Shark ION™ P50 Powered Lift-Away® Cordless Upright Vacuum
For optimal performance, the dust cup should be emptied each time you vacuum and periodically during cleaning, when the dust cup appears full.
- Pre-Motor Foam and Felt Filters: Under normal usage, rinse and let air-dry completely (for at least 24 hours) once a month.
- Post-Motor Filter (HEPA Filter): Under normal usage, rinse and air-dry completely (for at least 24 hours) once every 12 months or as needed.
The pre-motor filters are located on the right side of the vacuum pod. Slide down the filter door release button and lift off the filter door. Remove filter from pod by pulling on the Pull tabs on the filter frame. Pull foam filter off the filter frame to separate the foam and felt filters. Rinse both filters with lukewarm water until the water runs clear. DO NOT use soap. Let filters air-dry completely (at least 24 hours) before reinstalling. DO NOT place filters in the dishwasher or washing machine.
Once completely dry, slide the foam filter back onto the filter frame. While holding the tabs on the filter frame, slide the filter back into the pod to secure in place (you will not hear a click). Reinsert the bottom of the filter door into slots on the pod and press door into place until you hear a click.
The post-motor (HEPA) filter is located on the left side of the vacuum pod, next to the battery. Pull up on the HEPA filter to remove. Note that there is a tight seal around the HEPA filter and some force may be required to remove the filter from the pod.
Rinse the filter with lukewarm water until the water runs clear. DO NOT use soap. DO NOT scrub HEPA filter. Let filter air-dry completely (at least 24 hours) before reinstalling. DO NOT place filter in the dishwasher or washing machine.
Once completely dry, reinsert the HEPA filter and press down until it clicks into place.
