Black and Decker Hand Vacuum (CHV 9600); mike Mills

Hi. We own a hand vaccum ( Model CHV 9600 ). The charger light doesn't come on sat the back of the unit. The unit seems to be holding charge, however. Is it possible that the light is malfunctioning and that the battery pack and charger are o.k? It seems most likely that the charger is malfunctioning.

What do you think??

If it seems to be taking a charge, then the charger and the battries are ok and the problem is with the indicator light. So if it is working normally, I wouldn't worry about that light.

Hello Karen, It sounds as though may have a bad battery or the charger is shutting down before the battery gets fully charged.

Sounds like it could be a bad battery pack that's not accepting a charge.

The blue light doesn't stay on. What do I do?

Hi Alec from VacuumSpot here. In Australia these are sold as the ergo rapido. The most likely culprit is the charger itself we sell loads of Electrolux Ergo Rapido Chargers basically the best bet is to measure the output of the charger to see if it is working properly (watch video) if it isnt then simply replace the charger. If it is then replace the vacuum handset - Electrolux have made the handsets real cheap so you dont have to do a repair on battery or motor.

We ran our Platinum Series 18 volt hand vac until it stopped -- charged the battery overnight but it did not charge. is there a problem with the battery charger or what could cause this?

Most problems with what you have stated have to do with bad contacts between the hand held unit and the battery charger. With the charger unplugged, make sure the contacts on both the charger and hand held unit are clean and not bent. Check to see what the "Light Indicator" should be when charging and reinsert the unit into the charger. If the light does not show what it is supposed to show, move the hand held unit around a bit to see if you can make the connection better.
If this does not do the job, depending on the age of the unit, might be time to replace the battery.

I have the vacuum on the charger and the charger is plugged into the wall but i cannot make it work. Please advise thanks,

The battery is probably not taking a charge anymore. And I don't think that you can get a battery replacement for this model

I'm not sure what bag your referring to. The only bag for this is the carrying bag. So I have to assume you mean one of the filters.
There are three filters for this vacuum.
  • Primary Filter.
  • Exhaust Filter.
  • Secondary Filter Element.
I have included a link to a site that carries the replacement parts and a diagram of the vacuum.
Hope this helps.
On another note If it doesn't help I really don't feel to bad because I'm in Detroit Michigan. And I'd rather have a dozen useless vacuums hanging out in New Zealand any day. :)
Find me a job there and I'll buy you a new vacuum. :)
