Question about Dyson DC44 Animal Cordless Vacuum

Dyson DC44 Animal - after recharging battery, motor won't start?

Recharged the battery overnight. Green button comes on when trying to use the vacuum, but no motor. It just won't start up? I just bought this 2nd hand. Was working great prior to recharging the battery. Battery shows is it charged. Can anyone please tell me what to do to get it working again?

Do not leave it to recharge overnight! Try recharging it again but just for the time it needs, and then unplug. Then try vacuuming.
This worked for me when I had the same problem.

SOURCE: Power shuts off on my dyson dc17 animal

I had the same issue. Got on the phone with Dyson. THe vacuum has a safety feature where if the motor gets too hot it cuts off. You have to leave it for 45 minutes or so and then it will work again. There is an underlying issue though. My problem was the black gasket thats in the debris bin shifted, probably from when emptying i pushed it on something. The black gasket should actually hang off the bottom like a skirt and the 2 groves should fit in on the groves of the gray mechanism. This seal is what provides 100% suction. Because of this..my vaccumm has been accumulating pet hair by the belt which i hear alot of people talking about and especially in the filter area. This is because I broke the seal by not having the gasket in place properly and it wasnt sucking 100%. They are sending me a complete new cyclone unit which has the debris catcher as well as she said its probably so caked up with debris it will never work again 100%. no questions asked they are sending it to me free of charge.

So if you remove the clear cyclinder debris catch thing all you will have is the purple cyclone on top and on the bottom is the black rubber gasket....

Use the upholstery brush supplied to unclog the perforations on the Dyson filter; the clogged holes don't impede on suction so you dont have to worry about this. It can be annoying however when you see it.

SOURCE: dyson animal, have to hold ON switch for it to work

Pull the wand out of the Vac. Need to use a small Torx bit to take out 2 screws hidden behind the wand storage. Once screws are out, there are 4 push-clips which need to be un-latched. Pry the power panel off and you will expose the two switches (one for power, one for the brushes). Push the power switch down and it should "release" and go back to clicking when pushed. Re-assemble. Took about 5 minutes to fix.

SOURCE: Reset Button on my Dyson DC 25 Animal

What do you want to reset? Do you mean the motor has stopped working? There is no "reset button". The motor has an automatic cut-out, which will operate if the motor gets too hot and will reset itself when it cools. If the motor will not work when it's cool, then you have an electrical problem which will probably need professional attention.

Here is a copy of the manual for your vacuum

What could be the problem is the battery could be shot after not being used for so many years that the life of the battery is done. I would recommend taking it to a local vacuum store and have them take a look at the connections between where the battery goes and the motor.

Seems to charge but then wont come on


Sounds like you bought a defective battery
You can test for this by removing the battery and holding the power button for 15 seconds. This will restart the charging cycle as if the battery were new. If it still goes red get a refund and a new one.

The green light is on as though the battery is fully charged, however, when I start a cleaning cycle, it beeps and goes to red immediately without moving.


Remove the battery, hold down the POWER button for ten seconds, then put the battery back in and charge overnight. If it still tells you it's out of power as soon as you start it, it's time for a new battery. http://store.irobot.com

Scooba battery light turns red as soon as irobot starts


Do you leave the battery on charge long enough? Try 4-hours up to overnight. If so, then the battery is probably at the end of it's useful life. Getting a new battery depends on cost versus life expectancy of the robot and whether it does the job you want it to do.
