SOURCE: Not holding charge

Ok, folks.. I just posted my own problem with the battery not holding it's charge..but, we fixed it ourselves.. take the motor loose from the canister , remove the filter and in the back are two contacts.they are two screws at the bottom one on each side... get out your pencil with a GOOD eraser and clean those contacts!..clean around them both and the contact (silver spot at the bottom) and you're good to go!!

    I have a Dyson DC16 handheld and the battery does not hold a charge.


    I have the same vaccumm with the same problem, went back to exchange it and the same thing happened, I usually get about 10-15 minutes non stop out of the battery, I read that the battery memorizes the first charged time and then will only charge for that long. Did you happen to charge it 24 hrs?

    My handheld dyson is not working - initially it was cutting out after only a few mins then seconds now it won't work at all despite showing green light ??


    Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

    I'm sorry to hear your DC31 Animal is only working intermittently. When fully charged, this machine should have a maximum runtime of 10 minutes, or 6 minutes on the maximum power setting.

    There are several factors which could cause this, and to determine what's at fault we'd need to take you through some quick diagnostic checks when you have your machine to hand. The machine would also need to be fully charged, so please make sure it's had 3.5 hours to recharge before calling us.

    You can reach our freephone customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US). Our experts will be happy to help further.

    Best wishes,

    I bought Dyson DC16 in 2008. Charged full but it only last for 1 minuet. Should I get a new charger? Is Dyson going to send me a new charger?


    Your battery is losing voltage too quick. It has probably developed a 'memory'. Dyson claims that their handheld has the best suction out of all the handhelds out there. In order to maintain that claim the circuit board will shut off power to the motor when the voltage drops below adequate charge for full suction.
    We need someone who can teach us to bypass that part of the circuit so it won't cut power to the motor or you need to get a new battery.
    Shorting the battery like an Aircraft battery then re-charging won't fix it.

    Fully charged, filters cleaned, vacuum keeps shutting down in and then starts again only to shut off again. the 6 minute time limit is not used up.
