If the dirt container is full, empty If it is empty, check to make sure the filter and filter screen is not missing and make sure they are installed correctly into the debris bin cup (the filter locks inside the filter screen) (See pictures below) Is either filter missing? If so they will need to be ordered. Do not operate the machine without the filter and filter screen. It may damage the motor and void the warranty. Is the filter and filter screen dirty?
