    I have the same problem. The vacuum will run for a few seconds then it pretty much dies out. Almost immediately after pushing the poweer button, the red light near the power saver option comes on and the machinge starts to wind down. I have two of these vacuums and four batteries. Both vacuums do the same thing no matter which battery I try.

    Batteries need replace. Only last about three years. Don't know how long product was sitting on shelf before i purchased. Maybe 2 1/2 years. I can't find parts anywhere. I called there 800 number on the back of the battery and was given another 800 number then was told they can't find this vacuum model number so they can't help me.

Take the battery apart and then replace the individual cells. I'm going to try using Nickel Metal batteries on mine. i'll let you know how it works out.

Have you tryed cycling the batteries? This usually solves this problem and needs to be done every 3 months or so.

My vacuum won't turn on or charge. How can I fix this?

Find an electrical tester and see if the charger is charging when it is plugged in.
If the charger is charging, there is a rechargeable battery inside your vacuum, which may have "died".
That battery may or may not be replaceable.
God bless your efforts.

Here is a copy of the manual for your vacuum

What could be the problem is the battery could be shot after not being used for so many years that the life of the battery is done. I would recommend taking it to a local vacuum store and have them take a look at the connections between where the battery goes and the motor.

Vacuum Cleaner never worked

these cordless units are no more than a broom. toss it out and go buy a real vacuum with a cord. FYI cheap vacuums are cheap vacuums. if you want something to last a do a great job you have to put out a little more money for it.

I am looking for a battery for a westinghouse model wst1600a

I too was looking for a battery for the WST1500a. I took the charger and a defective battery pack to BATTERIES PLUS. They rebuilt the pack with new fresh and fully charaged batteries in a short time. The result was good and better then a new battery pack that had been sitting on a store's shelf for 5 years. The advantage is that they are new batteries with a correct charage. The cost was about 75 dollars.

BATTERIES PLUS is a chain and are available in many large cities.

If you need a new "case" for the batteries so you can rebuild the pack, they do have some "packs" on E-Bay listed under BP1600. It's always a "hit and miss" on E-Bay. The problem is that the current vendor lists the BP1600 pack as a Black & Decker part and doesn't know exactly what he is selling. There is no picture of this on the current listing which isn't good.
