Is there any difference between GN Hyclean and FJM Hyclean bags?  :grinn:
They look the same apart from the color.

Hi, the FJM's are for the older series of machines ie S512.  I have not purchased FJM bags in ages so someone correct me if I'm wrong but the FJM bags are smaller from memory.
I think the compartment dimensions are different and there may be reduced airflow as the bag gets full.

Personally I just get boxes of 16 GN bags at a time and can use them in my S512 and my newer S5. The fitting is the same for FJM, GN and U Bags.

Cheers.

I'm really not sure about bags efficiency. My bag seem to have a little hole even though I didn't vacuum any sharp objects. Cats' hair also stick out all over the bag. It seems like the dirt was escaping through that little hole cause it's not as clean as it was in the dust compartment.

Do you guys think that I should bin this bag?

Gee thats not something I've seen before. I think it could be a manufacturing defect as I suck up bits of copper wire all the time from around my electronic repair area and have never had a problem.

"Me" I would either try to seal up the hole with a bit of hot glue or silicone by pushing a bit in and making a plug from the inside or use it a bit more and see if it block up itself. Continuing to use if it's constantly leaking may not be the best for the motor. This is just my opinion.


Cheers.

Can you guys actually imagine that the same thing is about to happen with another bag but this time it looks like there are going to be two holes.
It's just ridiculous.
Does it mean that bags have worse quality when they're in sale?
