Sanitaire Vacuum Filters and Bags

Sanitaire vacuum replacement partsYour vacuum might have lowered its cleaning power- but wait- have you checked the amount of dirt in the bag or changed the filter in the recent past? That could be all you need to get your machine functioning as well as new. It is possible to fix almost all vacuum problems.

A clean filter and empty bag mean better vacuuming and a purer atmosphere in your home or business. Filters and bags hold the dust from your surfaces and hold it back to avoid air contamination. Asthmatics and those suffering from allergies can safely use the vacuum because allergens remain trapped inside the bag. The filter effectively traps dust, pollen, and other fine particles. 

However, after a few cleaning sessions, the dirt in the bag accumulates while the filter pores fill up with the fine dust particles. This calls for a replacement to keep your vacuum running in full power. Filter issues could end up damaging your motor, forcing you to purchase a new vacuum. Prolong your vacuum's life by regularly replacing the filters and bags.

How to Change Filters on Sanitaire Commercial Vacuums

The SC9180B's HEPA exhaust filter 

The exhaust filter is easy to remove since it is attached to the side of the body. Press the plastic tab and pull the filter away to remove it from the housing. Spread the gathers to clean all dirt from the spaces in between. Ensure you properly clean the filter. 

Leave to dry for at least twenty-four hours. Ensure the filter is completely dry before fitting it back in place. A wet filter can damage your motor, leading to the breakdown of your vacuum. To put it back in its place, insert the filter halfway into the slots and push it towards the housing until it clicks into place. Pressing the tab down as you slide the filter in place makes the work easier. 

The SC9180B's motor filter 

The motor filter is positioned at the foot of the bag chamber, held fast by a plastic net. Removing it is relatively easy as you can open the bag compartment and remove the bag without unwrapping the power cord from the housing.

You may change or clean the filter as needed. Rinse the filter well and leave it to dry for about 24 hours.  Remove the filter and clean or change it as necessary. Fixing the filter is as easy as removing it. With the grid side facing down, insert it until it clicks.

Sanitaire SC5845B exhaust filter

The SC5845B's exhaust filter is also found on the housing side. Removing the filter is as easy as pressing the tab and pulling it out. Just like the SC180B' exhaust and motor filters, this exhaust filter is also washable. Make sure to dry it for more than 24 hours before fixing it back. 

To put it back in place, press down the plastic tab as you slide the pegs into the two holes at the bottom of the housing while pushing the top of the filter. Release the tab once you ensure the filter is in place. 

The SC5845B motor filter

Sanitaire vacuum filtersTo clean your motor filter, remove the dust chalice positioned at the front of the housing. Open the dust cup to remove the cylindrical filter inside. After washing it, place it in an area where there is air movement, such as beside a window, to dry for 24 hours. After ensuring that it is well dried, slide it back inside the dust cup and reassemble the cup. 

The Sanitaire SC5713B HEPA filter 

The washable HEPA filter captures more than 95% of tiny allergens and dust particles and is approved by CRI Green. The HEPA filtration system makes commercial vacuuming quiet and user-friendly. The HEPA filter ensures a clean atmosphere as you vacuum your business premises. With HEPA filtration, you won't have to worry about the dust escaping back into the atmosphere.
