How the dustbag change indicator
The indicator is designed to show when
the bag is full and works by measuring
the air permeability of the dustbag.
Normal household dust is a mixture of
dust, hair, carpet fluff, threads, grit etc.
However, if fine dust, such as plaster,
brick dust, cement or flour is vacuumed
the pores of the dustbag will become
blocked. The marker will indicate that
the bag is "full" even when it is not. In
this instance the dustbag must be
changed as suction power is reduced
when the pores of the dustbag are
If a large quantity of hair, wool or carpet
fluff is vacuumed, the dustbag change
indicator may not register "full" even
though the bag is full. This is because
the air permeability of the dustbag may
still be high enough not to activate the
marker to show maximum. The dustbag
should still be changed.
