Hoover - Red Light Dirt Sensor

\015 Dirt Sensor Light stays red continuously on my Hoover U6433-900 Wind-Tunnel Upright Vac.\015\012\015\012I checked for a sensor light/beam in vacuumed air path that might have gotten covered over with dirt particles - but could not find one. \015\012\015\012Not sure what other kind of sensor technology they may be using or where else to look for a sensor.\015

Answers :

Check to make sure the settings didn't get inadvertently switched to the hi position, move the switch back and forth from high to reg a few times, then leave it on reg.

remove and hand wash the primary filter and secondary filter, dry throughly and replace them in the vacuum.

if none of this works, you will need to have the vacuum serviced, or if it is still working, just don't pay attention to the dirt-finder. the dirt sensor on your vacuum is located in the suction tube and is generally not accessible enough to clean without taking the vacuum apart.

hope this helps,

Try cleaning the dirt sensor and clean the inside of the tube that goes into the bag with a damp cloth.It wont hurt anything it will continue to work

Dirt finder I have a Hoover U6439-900.  After the cleaner was used a few times, the dirt finder light cycles between green and red on the regular setting and will not go to green.  On the sensitive setting, the red light stays on most of the time.  I have tried to run the cleaner to remove any dirt but have not solved the problem.
