Troubleshooting

What should I do when the vacuum cleaner becomes very warm?

Possible cause

  • The motor of the vacuum cleaner produces heat when it operates. This is common
  • When the vacuum cleaner is clogged up, it may produce more heat than normal. In that case, the vacuum cleaner's cleaning performance is also lower than usual. Please check if the dustbag/bucket is full or one of the filters is dirty that may cause your vacuum cleaner to be clogged up
  • If the vacuum cleaner continues to become very hot during use, stop using the appliance and contact the Philips Consumer Care in your country

Below you find out how to check if your vacuum cleaner is clogged up.

  2. Make sure the exhaust filter is clean
  3. Make sure the dustbag is not full.
  4. If you have made sure the filters are clean and the dustbag is not full, but the cleaning performance remains poor and the vacuum cleaner continues to become very hot, replace the dustbag, for in that case the pores of the dustbag may be clogged with fine dust.
