Question about Dyson V8 Absolute Bagless Cordless Stick Vacuum

Open Question

Dyson v8 doesn't seem to be holding a charge. When we turn it on after charging the motor just "chugs" it sounds like it is running then goes off and keeps doing that.

SOURCE: Not holding charge

Ok, folks.. I just posted my own problem with the battery not holding it's charge..but, we fixed it ourselves.. take the motor loose from the canister , remove the filter and in the back are two contacts.they are two screws at the bottom one on each side... get out your pencil with a GOOD eraser and clean those contacts!..clean around them both and the contact (silver spot at the bottom) and you're good to go!!

now take off collection pot for dust now take battery off.

now where the serial number is theres 2 hex screws that need taking out..

now u will see a small pcb board.. remove with one tiny security screw holding it in,, once removed pull both red plug off thats the digital motor plug.. and white plug which is vcc..to battery,, once u have done this pull the board down and back gently. as there is a long bit of board that goes up the back of the dyson plastic be very carefull pull this out.. now the long and thin pcb board that is hidden is what we need there is a tiny transistor,,, we need to remove this carefully..once removed,, we solder a thin wire from 2 point A+C need to be soldered together with a thin piece of wire, it will not harm the motor.. as long as u keep it clean,,

these points corolate to the transistor,,

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.

    The brushes on my Dyson V6 sweeper attachment won't turn although it is fully charged.


    Your battery may indicate fully charged but if dead it will do that and not work for squat. If charged the motor should run and turn the sweeper with power. If motor runs but sweeper does not check for a stretched belt or one that may have fallen off the pulley.

    Must I use the wall mount to charge the Dyson V8?


    always charge any item that comes with its own charger that way you can not damage it by trying to charge it another way.
    there is always other ways to charge things up but its best to use what it come with (more so for safety reasons)

    What is the main difference between the basic dyson v6 and v8 vacuum?


    Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

    The main difference between the V6 and V8 Dyson models is the mprovements in power and run time of the unit. The Dyson V6 has the V6 motor that pumps out 24 air watts in normal mode. In max mode that number goes up to 100 air watts. While the Dyson V8 comes equipped with the latest V8 digital motor that produces almost 20% more power than the V6 motor. It has the same 2-tier radial cyclones that capture fine dust and allergens. A post-motor HEPA filter keeps those allergens inside the bin. There is also the Bin improvement as Dyson was able to increase the capacity to 0.14 gallons for Dyson V8. This is around 0.03 gallons bigger than the V6.

    When I press the trigger the green light comes on but motor does not


    Hi Peter, it's Jack at Dyson.

    From what you're describing, it does sound as if your DC35 needs to be recharged. When the machine is charging, the LED on the charger will illuminate, but the LED on the machine itself will not. When the LED on the charger goes out, the machine is fully charged - this will take 3.5 hours from depleted.

    Please try connecting your DC35 to the charger cord and allowing it at least 3.5 hours to charge until the LED on the charger goes out, then test your machine. If it's still not running at this point, we will need to talk you through some simple diagnostic checks when you have your machine to hand. This will help determine whether there's an issue with the main body, battery or the charger itself.

    You can reach our experts by calling the Dyson Customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

    Dyson dc44 making a stop start chugging noise


    You should take it to your local vacuum repair shop and have them listen to it. It sounds like it could be your motor burning up.

    Loss of suction


    Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.
    I'm sorry to hear you've had difficulty with your DC44 Animal. It's normal for air to blow out of the back of the machine - this is where the exhaust air is returned to the room after passing through the cyclone pack.
    However, if your machine doesn't seem to be picking up as well as usual and you've recently washed the filter, this may be due to a blockage. To check the motorised carbon fibre floor tool, wand and bin inlet for any obstructions, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide:
    http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc44/dc44-animal/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-picking-up-as-well-as-usual-dc44/no-resolved-redirect-to-check-the-wand/check-wand
    The motorised carbon fibre floor tool is driven by it's own motor, rather than the machine's airflow. If it isn't rotating, the video attached should help you locate anything which could be jamming the brush bar. Make sure you remove any threads or hair from around the brush bar carefully using scissors, taking care to avoid causing any damage to the bristles.
    I'm confident this will resolve the issue, but if you would like some further help you can reach the Dyson customer Helpline directly by calling us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

    Dyson dc04 motor runs but has no suction.


    I would make sure it is the motor first by isolating the sounds to just the motor. Take off the dirt cup, both filters, and belt, then run it and see if the sound is still there. If it is, you need a new motor. If it isn't, you need to look for a clog, or bad roller bearing.

    To take the motor out first undo the wiring running down the backside of the unit inside of the switch housing. Then take the four screws out that hold the outer motor housing on, and the rest pops apart. Once you get inside, the gaskets make it a really tight fit, so you might have to hit the motor shaft with a rubber mallet to get it out and use penetrating oil on the bottom gasket to get the new motor to slide back in.

    I guess there is no easy explanation. Let me know how it goes.
