Sealed paper bag units incorporate a two-layer disposable paper bag for superior filtration. These paper bags are also inexpensive and easy to throw away making vacuum maintenance easy.
The mass of dirt and debris picked up by your ducted ⁄ central vacuum system is deposited in the filter bag inside the dirt canister. To remove this accumulation, follow these simple steps: Sealed Paper Bag Systems.
Remove the lid by lifting straight up (figure 1d)
Remove the bag pulling it off the bag holder stem that protrudes through the side of the canister (figure 2d).
Once the bag is off of the inlet stem, seal the bag by removing the backing from the tab and cover the hole with the flap. Press the flap so that it securely seals the hole (figure 3d). This will help prevent dirt and dust from escaping.
Now, lift the paper bag from the dirt canister and place in a suitable trash container.
Take a new bag and extend it fully (figure 4d), place it in the canister, and slide the rubber gasket onto the inlet stem until the rubber gasket drops into place in the ridge that is around the inlet stem (figure 5d).
Carefully replace the lid onto the dirt canister to ensure that it seals properly or it could cause a vacuum leak and reduce the cleaning efficiency of your system.
How Often Should I Check or Empty The Paper Bag?
The dirt bag should be changed when the bag is 60% 70% full or anytime there is a noticeable reduction of air flow ⁄ suction. Initially, the bag should be checked at least monthly until you can determine how long it will take you to fill the bag to 60% 70% under normal usage.
A vacuum system will function more effectively if the bag is emptied when you reach these levels and never allow the dirt bag to become more than ¾ full before replacing it… Under no circumstances should you let the bag become so overfilled that it bursts or you can’t get it out without cutting it open as shown in the images below
1) Be mindful that a bag will fill more rapidly if vacuuming new carpeted areas as there are loose fibers retained in the manufacturing process. In some instances it may take several months before all of these loose fibers are removed.
2) When replacing a bag it is good practice to lift the plate located under the bag and clean the small screen of any lint or fluff covering the motor orifice. This is particularly necessary if the bag breaks and spills the contents into the vacuum.
