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

Dirt finder sensor stopped working

\015 I have a hoover modeU6439900 that has a dirt finder green and red light. I am sure that this is controlled by some type of sensor. My question is where is this sensor located? I beleive that it needs to be cleaned off or replaces as the red light stays on all the time now. It was working well up untill a month ago. Can you help me with the location and or replacement?\015

Answers :

I had the same problem with a hoover windtunnel 6200 - u5477-900. I removed the flexible hose from top of the plastic tube running vertically along the right side of the back of the vacuum. When I used a flashlight to look into the plastic tube, I could see a clog at the bottom, where the flexible hose curved frontwards towards the brushes. I then removed the 2 screws holding the vertical plastic tube to the vacuum. When I disconnected the plastic tube from the flexible hose at the bottom, I found a clog of dirt and dog hair. After removing the clog and reassembling, the clean / dirty light now moves back and forth from red to green.
The sensor is located inside where the hose hooks on the back of the vacuum. Unhook the hose, looking down the duct, the will see a disk near where it curves to go into the vac. Clean that out, if it still stays on, It is called the EDF duct/mic asm. part # 47823004. The cable for it routes thru to the circ. board that is by the light. The circ. board number is 46851031. Also make sure that you don't have a clog in the hose or the inlet by the brush motor.
