As long as the service isn't affected and the hub isn't hot to touch, it's absolutely fine @luissequeira and wouldn't need replacing. I'll feed this back to our team to highlight the red light issue with no apparent reason for it.
My apologies for the inconvenience but please do update us if any issues arise, we'll have this sorted as soon as possible if so.
If VM are happy to leave a potentially overheating hub in your living room - having had it called in - then I guess they'd be happy to pay for any damage should the hub catch fire! Faulty warning light can be worse than a fault.
It would be the hub that cried wolf!
(It's definitely in router mode and not modem mode?)
Whilst we're not able to replace it currently, I would like to arrange for an engineer to come and check things just to make sure that all is OK. I just need to confirm the address to ensure we are booking the visit on the correct account.

@luissequeira If it doesn't get replaced when the technician visits, let us know.
It would be totally and utterly indefensible for VM to be doing any new customer connections and Gig 1 upgrades if they are telling other customers to keep using equipment that is indicating that it is overheating. Whether that's real overheating, a faulty indicator, or "just" a CPU cooling fault in the hub, it is not acceptable and not responsible. And since the visiting technician will not dismantle the hub, probably has never even seen the inside of one, undoubtedly has no training in solid state devices, I doubt they will be able to give an authoritative answer on whether it is overheating, and is safe.
If the hub didn't need an overheating indicator it wouldn't have one, and since it does, clearly the makers expect the provider to do something about it, and that would not include saying "don't worry about that, it's OK". The fact that VM have a hub supply chain with zero resilience is no excuse.
