Almost certainly the battery. 3 years is pretty good for those batteries. Normally batteries can be changed by suitably "interested" people, but I don't know about that specific model. Check out the replacement price of the whole thing compared to the replacement price of just the battery before you jump in though.

My dyson shuts off after just a few seconds of run time.


Make sure the charger is operating. Then if it is, look at a failed battery.

I have a Dyson DC16 handheld and the battery does not hold a charge.


I have the same vaccumm with the same problem, went back to exchange it and the same thing happened, I usually get about 10-15 minutes non stop out of the battery, I read that the battery memorizes the first charged time and then will only charge for that long. Did you happen to charge it 24 hrs?

My DC 16 will only run for a second each trigger pull. The battery is fully charged, it has plenty of suction, just wont run for more than a second. I cleaned the filters.


I had the same problem with my Dyson DC16, where it only runs for a few seconds at a time with each trigger pull. My husband called Dyson (Canada) and without hassle they shipped us a replacement part which I just received this morning. The replacement part sent to us is: DC16 Main Body with Rating Plate. It is also under warranty for 1 year. The great customer service makes up for the flaw in the machine. Also, Dyson is aware of the problem. Hope this helps.
