    Now mate. Yeah I have the same hoover and I have had the same problem with mine a few times. Does that stupid filter button struggle to turn off as well.?? If u are confident in taking it apart then all u have to do is get to the switch under the button and take the switch apart and just clean the copper connections. On mine its happened to both switches

    Sorry for late reply - Bean is correct - copper connections under the plastic part of the switch will have build up of dust, either take switch cover off or use air line to blast out dust usually sorts out "sticky" switch issue

    I don't know why they messed with the design? I had the first model for around 10 years before I sold it, saw zero issues with any of the moving parts. It was bagged up after use and only even needed a clean every 6 months or so.

    Are Flex hearing this feedback Marcus?
    Your messages are really important to us
    ...but not important enough to employ a sufficient number of support staff to answer them.
