Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your Dyson cleaner is pulsating off and on. 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.

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 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:
If you need further help or advice after giving this a try, just contact our experts directly. You can reach us by calling 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) 1800 239 766 (AU), or 0800 298 0298 (UK).

Dyson V6 Animal keeps start and stopping.


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

Your Dyson V6 vacuum is designed to make a pulsing noise to warn you when something is preventing airflow from passing through the machine. This could be a blockage in the motorised floor tool, wand or bin inlet. It's also a good idea to check the bin inlet flap can open and close freely, and isn't jammed in place.

Our video support guide will walk you through the simple troubleshooting checks:


I'm confident that removing any blockages and checking the bin inlet flap will resolve the issue with your machine. But if you would like any further help, just give the Dyson Customer Helpline a call on 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) 1800 239 766 (AU), or 0800 298 0298 (UK).

Multi slim pulsing


Hi,
Looks like you've not shortage of advice on this issue. I would say that you have a thermal overload relay that is either bad, or going bad. If you don't have a warranty, you could open it up and try to find the relay and disconnect/bypass it. If this fixes the problem, do not continue to run. Immediately take the faulty relay up to Radio Shack or some other store that sells electronic components and such and replace it.
DO NOT CONTINUE TO RUN IT WITH OUT THIS RELAY, AS IT MAY RESULT IN IRREPARABLE DAMAGE TO THE UNIT OR EVEN FIRE!!!
