My Philips Wet Vacuum Cleaner releases less water than usual

If your Philips Wet Vacuum Cleaner releases less water than usual, this can have several causes. Find out possible causes and solutions in the following lines.

The microfiber pad is not placed correctly

The microfiber pad of your Philips Wet Vacuum Cleaner covers the strip and blocks the water flow from the strip. If the microfiber pad is not placed on the strip correctly, the device may release less water than usual. In this case, please follow the steps below:
  1. Make sure that the Velcro strips on the mop and the Velcro strips on the water tank are perfectly aligned.
  2. Also make sure the striped side of the mop is facing outwards, away from the bottom of the water tank.

The wetting strip is blocked by excessive residue

  1. Remove the wetting strip. Rinse it thoroughly and rub it with a dry cloth.
  2. You can also let the strip soak overnight in a solution of 1 part vinegar to 3 parts water. Rinse thoroughly after soaking and rub it with a dry cloth.
