Did the nozzle of your Philips Sonicare AirFloss get stuck? Remove the nozzle from your AirFloss handle and find out how to prevent this from happening again.

The AirFloss nozzle got stuck

Use these steps to remove the nozzle from the handle and solve this issue:

  1. Grab the nozzle. You can use a paper towel or cloth for better grip
  2. You can use the nozzle tip for leverage, but do not bend or twist the nozzle tip
  3. Pull the nozzle straight out from the AirFloss handle. Do not bend or twist the nozzle while pulling
  4. Once the nozzle has been removed, re-attach and remove the nozzle a few more (4-5) times to solve the issue

Use pliers if the nozzle is bent or broken and still not coming off the AirFloss handle.
