Sounds like the foam seals are leaking. Go to their website to get replacement parts.

Clean the two little contacts on the tray. Make absolutely sure there isn't anything across the two wires that run the length of the tray. It doesn't take much to trigger the light.

That may be very hard to do without changing the dye color. The longer it is in there the worse it will be.
In order:
1) try tuff stuff foam cleaner you can buy at Wal mart
2) if that does not work - try mineral spirits to see if it comes out. Finish with Tuff Stuff to get residual mineral spirits out
3) if those 2 do not work - this is the last ditch effort - you will need a commercial solvent. May take the dye out and hurt the carpet fibers.

Good Luck!

Put a piece of clean fabric over the wax and use a warm iron on top of the fabric to melt the wax, rub and repeat if necessary

Request from the manufacturer/distributor

Vacuum cleaner hose can be bought off the roll in some repair establishments, usually those places that primarily service the needs of trade customers.

The trouble is, although a length of hose can be bought, it isn't helpful in every case as manufacturers these days tend to weld the end fittings to their hoses making it almost impossible to separate, forcing people to pay inflated prices for replacement hoses as a spare part from the vacuum cleaner manufacturer or an aftermarket supplier.

If you have mostly hard floors you can't go wrong with a Miele canister vacuum. They have many models out. I would suggest one with a 14" horse hair floor brush. they are german made and last for years. Don't buy a Dyson they are very harsh on hard floors and your carpet.

May you explain more what happen? Did a cap get stuck in the hole? If so take a household vacuum and use the attachment tool to suck the cap out.
