Demo model still working strong

published

During a Godfreys sale was on search for another brand that sold out. Was shown this model but there was only the display model left. That was nearly 2 years ago. This lil' machine is still running as good as new. The 1800 Watt motor out performs the replaced 2400 Watt Hoover. Have only replaced a filter once in the time since then. Just tap the filter lightly after emptying the canister. Generous power cable makes maneuvering simple. Very pleased.

Cons - Plastics and attachments aren't as premium as they could be
Filters not as widely available in retail stores

Worst Hoover ever

published

When I initially purchased this Hoover it was fine but after a very short period of time, the suction became non-existent, we cleaner the filter as instructed and it was a little better but rapidly deteriorated and cleaning the filter again did not remedy the problem we went back to the shop and received a replacement and again that was fine for a few weeks but again there is no suction and we have a clean filter and empty Hoover, very disappointing.I am going to have buy a new Hoover agin, never never never will I buy Phillips!

Hi, is it possible to vacuum while holding the vacuum cleaner with one hand using the dust tray handle, without it falling apart? I need to vacuum on top of some clothes cabinets. Thanks!

Yes! As long as you don't press the 'eject'-button at the end of the tank whilst doing so you should be fine. :)

where is suction power regulator?

Dolores , there is no suction regulator on the Philips vac model FC 8472 ( and similar models FC 8470 - FC 8477 ) The slide on the hose near where you hold it only opens and closes for whatever reason I do not know , but , in doing so ( opening ) it does reduce suction . Hope this helps ... Edward , Gawler SA

Hi Dolores,
Good question! As Edward mentioned above, the regulator is usually located on the hose handle. You can use the sliding button to regulate the suction power.
