Hello,

This is a pretty clear indication that your filter is clogged and needs to be replaced. HEPA filters are different then say pre-motor filters, or sponge filters. Because they are usually the last filter before the air is exhausted, it's usually catching very tiny microscopic particles. Because of this, trying to determine if the filter is dirty or clogged can be difficult, if not impossible on HEPA pleated exhaust filters.

The fact that your filters continues popping out, indicates that the air is not being able to pass through the filter as it's supposed to, and is instead the air is having to try and find a different way to escape, causing the force of the back up of air to blow the filter out.

I think if you replace this filter, it should fix the problem completely. Because this filter is designed to capture microscopic particles rather then large particles, washing this filter, or getting it wet is not advised, and wouldn't be an effective way to clean it. You really will need to replace the filter soon, but if you'd like to try and prolong the life of your filter, you may use an air compressor, and blow from the top of the filter (the area that looks clean), and clear the microscopic particles, and dust out of the filter this way. If you suffer from breathing issues, asthma, or allergies, I would highly advise against doing this without a mask on. The dust that will come out is extremely fine dust that can cause people with the above conditions to suffer greatly. Doing this outdoors is highly recommended.

An air compressor can certainly prolong the life of HEPA filters, but again, sooner or later you'll need to replace the filter.

This is usually caused by a belt being too tight or the wrong size. It can also be caused by something wrapped around the brush (like loose thread from a rug or yarn, shoestring etc. Try inspecting the brush and belt.

You should not try this on your own. Take it to an authorized Hoover warranty repair center near you. This is not an easy job and is usually not worth the expense if the machine is out of warranty anyway. If it's within the warranty period, warranty will cover it. My shop is a Hoover warranty center and we have replaced a lot of these.

Hey there! It's possible that you may still have a clog in your vacuum somewhere. The filters can also cause the vacuum to lose suction. Try these steps to restore suction to your cleaner.

1. Remove the dirt cup canister from the vacuum. Remove the dirt cup lid.
2. Remove the primary foam filter. Rinse the filter under running water until it runs clear. Allow 24 hours to air dry outside of the vacuum.
3. Slide the Hepa filter out. Tap the filter against the trash can until dirt stops falling. Replace the Hepa filter. (Do not wash) Filters should be replaced once a year.
4. Remove the hose from both ends. Use a broom stick to gently loosen and clear any clogs from hose.
5. Remove the bottom plate and brushroll. Use a wooden spoon or something similar to loosen and remove any clogs from the lower hose.

6. Check that the brushes are still spinning. If not, replace the belt.
Hope this helps!

Okay. I read these posts and decided to take the advice of checking the hose.
I had cleaned all filters, checked all hose (as-is) and did belt checks, etc.
The indicator was always showing red and it would shut down after about 5 minutes.
It ended up being a clog that I discovered after taking the hose completely off and seeing a clump right where the hose detaches. I began swinging the hose round and round and sure enough, more cat hair clumpls shot out. Big clumps.
So, you literally need to check every inch of hose to find the culprit.
After that, my indicator stayed green and it works like a charm.
Best wishes, Mike D

Since you felt the need to ask this question, you are obviously not qualified for this level of repair. Take it to your local vac repair shop. If you have had your machine for less than 1 year it is still under warranty. If it is over 1 year old it is probably not worth fixing. New Hoovers are designed to last only one year and toss them ( as are most all bagless vacs for that matter ).

It sounds like your hose is stopped up. This is a common problem with bagless machines. It's a good idea to buy a bag type vacuum cleaner when this one quits. Most of these chinese made , bagless cleaners only last one year and don't perform very well either. They stop up easily because of poor suction and poor design.
