My dyson DC 59 Motorhead works fine for a period of time then just quits. The run time seems unusually short and does not slowly lose power but stops abruptly. What is the problem?

Modern lithium Ion rechargeable batteries don't slow down as they discharge, they run full appliance and then just boom they are dead. You need a new battery

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:
