Question about Black & Decker V4810 DustBuster Bagless Handheld Vacuum

Open Question

Dustbuster v4810 battery not charging - but I can't find new one!

Hi there. I bought a used Dustbuster v4810. It was fine for about a month, but now the battery isn't holding a charge. It poops out after about 15 seconds! Looking online, I see that many others have had the same problem, even after keeping the unit charged all the time, as their manual recommends. (And, since mine was sitting in a store for who knows how long, mine was NOT charged continuously.) I realized I needed a new battery, but as many online users predicted, I can't find a replacement battery! Do you have any suggestions about where I can find one? Or should I not waste my money and just get a different, better model?

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.

First make sure it's not the wall charger - use a meter or a flashlight bulb to test the 15 or so volts that should be on the contacts when the charger is plugged in but the unit is detached.

The next thing is to remove the filters and see how easily the "fan" spins - use a popsickle stick or something that won't break the plastic fan if you can't get your fingers on it. Tight bearings may indicate clogged with dust (or corrosion) or destroyed. Free bearings likely indicate a switch or battery problem (good motor.)

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.

You can test the output of the charger with a multimeter. Set it at about the 20v scale and touch the contacts at point where it connects with the Dustbuster. If you get a reading it means that the charger is working. I would say that the charger is most likely not working because LED indicators very seldom fail while chargers are not all that reliable.

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"

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

I need a black and decker dustbuster manual to know what kind of batteries to buy. I recently got this dustbuster at a garage sale. The charge/wall mount says it is a 9.6volt FVE9610 Type 1. Help? Joan...


I have bad news. That part is no longer available; check out the info here:
http://www.ereplacementparts.com/black-and-decker-fve9610-dustbuster-parts-c-4167_8887_8911.html
I actually have exactly this kind of dustbuster, and I was able to renew the battery pack, but I had to do it by using eight individual cells and soldering them together. The size of cell (I think it's called a sub-c) is not common to consumers, but is fairly common to battery pack manufacturers. Quite honestly, your dustbuster with no battery is worthless, even when it was available, the pack was $46.46 as a spare - probably more than the thing is worth. Buy a new one from wal mart! If you really, really want to look at getting a new pack for this one, then your only option is to find a specialist battery store (I know there's one in my city) that can 'remanufacture' them. Basically, they take the old pack, and rip out the old cells, and put in new ones. They have the special equipment to weld the connections without frying the cells too, and they have access to Sub-C cells, of course. It'll be expensive. Good luck, you're gonna need it. Sell it at a garage sale; it looks nice.

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.
