SOURCE: DC 17 Animal No suction on hand held hose

There is likely a blockage in the pipe. Try pushing something through taking care not to perforate the pipe.

SOURCE: my dc 16 rechargeable vacuum won't work

far as i know the dyson dc 16 root 6 vacuum uses a lithium ion battery with a charge of 21.6 volts. it could be that either your battery isnt storing the right amount of power anymore and you may need to replace it. check on the specifications to confirm how much volts the battery is supposed to have. too little volts may be enough for things like lights to switch on, but not enough for the motor to start up.

SOURCE: I have a dyson hand held that shuts off after just

yeap..... i just found a fix for this ,, its mad how easy it is to fix as well...and it works 100%,,,
now dyson implemented a filter magnetic switch if u take your filter off you will see a small magnet in the corner,, u will notice where the magnet is behind it is rased platic,, now,,that the problem on the main board the transistor that picks up magentic signal from the filter is dud,!
dont ask me why it happens,, its a pain i know.,.
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,,

A

B C

SOLDER AND A+C WITH A FINE PIECE OF WIRE NOW,, AND WALLAH... fixed put it all back together again,,, charge the battery,, and your away,,, working again,, if not u have other faults.. but 99% fix this with flashing red led,,,!!

SOURCE: Hi my dyson hand held

take it apart and look for some trash might be rapped around the motor,because if the motor heats up it will shut down to keep it from burning up

My dyson shuts off after just a few seconds of run time.


Make sure the charger is operating. Then if it is, look at a failed battery.

Runs for a few seconds, then stops


Hi Bente, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC16 was the first Dyson handheld vacuum, launched back in 2006. It would have come with a 2-year guarantee, but due to its age it's likely that this has expired now.

However, our experts would be happy to take you through some quick diagnostic checks when you have your machine to hand. This will help determine which part may be at fault - and therefore, what may need replacing to resolve the issue.

If you would like some advice, you can reach our team of experts directly by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

My DC 16 will only run for a second each trigger pull. The battery is fully charged, it has plenty of suction, just wont run for more than a second. I cleaned the filters.


I had the same problem with my Dyson DC16, where it only runs for a few seconds at a time with each trigger pull. My husband called Dyson (Canada) and without hassle they shipped us a replacement part which I just received this morning. The replacement part sent to us is: DC16 Main Body with Rating Plate. It is also under warranty for 1 year. The great customer service makes up for the flaw in the machine. Also, Dyson is aware of the problem. Hope this helps.

Motor running good but the water isn't coming out of either the bottom or the hand held tool


make sure your recovery tank is pushed down snug,somtimes it just need to prime itself,I had the same problem with my hand held tool, and that seemed to do the trick,after it pushed down,turn on power then wait about 10 seconds then turn on heater. I hoped this helped.
