My lady's vacuum shuts down when the dirt storage area gets full or swallows the wrong stuff. One has to clean up hoses and dirt paths and then wait for some 30 minutes before the thing will start.

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,

Perhaps dirt or hair is stuck or the full canister needs to be emptied, remove blockage and suction should return.

Hoover wind tunnel the red light dirt finder stays on


There's a microphone inside the tube the dirt runs up. It listens for dirt coming up the tube. They just go bad and there's no making it better. You can either replace that entire assembly or ignore it. Fairly easy to replace. I'll include the part so you know what you're looking at.
Good luck! The Vac Dr.

Look for a reset button, inspect the cord and if it failed while on make sure whatever it uses for a filter is not blocked with dirt.

See if the company will fix it under warranty. If not, you can take it apart and look for the obstruction. It sounds like something is inside obstruction the air-suction flow path. Normally the motor or controller would not cause the motor torque to drop.

What happens when i run my rainbow vacuume without water ?


The Rainbow must have water as this is the only way it filters the dirt before the motor. If you don't use water, all the dirt will go through the motor and could create serious issues. We have a cleaning service that will clean your Rainbow inside and out making it like new. Call us for details.

Loss of suction


If it is running and you have no suction, there has to be a clog in the dirt path. To clear it, start at the head of the vacuum (where the dirt goes in) take apart or disconnect everything you can along this path until you arrive at the bag or cannister. Take pics with your cell phone so you can reassemble it. Hoses: run a broom handle through all hoses to assure they are clear. If you have a shop vac or similar, try applying vacuum to all parts of your disabled vacuum in reverse. Are there filters on your machine? Make sure they are clean. You probably don't have hoses connected, but if you do, check them as I said.

I pick up vacuums along the road all the time. Very few are more than a few months old. All of then have a clog in the hose or elsewhere in the dirt path. I clean the path and sell the vacs for a slightly discounted price. VERY rarely is it a motor problem.

I hope you find this comment helpful. Here they are in under 5 minutes. Thanks for using FixYa.com

Maybe I could replace the belts and brush, but there seem to be too many places to go into to repair a suction problem. I need a repair shop for Hoover Wind Tunnel.


The belt and brush have nothing to do with the suction. The impeller on the motor creates negative pressure which results in a vacuum. ( or suction ) Many newer vacuums have as many as 4 filters. if any become completely clogged, the performance drops to nil. Start at the debris exit and work backwards. As a bagless, pulling the dirt canister out and removing the main filter is a good start. Most filters can be "tapped" clean and some are washable. after pulling out the filter, look where the passage way enters the filter chamber. Is it clogged? There is usually a secondary filter, which actually is set in a previous stage to the filter you just pulled out. Its main purpose if to catch hair, small nails, wire, and other material that could damage the more visible filter. If this filter is clogged then that will explain the loss of suction. Pull it out and clean it. An exhaust filter is located typically above the motor. Its purpose is to prevent fine particles from being blown about. It should be cleaned as well. With the filters clean and the hoses and passage ways clear, you should be good to go.
Good Luck!
