Panasonic Dirt Sensor vacuum repair


Dirt Sensors are sensitive. It doesn't take much to set them off. Try pulling back on the handle to raise the brushroll a few inches off the floor so you know it's not detecting particles of soil. If the light doesn't turn green it may have dirt on the sensors and need to be cleaned.

Clean dirt sensor on panasonic bagless vacuum


Did you check to make sure there isn't any small piece of dirt, etc. in the way? Keep working with it; it should reset back to normal

Where is the "dirt sensor" in the upright


If you look at the rear of the machine you will see where the hose attaches to it's fitting. At the bottom of the hose connector you will see a "bump". This is where the dirt sensor microphone is located. To cure a sensor stuck on red, remove the entire rear panel, and you will see the mike. Push around it's edges with a small screwdriver to firmly seat it, and your sensor should work properly. It may not seem as if you're doing anything, but it usually works.

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.

Kenmore Progressive issue


I started by replacing the bag. No change.

I opened the bag compartment and noticed that the dirt sensor went to clean, but only when the compartment was open.

I cleaned out the foam filer at the bottom of the bag compartment. No change.

I took off the air outflow filter and cleaned it (Should have replaced it, but don't have a spare right now.). No change.

Unscrewed the hos from the back of the vacuum. The dirt sensor again went to clean.

I had isolated the problem to the hose. I hooked the hose back up and the dirt sensor went to dirty again.
The problem was that the hose was dirty on the inside. To clean the hose, I stretched it out little by little and banged it a little to loosed the dirt with the vacuum running. After the hose was cleaned, the dirt sensor had no problems.

Hoover Dirt Finder (light) not working


Good be a bad sensor, but if less then a year old, it is under warranty. I would take it in to a warranty repair shop and have them fix it.

Dirt finder sensor stopped working


I had the same problem with a hoover windtunnel 6200 - u5477-900. I removed the flexible hose from top of the plastic tube running vertically along the right side of the back of the vacuum. When I used a flashlight to look into the plastic tube, I could see a clog at the bottom, where the flexible hose curved frontwards towards the brushes. I then removed the 2 screws holding the vertical plastic tube to the vacuum. When I disconnected the plastic tube from the flexible hose at the bottom, I found a clog of dirt and dog hair. After removing the clog and reassembling, the clean / dirty light now moves back and forth from red to green.

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.

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,
