Question about Hoover Vacuums
SOURCE: 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,

The catch/latch that is on the bottom of the bin button release has likely broken.
If you take out the canister (as when you are dumping the bin), and flip it upside down and then squeeze the bin release button, you will see that it moves a rod inside the cyclone assembly. At the end of this rod is a plastic (plastic.. redundant, as the entire Dyson is practically plastic) latch that catches onto the bin's lid and locks it in place. A broken latch means it doesn't lock the lid in.
What you need is a replacement latch. Note that the "Bin Release Button + Rod assembly" that are sometimes sold on ebay do *not* contain the latch at the end of the rod. Also the bottom bin assembly does not contain the required parts.
The cyclone assembly should have the full bin release rod + latch, so if you can't find the latch, then a new cyclone assembly would work also (but will cost more, obviously).

Inspection of the circuit board found that the 470uF capacitor looked damaged. I replaced it and I now have the Green and Red lights are working correctly.
