I am going to sound like a broken record but here is my same answer to another person with the same problem.
I have 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.

I found a good deal on ebay. Didn't want to pay Dyson's battery price.
I love my Dyson handvac. I'm very happy to have it back again! The new battery solved the problem.

I had that SAME problem! It ran for just a few seconds after having a full charge. Cleaned the filters, tried everything. Just needed a new battery...
My Dyson DC16 hand vac's battery finally went out at 4 years, which is about right. I didn't want to pay Dyson $75.00 for a new one!
I found a good deal on ebay for new batteries that didn't break the bank!
That's all it needed.
It's good to have my hand vacuum back! I missed it!
Rock on Dyson.......
