The Dyson DC35 (and probably other) battery packs appear to have a 15Amp fuse in the negative lead inside the battery pack. I opened my battery pack (not a job for the faint-hearted) and found the item that looks like a resistor (I'm an electronics tech) marked 15A was open circuit. I replaced it and the DC35 is working again.

If the power cells are operational and it will not start; then either the motor is dysfunctional or something is jammed in the intake module. A conduction test with instrumentation can indicate if the motor is the problem, the power cells are not fully charged, or you have a short circuit. Check Fuses.

SOURCE: Hi, this is our third Dyson DC-16.. the Trigger

How are you charging your battery? Every battery has a memory. If you dont let it die the first come times then charge to full the battery will assume 40% is 100%.

    Dc31 flashes green


    Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

    Usually if the indicator light flashes green when the trigger is pulled, this means the machine needs to be charged. If you have had your machine connected to the charger assembly for over 3.5 hours and continue to see the flashing green light, this could mean the machine isn't recharging correctly.

    In order for us to diagnose which part is at fault we'd need to take you through some simple diagnostic checks when you have your machine to hand. 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).

    We'll look forward to speaking with you.

    Light blinks when i pull trigger


    Hi Philip, it's Jack at Dyson.

    If you've recently replaced the battery and ensured it's fully charged, and you're still noticing a flashing indicator light, there may be a fault with the main body assembly.

    We'd like to take some further details to confirm if this is the case. If a replacement part is required, we can also check whether this is covered under your vacuum's 2-year warranty.

    Dyson dc31 won't charge


    Sounds like the charger is bad. It is 24vdc output, so you can check with a voltmeter. It probably blew the fuse inside since it isn't lighting the green charge light. There are replacement chargers for this for under $20.

    DC44 Animal Cordless Vacuum power cuts on and off while trigger is pulled


    This doesn't address the intermittent power cut offs...power cuts off intermittently and you have to keep recycling the power 'trigger' to get it to work...total PIA

    There is a small magnet on the pre- filter that triggers a switch. Pull it apart and you'll see the magnet but the switch is behind plastic.. Make sure it is seated well against the motor unit.
