I had one that had the "needs cleaning" light was on. After cleaning, the light stayed on. I checked around at the time and learned it couldn't be fixed, and it was out of warrantee. I believe that's why they stopped making them. Mine was just thrown away.
I have had to hit the power button several times in a row to get the red cleaning light off till the other light went blue. Thats what I did, Did you just clean the blades? there is another part that cleans the wires too, Its like a plunger.
Have you cleaned the bars lately? I believe that red light means that the bars that collect the junk from the air are at capacity and needed to be wiped down.
If you don't know how to do this, pull them out from the top after having turned the machine off. Get a rag or paper town moist, but not dripping and just wipe the black soot off all visible sides of the metal bars. Lay it aside when done over night for it to dry completely, then re-insert them into the machine. Turn on and hopefully that should take care of it!
All electrical contacts can get a film on them. Try cleaning the contacts (at the bottom of the blade unit; you should see the three with the blades out) with an alcohol swab (make sure the contacts are dry before reassembly in this case) or a pencil eraser (vacuum the debris out before attempting to start it again).
If those contacts don't make up properly, the unit will think it needs cleaning, even though it doesn't.
