This affects the air permeability of the
bag, and the marker will indicate that
the bag is "full" even when it is not. If
this happens you must still change the
dustbag because suction power will be
greatly reduced by blocked pores in the
If, on the other hand, a large amount of
hair and carpet fluff which typically con-
tains a lot of air is vacuumed up, the in-
dicator may fail to react even though
the bag is full. You should still change it.
Both these extremes can occur.
