The suction power of my Philips EasyLife vacuum cleaner is low

Published on 2019-02-18

If your Philips EasyLife Vacuum Cleaner's suction power is low, there might be an easy solution. Discover possible causes and solutions to this in the following lines.

The dust container is full and the filter cone is dirty

Empty the dust container of your Philips EasyLife Vacuum Cleaner and clean the filter cone. For optimal performance, empty the dust container and clean the filter cone (see the image below) when the dust container full indicator is switched on.

Emptying the dust container

The HEPA dust container filter and foam filter are dirty

To maintain optimal performance, clean the HEPA filter of your Philips EasyLife Vacuum Cleaner each time you empty the dust container. The HEPA dust container filter is attached to the dust container. The dust container foam filter is placed behind the HEPA dust container filter. Both filters can be rinsed under the tap. Let the filters dry completely before you put them back.

The HEPA filter

The HEPA exhaust filter is dirty and needs to be cleaned

The HEPA Exhaust filter of your Philips EasyLife Vacuum Cleaner needs to be cleaned every 6 months. If you clean the filter with water, you can rinse it under the tap up to 4 times before you have to replace it with a new Philips HEPA exhaust filter. The filter needs to be replaced every 2 years.

The HEPA exhaust filter can be found under the HEPA exhaust filter grille of you.

The motor protection filter is dirty

To maintain optimal performance, clean the motor protection filter of your Philips EasyLife Vacuum Cleaner at least once a year. The motor protection filter is located in a holder inside the dust container compartment. The filter can be cleaned by shaking it out over a dustbin.
