Hoover U6630-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum\015 I had a big clog in mine and took the back off to clear it. Ever since I reassembled it, the embedded dirt light has stayed on red, all the time. I took it apart again and the light will switch to green when I put my finger over the small metal sensor then remove it. Where should the little metal sensor be when the unit is reassembled?\015
How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?
Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced Vacuum Technicians :
If the indicator is turning red partially or slowly then you may need to clean any of the three filters this vacuum has, as they are causing a decrease in suction. The first of the two main filters, the dust filter, should be cleaned every 2 months.
The battery needs to be charged. Leave the robot on the base. If it`s still not fully charged after 3 hours visit Why does my Roomba® or Braava® not turn on or charge properly?
First make sure you have charged your device. If the vacuum still will not turn on after that, try to unplug the vacuum charger from the outlet. Leave the charger unplugged for at least 1-2 minutes. Next, turn on the stick vacuum and let run until the battery completely drains.

.The little sensor should be in the round recess in the top of that assembly. When you are putting the cover back on you have to use a pair of needle nose pliers to push the sensor into the round recess until it is snug. It is hard to do because the wires to the sensor are very short and you have to be careful not to break the wires on the sensor. The sensor is a little microphone that senses the noise of the dirt going through the EDF. The first time I did mine I didn’t push it in hard enough and came out of the EDF recess and fell inside the vacuum body.
.Check all hoses – dont just look at them … disconnect them – run something through them – check completely. I pick up dozens of discarded machines from the trash heap – more than 90% have clogged hoses and nothing else wrong with them.

When I’m charging Roomba, the orange light blinks (and this is normal!) but this orange blinking continues forever…. the light doesn’t change to green.
If I detach Roomba from the charger, the light become green and it works normally until the light changes to red and I have to charge it again.
WHY, DURING THE CHARGING PHASE, THE LIGHT DOESN’T CHANGE FROM ORANGE-BLINKING TO GREEN?
A few tips to keep the battery working longer:
Only charge the battery when it is drained all the way to zero. It will help keep the battery active.
Only charge the battery until it is full and then disconect it from the power source. It will keep it active longer plus it will help keep your electric bill down.
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.

A casa blanca tri-switch on the wall: lights-fan-power
When I turn it on, the lights and fan work fine.
After a period of time, the lights go off by themselves.
I don’t remember the fan ever going off by itself, only the lights.
.Now attempt to do the job only if your are competent with high voltage circuits as the circuit must be checked before and after the lights switch off.
.It is also possible that the switching device the thyristor may be on dry soldering joint. So with the mains power off( or the power disconnected to the unit) have yourself insulated , use a soldering iron to touch up all the joints.
.Failure of capacitors in the trigger circuit is also possible to have this delay off.
.Trace the trigger voltage cut off at this point to come to the solution.( use a multimeter)
