Red light for HIPPA filter won't go off

I have had my vaccum for about 3 months, noticed the red light was on and washed the HIPPA filter, washed the canister and let them dry for 3 days. Everything is back in place, but the red light will not go off.

    Same thing- disassembly yields no blockage; filter is new and still looks clean.

  • Anonymous Feb 02, 2009

    2 months after purchasing my vacuum, the same thing happened. I have had it professionally inspected (spending $50) and replaced the filter and belt, and still the red light is on. It has also lost suction. I will be taking it (a rather far distance away) to a certified specialist and hope to be given a brand new vacuum as a part of the warranty.

    I am having the same problem. Even with the dust canister pulled out the light stays on. I have replaced all the filters, and there is no blockage I can see, unless it is somethere inside which can't be seen even when the unit is disassembled.

Red light is sign of reduced suction due to a blokage of some sort. If you are sure the filter is thoroughly cleaned, check the hose, wand, and the nozzle connector for obstructions of any kind.

My vacuum was making a funny noise and had a bad smell


Hi John, it's Jack at Dyson.

Most Dyson vacuums include a thermal cutout which shuts the machine down for protection if it starts to overhead. You should find it will run again after it's cooled down for around 2 hours.

This is likely to have been caused by a blockage, or because the filter is overdue for a wash. To prevent this from happening again, please follow the steps shown in our Support guide: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc08/dc08-standard/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-won-t-switch-on-or-cuts-out/my-machine-cut-out-whilst-i-was-using-it/how-to-wash-filters/check-the-floor-tool

In normal use, the filter needs to be washed at least once every 3-6 months, as shown in the video attached. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 12 hours for both sections of the filter to dry completely before replacing it.

If you'd like some further help from our experts after you've given both of these steps a try, please call the Dyson customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 01-475-7109 (IE).

Flashing lights.


The Flashing lights indicate several different things. 1 flashing red light means its time to charge your unit. if it is still flashing after charging then you will more than likely need to change the battery. A flashing red and green light means that the unit is overheating which could happen if the filters need to be washed, or that there is a blockage or if your machine has been left in direct sunlight. Allow 1 hour for machine to cool down. 3 flashing lights indicated that the pre-filter has been put on incorrectly. I hope this helps. If you do decide to wash your filter dont use any type of soap it is not needed and allow fiter to dry for atleast 24 hours. putting a wet or damp filter in will damage your machine.

The filter gives red light.Does this mean the filter must be washed or changed. How should it be washed, what does ´´washable´´ mean here?


Red light normally denoted filter is blocked. If it is a washable filter then wash it. If it liiks like a paper type filter, replace it. Washing it will make it clog up even more.

I bought it in may , I can honestly say , it is THE worst vaccum


There are several filters on bag-less vacuums that need to be cleaned. Dig out your owners manual or open the one below. See section 3 for filters and maintenance. If you are vacuuming a house bigger than about 1500 square feet, you should be cleaning the filters every other use. Personally, after using a bagless for a couple of months, I went back to my bagged vacuum.

Hoover Light on


ALTHOUGH MOST FILTERS SAY WASHABLE THEY DO STILL NEED TO BE REPLACE AS WASHING THEM SHRINKS THE FILTER AND EVENTUALLY CLOSES THE AIRWAYS. WHICH ALSO IF NOT REPLACE WILL OVER HEAT MOTOR IN MACHINE AND CAUSE MOTOR FAILURE.
