You can try to get it to reset itself by doing the following: Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF. Unplug the unit and leave unplugged for 12 - 15 minutes. Then plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the controls as you normally do. Hopefully, the 12 - 15 minute timeout, allowed the unit to reset itself.
Generally, this works 90% of the time. I hope it works for you.
Turn the Master ON/ OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit. Wait 12-15 minutes and plug the unit back in. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set your controls. The 12-15 minute timeout should have allowed the unit to reset itself.
Crystal, first turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF. Unplug the unit from the wall outlet and wait 12-15 minutes before plugging the unit back in. After you plug it in, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set the controls as you wish. Hopefully, during that 12 - 15 minute timeout, the unit reset itself and should now work normally.
If that doesn't solve the problem, you can call Hunter Technical Support. In the US dial 888-830-1326. In Canada dial 866-268-1936
Here's something that has worked in the past. Turn the Master ON/OFF switch to OFF. Unplug the unit from the wall outlet and wait 12 - 15 minutes before plugging it back in. Once it's plugged back in turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set the controls as you normally do.I f everything now functions as it should, the unit reset itself.
If that doesn't solve the problem contact the Oreck Service Dept that did the tuneup for you.
I had the same problem: Had cleaned it inside, taking off both grids, washing wire, etc. Still the red light blinking would come back on after a few minutes. So here's what I did next:
Take off the grids on both sides. Make sure the grids are clean with water and paper towels (lots of black) On the unit itself, wipe out the metal sides and all the plastic. Then, here's the KEY,
get out your computer cleaning canned AIR and blow it into the open unit and blow the air on both of the grids too. I first used a hairdryer to blow it out, but the canned air is much stronger and I got all kinds of little black particles out with it.
Put it up and down 3 times, plugged it back in and WALAA! The unit is back to working perfectly and no red light has come on again!
I'm sure this will work for everyone if you just get the canned air and blow out the unit and the grids too even though you've cleaned them!
I had the same problem with mine, it would start then go into drying mode. I got it to work properly by smacking it around for about a week then it went back to it's lil tricks with drying mode again. After trying just about everything short of using it for target pratice, I made sure it was clean and dry then I turned it to the Medium setting, pressed the power button waited just a second for the fan to go into the meduim fan level, then I pressed the power button again holding it in before it went into the drying cycle, while I held the button, (don't release) I wadded up some tape to keep the button depressed then I put some tape over that to keep it that way. It works perfect! Note, mine never had any crackling issues to begin with, just the drying cycle thing so use this suggestion at your own risk. Good luck!
Unit likely had large partical like dog or cat hair cross over cell, Unlplug and remove pre-filter & cell.
The unit has a timer that knows when power has been removed & front grille has been taken off by 2 micro switches in back of front grille that is connected to the units control board.
While you are there remove pre-filter & Cell, if ok and no debris is found & theres no need to wash, wait 10 to 15 minutes replace all & plug back in.
You should see the LED display flashing Clean Cell & Cell button flashing, hold Cell button in at least 3 seconds this may take longer to reset. Unit should turn back on.
This condition has happened to my 2 units on occasion even though I had washed the cell only a week or two previously.
The unit will turn off if a cell overload is detected by way of large static discharge. If I know the cell is clean, I just unplug the unit & take the front grille off for 15 minutes then & replace it plug back in & reset & all goes back to normal operation.
I have two Quadras not sure about the GPS. The only way to clean them properly is to complete the folowing steps. This will eliminate the hissing noises and intermittent shutdowns. Clean the blade unit as normal and leave it out of the unit. Unplug the unit, remove the four phillip screws on the top of the unit where the collector grid slides down. Next remove the four screws holding on to the base of the unit. After this you will see two additional screws also by the base that need to be removed. Look carefully between the grills of the unit and you will see about 12 to fifteen tiny screws that hold the grill together. After these are removed take off the UL label and seprate the grill. You may have to gently pull up on the top where the power switch is located. I have found if you use a lightly dampened scotch brite pad to carefully clean the two wires works best. Clean the wires and pins at the bottom and make sure all is well. Use a microfiber or lint free cloth to gently wipe everthing down and make sure the unit is dry. Put it back together and put the UL sticker back on.
