Troubleshooting

My Philips vacuum cleaner gets hot

When your Philips vacuum seems to get too hot, please see below for how this works.

Normal motor heat transfers to the rest of the vacuum

The vacuum motor produces heat when it operates. This heat can be felt when touching the vacuum or from the exhaust air. Do not worry; this is normal.

The vacuum is clogged up

When your Philips vacuum cleaner is clogged up, it may produce more heat than normal. In this case, the vacuum cleaner's cleaning performance is also lower than usual.

How to check if your vacuum cleaner is clogged up:

Bagless vacuum cleaner:

  1. Make sure the dust bucket is empty.
  2. Make sure the motor protection filter is clean
  3. Make sure the exhaust filter is clean

Bag vacuum cleaner:

  1. Make sure the motor protection filter is clean
  2. Make sure the exhaust filter is clean
  3. Make sure the dust bag is not full
  4. If you have made sure that 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 as the pores of the dustbag may be clogged with fine dust

If your Philips vacuum continues to become very hot during use after following the above steps, stop using it and contact us.
