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

This is (unfortunately) common with DC16 --- check to see if the red lights flash when it stops -- this is the "no filter" warning shut off. I have been living with this problem for about 3 years. Fix: remove the main filter (blue flexible plastic thing) -- note the small cylindrical metal magnet near the bottom --- it is not close enough to the sensor (sensor is buried in plastic body) . Try folding some paper and wedge it behind the filter to force the magnet closer to the sensor -- this can be done but required a bit of patience.

SOURCE: Dyson dc44 animal when you connect the charger it charges for about 30 seconds then the light goes out and it will then run for only about 10 seconds

It's only a few months old though! And I have lost the receipt. Looks like I'll be buying a new one, thanks though.

Dyson V6 animal powerhead starts and stops does not run continuously

Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

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

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,

Dyson Online Customer Support
