According to B&D, the nicad battery can be replaced & disposed of at a DeWalt Factory Service Center; call ahead for battery availability. Also, for DIY folks, peruse the instruction manual at http://www.dewaltservicenet.com/documents/English/Instruction%20Manual/90500564.pdf

My 9.6v DustBuster doesn't hold a charge


Does the charge light come on when you plug in the charger? If not, the charger or cord is probably bad. If it seems to charge but you're not getting as much time as you used to, the battery probably needs to be replaced. Check your warranty and call dustbuster or go online to purchase a new battery. Another alternative, especially if it is out of warranty is to take the unit to a Batteries Plus store and have them replace the battery.

I have Dyson dc16 vacuum and it doesn't want to charge. Once I put it on charge the red led is on, but in 30 sec it start flashing. Manual says it means the battery is out of t° range, but it's not.


every possibility is that the battery is out of temp range and that is determined by the current flow from the charger
If the battery is faulty , the charge rate is out of parameters and the charger unit reads that as out of temp range
Take the charger and the battery to an accredited battery shop and have them both checked out
If still under warranty take them both to an accredited service agent for the test and warranty replacement

When I put the battery on the charger the light on the charger stays on for little awhile the it starts to blink, but when I try to use the battery it is not charged. So I am not sure if I need a new


Hi there! It sounds like you have our Linx stick vacuum or hand vacuum model. Plug only the charger into an outlet, the blue light on the charger should flash once. If the light on the charger flashes once then the charger is fine. Try resetting the battery by following these quick steps below.

1. Remove the battery from charger or cleaner
2. Unplug the charger
3. Insert the battery into the vacuum and turn the unit on for 30 seconds (even if it has no power)
4. Remove the battery
5. Plug the charger into an outlet, make sure the light on charger blinks blue once.
6. Insert battery into charger

The light should be a solid blue, indicating the battery reset worked. If so, allow the battery to charge for 3-4 hours, completely deplete battery on your next use and re-charge. If the light on the charger is still blinking, your battery will need to be replaced. I have included a link where you may go to purchase a replacement battery if needed. Hope this helps!

Why doesn't my battery charge? Why doesn't the charger's light come on?


Hi Suzanne! Follow these steps to check that your charger and battery are working properly.

1. Unplug the charger for at least 30 seconds.
2. Plug the charger back in. The blue light on the charger should flash once.

If the blue light flashes once this is an indication that the charger is still functioning properly. If the blue light does not flash, the charger will need to be replaced. Follow this link to order a replacement charger. LiNX Battery Charger

3. Place the battery in the vacuum and turn it on for 30 seconds. (even if it does not turn on or powers off)
4. Turn the vacuum off.
5. Remove the battery and place it in the charger.

If the light on the charger is solid blue this is an indication that the battery has been reset. Allow 3-4 hours for the battery to fully charge. The blue light will start to blink slowly to indicate the battery is fully charged.

If the light on the charger is flashing blue or there is no light at all this can mean that your battery needs to be replaced. Follow the link to order a replacement battery. LiNX Lithium Ion Battery

Hope this helps!

Hoover linx battery, charger or unit itself?


As a former owner of one, my suggestion is that it be discarded rather than repaired.

We ran our Platinum Series 18 volt hand vac until it stopped -- charged the battery overnight but it did not charge. is there a problem with the battery charger or what could cause this?


Most problems with what you have stated have to do with bad contacts between the hand held unit and the battery charger. With the charger unplugged, make sure the contacts on both the charger and hand held unit are clean and not bent. Check to see what the "Light Indicator" should be when charging and reinsert the unit into the charger. If the light does not show what it is supposed to show, move the hand held unit around a bit to see if you can make the connection better.
If this does not do the job, depending on the age of the unit, might be time to replace the battery.

My battery charger unit has stated to get hot while charging, is this a fault with the charger or the batteries. I would appreciate you advice


If the charger is left connected without the connection to the battery for several hours and there is no heat on the charger, then it is possible that the battery is using up more charging current .
This results in heating of the unit for the large current delivery.
Checck your battery if the back up has dropped down, if so it is confirmed to change the battery.
Hope this advice helps

Short time for use


Likely your battery has failed and you need to replace the unit. If you have test meter you can test the charger output to see if it matches the rating on the outside of the case, Rechargeable batteries fail from being dropped, or charged continually especially if they are not run down to zero before recharging. You can try to drain the battery fully then recharge overnight as a test.
