should a Dyson 45 battery work on a Dyson 44 motor head?

The listings on 3rd party batteries like at NewEgg (
HQRP Battery for Dyson DC31 DC34 DC35 DC44 DC45 DC56 Series plus HQRP... ), Ebay (
NEW DYSON DC44 DC45 VACUUM Battery Type 2000Mah CORDLESS DC34 DC35 4402B ), and others lump the battery for the DC44 and DC45 together, so you're probably fine.

You may want to take the battery to a Batteries Plus or such - sometimes a battery will show voltage just fine, but choke once there's a load on it. They have the gear to tell (same as with car batteries)

Good Luck

Pulsing then stops

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

Dyson Digital Slim cordless vacuums such as DC44 Animal are engineered to make a pulsing noise to warn you if the machine has a blockage. This can occur if an item too large for the machine has been vacuumed up accidentally. It's easily resolved by checking the floor tool, wand and bin inlet: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc44/dc44-animal/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-picking-up-as-well-as-usual-dc44/no-resolved-redirect-to-check-the-wand/check-wand

I'm confident following these steps will resolve the issue, but for any further guidance from our experts you can reach us directly by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

no suction Dyson DC44

Hi there Donna, it's Jack at Dyson.

If your DC44 seems to be running as normal but has no suction, it's likely you have a blockage in the floor tool, wand or bin inlet. The filter may also need a wash.

To check for and remove any blockages, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide:http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc44/dc44-animal/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-picking-up-as-well-as-usual-dc44/no-resolved-redirect-to-check-the-wand/check-wand

DC44 has one washable filter, engineered to last the lifetime of the machine in normal use. This should be washed at least once a month using cold water without detergent, as shown in the video below. Allow the filter to dry completely for at least 24 hours before replacing it.

I'm confident this will resolve the issue, but if you would like any further help from our experts after giving these steps a try, please give us a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

DC 44 animal wont charge. Charge light comes on then off after about 30 seconds.

Hi Darren, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty recharging your DC44 Animal. It should charge from flat within 5.5 hours when connected to the charger assembly, or placed in the docking station, as shown in the video above.

The charge light will turn off once the battery is fully charged. If it seems to be shutting off prematurely, we would need to take you through some quick diagnostic checks when you have the machine to hand. This will help us confirm what may be needed to resolve the issue.

Please give the Dyson customer Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1-877-397-6622 (CA), to speak directly with our team of experts.

Best wishes,

Dyson Online Customer Support
