside in a safe place.

 

Flip back over and remove the top cover.

 

Unplug the wire that goes to the top cover and set the cover aside.

 

There are 2 more screws holding the pivot in place. Remove those and set aside.

 

The pivot will need to be moved so that you can get to the pedal.

 

To get the foot pedal out, you'll need to remove a metal pin and a small metal spring. To remove this pin use your flat head screwdriver to push it partway out. Then you can remove the foot pedal with the pin and spring.

 

Use the needle nose pliers to pull the pin out of the pedal. Don’t lose the spring, because you will need it for the replacement.

 

To assemble the new foot pedal, insert the pin partway.

 

Take the spring and line the longer, straight end up in the back of the pedal.

 

Then push the spring down so the pin can go through the spring and out the other side.

 

Push the pin through just to the other side as shown above.

 

Insert the long end of the pin into the pin hole.

 

Pushing down on the foot pedal, take your flat head screwdriver and bend the angled end of the spring into the hole.

 

Now, push the pin in the rest of the way.

 

Once the foot pedal is in you can replace the pivot.

 

Reconnect the plug.

 

Replace the top cover, making sure not to pinch any wires.

 

Finally, flip the power head over and then replace the screws.

Instructions

 

First, we’ll take a look at an ozone generator. To access the fan you’ll need to take off the top cover. There are screws on the sides and top handle portion. Once the screws are removed you can take the top handle off and then remove the top cover.

 

This is a great time to not only clean the fan, but to clean everything else on the inside. To clean the fan you can use an air compressor, canned air, rag or a duster brush.

 

Now we’ll show you how to access the fan on a 6 stage New Comfort air purifier. If you have a front grill, accessing the fan is going to be a breeze.

 

On some models there is a notch on the bottom of the grill where you can get your fingers under. Then you can just pop the grill off.

 

 

If you don’t have a notch you can use a flat head screwdriver to get between the case and the grill and pop it off that way.

 

Once it’s off you have access to the fan. You can use an air compressor, canned air, rag, or duster brush to clean it.
