The hose between your solutions tank and the sprayer is probably clogged. If you can hear the sprayer noise, and get no spray, you will have to get some solvent and use a syringe to clean the line. Remember each time you use it, you should pass two tanks of fresh water through it to clean it so it won't be clogged for your next use.

Check for a clog , the vacuum will shut off after a few mins or so.

Hello, Kathy -

If you have not yet checked your owner's manual; the Troubleshooting section, I suggest you do.

If you do not have the manual, you can download a PDF (Adobe Reader) version here:

I hope you made sure the dirty water tank was empty and that the filter screen is clean.

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.

The schematics of your model show two belts. Which belt are you looking for?

Hoover Vacuums | Answered on Dec 30, 2017


Okay. I read these posts and decided to take the advice of checking the hose.
I had cleaned all filters, checked all hose (as-is) and did belt checks, etc.
The indicator was always showing red and it would shut down after about 5 minutes.
It ended up being a clog that I discovered after taking the hose completely off and seeing a clump right where the hose detaches. I began swinging the hose round and round and sure enough, more cat hair clumpls shot out. Big clumps.
So, you literally need to check every inch of hose to find the culprit.
After that, my indicator stayed green and it works like a charm.
Best wishes, Mike D
