Removing the battery

Can't figure out how to remove the battery from the Dyson DC16 Root 6 handheld vacuum? Did not get an owner's manual/guide in the box with the vacuum.

    Pushing down on the release didn't work until we finally got a screw driver to give us added leverage and pressure and were finally able to get it released.

The battery is located at the bottom of the handle. To release it, press and hold down the button on top of the battery case (it has 3 ridges on it). That releases a catch and you can then slide the battery out to the rear.

How do I remove battery from hand held vacuum?


Hi Alan, it's Jack at Dyson.

If you own a Dyson DC16 handheld vacuum, the battery removes at the push of a button. Press the catch and pull the battery away from the machine horizontally. If you're fitting a replacement battery, this will attach to the machine in the same way.

If you own a different model of Dyson handheld vacuum, please reply to confirm which model you have so we can provide further advice.

Alternatively, if you'd prefer you're welcome to call our experts directly on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

How to disassemble a dyson dc16


The Dyson manual is here ( Dyson DC16 User Manual Page 2 ). If you're wanting to go further than just undoing areas to clear clogs, or, say, to do a super deep clean-out, then you may need to look around for specifics. There are videos out there on some deep inner checks, but I didn't have any luck on tear down guides.

Good Luck

Root 6 sill not shut off


Hi there Mike, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC16 handheld. If you've found a replacement battery has not resolved the issue with your machine, there may be a fault with the main body assembly.

We'd be happy to take you through some quick diagnostic checks to help confirm what may be causing the fault. You can reach our experts directly on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

If it is within the warranty period get Dyson to replace it. If not, live with it until it fails completely, then buy a Hoover. Your computer board is starting to fail. That's not repairable.

Where can I find a manual for the DC 16 to download as PDF? I can't find a site to do this at! Thanks!


The manual is available at the Dyson site. There are several DC16 handheld vacuums: http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?model=SUP-DC16&article=1374 . The direct link to the Root 6 manual is http://media.dyson.com/downloads/us/floorcare/manuals/dc16_opmanual_usa.pdf . If the direct link doesn't work, start at the first link that I provided. Then click on the Root 6 and then the User's manual will be the first link under Maintaining your Dyson product.

I hope this helps.
