Do I need a new post-motor filter?
« on: September 17, 2011, 11:23:00 PM »
Had a DC07 for many many years and cleaned the filters twice a month (trust me it needs it in my house :'(, 6 people, 2 very messy dogs and a cat. :offtopic: ) and I've noticed it smells like old people/burning so I took out the post-motor filter and its black and very dusty  :underchair: so do I need a new one or will this do for another couple of months?
DC07 finally died! Replaced with a DC14 which is better than the DC07 ever was.

Is this a pad or a HEPA filter?

You can wash it out, and put it to dry for 24 hours.  :thumbsup:
