Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your Dyson cleaner is acting that way. First, it can be due to a battery of the cleaner. Make sure that the power cable is properly plug to the power and seated properly from the unit while charging. If you find that the battery isn't charging at all, you may need to replace the battery. Second is to check the MAX button of your cleaner. If the button lights up and flashes when your Dyson keeps on pulsating, press and hold the power button and depress the MAX button to turn off the function. You may need to do it for a few times to get the hang of it. Third is to check for any blockages or clogs in the attachments. Look down through the tube and check to see if there are clogs on the sweeper end or if the roller is tangled up in fibers. Clean the roller brush are if it it's necessary. You may need to empty the dust bin of your unit as debris can build up in hard to reach places. Lastly, cleaning the filters may fix the pulsating of your cleaner. Remove the filter and rinse it with cold water and air dry it for 12 hours. Don't use detergent when washing your filters. If the pulsating doesn't go with the given quick fix, I suggest to contact Dyson for further assistance on this.

Mymy v6 motorhead shuts off intermitently on high and low power. can I fix this here


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

Most Dyson vacuums have a built in safety system that stops the machine if it begins to overheat. This usually happens because the filter needs washing or your machine is blocked. If your machine turns off on its own, unplug it and leave it for at least an hour to cool down. Remember to check the filter and look for blockages before re-starting.

Dyson V6 Animal cordless does not suck very well. No blockage of any kind, and all filters have been cleaned.


Battery not fully charged possibly needs replacing. If a battery is not fully charged it will run only half speed with no suction.

My Dyson v6 animal vacuum won't charge


Hello. I have the same problem as Shelly. My Dyson will not charge. When removed form the charger the LED light flashes a few times and then stops. The motor does not run at all. When the machine is returned to the charger the same thing happens. LED light flashes , then stops! The power supply from the mains plug is live. Any ideas please? From Eleanor O'Neill.

My Dyson v6 with purple dust container, power surge whilst vacuuming and then it stops all together even though it's fully charged


Hi Sally, it's Jack at Dyson.

Your V6 machine will pulse to let you know if something is preventing airflow from passing through the machine. This could occur if there's a blockage in the floor tool, wand or bin inlet. It's also worth checking the bin inlet flap can open and close freely, and isn't jammed shut with debris.

Our video guide should help get your machine up and running again:

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:

With help from this site I replaced the fan on my Kirby Gen4. Now the motor starts slow then stalls. Is it ruined?


When the fan finally cracks and even before it spins out of balance so your motor brushes have poor and intermitent contact with the armature and could have broken the motor housing possibly damaged the field. But ruined NEVER. That machine will run 100 years :)

IRobot 530 charges intermittently


Reset the Roomba: hold down "spot" and "dock/demo" for fifteen seconds, then release and listen for the tune. Then charge the Roomba overnight. The next time you run it, the unit should run longer. If not, call support and let them know you may have a battery problem. 1-877-855-8593 (I strongly encourage you to have the Roomba with you if you call.)

Westinghouse Unplugged Vacuum Turns off after 5 Seconds.


If both batteries are behaving the same way then this is probably a charger problem. When you insert the battery pack into the charger does the 'charging' light blink for 30 minutes (fast charge) then go steady? I noticed that one of my batteries was causing the light to come on steady immediately I inserted it into the charger. When I tried to use the battery pack I got the same problem everyone else is seeing, i.e. vacuum cleaner shuts off in less than a minute, so I conclude that when the charging light is on steady then the battery is not being charged.

If the charging light does not blink when you insert the battery (i.e. comes on steady or not at all), try removing the battery and re-inserting it into the charger.

Try a conditioning cycle on your battery packs. To do this:
* Insert the battery pack into the charger
* Before the charging light lights press the 'condition' button located just above the charging light.
* The 'conditioning' light should blink. This is a light which does not normally illuminate, and it is located below the condition button and above the charging light. The charger fan will run quieter in this mode.
* Leave the battery pack in the charger for 24 hours while this cycle is taking place.

I'm not a service technician so perhaps someone else might like to post other solutions or corrections to this one.
