Are those new wireless stick vacuums worth buying? I love the idea but, it seems power must be limited or weak without enough suction.


I retired from fixing battery powered cleaning equipment a few years ago. The problem with wireless is that the batteries don't hold up. They will work fine for a few weeks- then they start to run out of juice after only a few min. On most rechargeables if you don't run them down completely, they only charge to the point you last put it on the charger (It's called battery memory). I personally think the rechargeables are a waist of money, and, when the batteries start to go- are frustrating. Just get an upright, with a side hose. I've got two at home that are over 20 years old. I only had to change the beater bar brush and belt twice in that time. No more than $150 bucks should be your price point for a vacuum used at your own home.

My dyson DC44 is only 7 months old. It will not charge. The green light blinks constantly. Do I need a new battery already?


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty charging your DC44. We're unable to specify an exact lifespan for the battery as this will depend on how each individual machine is used and maintained. But we would expect the battery to last for at least the 2-year guarantee period in normal use.

When you have your machine easily to hand, I would encourage you to get in touch with us directly so our experts can talk you through some diagnostic checks to help us confirm which part is at fault. If a replacement part is needed, we can also check that this is covered under your 2-year Dyson guarantee.

You can reach us by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU). We'll look forward to speaking with you.

I have a 4.5 year old IRobot Roomba 530 Robotic Vacuum. Appears to be fully charged but then only runs for about 30 seconds before stopping. What may be the problem?


You need a new battery - they don't hold their charge after a while. There is a lot of advice on line about how to try to make the battery last longer but 4.5 years is actually pretty good.

If you have had it for a while - probably time to a new battery. I've been through 2 in 7 years.

Does not hold charge. Strong for about a minute and it dies off. It is not very old so I can't believe its the battery. Shouln't they last long? Thanks for your help.


If the unit itself is under a year I would take it back to the store. It sounds like the unit is not charging properly which you already know. Check to see if you actually have charge coming out of your charger. Usually there is a charge light. Is it bright when charging? If you have a volt meter you can check the voltage coming out of the charger to verify if there is indeed voltage coming out. Let me know what you discover.

Our Miele vacuum is only 2/3 years old and seems to have given up the gost, our previous one lasted 15 yrs. The machine starts ok and within 4/5 minutes the power drops down and the hoover comes to a stop...


There is a circut board that is going bad and not providing the power to run the motor. You will need to contact a Miele dealer for that part. It is the only board that is in this machine so they should just need a model number in order to get it for you.

Tune up Old Electrolux vacumm


The problem with the older vacuums is that parts may not be available. It may be better to get new. But you could take it in and get an estimate first, then decide.
