Hi r_almeida32,

Seems like the bin full light keeps coming on even there is no paper in the basket. This issue happens when machine has a false reading, like bin full light comes on but the shredder basket is empty. To correct the problem, just check the sensor and remove the dirt on it. Please follow the steps below for additional troubleshooting.

1. Locate the sensor. Please locate the sensor on the bottom side of the shredder head.
--> pull the basket from the unit, and remove the shredder head from the cabinet. Pull straight up to remove it. You may need assistance to do this because the shredder head will be heavy.

2. On the bottom side of the shredder head, find the 2 raised plastic housings ( it is like a shamrock or clover ). It has 2 metal screws in each. Now, on each of these casings, facing each other you can locate the sensor which look like "small glass beads" or "marbles". Wipe the sensor with a soft cloth dampened with plain water.

--> these procedure most often solve the problem. I recommend to periodically clean this sensors along with routine maintenance on the machine.

If this does not solve your issue, please contact the manufacturer.

Neato stopped working followed manual directions cleaned everything carefully blue light flashing then green light flashes and then turns off when red lite appears

Hello, Diane -

Your question landed in the category of Television & Video. Somehow, I suspect your question is about a robotic vacuum cleaner and not TV or video.

If I am correct, this MAY be the problem:
[From: ]
Why does my Neato Robot sometimes stop and start by itself?

Debris around the dirt bin might be causing the bin to dislodge. As a safety feature, the robot turns itself off when the dirt bin is not fully inserted - and continues cleaning when the bin is back in its proper position.

Check to make sure the area is free of dirt and that the dirt bin is properly inserted into your robot.
[End quote]

You can also contact Neato Customer Care and state the problem. This is the Contact Us link:

Cleaning ladies were here yesterday. Evidently they did something because today when I turned it on both the red and green lights are lit and the expected humming sound is absent.

Check for the trigger wire. On Fellowes it is usually a thin wire in the middle of the unit that triggers the shredding mechanism. Also check to be sure the shredded recepticle is pushed in fully.

2001 Rodeo 6 cylinder. ABS light comes on when I start car. Have had the brakes check and they tell me there is no problem. Car has about 115,000 miles on original brakes but I am told it still has...

The ABS will come on and stay lit for a couple seconds when you start the car. It should then extinguish. This is normal operation. If it stays lit there is a problem and the ABS will not be available, although the brake system is still fully operational. Leave a message if this is not solved.

Having a gearbox fault that lights and i can't shift. When i turn the car off and turn it back on, it extinguishes. Now the gearbox light is lit and the engine light is lit???

Check the fluid level in the gearbox firstly.

Other 2 things it could be are the torque converter or slave cylider for the clutch.

Most likely it is the torque converter as the engine light is on aswell. although these may not be related. you will need to get it on a code reader, diagnostic machine to be sure.

Power & Resume light stay lit. Cover and rear access panel have been closed repeatedly.

The spring contacts on the rear access cover were not seated fully in place. Over time fatigue meant they failed to touch the contacts at all. Fully inserting the spring contacts solved the problem.

1997 Tarus dome light and floor lights will not go out.

This is usually caused by the switches sticking in the door latches. Try spraying some WD40 in the latches and open and close the doors a bunch of times that should take care of it.
