The Dyson v6 goes in 5 second spurts then stops, then goes again. Does this 3-4 times then stops altogether. The battery is fully charged. Why does it do this?

Hi, this happens when the PCB detects a blockage. Take the filter out and then try it. If it no longer goes for only 5 seconds then your filter needs washed. Wash the filter in your washing machine .

SOURCE: I have the same problem as steve967 The dyson

Dear Michael_Stad,

I am going to sound like a broken record but here is my same answer to another person with the same problem.

I have 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.

After two years the batteries are probably no longer holding a charge and need to be replaced.

I have a dyson V6 Mot?rhead model Ju4-us-GBR7075 My machine when I push the power button the machine stops and goes


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.

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:

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:

Dyson v6: It looks like it stopped charging.


If it's only 2 weeks old, you could have a defective either charging system or just a bad battery. Most places offer free replacement within 30 days of purchase. I would take it back to your place of original purchase. I hope that helps!

When I plug it in to charge the blue charging light comes on for 2 or 3 minutes then goes out and charging stops. Have I blown the charger by constantly leaving it plugged in? Please help!


Hi Alvina, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC59 will display a blue indicator light at the base of the hand grip while the machine is taking in power. The light will go out when the machine is fully charged. DC59 will take 3.5 hours to charge fully when the charge is completely depleted, but it will take less time than this if there is still some charge remaining on the battery after use.

Please note, the machine's intelligent control software is designed to ensure the battery only takes in enough power to recharge, and to keep itself topped up. It's safe to leave the machine connected to the charger at all times when not in use - the machine is designed to be stored in this way, so it's always ready to go when you need it.

From the information you've provided, I'm not clear on whether or not you're finding your DC59 works as normal once the blue charging light goes out, or whether it's not working at all. To make sure everything is correct, please get in touch with our experts directly. We'll be happy to talk you through some simple diagnostic checks when you have your machine easily to hand.

You can reach the Dyson Customer Helpline by calling 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) 1800 239 766 (AU), or 0800 298 0298 (UK).

We'll look forward to speaking with you.
