Is the battery replaceable? It will no longer take a charge. I did take it to a local hardware store and they are the ones that advised it is the battery that is not accepting the charge as opposed to the charger not functioning. Thanks for your help

Re: rechargeable battery does not recharge
They are nickel cadminum batteries, and are replaceable, you may have to order from a repair shop, or go thehooverstore.com. Once you have the battery pack out, maybe you can find them like at Radio Shack or other places that sell these type packs,

The battery is probably no longer rechargeable due to age or to the number of times it has been recharged. If the battery can not be replaced, then the entire vacuum needs to be replaced with a new one.
Once the green light goes off, it's done charging. Since it was first charge I know they say to charge it 8? hours (or 4? don't recall right offhand) but it does come charged (that's part of how they make the batteries). What you do want to do is remember not to always recharge it when your done using it. Use it till the battery goes flat, then recharge it; it will give you a longer battery life that way.
Normally a battery flashing is an indication that the battery either needs to be replaced or is low and needs to be recharged (if it's rechargeable)
Bear in mind that rechargeable batteries, such as those used in the robot-controlled vacuums do not have an infinite life. There will come a time when it will no longer take (or hold) a charge and have to be replaced. If this is your situation, take the vacuum (along with the charging station) over to a place called "BATTERIES PLUS BULBS" (there are stores all over the US) - these guys can very often rebuild the battery pack for less than half the cost of replacing it.
hi right to be honest both ways are correct, but if your using it every day then its best to put it back on the charger after every use, but the problem with this is that the battery never goes totally flat, so never does a full recharge this reduces the life of the battery by upto 50% so if you are using it regular and need it charged daily then its best to once a month let the battery go totally flat so that it wont even make a sound then do a full recharge. Doing this will ensure the battery remains at peak performance and make it last longer.
If how ever your only using it say once a week then its best to only charge after the battery has gone flat due to the fact that it would remain on charge longer and cause the battery to over heat reducing the life span of the battery.
But witch ever method you use always let the battery go totally flat once a month then do full recharge this will prolong the life of the battery and ensure it keeps working at full power.
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.
Battery needs to be replaced. All rechargeable batteries have limited recharge cycles. NiCad's are usually used in these and also develop "memory' which keeps them from recharging fully.
Contact Oreck or reputable dealer for replacement.
Hi, try looking on ebay, user name; itl-e. His shop name is; Component-shop. A wide range of batteries supplied including a 6V 5AH which sells for about £8 including p&p. Your Panasonic battery is rated at 6V 4.2AH, so the replacement will last slightly longer between charges. If you want an exact (Panasonic) replacement, try putting "Panasonic LC-R064R2CH into google. Hpoe this helps! Bob.
http://geeksquad.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=0&thid=730257 Generic problem for all Vacuums I have a Dirt Devil Posted by maryk813 on Jul 02, 2008 I have a Dirt Devil Broom Vac that won't hold a charge. I need to replace the rechargeable battery. Is there a dealer near Bartlett, TN that can do that or would I be able to do it myself if I bought a new battery? Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The only place that I know if to contact the Royal factory cust serv line listed below or to check the website and they may direct you to a local dealer in your area. All you would need is a new rechargeable battery and you can do it yourself. The problem that I see is that the new rechargeable battery may cost as much as a new vacuum if you consider the part plus shipping and handling. So, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions. http://royalvacuums.com/Customer Service 1-800-321-1134 Hours are: 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM(EST) Thanks, Don the Vac Man Go Ahead.
