What should I do when a red light appears on my Jet cleaner?

Last Update date : Nov 24. 2020

When the red light on the display part of the Jet cleaner lights up, it is recommended to check the condition of the dust bag and filters. You can easily remove the filter to check the assembly or clean it to resolve the problem.

3 key icons on the display panel

There are three types of icons that are displayed on the Samsung Jet Cleaner. If the icon turns red, you will need to clean the filter for the corresponding icon. Find out how to take action for each type of icon below.

  • Clogged: Dust canisters, pipes, and suction parts are blocked
  • Spinning brush stuck: Rollers on the brush are stuck and do not rotate
  • No Filter: Washable filter is not assembled

When the red light appears on the Clogged icon

When the red light is lit on the clogged icon, it is recommended to check and clean the Washable micro filter in the dust bin. It would also be helpful to clean the metal mesh grill located inside.

  • If necessary, soak the dust bin in water for about 30 minutes, and then wash to clean. 
  • Wash the metallic mesh grill filter and Washable micro filter under running water.

When the red light appears on the Spinning Brush Struck icon

When the spinning brush is disassembled, the Turbo Action Brush's EZ Clean function automatically removes tangled foreign matter or hair. If the foreign matter is not removed, use scissors to remove it.

When foreign matter remains on the brush, remove with wet tissue or dry cloth.

  • Do not clean the spinning brush and suction part with water.
  • Do not use the Soft Action brush to remove moisture, such as liquid and pet waste.

Note: When cleaning the brush, be careful not to catch your fingers in the fold of the brush.

When the No Filter icon is lit red

When the red light appears on the no filter icon on the display panel, this means that there's no filter inside or the washable micro filter was not assembled properly. The product cannot be used without assembling the washable micro filter. Please properly assemble the washable micro filter.

If the product does not turn on even when the Washable micro filter is assembled properly, make sure it is assembled correctly. Please follow the direction for reassembly below.

To use the clean station, the basic dust bin of the Samsung Jet cleaner must be removed and replaced with a dedicated dust bin. Using a clean station reduces dust by up to 400 times compared to throwing it directly into the trash (based on our experimental values).

Step 1. Press the PUSH button to open the lid and insert dust bin vertically.

Step 2. The blue light comes on and dust is discharged automatically.

Step 3. When the operation stops completely, remove the dust bin and then close the bottom dust bin cover and the Clean Station main body cover.

  • If dust remains after operation, press the START/STOP button on the right side of the product for further operation.
  • If the dust cannot be discharged because the dust bin is full, cover the washable micro filter with your palm and operate.
