Use a cloth to clean the filter and auger. If any debris builds up around the auger it will cause it to jam and become blocked setting off the 'blocked' alarm.
At Hoover we recommend that you keep your filters clean and then replace them once per year, new ones can be purchased from the spares section of the website.
