The red filter light will not reset after replacing the filter on my Miele S5980

\015 I have replaced the hepa filter in my MieleS 5980 vacuum but the red filter warning light will not rest when the reset button is pressed\015

Answers :

Hi There, I actually did a repair on this problem only a couple of weeks ago. The problem could be that the small lever that pushes on the reset button on the circuit board is bent or broken. The little button costs about $10 from memory and certainly a whole lot cheaper than the board itself which is $234. Just to clarify in my case there was nothing wrong with the board, I was able to manually push the reset switch on the board and replace the tiny lever and problem was solved.

I have a Miele S5980 vacuum cleaner, and recently had to change the Hepa filter. After doing the change, I tried resetting the reset button to switch off the Hepa filter indication light and it would not switch off. After a few tries, I accidentally depressed the switch, and it has dislodged from its cradle. Help, what can I do to fix this?

I was vacuuming and noticed that the bag needed changing. the red light with the ! inside the triangle also came on. When the bag was changed, the vacuum would not restart. The red light came on. Tried the reset button but nothing happened. Tried unplugging and re-plugging in and nothing happened. Replaced all the filters and still it wouldh't start. So I brought it downstairs and tried one more time to get it to start. it worked! Is there something wrong with the vacuum cleaner? Was it overheat

I Have two questions concerning my AIRVAC AV2500 Red Series Vacuum System. How do you replace the light in the floor power head sweeper and can you replace the permanent fabric filter? We had the system installed in 2004 and the light in the sweeper head just went out and can not find any manual on line on how to replace it. The filter if not torn but avter 6 years it probably needs some kine of cleaning or replaced even though it says permanent. Any help would be appreciated. Jim McCluskey

I have just purchased two (2) Electrolux Nimble vacuum cleaners. Not one, but both, straight out of the box, the beater bars will not run. It turns on, select carpet, and lower the handle, the red light to check beater bar/or filter lights up. You can reset the light by unplugging the unit, then plugging it back in, but with same results. Now the kicker, if you take out the handle, select carpet, lower the body by the carry handle, it will run and operate correctly, however, as soon as you r

Silvermoon overheated and shut down. we've waited for it to cool down. When attempting to start the sweeper the red caution light (red triangle with exclamation mark comes on) but sweeper does not turn on. There are no obstructions in the hose or sweeper bag. There is a reset button. I pushed that but still no luck. Is there a fuse or something that needs to be replaced?

Does the hoover runabout u427-930 have a filter? I replaced the belt and next to the light bulb was a square gray mat that looked like a filter covering a screen full of holes that looked like the motor was behind. I think it was a mat of cat hair so I took it off and threw it away; I just want to make sure that it wasn't a filter that I need to replace.


From doing a search on the internet and hoovers website it looks as if this unit does not have a filter. Such as a hepa that needs to be replaced or that is washable. So i think you are safe and dont need to worry about it. ... Hoover Elite U5061-900 Bagged Upright Vacuum

The red replace bag came on so i replaced the bag when i turn it on again the red light is still on


Make sure you have the bag on tightly. Also...before you replace the bag, check and see that there is no dust remaining in the tube going to the bag. It could be clogged and blocking the sensor to the red light; which is keeping it on.Good Luck ... Hoover Vacuums
