My Philips Sonicare AirFloss makes a whistling sound
Published on 11 September 2023
If your Sonicare AirFloss makes a whistling sound, the troubleshooting tips below may help you find a solution.
We recommend you follow the steps in the order listed below. In between steps, check to see if the issue is resolved before moving to the next.
- On the back of your AirFloss is a small air vent in the reservoir hatch. If the air vent is clogged, it will reduce the water flow. A clogged air vent is causing a whistling sound.
To clean the vent, follow the steps below:
- Take a damp/moist paper towel or cotton swab.
- Wipe along the inside edge of the reservoir door opening, especially on the top area.
- Rinse well with cold tap water and ensure no debris/dust is left.
- It could also mean that the nozzle is worn. We recommend replacing the nozzle every three months. You can purchase a new nozzle in our online store.
- If none of these tips help, your AirFloss may be damaged internally. We recommend that you request a repair or exchange for your AirFloss.
