The vacuum system of my Philips beard trimmer does not work

The vacuum system absorbs cut hairs when you use the appliance. It is activated automatically as soon as you switch on the appliance. The vacuum system cannot be turned off, so if it performs poorly or not at all, please follow the instructions below.

The hair collection chamber is full

  • Empty the hair-collection chamber after each trimming session. Empty the hair-collection chamber by carefully shaking or blowing hair out and/or by brushing the hair out with the brush supplied.
  • When trimming long, dense beards, it may be necessary to empty the hair-collection chamber during the trimming session in order to maintain optimal suction performance.
  • Do not cut off more than approximately 7mm of your overall beard length at a time. This ensures optimal functioning of the vacuum system. If you want to cut your beard shorter, repeat the process one or more times.

The flexible hair guide is jammed

Verify that the flexible hair guide is not jammed in any way. The flexible hair guide follows the contours of the face and directs cut hairs towards the nozzle of the vacuum mechanism.

The air slots are covered

Verify that the air slots on the appliance are not covered. This will result in a decrease in motor performance.

The trimmer is not used correctly

  • Make sure you move the trimmer against the direction of hair growth
  • Make smooth and gentle strokes
