Help. My Cordless vacuum isn't charging

I have had my DC59 for many years now. Recently it only works for a few mins. if that.  The blue light flashes, like it did yesterday, and I charged it overnight. I pulled the trigger this morning and an orange light came on and went off immediately followed by the blue flashing light.

I’m not sure whether I need to purchase another battery or if there is something else wrong with the product. Also the MAX button used to show a blue light when depressed, now it doesn’t show a light at all.

I’m hoping you can help.

Hello @SusieQ

I had a somewhat similar issue last week. In my case the lights were flashing blue on the trigger pull. Unknown to me, this was caused by the charger being inserted incorrectly. 

Coincidentally I was browsing some similar posts in the knowledge base and came cross the ‘Online Support’ link. This led me down a rabbit hole of questions on ‘lights’. Maybe this could help you identify the cause and suggest a fix?
