KNOW YOUR KENMORE

It has been a recognized fact that the ideal cleaning equipment for a home consisted of two vacuum cleaners -an upright cleaner for combing and brushing rugs and carpeting, and a canister for above the floor cleaning where powerful suction is required.

The Power Mate is only 4" high and it glides easily under low furniture. Its 2-wheel suspension glides from rugs to bare floors to completely clean your rooms, making this truly the most versatile cleaner on the market.

The low design of the nozzles makes it easy to clean under furniture and beds-just give hand grip one-half twist. For greatest suction, Rug Nozzle should lie flat on floor.

PUTTING YOUR KENMORE TO WORK

1 Insert dust bag-a paper bag must be in place when cleaner is in use (See instruction below).

2 Insert hose-push button on short end of the hose and insert the hose into the suction opening. To remove, reverse this procedure.

3 Connect wand to hand grip by depressing button in hand grip of hose, lining up button with opening in wand. Button will snap into place when secured. To disconnect, reverse procedure using twisting action.

DISPOSABLE PAPER BAGS

To open cover, pull knob out and lift.

Place elastic opening on bag directly under and touching tube opening. Pull bag up and onto the tube as far as possible. To remove dust bag, carefully pull off and discard. After bag is in place open pleats of bag paying particular attention to comers on both sides of opening so that bag will fill completely. Close hood, being careful not to catch the bag between the hood and the base.

For best performance, remove paper bag before it becomes packed. Remember to attach a fresh bag so your Kenmore will be ready for use when needed. Additional disposable bags (No. 4007) may be ordered from any Sears or Simpsons-Sears retail or mail order store.

PUTTING YOUR KENMORE TO WORK

4 Connect wands. For ad-

ditional length, connect I the second wand to the first wand in the same manner as outlined in Step 3.

5 Connect attachment-

Insert tapered end of wand into attachment until secure. To disconnect, reverse procedure.

6 Start motor. Plug cord into wall outlet. Turn on switch and start cleaning.

SUCTION

When using suction cleaning tools, insert hose into opening in front of cleaner. Button lock on hose will hold hose securely. The adjustable suction control knob, below hand grip, reduces suction for cleaning draperies, throw rugs, etc. When suction control knob is closed, nozzle receives full suction power; power is reduced as control is opened.

Lady Kenmore owners may achieve infinite suction variance using their 2 speed motor, in conjunction with the suction control knob.

BLOWING

Your Lady Kenmore, Horizon, Saturn, and Aurora have new and improved diffusion for quieter operation. When cleaning radiators, mothproofing closets, etc., remove diffuser plug (pictured at right) and insert short end of hose into opening at bottom of cleaner. Be sure to clean inside of the hose before blowing by connecting short end of hose to blower opening and insert hand grip into suction opening. Run motor a few minutes.
Page 14:

ADAPTABILITY AND STORAGE

A comfortable handle is provided so that you may carry this cleaner to any part of your home, even to the garage for cleaning the automobile.

Your Kenmore Vacuum Cleaner may be set on end. This makes the cleaning of stairs especially convenient.

Even the models with wands and attachments stored on the cleaner can be stored in a minimum amount of space.

Because this cleaner is so compact, storage possibilities are unlimited. It may be stored in a small closet, on a shelf, or even under the bed.
Page 15:

LITTLE CARE NEEDED

Your Kenmore will require very little care and attention. If you will remember to replace the dust bag frequently, your Cleaner will operate efficiently for years to come. You will find it beneficial to wash the brush attachments occasionally so they are always clean and ready for use when needed.

Hair pins, paper clips, toothpicks, etc., may become lodged in the hose, obstructing passage of dust. This reduces suction and may cause motor to overload. Use a stiff wire to remove these obstructions. (See Blowing.)

The filter should be lifted off periodically and dusted with a brush or vacuumed. Be sure to replace filter immediately.

Be sure diffuser ( See Blowing page 11) is always in place when using for suction cleaning.
