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.

How long does it take to charge the cordless vac?


The basic rule of charging is "charge for 3 hours for every hour of use".

You won't hurt anything if you charge it overnight, but don't leave it charging for more then 24 hours.

If you wear the battery out eventually, Batteries Plus can re-pack the battery.

It will not hold a charge. Been plugin for days at a time then it will run a minute then stop


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

How old is your battery? and did you keep it on charge when it was not in use?
Most rechargeable batteries require a spindown, where as you completely discharge the battery before recharging it again.
I know you aren't wanting to hear this but in all probability that battery is spent and will need to be reconditioned at a battery place, however, it will cost almost as much as a new one it would be your call.
if you have a ohm/volt meter it might be possible to look at the charger and get a volt/amp reading and then test it see if it is putting out the proper voltage it could be putting out a trickle charge and it would take forever to charge it.
there is one other situation to look at and if the beater brush or motor is causing a resistance it will pull a battery down quick.
I do not own this vaccum so I can only guess as to the possibilities.

My DD hand vac won't hold the charge for more than one minute and just fades away! It has been charged for 24 hours.


Hi there! Your battery may need to be reset. Try depleting the battery. Run the vacuum until it completely shuts off, then re-charge for a full 24 hours. Hope this helps out! If you still have questions you feel free to reach out to us here on Fixya, Facebook.com/dirtdevil, or Twitter @DirtDevil.

After charging overnight, Roomba only runs about 25 minutes before shutting down with a red light.At this point the battery measures 15.13 volts ( about 1.26 volts per cell ) My hobby experience is that a...


Reset the Roomba by removing it from the charger, then holding "spot" and "dock" for about twelve seconds. When you let go, the unit will play an ascending series of notes. Then recharge it overnight. If the run time is still short, give Customer Support a call-- be sure to have the Roomba with you when you do.

Cordless vac won't hold a charge


Like all batteries after a while they go bad/will not hold a charge. especially the kind that is always plugged in/always charging, like electric shavers, cordless vac and so on.
