Hub 3 has permanent Red light on

Tuning in

My virgin Hub 3 has had a red light on instead of white for well over a month.  I have tried all the suggestions online such as turning off for 30mins to let it cool down and performing a hard reset but nothing seems to cure it.

The hub is working ok but I am bothered by this in case its not secure or something 

Can anyone advise?






It can be the Hub 3 LED is fading or it can an over temperature fault.

To check login in to the Hub 3 menu at   use the numeric HUB PASSWORD from the bottom side label.   ( this is not the Wi-Fi password )

Run the Network diagnostic tool

Scroll down through the results and find the Temperature entry.   Is it normal ?

Hi there @Mike_R3 

Thank you so much for your post and welcome back to the forums, it's always great to have you here. 

I am so sorry that you are facing this issue with your Hub and thank you again for trying all the recommended fixes already. I do think, as these have not worked, it would be best for us to arrange an engineer to come and take a look into this for you. I will arrange this with you via a private message. 

I will pop you a PM across now, please keep an eye out for the envelope at the top of your screen alerting you to a new message.
