It worked! I’ve been trying to fix my hoover for months and this solution worked straight away! Thanks!!

von

Thank you so much. I replaced the battery. And the transformer. And it still would not run for more than 2 seconds. With your fix it started up right away! I was 2 minutes away from throwing the unit in the trash bin.

Why my Dyson vecum stop working after 5scents?

von

OMG it worked!! Zog you are a genius. How'd you come up with this?

von

Yep! Worked for me too — can't believe I've struggled on without my turbo for so long thinking it would cost me money (as usual!)

This is exactly what happens to mine. My fix takes 30 secs with no tools. Dyson go through 3 instructions then tell you a new battery is needed if nothing works. I find this strange as it works well for 10 secs and then complete cut out. But before you do this, my fix worked on mine 3 times now as the problem occurs every couple of months. Go to charging point unplug it from Mains. Reconnect and put dyson on charge point then press the trigger on the dyson for 15-20 secs. Nothing happens but when I take it off charging point Dyson is back to normal

Before you try my suggestion above! First the filter should not just be cleaned under a tap but take it apart and completely clean it out. Running it under the tap will not properly get all the gunk out that is stuck to the inside of the filter. This will no doubt be the root cause of the issue

von

Perfect!. Spot on Zog. Holding the trigger as you described for 12-20 sec did the trick. Thank you.

von

Spot on is right!! Worked perfectly - so glad I looked online for solutions.

von

Thank you Zog ,

It worked!

I have searched for weeks than asked the right question and got you.

von

This worked!

Dyson decided to sent me a new battery pack. Got it replaced and recommended 5 hours charging time prior putting it to use. Keep you posted with the outcome shortly.

Update (09/13/2018)

Dyson V8 Absolute vacuum issue fixed. Item under warranty and the problem seems to go away after replacing new battery pack supplied by Dyson. Battery replacement procedure easily found on youtube.

Hey, I had the same problem (ran for 10 seconds then cut out and wouldn’t run on MAX power at all) and tried everything listed, which was good to do anyway but in the end I ordered a new battery off eBay and it was that!

Is the fix described in this thread supposed to be a permanent fix?

Here are the symptoms of my issue and it happens with a Dyson v7 and v8:

  • vacuum cuts out within 1 minute of being fully charged
  • I put it back in the charger FOR ONE SECOND and don’t press the trigger or anything
  • The vacuum will now work normally until the battery is fully depleted (i.e another 8 or 9 minutes on max)

But the above symptoms happen every time I use it.

Have tried the upvoted solution suggested in this thread, but it seems no more permanent that simple sticking it back in the charger for a second (as in the steps I listed above)

Anyone else in my situation have any clues (I’ve cleaned the dysons inside out btw)

hey there, I just finished contacting Dyson support for this exact issue, and they basically just said replace the battery. If you're under warranty, it's free. I did not receive any actual information on what was going on, so I'm sorry I cannot offer insight on that, just their solution.

von

I have the same problem it’s fully charged. Goes flat after 5 seconds on high I put it on the charger for a second and can vac the whole house on low. Just won’t work on high.

I removed the canister on mine and when I did, I saw it had picked up on object that caused a clog. Once removed, it worked perfectly.

I did a complete teardown and cleaning, yet the problem persisted. Then I noticed that the motorized floor brush was spinning intermittently, then the main unit would shut down. Seems that the motor separated from the worm gear. I replaced the motor unit-problem solved.

Thanks for the comment, mine is 100% clean and even without any extension it’s not working on high speed, I just realized that on low speed it’s working

von

Mine works fine on low. High stops after 15 seconds.

von

@Michelle Anderson how do you make it stay on high

I also discovered the “charge for 1s” fix, but like you I have to do this *every time* I use the damned thing. Will probably try a battery replacement but I suspect the overheat sensor.

Same problem.. Haven't tried the 1 second fix yet. But I can tell you that the first thing I did when this started was buy a new battery on Amazon. NO EFFECT at all!

von

@Richard Rettig So are you just sticking it back into the dock for a second every time you use it? Even after the battery change?

von

I’ve not replaced the battery myself. I just sick it back on charge for 1-2s when it cuts out and then it runs until depleted. Tedious but workable :/

Yes - I ended up doing ALMOST the same thing. I bought a Moosoo…The patent is apparently off. There are a lot of Chinese companies that make a better product - for less. Moosoo, Jimmy, Xiomi, etc….as an added plus - there is a real on-off switch - you don’t have to hold the trigger down the entire time.

Thanks for the fix, worked perfectly. Not impressed with Dyson anymore, all they want is to sell you a new battery. However, consumer law in the UK says that the retailer needs to sort this out, albeit via Dyson; the usual ‘batteries don’t last forever’ doesn’t wash!! I’ll see how long the machine carries on before another ‘fix’ is needed, but might pursue it through consumer law anyway, just for my own ‘enjoyment’. Thanks again for the ‘fix’

I had the same issue and a new battery from eBay fixed it. Also a higher capacity battery so it now lasts much longer also.

this fix didnt work for me, after many frustrating cleanings and trial and error I found it needed more restriction to stay running, I stuffed the rear filter (dyson v8 absolute) with some tissue and it works now. doesnt seem to be overheating at all.

Another thing to try…when you put it back on the docking station, and the blue light does not come on - often it no longer fully “docks”; needs an extra downward push on the dock to force the docking maneuver.

Tried your fix, no luck. But I don’t think it is the battery either. Like someone else said, this sympton of running at normal power for 10-20 seconds then dying, is probably a faulty overtemperature sensor, so I don’t think I will waste my money on a new battery. Probably best to buy a new unit on sale.

Forget the Dyson - there are a slew of Chinese copies available on Amazon - the patent must have expired. Moosoo, Jimmy, Xiomi - all better rated, and no need to hold the trigger in.

von

I believe the over temperature sensor is in the battery unit so replacing the battery does in fact normally solve this problem.

Old thread but I know the answer. My Dyson V8 symptoms were that it would go on/off, qickly for 7 times in a row and then stop altogether. Release the trigger and it would do the same again.

Bought a new battery and symptoms stayed the same. Replaced the cone shaped filter in the top and all was as good as new.

PS… I also replaced the rear filter just for kicks.

The thing is, if there are this many complaints about THE most expensive and supposedly cutting edge cordless vacuum, then it is poorly manufactured and Dyson should take responsibility. Their advertising is extremely misleading.

1. I agree. The patent must be off. There are a boatload of Chinese companies that sell the same thing for much much less - and are higher rated in comparison reviews - and have a real 'on' switch!! I have bought 3 Chinese models for my office since my last Dyson, and one for my house. They are on Amazon as well as Aliexpress.

2. Regarding the problem with the Dyson not charging, I am now convinced that the one and only problem is that it doesn't fully connect when you put it on the charging stand, you have to manually push the pieces together - then it charges normally.

I bought dyson because i thought they were the best, obviously i was misleaded and my experience is the same as everyone's here on this thread. It switches off after 10 seconds on max and I have no idea what to waste my money on replacing. There are too many spare parts which can be replaced and i have no idea what is broken, the battery or the tiny filter (pretty crap design) or the temperature sensor?? All i can say is i cant wait to take it outside and introduce it to the hammer. And then i’ll go and buy a chinese cordless hoover and hoover up all the little dyson pieces. :)

New Battery fixed mine, I put new filters in first but no difference.

I bought from Dyson, as the cheap Chinese batteries get a bad wrap and can’t be trusted on battery size and have no warranty
