Your machine could be clogged, check the tools for suction. If its a bag less model you might need to clean or replace your filters.

Red "DIRTY" light is on most of time, even after going over and over what should be clean carpets. Head is lifted, getting good suction. Got a solution?


The sensor that detects the dirt can get dirty causing the light to stay on. Hold the vacuum up in the air or position the vacuum in a way to observe the light when the vacuum is running but the nozzle assembly is not on the floor so it cannot be picking up any dirt. If the light will not go off it's likely the sensor needs cleaned.

Hoover - Red Light Dirt Sensor


check to make sure the settings didn't get inadvertently switched to the hi position, move the switch back and forth from high to reg a few times, then leave it on reg.

remove and hand wash the primary filter and secondary filter, dry throughly and replace them in the vacuum.

if none of this works, you will need to have the vacuum serviced, or if it is still working, just don't pay attention to the dirt-finder. the dirt sensor on your vacuum is located in the suction tube and is generally not accessible enough to clean without taking the vacuum apart.

hope this helps,

Do; you use #1 or #4 for hardwood and tile floors


Use the 1 setting. The brushes spin but it is a soft brush and will not scratch. Make sure the thin rubber squeegee behind the brush is still in good shape. That prevent dirt from being kicked out behind the vac. Hope this Helps

Uh70015 dirt sensor stays on green. Goes on red for about 5 seconds then green. Can clearly see the floor is dirty and it is picking up stuff.


ahh the good ol electronics on vacuums selling the product again...

not to worry, your feature is working properly, your vacuum is working fine too.

Imagine if you will making a circle with your pointer finger and your thumb. Now put a string or thread across in a straight line there. The string would be the size of the beam of light that the sensor uses. Your finger and thumb are about the size of the tube that the dirt and dust is passing by. Unless the dirt passes and cuts through the beam of light, then it will register. otherwise if it passes around the beam of light, the sensor thinks your carpet is clean.

The opposite sometimes will happen too where it will stay constant red. That means that the sensor is completely covered in dirt and will not register anymore.

Hope this helps.

Hoover Tempo Widepath Blows Dirt Out Back on Hard Surfaces


lots of times switching to hard surface floors you need to slow down because the air flow that does the actual picking up of the dirt can't work as fast as the spinning brush so the brush is throwing the dirt out the back before the suction can pick it up. Try slowing down

Sensor wont go to green


Try cleaning the dirt sensor. It's usually located where the bag connects to the vacuum. Take the bag off and clean the inside of the tube that goes into the bag with a damp cloth.

Problem with embedded dirt finder


Take the hose off at the back of the vac, should just turn then pull oull, look down inside the tube that the hose was connected to, there is a sensor there and if it is coated over with dirt, then it can't work, Clean it off and the try it, if it still stays on, then you have a bad sensor, and if this is less then a year old, you have a one year warranty on this. Take it to a warranty shop and take proof of purchase with you.
