easy fix, unplug the machine sit in front of it. put your thumb on the on/off button and push down and slip your thumb off of it as fast as you can so it pops real loud. Do this ten times and then plug back in and see if it works. ( this came from talking with Dyson people) Hope it works for you. They said this will reset the machine. also acts as a warning that your filters most likely need cleaned.

You will need to follow the power down to the motor and insure it is getting full voltage. If so you ,
may need a new motor. Be sure to check the common wires too. If you have a bad spot in any of the common wires the motor will not run.

You weren't specific about what kind of dyson canister it was but I had same problem with mine and fixed it by running a broom handle or a hanger I can't remember and also checked and washed the filter also how old is it

Pull the wand up and out of the hose. Release the catch holding the hose onto the vacuum to remove the hose.

Hi Christy, it's Jack at Dyson.

If your Dyson V6 cordless vacuum is pulsing on and off, this will be due to something preventing airflow from passing through the machine. Once you've checked the floor tool and wand for any blockages, the next thing to check is the bin inlet, as well as the bin inlet flap. It's possible some debris could be jamming the inlet flap shut. I've made you a quick video to help you with some further troubleshooting, and I'm confident this will get your V6 up and running again.
