SOURCE: power button not engaging...vacuum will not stay

The power button is worn out and needs to be replaced. That vacuum is pretty simple. So even if you don't know how to take it apart it shouldn't cost much to have it repaired.

SOURCE: I have a Dyson vacuum. The vacuum won't stay

My vacuum had this exact same problem, but was out of warranty because it was remanufactured. Thankfully, it's a very quick, five-minute fix.

  1. UNPLUG The Vacuum!
  2. Remove the cannister.
  3. Extend the handle and remove it.
  4. Remove the two torx (T-15) screws behind the power button, where the handle normally stows.
  5. There are four tabs holding the front plate containing the power button on; use your screwdriver to release them.
  6. Gently pull the front plate off.
  7. The switch on the right is the power button. Remove it, try clicking it a few times; if it sticks, great! Replace it and reassemble, otherwise you'll need to replace it.

Dyson v6 surges on and off


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of things you need to do that may solve the issue you're having with your vacuum. First, make sure that your battery is charging and working. Second, check the MAX button. If the MAX button lights up and flashes when your Dyson cordless vacuum keeps pulsating on and off, hold the power button and depress the MAX button to turn off that function. You may have to try a few times to get the hang of it. And lastly, look for any blockages in attachments because the pulsating is caused by a lack of airflow as the motor is protecting itself by pulsating and then ultimately cutting out.

You can check this video tutorial which will teach you on how you may fix it:

The V6 seems to be permanently on 'Max'


Hi Sandy, it's Jack at Dyson.

Our V6 cord-free vacuums have two power modes. There's regular high power for day to day vacuuming tasks, and Max mode for tackling really stubborn dirt, clinging pet hair etc.

To change between modes, you need to hold down the red on/off trigger so the vacuum is running. Then at the same time, press and release the illuminated Max button on the rear of the main body. You'll hear a change in the sound the motor makes when you switch between modes:

Recently purchased a Dyson V6 Cordless Vacuum, which has fallen several times now. Since the last fall when pushing down on the power button the noise is intermittent. Why is this?


Hi Julia, it's Jack at Dyson.

Just to make you aware, accidental damage resulting from a drop or a fall would not be covered under your Dyson warranty, so please take care to avoid this wherever possible.

If your Dyson V6 pulses on and off when you hold the trigger down, the motor is signalling that something is blocking airflow from passing through the machine. There could be an obstruction inside the floor tool, wand or bin inlet - but it's also worth checking the flap inside the bin inlet. The flap opens and shuts to prevent debris from escaping, but it's possible it could have jammed shut when the machine fell. Our video guide may help:

I can't the the max mode to turn off. How do I fix this?


Hi Kayla, it's Jack at Dyson.

To switch between Max mode and regular mode, first hold down the red on/off trigger, so the vacuum is running. Then at the same time, press and release the Max button on the rear of the machine. The machine is designed in this way to make Max button can't be activated accidentally. When running in Max mode, the button will light up.

How do i turn on boost


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

In Boost mode, DC59 offers 100 airwatts of suction to tackle really stubborn dirt or clinging pet hair. To activate Boost mode, just hold down the on/off trigger so the vacuum is running, then press and release the Boost button on the rear of the vacuum. To change back to regular power, you would follow the same procedure - holding down the trigger and pressing the Boost button a second time.
