Saw this today on our local Facebook marketplace offered for a reduced price of $50, used one time, nice neighborhood! And tools still taped in place. I know they're a bit heavy and a bit noisy but they clean well sadly the clean indicator lights do not work at all. Easy fix? Or just be happy that it's nice condition.

I really like those later models of the Windtunnel for some reason. If one comes up in a thrift store again for fairly cheap, I'm getting it.

I've used several models over a long time span, feels different, but smoother and quieter too. Of course it has one hour use too.

I guess purchase price was really $40, as it came with a sealed package of two hepa bags also.

Great find! I just got one too and paid about $50 shipped on eBay from a Goodwill Outlet. Been wanting one forever. These are the special Anniversary Editions. You have the Premium model like I have, which has dual carpet adjust sliders as well as the DirtFinder and PowerDrive system. There was another model below this one that had one carpet adjust slider, the dirt sensor, and NO power drive.

The sensor lights only light up when it detects a significant amount of dirt coming through, so it's possible you just do not have that much dirt in the carpet, or the sensor thing (I think it's a microphone...or a laser eye?) is dirty or obstructed and needs to be cleaned off.

Thanks for your input, they don't light up at all there is power to the circuit board.

Great price for a great machine.

I have both the silver and blue 100th Anniversary models. Yes, they are loud and not so light, but, they perform very well.
