Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty charging your DC44. We're unable to specify an exact lifespan for the battery as this will depend on how each individual machine is used and maintained. But we would expect the battery to last for at least the 2-year guarantee period in normal use.

When you have your machine easily to hand, I would encourage you to get in touch with us directly so our experts can talk you through some diagnostic checks to help us confirm which part is at fault. If a replacement part is needed, we can also check that this is covered under your 2-year Dyson guarantee.

You can reach us by calling 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.

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.

    There is a red blinking light on my dyson when I first plug it in to be charged. Please advise

    First, I'm not a Dyson Tech, but I have worked on battery operated recharge devices.
    * Is this new or second hand? Most chargers for any device will blink red if the charge on battery is so low that the charger will not recognize the battery. If so (old battery) then got to get a replacement (New) battery.
    Aloha, ukeboy57
    FYI there is a slight possible fix for this old battery. But it's a long shot. Check on you tube on your specific battery "save ________ dead battery." (you force charge it to a reasonable level. But you didn't hear it from me ;-)

    I have a Dyson vacuum cleaner cordless and is not charging the red light is blinking but there's no green light we have had it for about a year and a use it every day usually twice a day

    An issue with the battery may lead to the charger not detecting, nor attempting to charge the battery. I've solved this in the past by leaving things on charge for an extended period of time (sometimes days at a time, but with frequent checks that it's not getting too hot), but your mileage may vary.

    Worst case scenario, you may need a new battery or a new charger. You can buy cheap replacement chargers from China for under 10 dollars, but a battery may set you back more. I suggest buying a genuine Dyson battery if you can; a charger isn't as important to remain genuine.

    Definitely look into whether you're still covered by warranty, as I know Dyson offer some pretty hefty after sales support these days (some 5+ years). If you are, give them a call and see if they can help.

    Dyson DC35 doesn't work. when I press power button, only green blinking light is showen.

    Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

    I'm sorry to hear your DC35 is currently displaying a slow flashing light when you pull the trigger. In order to determine what's causing the issue, our experts would need to talk you through some simple diagnostic checks when you have your machine easily to hand.

    When it's convenient for you, please give the Dyson Customer Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU). If a replacement part is needed, we'll also be able to confirm whether this is covered under your Dyson warranty.

    We'll look forward to speaking with you.
