The dirt sensor is a motion detector. After it gets dirty it will either stay red or stay green. You can have the vacuum serviced at your local vac shop and possibly get this fixed. Sometimes they are as good as new and sometimes they are not repairable. It will not effect anything else though.

If you have the receipt from when you bought it, take it to the closest Hoover warranty center and they will fix it under the warranty at no cost to you.

A bit too late I fear. There is either grit from an overloaded dust bag in the motor or the brushes have worn out. Spares and not expensive.

With a an electrical short that is strong enough to trip the safety on the house, it must be repaired or replaced to be safe. So it is a matter of your taste and the cost. I would bring it to a repair shop, ask for a quote and their opinion based on the condition of the vacuum.

Try unplugging the machine and plugging it back in and see if that helps reset it.

its more likely to be the heater element the temp sensor is fitted to this, remove the rear of the unit and at the bottom of the back of the drum there is a nut and either side there are 2 wires remove them and undo the nuts first nut holds the earth second nut remove but not all the way, un clip the connector for the thermostat, with all wires out of the way now push on the nut as to push into the washer and then pull on the 2 parts were the wires were it will be stiff to move. when it comes out wipe around the hole and clean it before fitting new element. fitting the element in side there is a metal plate the element has to fit into this, best way to fit it right is to make the element end at an angel when fitting. when its fitted it should be flush, tighten the nut until its a nice snug fit with no movement. then refit all wires and earth wire and nut. check everything is done and looks the same as it was when you started. you are now done. put back on and washer ready to use.

It's not so much a matter of safety as wearing the motor out quicker. Normally the switch that comes with it smooths the rough edges and surges out of the current. By just plugging and unplugging it to turn on and off, you are exposing it to a surge that will shorten the motor life.
