Dyson Vacuums - Page 4 - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

There are a couple of reasons you could be having this issue. First, I would first suggest checking your brushroll and removing any hair or fibers wrapped around it. Second, check airflow and filters. remove hoses and rid them of any debris that may be trapped inside. Also, vacuum bags that are more than half way full will cause your machines suction to dramatically reduce. Thirdly, check to see if your machine is on the right setting. Some machines have a bare floor and carpet setting. Using the wrong setting will keep your vacuum from properly doing its job. Lastly, it may be a motor issue. If this is the case, I would suggest consulting with your local technician.

Battery packs on Dyson V6 models are usually good for about 3-4 years. If yours is not holding a charge, I would first suggest replacing the battery pack. Also, I do not see any reason as to why not using it often would affect the battery life since these models are made to be able to stay on the charger for long periods of time without damaging the battery itself. If replacing the battery doesn't help, I suggest consulting with a technician. I hope this helps.

They just pull out on each end. The shaft goes all the way from one end cap to the other.

The latch might be clogged with dirt or gunk

There is a lever on the back of the vacuum you can turn to allow the filter to come out.

If it has good suction but won't pick up dirt off the floor it probably needs the belts or clutch replaced.

The filters might need cleaned or replaced.

dyson-dc44-animal-handheld-vacuum-keeps-ehecv3x4uj13pgwprhzrjmma-4-1.jpgThe battery falls slightly loose, so you have to fasten it securely to the body of the vacuum. I learned this from another user here on Fixya. He uses electric tape. I used one of those rubber bracelets that kids wear. Worked perfectly!

The on/off power switch faulty. The switch gets used every time you use it.So It might be that.Unplug it and open the switch.You can use a meter to check it.If it's in the off mode and still sends a signal...it's the switch

You may have to press the release button and hold it depressed as you pry the canister loose.

Have you tried pushing the peg inwards?
This locking peg should be spring-loaded, and tapered at the top to retract automatically when the handle is pushed down, like a folding umbrella.
However, it could be jammed, so try manual force.
The lock-peg may have trapped a piece of debris around its body.
