Having problems with your Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 Windtunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Red light stays on

\015 I have the hoover model that has a red and green light feature, normally after vacumning a few minutes the red turns to green meaning the carpet is clean, however the red light continues to stay on, what could be the problem? I know my carpet is not that dirty!!\015

Answers :

It sounds like the plates inside the vacuum that detect the dirt have become dirty. I don't remember where they are, but I think they're accessible if you remove a certain hose. Again, I don't know which hose it is.
Take the cleaner to a hoover repair shop. The unit carries a 3 year warranty. There is a board (repair part) that goes inside the unit and they need to order you a new one. These machines have had this problem. They just ordered the part for my unit and should have it installed by next week.

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.

My Reliable T730A Canister Steam Vacuum is not working. The red (empty) light stays on even though its full and it doesn't produce any steam. I doubt that the water is getting down into the heating chamber. How easy is it to take apart and clean or can I just blow compressed air through it? Any help most appreciated. Steve [email protected]


You can probably just blow it out with the air compressor. If you have a air pressure regulator on the air compressor then I would turn it down to about 30-40 psi. Then try to blow out the line. ... Reliable T730A Canister Steam Vacuum
