3  Emptying a Platinum Series Central Vacuum Power Unit

Bagged Platinum Series

The debris bucket is the removable lower section of 
the power unit. The Platinum Series central vacuums 
contain a Model VMP600 slide-gate collar dust bag that 
is installed inside the debris bucket. The debris level in 
the dust bag is indicated by the front panel display of the 
vacuum. The dust bag should be replaced when the red 
bars of the bag level indicator light (bag full). Regular dust 
bag replacement will enhance performance and conform 
to the terms of the product warranty. The dust bag inside 
the debris bucket should be replaced fi ve to six times a 
year under normal use.
The Platinum Series vacuums contain a self-cleaning 
inverted cloth fi lter. When the power unit is running, 
the cloth fi lter is pulled upward inside the vacuum body. 
When the power unit is turned off, the weighted center of 
the fi lter causes it to drop, depositing dirt and dust past 
the dust cone and into the debris bucket. It is normal to 
see some accumulation of dirt on the fi lter. 

The inverted 

cloth fi lter should not be removed for any reason 
except to replace it if it becomes damaged or torn.

To replace the dust bag, follow these easy steps:

Make sure the power unit is disconnected from the 
electrical wall outlet.

Swing the two bucket slide latches down to lower the 
debris bucket.

Remove the debris bucket from the slide latch hangers.

Remove the dust bag from the debris bucket and pull 
on the bag’s slide-gate to seal the bag.

Dispose of the dust bag in a refuse container.

Use your hand to expand the bag of a new VMP600 
dust bag and place it into the debris bucket.

Reach into the dust bag again and expand the bag 
against the sides of the debris bucket.

Reattach the debris bucket on to the slide latch hangers.

Swing the two bucket slide latches up to raise and 
seat the debris bucket.

10 

Reconnect the power unit to the electrical wall outlet.

11 

Press the RESET button for seven seconds to reset 
the bag indicator.

4  Emptying a Red Series Central Vacuum Power Unit

Bagless Red Series

The debris bucket is the removable lower section of 
the power unit. The debris bucket is semi-transparent, 
the dirt level can be seen through its sides. The debris 
bucket in the Red Series central vacuum must be 
checked periodically and emptied when it becomes 3/4 
full. Regular emptying will enhance performance and 
conform to the terms of the product warranty. Dirt and 
debris are deposited in the debris bucket and it should be 
emptied fi ve to six times a year under normal use.

The Red Series bagless vacuums contain a self-cleaning 
inverted cloth fi lter. When the power unit is running, the 
cloth fi lter is pulled upward inside the vacuum body. 
When the power unit is turned off, the weighted center 
of the fi lter causes it to drop, depositing dirt and dust into 
the debris bucket. It is normal to see some accumulation 
of dirt on the fi lter. 

The inverted cloth fi lter should not 

be removed for any reason except to replace it if it 
becomes damaged or torn.

To empty the debris bucket, follow these easy steps:

Make sure the power unit is disconnected from the 
electrical wall outlet.

Swing the two bucket slide latches down to lower the 
debris bucket.

Remove the debris bucket from the slide latch hangers 
and empty the bucket into a refuse container.

Reattach the debris bucket on to the slide latch hangers.

Swing the two bucket slide latches up to raise and 
seat the debris bucket.

Reconnect the power unit to the electrical wall outlet.

5 Troubleshooting

IF THE MOTOR FAILS TO OPERATE

Be sure the power unit is plugged into a working AC outlet.

Push circuit breaker reset button on the power unit.

Check the panel circuit breaker that connects the power unit. If the breaker has tripped, reset it. If the breaker 
trips again, call your AirVac dealer for service.

AFTER CHANGING OF THE BAG (PLATINUM SERIES ONLY)

Push down the RESET button for seven seconds to reset the bag indicator.

IN CASE OF LOW VACUUM POWER

Be sure that the inlet plug is inserted into the unused power unit intake port.

Check that all wall valves are closed.

Check that all gaskets on wall valves are sealed.

Check to see if debris bucket or bag (Platinum Series only) needs emptying.

Check for obstructions in the hose, tools, or vacuum lines.

Check for any ruptures or breaks in the vacuum duct system.

If you encounter any problems with your equipment, verify the operation against the information contained in these 
instructions. If, after checking your system you are unable to determine the cause of the problem, contact your local 
AirVac dealer for assistance or call our Technical Services department at (800) 421-1587. Be sure to have the exact 
model number, serial number, and the nature of the problem ready. If possible, 

CALL FROM THE SITE.

 We cannot 

effectively troubleshoot your system if you are not calling from the location where the equipment is installed or used.

HOMEOWNER’S INSTRUCTIONS

For Platinum and Red Series AirVac Units

(for Household Use Only)

IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTES

Please read the instructions carefully! Through many years of continuous use -- and through quality tests that are 
ongoing at our factory -- AirVac central vacuums, attachments and accessories have built a remarkable record 
for cleaning effectiveness and safety.  However, there are potential hazards that could occur if the system is not 
installed and operated correctly and safely. 

READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING THIS APPLIANCE.

THE FOLLOWING FORMATS ARE USED FOR SAFETY NOTES IN THESE INSTRUCTIONS.

1  Central Vacuum Accessories

Many accessory packages and tool kits are available for AirVac central vacuums. Refer to the packages below and 
contact your local AirVac central vacuum dealer for these and additional central vacuum components.

2  Platinum Series Service Indicators

Bag Indicator

The Platinum Series central vacuums have an indicator on the control panel to display the approximate debris level 
of the vacuum’s replaceable dust bag. The green, yellow, orange, and red indicators will light, showing the bag 
debris level. The bag indicator displays the dust bag level whether the vacuum power is on or off.

NOTE: 

The debris level indicator light is meant to provide an approximation of the actual level in the dust bag. In a 

heavy use environment, (i.e. pet hair or new carpet fuzz) the bag may fi ll before the indicator reads full.

Service Indicator

The Platinum Series central vacuums have an indicator on the control panel to display the status of the vacuum’s 
motor and when the motor will require service. The service indicator displays the motor status whether the vacuum 
power is on or off.
