Dyson v6: It looks like it stopped charging.


If it's only 2 weeks old, you could have a defective either charging system or just a bad battery. Most places offer free replacement within 30 days of purchase. I would take it back to your place of original purchase. I hope that helps!

Air driven turbo brush


Is this the Lightning model? How old is it? You may have to just replace the belt.

Also, the front brush motor will not engage until the power is turned on and the handle is in the down position. In the upright position the brush motor wont engage. Typical faults will be the belt is broken and needs replacing or the fornt brush motor needs replacing.

Hi, the main box where all the wires connect to the sensor has the power on, and i've just noticed the small box where you enter the code to set the alarm does not work, yet the buttons are illuminated,...


Difficult as you didn't say what the equipment is but it sounds like there is a problem with communication between the main box and the keypad box. Have someone check that all the wires in the keypad are connected and there is no break in one of the wires. There are normally 6 connections, +ve and -ve, 2 serial connections and 2 tamper.If all the connections are ok try removing all power including the battery from the main box and reconnecting. Make sure you know all your codes including the installer code before you do this.Note if you do undo the small box the alarm may well go off!
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.

My unit is a little over 2 years old, and I cannot leave the power button in the on position on the main unti any more. The power was controlled by the vacuum power nozzle whether I was using the carpet...


Why can't you leave the power switch "on" ?

Does it stay running, ot does it not run at all?

if it stays on, the power probably isnt controlled by the power nozzle, but may be controlled by a door switch on the flapper doors where you insert the hose... Make sure all the "flapper doors" are completely shut, there's probably one stuck a little open I'm guessing...

Light says its charging but it wont turn on


Hi there,

Well first of all you may check that the charger (adapter) is working or not, you may use a volt meter to check it out or use another charger to make sure....... further you may follow the step below -
1. Remove the battery pack from Vacuum.
2. Hold down the power button for five seconds.
3. Reinstall the battery to reset the system.
4. Plug the Charger directly into vacuum.
5. Charge the battery untill the power light is solid green again and keep the vacuum on the charger for an additional 72 hours (3 days). Important: Do NOT interrupt this charging cycle.
If further you have the same problem it means it's time to change the old battery with new one.

Good Luck!!
Thanks for using FixYa!!

Vacuum will not shut off


Sounds like you have wires crossed at the switch. The 2 wires coming in go to the center posts, 2 to the power head & 2 to the main motor.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
There are 2 types of Turbo Brushes, the electric type driven by a power head or power nozzle most likely used on a canister type vacuum or a central vacuum driven by electricity and there is an air driven power head. In either case the belt should be riding on the brushroll pulley on the end or if it is an air driven power head, sometimes the pulley section is in the middle, and the other end would run off the motor pulley / shaft. If you have a flat belt it is suggested that you change the belt every 4 to 6 months, if you have a geared belt, suggested change would be one year or so. I am not sure on the Brand of turbo brush you have, but you can refer to your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or the yellow pages, or contact the manufacturer for a phone # or website address, some times if you have a air driven turbo power brush it may be cost efficient to replace the brush instead of repairing the turbo brush. Just a suggestion.
Example: www.turbobrush.com – this may or may not be the website address not knowing the brand name.
Thanks, Don – The Vac Man
