Very comprehensive document which is a must-have for any Satellit 2100 owner whose set up is somewhat intricate. Due to the bad quality of the pictures that are rather dark and a bit blurred I gave 4-star feedback.
The manual was missing 2 pages but when I presented the problem to the company they made every attempt to get the 2 pages to me, when they couldn't they refunded my money. A very pleasing and easy transaction. The manual they provided was the original, it was concise and to the point. I plan to do business with this company again when should the need arise.
The owners manual is very good. all my how to questions were answered in detail.

Optional accessories for the central vacuum cleaner are available through your local dealership.
When using an electrical appliance, basic precautions should always be followed, including the following:
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING THIS VACUUM CLEANER
HOW TO MAINTAIN THE CENTRAL VACUUM CLEANER
The instructions given in this booklet serve as a guide to routine maintenance. Proper airflow or suction can be maintained by keeping the filters clean and the hose and the plastic pipe free from clogs. Check the Trouble Shooting section in this booklet for suggestions before calling for service.
DANGER - Always unplug power unit from the electrical outlet before servicing and cleaning.
Empty the Dirt Bucket (ZCV782, ZCV783, ZCV784)
The ZCV782 is equipped with a self-cleaning cloth filter. The dirt and debris is collected in the detachable dirt bucket. Models which do not use a paper bag must have the dirt removed from the dirt bucket. Release the clamps or turn the bucket to the left. Remove and empty the contents. Brush the filter while the bucket is off the power unit. Return the bucket to the power unit and secure. Be sure the bucket is securely attached to avoid any suction leakage.
WARNING - To reduce the risk of burns, fire, electric shock, or injury to persons: 1. Keep cord away from heated surfaces. 2. Do not allow to be used as a toy. Close supervision is necessary when this vacuum is used by or near children. 3. Use this vacuum only for its intended use as described in this manual. (Use of attachments not recommended by the manufacturer may cause fire, electric shock, or injury.) 4. Never operate this vacuum if it has a damaged cord or plug, if it is not working properly, if it has been dropped or damaged. Return to service center or have service person examine and repair. 5. Do not pull or carry this power unit by supply cord, use cord as a handle, close a door on cord, or pull cord around sharp edges or corners. 6. Never disconnect plug by pulling on cord. To disconnect from outlet, grasp the plug, not the cord. 7. Do not put any object into openings. Do not use with any opening blocked; keep free of dust, lint, hair, and anything that may reduce air flow. 8. Keep hair, face, fingers, all body parts, and loose clothing away from any openings (and revolving brush and nozzle). 9. Do not pick up cigarettes, live hot ashes, matches, or similar materials. 10. Never operate vacuum without dust bag and/or filter in place. 11. To disconnect, turn all controls to the OFF position; then remove plug from outlet. 12. Never handle plug, cord, or power unit with wet hands. 13. Electric shock could occur if used on wet surfaces. 14. Use extra care when cleaning on stairs. 15. Do not use to pick up flammable or combustible liquids such as gasoline, or use in areas where they may be present. 16. â€śConnect to a properly grounded outlet only. See grounding instruction.â€ť
Replace Paperbag Filter (ZCV781)
The ZCV781 is equipped with a paperbag filter. The paperbag filter will collect the dirt and debris inside the bag. The paperbag filter is located in the top end of the power unit. To remove the paperbag filter, detach the lid of the power unit by twisting it and removing it. The paperbag can be taken off and disposed of. A new filter paperbag is put in place and the lid securely attached again with a twist movement. Be sure the paperbag and the lid are securely attached to avoid any suction and dirt leakage.
Filter and Disposable Paper Bag
Reduced airflow or suction indicates the central vacuum cleaner is not operating at maximum efficiency. If the disposable paper bag is full or a filter is clogged, no air can pass through the unit and no cleaning will take place. Remove and dispose of the paper bag.
Do not operate this unit without all filters in place. Optional
DISPOSABLE PAPER FILTER BAG WITH CLOTH FILTER (cannot be used with dual intake/intake-utility installations)
NOTE: Disconnect power cord from electrical outlet before cleaning the filter.
The elbow with the paper bag adapter must be installed, in the body facing downward as shown for the paper bag. 1. 2. 3. Using pipe clamp, attach 90Âº sweep with bag adapter to 45Âº intake fitting as shown. Can only be used with single intake installations. Hold the bag collar with fingertips and align the bumps on the adapter with the bump cutouts in the collar. Insert adapter and push the bag collar all the way up to the lip on the elbow.
