Thanks Jamie,
is there any error message or symbol on the machines console?

Expert:  Michael replied 2 years ago.
Hi Jamie,you have a jammed pressure switch on full it says so if removed the blockage have u tired replacing the pressure switch. You can sometimes test them by blowing into the part where the pressure tube goes, but only blow gently. You should hear it click when you blow into it.
Obviously the machine will need isolating first and the switch will need removing from the machine. it depends how handy you are if you can change brakes in a car this will be an easy task to replace hope this helps please remember to rank how this helps you and if i can help in any other way please write me back have a great day.I will stick with you until the unit is fixed properly.
But please rate my service thus far to you before closing this page.
It won't cost you anything to further to rate and I will be with you at no additional cost;-)
Thank you Jamie.

Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 2 years ago.

Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to you queries ~ before you go off and try to take the appliance apart, can you confirm that this is a Hoover appliance not a Hotpoint appliance and if it is a Hoover could you give us the product code which starts with 3.......... The fault codes for Hoover are different to those of a Hotpoint !!

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Hi it's a hotpoint
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 2 years ago.
Thank you for the clarification there is a Hoover HV6 too ~ as you have already rated Michael I will leave him to finish off the question(s) that follow ~~
