Having problems with your Dyson DC16 Root 6 Bagless Handheld Cyclonic Vacuum ?

My Dyson Root 6 made a loud banging sound, and now its motor emits a strong burning smell every time it's switched on. It runs for a second or two, making a lot of noise, and then stops. (Just bought a new battery for it, too - what a drag...) It's off warranty, and Dyson wants almost as much to fix it as a new one would cost. Is my Root 6 e-waste, or is there anything that can be done for it?

We bought a new home in march. It is a brand new home, with brand new First Alarm smoke/CO detectors. The very first night, we noticed the iving room (main) smoke alarm was "chirping". So we tried to replace the batteries, but when we did, all of the smoke alarms started going off (they are hardwired). We took out the new battery & dealt with the chirp. It is getting to be too much. So we are trying to fix it, but everytime we replace the batteries, the alarms are silent for a little bit, & then

My VX550CC also shuts down after about 15-20 minutes. My problem is that I can't find my sales receipt. Nutone told me after contacting them several times that they will not honor their warranty unless I can produce the original sales receipt only. Tech assist person was very rude about whether I actually bought it myself. We bought this unit when we moved into a new house 4 years ago and can't find the slip anywhere. Totally bad customer service and they won't honor their warranty even for a p

Battery charge I just purchased a new battery pack insert for my Roomba, Replacement was a breeze and it now works great. My question is; The last battery I bought ( not from you) was a full cased roomba battery pack that didn't last a year. Roomba says leave the r Roomba charging all the time so it's ready when you need it, and that's nice but I feel that leaving it charging like that it will kill the battery faster as it is always warm to the touch. These battery's should last at least 5


Dave you are correct. You should never over-charge anything like a Roomba, Cel Phone, etc. That will kill a bettery very quickly. ... Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum

The hand held dyson does not appear to charge. does the battery come away from the unit as I can't seem to release it? Would there be any point in buying a new battery as I don't know if this is the problem. The red light stays lit all the time it is on charge and when I take it off the machine does not respond at all.


The battery is located at the bottom of the handle. To release it, press and hold down the button on top of the battery case (it has 3 ridges on it). That releases a catch and you can then slide the battery out to the rear. This can be quite ha ... Dyson DC16 Root 6 Bagless Handheld Cyclonic Vacuum

I have a DYSON ROOT cycle carpet cleaner. It is cleaned and looked after and is in perfect working order. However, I have been using this machine, with inserted ear plugs, since the day I bought it. The noise is driving me mad! I have never owned such a noisy machine. Do you have a cure for this jet engine noise, or is there no choice but to purchase another machine which is not DYSON?

I just bought a westinghouse unplugged vacuum cleaner.( It is new) The design is awesome, and when it works it works great . But it has very short battery life. 1 battery lasts only about 5 minutes, and the other is even less. I did all the instructions told me as far as conditioning and charge yet I still do not get a very solid amount of vacuuming time. Is there any thing I can do?


Usually a short battery life means bad battries that aren't holding its charge. Being new I would think it would have a year's warranty on it. Find out who is the closest warranty shop and have them fix it. ... Vacuums

I have a Roomba Discovery. In the past, I had to replace the charging dock. Then the battery died so I did not use it for two years. I finally bought a new battery and used the Roomba. It worked great. It did not find the docking station, and died. I have been charging it and the red light pulsates, but after 16 hours, it still is not charged...any ideas?

Hoover bagless cannister 3765 - belt on power head slips off spindle. bought new belts - same problem. is this a design problem or can it be fixed? I don't want to take it to a repair shop 100 miles away and have them just put on a new belt. saw idea of smaller belt - what number? couldn't find suggested royal 104425001 belt.


I would not recommend a smaller belt. You will only wear the motor. This model series power nozzle needs to have a metal clip installed near the belt on the brush roller housing.

Loud noise I have a brand new Dyson and it is great on all my floors except one of my area rugs when it starts making this really loud vibrating noise. I am not sure why - nothing is stuck in the roller or vacuum and it doesn't make it on any of my other rugs. Also it is really hard to push whereas all the other floors it just glides. I don't want to return it but I also don't want to hear this sound every time I vacuum.


This is the clutch as it jams up in the brush. Usually happens with rugs that are not secured to the floor. ... Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Hi, this is our third Dyson DC-16.. the Trigger was shorting out on the first two.. Now we have the third one for about a year.. on charge when not using it.. don't use it every day, but for quick pickups only.. Just how long should the battery last?

I have a dyson root cyclone. i dismantled it to replace the belt, it is not the belt which is on the roller brush, it is the belt which is from the motor, it was easy to take out as it was broken, i will get new one tomorrow now im wondering how do i fit it in.
