V11 Absolute - cannot be used in boost mode - constantly says airways blocked

I have a V11 absolute that is a couple of years old.  Has given pretty good service until recently when it will not go into boost mode - it always says “airways blocked” - which they are not.  It works fine in medium and eco mode, but sometimes these are not pwowerful enough.  

I have tried the following:

  • Performed all recommended maintenance
  • Confirmed that there are no blockages
  • Purchased new filters and clean them every day
  • Purchased new bin

It seems to me like I’m going to have to buy a new vacuum.  Anybody solved a problem like this?
