The Dyson v6 goes in 5 second spurts then stops, then goes again. Does this 3-4 times then stops altogether. The battery is fully charged. Why does it do this?

Hi, this happens when the PCB detects a blockage. Take the filter out and then try it. If it no longer goes for only 5 seconds then your filter needs washed. Wash the filter in your washing machine .

Should continue charging when the vacuum cools down a little.
Solid amber: Not charging, temporary fault
(e.g. too hot/cold).

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!
