This will probably be hard to find and you will see that it may also be cheaper to just pick up a new one. a batt pack will most likely be $25 to $30. when its such a throw away society many companies dont put out much for replacement parts.

Should the red light on my 15.6v dustbuster turn green when it's fully charged? It doesn't.


I had the same issue, then i just found the manual, in charging part, it says:"The charging indicator will be lit as long as the
appliance is connected to the plugged-in
charger."
Also it says:"While charging, the charger may get warm, this is
perfectly normal and safe. It can remain on
charge indefinitely without damage or danger. It
is not possible to "overcharge" the battery cells
with the charger provided"

We have a scunci recharge cordless wet-dry vac model # 52033. The battery does not charge. What can we do to fix this?


if the charger is working, and the battery does not hold a charge for very long, you will need a replacement battery. this is the most likely problem. if the battery does not charge at all it may well be the charger and you will need to replace that. hope this helps

Do I need to replace the battery as my dustbuster does not seem to have a lot of power and therefore does not pick up as it used to?


Yes the battery is most probably the problem. you can check is the voltage of the fully charge battery is same as what is stated on it, if not you definitely need a new battery

Black and decker handheld vacuum phv1800 type 1 low battery power


Hi I know what you mean! My B&D dust buster used to do this too. The hi power boost means that it can only be used for a limited amount of time. Due to the age of the dust buster though its a sign that the battery is on its way out and regardless of whether or how long its been used or not used, batteries can lose power regardless.
Try to let the dust buster completely lose power and then charge it up for its initial burn in period of 14 hours. Also clean the connection metal strips or hole with a dry cotton bud incase there's any static or dust. Then see if it lasts longer. If the turbo mode or speed 2 is still short, then the battery is dying out.
I don't know where you are but in the UK its hard to get battery replacements for B&D products. You could check your local seller where you are if they have battery replacements but at the cost of current dustbusters it may make more economic sense to consider buying a new dustbuster.

Charging Black & Decker Dustbuster


Leave it in the charger for at least 7 hours and then try and see if it works on a full performance time of roughly 3 minutes.

Oreck Electrikbroom (battery) won't hold charge and pick up dirt.


Battery needs to be replaced. All rechargeable batteries have limited recharge cycles. NiCad's are usually used in these and also develop "memory' which keeps them from recharging fully.
Contact Oreck or reputable dealer for replacement.

DUST BUSTER 7.2 -- POWER LASTS FOR UNDER ONE MINUTE??
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The problem that people have with dustbusters is that when they 1st get them they need to say train the dustbusters to extend the battery life, the process is simple – when you 1st buy the dustbuster then you charge it up the 1st time and then you turn it on and drain the battery down to nothing, and then recharge the dustbusters again, and by doing that you have a larger battery life and it will run longer – but dustbuster and vacuums like that do not tell you and when people buy the item they just turn it on for a minute or two and then the battery does not get a “memory” as per how long it should run. By doing this the dustbuster will last and run longer and will have fewer problems. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Thanks, Don the Vac Man

I hope the above link works. Replacement parts are available through DeWalt.

Also note, they now have a 12-volt version of the same vac. The price is about twice what you will pay for the replacement battery for your 9.6V model, but it may be worth it for the extra power.
