If the charger is left connected without the connection to the battery for several hours and there is no heat on the charger, then it is possible that the battery is using up more charging current .
This results in heating of the unit for the large current delivery.
Checck your battery if the back up has dropped down, if so it is confirmed to change the battery.
Hope this advice helps

Brand new first charge The green light on the charger plug goes off after a short time. Is the unit still charging?


Once the green light goes off, it's done charging. Since it was first charge I know they say to charge it 8? hours (or 4? don't recall right offhand) but it does come charged (that's part of how they make the batteries). What you do want to do is remember not to always recharge it when your done using it. Use it till the battery goes flat, then recharge it; it will give you a longer battery life that way.

When I put the battery on the charger the light on the charger stays on for little awhile the it starts to blink, but when I try to use the battery it is not charged. So I am not sure if I need a new


Hi there! It sounds like you have our Linx stick vacuum or hand vacuum model. Plug only the charger into an outlet, the blue light on the charger should flash once. If the light on the charger flashes once then the charger is fine. Try resetting the battery by following these quick steps below.

1. Remove the battery from charger or cleaner
2. Unplug the charger
3. Insert the battery into the vacuum and turn the unit on for 30 seconds (even if it has no power)
4. Remove the battery
5. Plug the charger into an outlet, make sure the light on charger blinks blue once.
6. Insert battery into charger

The light should be a solid blue, indicating the battery reset worked. If so, allow the battery to charge for 3-4 hours, completely deplete battery on your next use and re-charge. If the light on the charger is still blinking, your battery will need to be replaced. I have included a link where you may go to purchase a replacement battery if needed. Hope this helps!

Hoover linx battery, charger or unit itself?


As a former owner of one, my suggestion is that it be discarded rather than repaired.

I have a Dyson DC35. It has just stopped working. The green light on the charger is on and the vacuum is plugged into the charger, but it is like the vacuum is completely dead.


I had a similar problem. I have it on the wall mount and it turns out the plug that goes into the dyson to charge the battery had become unseated from the mount. I pushed it back in ("click") and that fixed it.

I have an Energizer Model CHDC7 battery charger for AA/AAA batteries. I'm not sure how to use it. Specifically, when batteries are inserted and plugged in, it displays flashing green lights over all...


Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH) batteries are usually charged in pairs in consumer chargers. The CHDC7 can charge two or four batteries at a time. Their position in the charger is important (see the link at the end of this note). Each battery has a separate pair of green LEDs. There are no other LEDs on this charger. The LEDs light up to show the state of charge. Flashing means it is charging. Solid means it has reached that level of charge (ie, 1 LED = half charged, 2 LEDs = fully charged). The batteries will get warm but not uncomfortably so. After some practice you will be able to tell if they are getting too hot (which may signal a worn-out battery which should then be replaced). Like all rechargeable batteries, NiMH batteries have a finite life (measured in number of times they've been discharged and recharged). IMHO, they should also be used and charged in matched pairs. I mark them when I take them out of the box and keep them paired in use and in charging for maximum life. Yes, the devices that use 3 batteries are a pain to deal with. LOL. All details can be found on this Energiser data sheet: http://data.energizer.com/PDFs/chdc7_instructions_english.pdf

P.S. The CHDC7 remains open for charging. Closing it for storage is optional but minimizes the space it takes up.

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.

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.

Roomba 4108 does not charge


Try resetting your Roomba by removing the battery, unplug the charging connector, hold down the Power button for 30 seconds. This will reset the charging system, replace your battery, connect your charger and see what happens. By the way do you also have a homebase ? If so try that too

Westinghouse Unplugged Vacuum Turns off after 5 Seconds.


If both batteries are behaving the same way then this is probably a charger problem. When you insert the battery pack into the charger does the 'charging' light blink for 30 minutes (fast charge) then go steady? I noticed that one of my batteries was causing the light to come on steady immediately I inserted it into the charger. When I tried to use the battery pack I got the same problem everyone else is seeing, i.e. vacuum cleaner shuts off in less than a minute, so I conclude that when the charging light is on steady then the battery is not being charged.

If the charging light does not blink when you insert the battery (i.e. comes on steady or not at all), try removing the battery and re-inserting it into the charger.

Try a conditioning cycle on your battery packs. To do this:
* Insert the battery pack into the charger
* Before the charging light lights press the 'condition' button located just above the charging light.
* The 'conditioning' light should blink. This is a light which does not normally illuminate, and it is located below the condition button and above the charging light. The charger fan will run quieter in this mode.
* Leave the battery pack in the charger for 24 hours while this cycle is taking place.

I'm not a service technician so perhaps someone else might like to post other solutions or corrections to this one.
