Hi thank you for that information,

Does the suction still fell good?

Usually in most cases there is a blockage in a hose or vent orifice to the bag area when this light comes on.

Please check for this well, also another thing that causes this is a losses or misaligned seal somewhere in the system or a clogged or improperly seated filter.

If all that is good please let me know.

Then we can go further on this as I will knwo what is wrong then;-)

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.

Please rate my service thus far.EXCELLENT (5 Stars) would be greatly appreciated.

There is NO cost to rate Kindly;-)
