My Hub 3 has red light!

Hi,

my hub 3 is in modem mode and is showing a red power light instead of the usual white power light.

It is solid red but the hub is not overheating and is kept in open space with well ventilation!

Can someone help me?

Modem mode = Magenta, which can appear red.

Re: My Hub 3 has red light!

If it's in modem mode then that's normal.  Technically the colour is supposed to be "magenta", but as the LED package is a cheap and short life affair, the blue output of the RGB diode package fades and the resultant attempt at magenta looks red.  If you're worried, flick back to router mode, see what colour it is when it comes back on line.  White through to light orange are acceptable.

Re: My Hub 3 has red light!

Hi @Starkn93,

Welcome to our Community Forums. Thank you for your first post, and I'm sorry to see that you're experiencing some issues with your Hub and that it is hot to the touch! 

Can you confirm if your base LED Hub light is still showing as red when you switch your Hub to Router Mode?

Is your Hub placed in an open and well-ventilated area, so overheating is not caused by the area in which the Hub is kept?

Please let us know so we can help.

Thanks.
