The red filter indicator light on my 3522 Series PowerForce® Bagged Vacuum won't turn off. What should I check?

Answer: For models: 3522-1, 3522-3, 3522-5


1. Detach the hose completely from back of machine and turn the vacuum on. If the indicator turns red, check the bag style and filter for debris.


2. If indicator stays green, one of the hoses may be clogged. You’ll need to clear the clog before proceeding.re proceeding further. Please see our “Clearing Clogs” FAQ for the PowerForce® for details.


3. If after clogs have been cleared and the bag and filters checked, and the light is still red, please take your vacuum to a technician.
