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.

I have bad news. That part is no longer available; check out the info here:

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.

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.

Motor does not switch to carpet


You need the clutch replaced. All Dyson DC-7 and DC-14 machines need to be serviced annually and have the clutch replaced if you want it to perform properly. Take it to your local vacuum repair shop to have it serviced. The good news for you is, most of the newer Dysons only last a couple of years and are disposable. Yours is repairable.

My DC16 will start and then stop. I have to take


My DC16 also had charging problems. I called Dyson and they sent a new charger. The old charger only produced 23.6 volts DC, not the rated 28 volts DC. The new charger has a thicker round wire and produces 28.1 volts DC. Put a volt meter on your charger terminals and see if it is producing enough voltage to fully charge the battery, 28 volt DC. If not you need a new charger.

My dc 16 rechargeable vacuum won't work


far as i know the dyson dc 16 root 6 vacuum uses a lithium ion battery with a charge of 21.6 volts. it could be that either your battery isnt storing the right amount of power anymore and you may need to replace it. check on the specifications to confirm how much volts the battery is supposed to have. too little volts may be enough for things like lights to switch on, but not enough for the motor to start up.

Dyson dc 07 not powering up, cleaned filter as well?


First try a different outlet, you never know.

More likely is that you may need to replace the power switch on the machine. Call the Dyson Helpline - they will find an authorized repair dealer in your area who will be able to inspect the power switch and replace it for you.

Reset Button on my Dyson DC 25 Animal


What do you want to reset? Do you mean the motor has stopped working? There is no "reset button". The motor has an automatic cut-out, which will operate if the motor gets too hot and will reset itself when it cools. If the motor will not work when it's cool, then you have an electrical problem which will probably need professional attention.

If this model is under 1 year warranty, I would suggest that you take it to a warranty repair shop or that you ask for a replacement. with a Return Material Authorization (RMA) at no further cost to you for shipping.

Our vac works for a short time, then shuts off and makes clicking noise as if trying to restart again. Works after cooling for a while but for another very short time. Your suggestion on fix would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks


I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure
I would advise that it could be a thermal switch or a regular switch that the thermal switch is over heating and needs replacement – there are small hoses in the door section that could have been pinched or kinked and it stopping the air flow from the vacuum – also check for a clogged or plugged vacuum hose, a full vacuum bag or a dirty vacuum filter. Check the thermal switch or reg switch or the hoses in the door. Or feel free to contact your local vacuum dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or call the factory @ the phone number listed below:

The brushes will only work if the handle is released and the ProHeat vacuum is running . There is a micro switch inside the lower handle that switches on the DC carpet brush motor. The DC power for the motor comes from a Bridge Rectifier on the PC Board. petedcurtis@gmail.com
