Question about Dyson Dc 16 Root Handheld Vacuum Cleaner
My handheld Dyson dc 16 cuts out every 3-5 seconds. Rarely it works for a maximum of 1-2 minutes. I can see lots of people have the same problem, but I cannot find the solution. What can I do to fix it myself?
Hi Bente, it's Jack at Dyson.
DC16 was the first Dyson handheld vacuum, launched back in 2006. It would have come with a 2-year guarantee, but due to its age it's likely that this has expired now.
However, our experts would be happy to take you through some quick diagnostic checks when you have your machine to hand. This will help determine which part may be at fault - and therefore, what may need replacing to resolve the issue.
If you would like some advice, you can reach our team of experts directly by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Yes I had the same problem on my animal Dysom. There is a button on the top of the dysom that turns the cacuum on. Right beside that button is another one that turns on and off the brush!!! Good luck!!! I accidently one day bumped that button and couldn't get my brush to work but after troubleshooting it, that was my solution.

hello, have you checked to make sure you have nothing wraped around the brushes ? also it sounds like your belt needs to be replaced.

Have you tried calling Dyson? I had a problem with my Animal, and their tech department talked me though the fix. Worth trying them first.

SOURCE: Hello, what is the significance
yes the reason the green and red light were flashing the way they are is because its a warning to you that the battery is either no longer good or there is problems with your wireing. Also those vaccumes were designed to not charge when there to cold or to hot as a saftey issue.
