Hi I know what you mean! My B&D dust buster used to do this too. The hi power boost means that it can only be used for a limited amount of time. Due to the age of the dust buster though its a sign that the battery is on its way out and regardless of whether or how long its been used or not used, batteries can lose power regardless.
Try to let the dust buster completely lose power and then charge it up for its initial burn in period of 14 hours. Also clean the connection metal strips or hole with a dry cotton bud incase there's any static or dust. Then see if it lasts longer. If the turbo mode or speed 2 is still short, then the battery is dying out.
I don't know where you are but in the UK its hard to get battery replacements for B&D products. You could check your local seller where you are if they have battery replacements but at the cost of current dustbusters it may make more economic sense to consider buying a new dustbuster.

My phv 1800 doesn't have any vacuum power any longer. I have kept the filters cleaned and emptied. It is still under warranty. What can i do


Good afternoon,

There could be a few different problems with the vacuum, some more serious than others. The great thing is that the unit is still under warranty. My advice would be to contact your local B & D Service Center:
"All Black & Decker Service Centers are staffed with trained personnel to provide customers
with efficient and reliable power tool service. Whether you need technical advice, repair, or
genuine factory replacement parts, contact the Black & Decker location nearest you. To find
your local service location, refer to the yellow page directory under "Tools-Electric" or call:
1-800-544-6986 or visit http://www.blackanddecker.com/."

For further reference, please view a free copy of your manual here:
http://www.manualsonline.com/mdownloads/4fef4018-4fd3-48fc-a346-699c326a1b92.pdf

I hope this starts you out on the right foot. Please rate this solution!

Thanks,
~PCF

My phv1800 18 volt hand vac's battery seems to be running down. is there any way to revive it? if not; can i purchase a new battery to replace it? thank you!


If you are handy with a soldering iron, and don't mind spending a few hours building a new battery pack using 1.2 volt "sub c" cells, you can disassemble the PHV1800, and rebuild the pack yourself. I just did it tonight, and the vacuum works like new.

However, I'm not going to do this again. The PHV1800 doesn't use a single battery pack, but 2 packs that have to be assembled with very little room for error. You can purchase a combination battery pack/motor assembly for $75 (US currency, price currect as of 10/2011), unscrew the screws that hold the vacuum together, and replace the battery/motor unit as one.

My brand new B&D PHV1800 handvac does not charge up after 1 use. Could the battery be dead already?


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
This can be caused due to one of the following reasons.

Bad Charger or the Charging IC!
Dead or Weak battery.
Loose contact of charger pin with the socket.

If you have purchased a new unit, then you can go for a warranty claim in case the problem in not solved at user end.

Best of Luck,
Concerned,

Won't recharge. very weak.


Hello,

If you know that the charger is actually working and supplying the correct voltage.Then the age of the unit would suggest that the battery is exhausted and it would be cheaper to replace the whole unit.

Hope this was a help.
