Check to see that there are no holes of tears on the filter. If you do find a hole of tear on the filter, replace it before using.

First check to see that the filter is attached correctly and that there are no holes of tears on the filter. If you do find a hole of tear on the filter, replace it before using. A standard cartridge filter or cloth filter is fine for most general pick up applications. If you are picking up fine dust like cold ashes or drywall dust, you will need a fine dust or HEPA cartridge filter. For some models collection bag can be used in combination with the cartridge filter to capture finer particles of debris.
