    How do I know if the dust bag in my Philips Vacuum is full?

    Published on 2021-07-04

    In most Philips Vacuum Cleaners, an indicator or light located just above the hose (where the hose connects to the vacuum) will let you know that the dust bag is full.

    Most of the times this indicator is orange, but on a few vacuum models it can be yellow or it can be a blue icon.

    If your vacuum does not have an indicator at all, then we recommend that you check your dust bag regularly.
