Need a charging base for a Black&Decker CHV7200 DustBuster

Several years ago, my 90+ year old father bought what he thought was a brand new, complete Black&Decker CHV7200-AC DustBuster, but in fact only the handheld unit was in the box. It was a discount store. There was no charging base or charger in the box, so of course there was no way for him to plug it in.

He got on the phone -- my parents don't have an Internet connection -- and told some helpful person that he needed a charger. They directed him to the local DeWalt service center, where he was sold the charger. The charger only, no base. It's a plug-in transformer with twin bare leads, tinned for soldering into a circuit on a charger base that still doesn't exist.

He doesn't know how to solder. I do. I figured I'd find the base at some parts supplier on-line, but I've found nothing. Can you help? I need the charging base for the CHV7200. I appreciate any assistance you can send my way. Thanks.

Jim

1-year old dustbuster black decker cwv1408 will not run unless I slap it on left side.


Your description would suggest either loose wire or a short in the switch. Take the unit apart and check to see that battery terminals are tightly connected.

Our black and decker 14.4 Dustbuster is functioning but the charger does not shot its light that will indicate of charging. we dont know if the charger is not working or just the charge light is the one...


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.

Does not hold charge. Strong for about a minute and it dies off. It is not very old so I can't believe its the battery. Shouln't they last long? Thanks for your help.


If the unit itself is under a year I would take it back to the store. It sounds like the unit is not charging properly which you already know. Check to see if you actually have charge coming out of your charger. Usually there is a charge light. Is it bright when charging? If you have a volt meter you can check the voltage coming out of the charger to verify if there is indeed voltage coming out. Let me know what you discover.

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.

Is not charging - no red light


Yes, it can be replaced. Can be ordered from Black & Decker. Some people would say it's worth fixing others would not. Don't know cost of battery -- probably under $20.

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.
