Dust Buster has no suction

Black & Decker Dust Buster CVH1400 14.4 V
I have had this Dust Buster for a year or so. It was quite powerful and charged well at first. Now it does not pick up anything. I really prefer to fix it than buy another. Thanks in advance for your help!

SOURCE: black & decker steam buster

Step 1 - fill the rear tank with water. Clip the tank onto the back of the unit.

Step 2 - plug the unit into the wall.

Step 3 - move the switch to "steam". You should hear the unit 'ticking' at the rate of about 120 clicks a minute (2 clicks a second). The clicking should be "kind of" loud until the water makes its way into the pump.

The clicking will get quieter as the water moves through the pump and into the heater. The book says that you should start getting steam in a couple of seconds. My experience is that you don't get a good head of steam up until the unit has been going for about 20 seconds.

Another recommendation: don't use "Spray" until the steam is really rolling out of the unit. It just overpowers the heater and slows your steam production.

Step 4 - Steam the spot you want steamed. If you want to soak the spot, use "Spray". Most of the really good cleaning power of the unit is through the steam, so use that more than spray.

Step 5 - Switch to Vacuum and **** up the moisture from the steaming.

Repeat Steps 4 and 5 until you're happy with the cleaning.

Step 6 - Empty the front tank, rinse it out. Empty the rear tank; you probably won't get all of the water out, but that's not a problem. If you use tap water, put in a couple of teaspoons of vinegar and let the unit run until you've sucked the last of the water/vinegar solution out of the tank. If you use distilled water in the rear tank, you might be able to skip this step.

Step 6 is intended to reduce the amount of lime scale that will build up in the pump over time. You should probably avoid stronger chemicals, since they are going to sit in the pump until you use the unit next, and the first few seconds of steam on the next use will have whatever chemicals you are using.

Response by small6363 was right on target. All the reviews and comments I had read up to this point for my Dustbuster CHV9600 indicated the battery could not be replaced. I am so glad this link was here.I have ordered the part and will follow the other posters' cautions about reassembling the product. I could not be happier as I could not find the model anymore and it is my favorite purple color. Thanks again small6363. You are a life saver.

How do I get more batteries for a dust buster?


You have 3 options:
1. You could do a search under the part number of the machine for a parts break out diagram.
2. Open the vacuum, and do a search for the battery when you see the part number on the old battery.
3. Call the manufacturer for assistance.

Dust Buster 16.8v won't hold charge, but for a minute. Can rechargeable battery be replaced or is is shot?


What model number is this. Black and Decker does not make a 16.8 to my knowledge, so a model number would be helpful.

I am not certain about this specific battery, however, if many batteries are unused for a long period of time, they can not be rejuvenated.
Try the switch in each position for 24 hours and if there is no action, it is probably not worth repairing.

Black and decker handheld vacuum phv1800 type 1 low battery power


Hi I know what you mean! My B&D dust buster used to do this too. The hi power boost means that it can only be used for a limited amount of time. Due to the age of the dust buster though its a sign that the battery is on its way out and regardless of whether or how long its been used or not used, batteries can lose power regardless.
Try to let the dust buster completely lose power and then charge it up for its initial burn in period of 14 hours. Also clean the connection metal strips or hole with a dry cotton bud incase there's any static or dust. Then see if it lasts longer. If the turbo mode or speed 2 is still short, then the battery is dying out.
I don't know where you are but in the UK its hard to get battery replacements for B&D products. You could check your local seller where you are if they have battery replacements but at the cost of current dustbusters it may make more economic sense to consider buying a new dustbuster.
