Red light

Joining in


I've got the red light on my hub 3.

Tried turning it off 'n' on, still on.

Tried the reset with a pin in the hole, still on.

Doesn't feel any hotter.

Any Ideas would be greatly appreciated.

A faulty red LED overheat warning needs a Hub swap. It’s a possible risk. If you wait here a VM Mod will pick this up and discuss.

Hi Pellucid05,

Thanks for posting on our community forums. We're sorry to hear that you have a permanent red light on your hub. 

We a[appreciate you trying to reset the hub and rebooting, as this sometimes resolves the issue, however in your case with the red light remaining we will need to get an engineer booked and possible change the hub this over for you. 

I will pop you over a private message to take some details and get this arranged for you.

Please click on the envelope at the top of the page to accept the chat.

Kind regards, Jodi.
