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.

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"

If you can provide a model number, I can check availability of the switch and can either order it for you, or supply the B&D part number and you can order it from most local vacuum shops in your area or from Black & Decker direct online: http://www.blackanddeckerservicenet.com/servicenet_home.aspx?AspxAutoDetectCookieSupport=1

How do I open the dustbuster to clean out the end


Hi,
There should be an area to press at the joint between the front section, and the motor section. The whole front cone comes off to empty the contents, and there is a filter - but no bag with these.

Hope this helps you.
Thanks for using Fixya
