This "F" symbol will always flashes after 30 hours of use and not 30 days.This is a remainder for you to clean the filter.SO your Zephyr Tornado can work more perfectly
When it flashes "F" clean it and you have to tell the Zephyr Tornado that the filter is
cleaned so it will stop flashing the remainder "F".For this you have Reset the filter clean reminder timer.Please check that the filter is re-installed (with hood off).
Press and hold (-) button for approximately 5 seconds until "F" display disappears.The
timer is reset and it will wake up after 30 hours of use.

Note:Still problem persist check you have reinstalled the filter properly with hood off).

post a comment for further assistance.

Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

How do I remove coins in the drum?

I just tried all manner of bending, pushing and prying the drum baffle. Can't get it to move. I'm thinking I need to break it to clean behind it then install a new drum baffle. At $49.35 plus tax and shipping I'll leave the coins there for now.

Runs hot, does not pick up
Not familiar with your vacuum, but there are at least TWO filters and two seals in it, according to the illustrated parts breakdown above. Assuming the HEPA filter is number A23 (final filter) in the above url, it sounds like you've got a full cartridge filter/dirt cup A29, blocking airflow through the vacuum. There is also a prefilter, A55 that could be clogged. The suction fan is usually directly attached to the motor, such that if the motor turns on, the fan should be working. Of course a plastic fan that has been used to chew up wood chips might be in tatters, but the fan should be in serviceable condition. Look at the IPB shown above and locate ALL filters, dirt cups, etc. and ensure that they are not clogged with dirt. If you can, remove the filters, close up the unit and turn the unit on to check the airflow, which not only moves the dirt into the dirtcup, but also cools the motor. Anything that obstructs airflow will generally raise the motor temperature and the exhausted air. I believe you'll find a full A29 filter.Good Luck

I once had something similar happen to me. Triple check to see that all connections are secure to the motherboard - a loose 20 pin ATX cable was the culprit in my case.
Hope that helps. Good luck!

Why does the Eureka capture plus pet lovers put off a loud tornado siren sound when you turn it on. I cleaned the filters checked everything and it sounds like a tornado siren in the south. Email...

I would check your fan and see if any of the blades have been fractured. I had this happen recently when my vacuum caught a screw and the sound and vibration was deafening.

I have both a tornado and a C3. I am getting a F2

for the f2 low temp verify the high-limit thermostat is not tripped. inspect the mags, make sure they are not loose. Also try inspecting the ir element washer look for corrosion or signs of arching. Is your wave cover damaged or missing. Sorry to say this generally is a factory trained fix because its usually because of an rf leak

Speed control on fan

It means that the filters on the hood need to be cleaned. You simply pop them out and can wash them in the dishwasher. Once clean, dry and replaced, you hold down the fan speed button (the second button from the left or " - " minus for more than five seconds.) When you first hit the button the A will appear, hold the button when the letter disappears, the timer has been reset until time for the next cleaning. The microprocessor in the system will flash every 30 hours of operation.
