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.

Brand new first charge The green light on the charger plug goes off after a short time. Is the unit still charging?

Once the green light goes off, it's done charging. Since it was first charge I know they say to charge it 8? hours (or 4? don't recall right offhand) but it does come charged (that's part of how they make the batteries). What you do want to do is remember not to always recharge it when your done using it. Use it till the battery goes flat, then recharge it; it will give you a longer battery life that way.

Max is on

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

From what you've described, it sounds as if the battery may not be charged. If your machine has been allowed to recharge for over 5.5 hours but still has no power, there may be an issue with the battery or the charger. However in order to confirm this, and to help resolve the issue, we'd need to take you through some further diagnostic checks over the phone when you have the machine to hand.

When you have a moment, please give the Dyson Customer Helpline a call - you can reach us on 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.

Dyson dc31 won't charge

Sounds like the charger is bad. It is 24vdc output, so you can check with a voltmeter. It probably blew the fuse inside since it isn't lighting the green charge light. There are replacement chargers for this for under $20.
