How to Assemble your Eureka Airspeed Vacuum Cleaner

First, unpack your vacuum and identify the parts, which are listed on the owner's manual. The videos in this hubpage will also help to identify the parts for you.

  • Begin assembly, by removing the dust cup from the vacuum cleaner. Push the handle down onto the vacuum. On the back of the vacuum, slide the carry handle onto the back of the handle. It should snap into place.
  • Next, insert the turbo nozzle holder. Ensure that the dial on the turbo nozzle holder is turned vertically to the unlocked position. Insert the tab of the turbo nozzle holder into the front of the handle. Rotate it down and snap it into place. Turn the knob to the right to lock.
  • Place the lower hose retainer onto the back of the vacuum. Push it down past the rib to lock it into place. Place the upper hose retainer on the back of the handle, under the loop grip. Push it up to snap it into place.
  • To install the hose connector, align the tab at the right side of the connector and snap it into place on the left. Pull out the bottom nose of the hose retainer and position the hose on the vacuum. Place the hose over the upper retainer.
  • Push wand one onto the end of the hose. Slide wand two over wand one. Place the end of the wand over the hook on the back of the vacuum. Secure the wand into the side carry handle. Push the cord into the hooks on the side and upper carry handle. Wrap the cord on the cleaner.
  • Place the crevice tool and dusting brush in their holders on the carry handle. Place the turbo nozzle in the turbo nozzle holder on the front of the vacuum. Finally, place the dust cup into the front of the vacuum and rotate it into position until the latch catches.

How to Identify the Parts of your Eureka Airspeed Vacuum Cleaner

These are the main parts to know when maintaining your Eureka Airspeed vacuum cleaner: filter, screen, exhaust filter, brush roll, & belt. To the right, you will see a diagram which shows where these parts are located on your vacuum.

Why is it important to change your Eureka air filters regularly?

The air filters control the air speed of your vacuum. Therefore, you should maintain them regularly. If you have noticed a difference in suction, then check the filters as they may be dirty or clogged. Ignoring this problem could cause your vacuum to overheat! When should you replace your filters? Eureka recommends that you replace the filters every six months for optimal performance.

How to Change a Filter on a Eureka AirSpeed Vacuum Cleaner

  • DCF21 air filter - Lift up on the latch of the dust cup and set it in front of you on the floor. Pull down on the yellow tab which is located on the top of the cup. The top will pop open so that you can twist or remove your old filter. Replace it with your new filter and twist it into place. Next, align the notch on the front and snap the top into place with the yellow tab.
  • EF6 air filter - First, remove the filter cover and then simply pull out the old filter. Replace it with your new filter. Then, snap the cover back into place. Then, place the dust cup back onto your vacuum. It's that simple!
