What You Will Need:
Step 1 - Splitting the Vacuum
The cleaner will have two clips on either side - pull these out, this will then allow you to lift the head assembly of the Henry off.
Step 2 - Taking out the Filter
Simply, remove the pre-motor filter, you don’t need to fiddle about with this, you can just pull it out.
Step 3 - Removing and Replacing the Bag
You should now see the old, full bag. Remove this and discard it, you can take the new, empty bag and fit it in place. When fitting the new bag make sure you pull the bag as close to the inner vacuum wall - this will help with the performance.
Step 4 - Assembling the Cleaner
Once in place, place the filter back over the top of the bag and lower the head assembly onto the body. When in the correct location - push the clips back in and this will lock the head and body assemblies together.
There you go! You’ve just replaced an old filled bag with a new one. You should now notice a vast difference in suction power and performance. If you hadn’t done so already we also do recommend purchasing a 3 layer hepa-flo filter bag. You’ll be able to keep your home cleaner for longer.
