20 Most Recent Dyson V6 Absolute Bagless Cordless Hand Vac Questions & Answers


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your Dyson cleaner is cutting in and out. First, it can be due to a battery of the cleaner. Make sure that the power cable is properly plug to the power and seated properly from the unit while charging. If you find that the battery isn't charging at all, you may need to replace the battery. Second is to check the MAX button of your cleaner. If the button lights up and flashes when your Dyson keeps on pulsating, press and hold the power button and depress the MAX button to turn off the function. You may need to do it for a few times to get the hang of it. Third is to check for any blockages or clogs in the attachments. Look down through the tube and check to see if there are clogs on the sweeper end or if the roller is tangled up in fibers. Clean the roller brush are if it it's necessary. You may need to empty the dust bin of your unit as debris can build up in hard to reach places. Lastly, cleaning the filters may fix the pulsating of your cleaner. Remove the filter and rinse it with cold water and air dry it for 12 hours. Don't use detergent when washing your filters. If the pulsating doesn't go with the given quick fix, I suggest to contact Dyson for further assistance on this.

If it hasn't been used much its possible you have a poor battery. They should be fully charged and often to maintain their life.

The only fix is a bigger heavier battery. You might be able to find a back pack battery to plug in. If you know a tech, ask him if he can make you one. It is quite easy for a tech, especially if you are tolerant of aesthetics. Techies and not particularly aesthetics aware, on the average.

Basically, he will find a larger battery (more ampere hours) of maybe a better type (Lithium vice Nicad say) and then rig up a back pack and connector wire. It will plug into the V6 normally so will need to find a connector or ad his own to the V6.

You might contact the manufacture for an "extended rang battery". You might be able to add a cord/charger wire, but this defeats the cordless nature you probably want. Lithium batteries are much better than Nicad or Nimetel Hybrids but also much more expensive.

If it's only 2 weeks old, you could have a defective either charging system or just a bad battery. Most places offer free replacement within 30 days of purchase. I would take it back to your place of original purchase. I hope that helps!

There is a fault in it. You should take it back and ask for it to be repaired under warranty.

Hi Julie, it's Jack at Dyson.

I've made a quick video for you, showing some simple troubleshooting checks you can try. These should help you resolve this. You can view your video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vuB_ku6B_wg

As mentioned in the video, testing the floor tool directly on the machine will help determine if the issue is with the wand. If the floor tool still won't work when you attach it to the machine, check the contact pins on the clear bin and on the main body, and remove any fluff or debris. This will make sure power from the main body can reach the motor in the floor tool which powers the rotating brush bar.

I'm confident this will get your V6 machine up and running again. But if you do need any further guidance, it's easy to get in touch. Just contact the Dyson Helpline directly by calling 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA), or 0800 298 0298 (UK).

Hi, it's Allan from Dyson.

I'm sorry we haven't been in touch about this sooner.

It depends where you are.

For example, the UK V6 Absolute has not been tested with the soft roller head and it will not fit.

I would recommend contacting Dyson directly in your region to discuss this further.

Please give the Dyson Helpline a call on 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA), 0800 298 0298 (UK). Our experts will be happy to talk you through some further diagnostic checks when you have your machine easily to hand.

Best wishes,

Allan
