Cordless vacuum - Cold weather operationSPOTLIGHTED POST
If you are storing or transporting your vacuum in cold temperatures (below 3C°) and experiencing cut-out of the motor after 1-2 seconds, the unit is operating as-designed.I was experiencing some problems that are not documented in the manual and I have owned my cordless v8 absolute for 25 months. At first, I though the battery was bad. The symptoms were that I would remove the unit from its charging base and all 3 bars would show a fully charged battery. I would squeeze the trigger and the unit would stop after 1-2 seconds and the battery indicator would display a single flashing blue bar. It did not matter if a power accessory was attached, or nothing was attached. It also did not matter if the unit was in MAX SUCTION mode or normal mode.I called Dyson support, and they thought I needed a new battery. I am glad now that I did not order one.My unit is stored in the garage and for the last several weeks daytime temperatures have been below freezing. I never “connected the dots” f
Hi, I'm thinking about buying a Dyson V11 to clean this type of carpet (photo attached). The place is never very dirty, with the exception of the entrance, the rest are spots of small dirt. Would anyone recommend this equipment for this type of carpet? PS.: I have never use any Dyson.
We bought a V10 Stick Vaccum in June of 2023 from Costco. My son just bought a Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean Extra Cordless Stick Vacuum and we really like the Fluffy optic head. It really highlights the dust and dirt on hard floors. If I buy just the Fluffy optic head will it fit and work on my V10?
There seems to be no way to remove this particular wall mount as once it is locked in position there is no way to remove it.Please don't give me ludicrous answers like chat did. The staff at Sydney did not have a clue about this. I have owned machines all the way since v6 and all wall mounts were movable the Gen 5 not unless there is a special tool to get behind and move the lugs as you try to lift it which I doubt. No this one has been designed without removal and repositioning in mind. (Moderation Edit - Tags Added/Category Updated)
Is the Gen5detect able to stay upright on its own? I’m having to prop it up against a wall or lay it down on the floor when I’m in the middle of vacuuming. I’m hoping that I must be missing something because I can’t I imagine this machine cannot stand upright on its own.
Hi!, so I have a Dyson V6 fluffy+, recently the clip on the dirt chamber broke so my partner bought a new one. He did not buy from Dyson direct, all it says is Dyson V6 DC59, DC72 vacuum cleaner bin assembly as description.Now, it works and fits the battery perfectly but no attachments fit this cleaner bin, including the wand, I think it’s because the end (attachment part) is slightly different. Therefore I want to buy a new wand to fit the new chamber but because I can’t see the attachment part on any pictures I don’t know exactly what one it is.Any chance anyone can help? The new attachment part is attached, I just need the model/make of the wand to fit this.
my v11 is approx 3 years old and has suddenly stopped working. There is no display on the LCD screen and nothing happens when I press the trigger for 10 seconds. I purchased a new battery (following the suggestion on the Dyson troubleshooting section on the website) but the machine still isn’t working. any suggestions ? I’ve already spent £85 on the new battery which seems to have been a waste of money. I’ve checked the machine and there are no blockages.
I cannot remove the fluffy laser head to clean it. I’ve followed the instructions and unclicked the non laser end, but the fluffy head cannot be pulled away from the laser end of the plastic casing. Does anyone have any suggestions or advice? Thank you
Hello Everyone,I have a Dyson V8 plus supplied without any type of “Crevice tool” although there is a vacant slot to accommodate this accessory as it hangs on the wall. Post sale I decided to purchase a Crevice tool with the illuminating feature however the two “sent-out” did not function properly with only the briefest blink of light and then only as the machine was initially triggered. Trying to have the problem solved has not bought my way any joy: The benefit versus anxiety measurement told me to walk away, modern methods we see in customer-support can wear you down and one must realise when “they” are impacting your mental health. Did I mention the multiple trips back and forward to the Post Office, phone calls going nowhere and the over-friendly conversations with Robots?As a last resort, I now put forward with blind faith, the hope of a sensible answer.Thank you.
