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.

Stops


I had the same problem when I renovated my kitchen. With boxes of stuff everywhere it was impossible to use Roomba. When I tried to use it again a few months later, it would stop after only a few minutes work. I had to buy a new battery which cost in excess of $100. Its better to loan it to a friend to be used than to put it into storage.

Plugged in the charger to my model AV-701B electric broom after not using for a few months. Charging lamp went green as soon as I plugged it in. Unplugged the unit but it will not turn on.


The same happened to me. The battery will no longer take a charge. Oreck store was of no help. Do NOT buy the new model it is poorly designed. you can find other brands in the same category at half the price and much better brands for about the same price.

Scooba 5800 Power button Red Blinking


You probably have the manual, but here's the link to the Scooba 5800 manual anyway - just in case this would be useful to you: --> http://www.irobot.com/images/homesupport/5800_Scooba_Manual.pdf You could use a voltmeter to check the battery, but only a few months use shouldn't be enough to wear it out. If you don't have a load-tester to verify the battery's load-capacity, then you can check the voltage drop. (Assuming you can get it to contact the Scooba's circuits.) To do this, just check the battery voltage, apply a load by inserting it in the machine and turning it on, then check the battery voltage again. An excessive drop in voltage may indicate the battery needs replacing. However, the red blinking light is Scooba's indicator that it doesn't detect the battery at all. The first thing to do in this case is to clean the electrical contacts on the battery and in the Scooba. Use a damp cloth and a bit of toothpaste to rub the contacts clean on the battery and in the machine. (Toothpaste has mild abrasives in it and will clean the electric contacts without damaging them.) Make sure that both the battery and the Scooba are clean and dry before re-inserting the battery. Also, if the electric contacts in the machine are flexible matal tabs then verify that the tabs are standing up high enough to make good contact with the battery contacts. Hopefully the battery just needs it's contacts cleaned for your unit to work, but test the battery if you are sure that they are clean and seated properly to the contacts in the machine. If the battery appears to be failing, then contact www.irobot.com to cheack and see if they are still covered under your machine's warranty. Hope this helps! :)
