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

I have a unit that is about 4 years old and appears to NOT hold a charge. I know to only charge for 3 hrs max but want to be sure my problem is the $75.00 battery before I purchase one. What is your opinion if I have to keep pressing down on the trigger over and over and over again?


Answers :

Your battery is losing voltage too quick. It has probably developed a \012'memory'. Dyson claims that their handheld has the best suction out of \012all the handhelds out there. In order to maintain that claim the circuit\012 board will shut off power to the motor when the voltage drops below \012adequate charge for full suction.
\012We need someone who can teach us to bypass that part of the circuit so \012it won't cut power to the motor or you need to get a new battery.
\012Shorting the battery like an Aircraft battery then re-charging won't fix it.

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

I purchased a brand new P113 Ryobi charger about 2 years ago. It has never worked. If I put a P104 battery in for a charge, it looks like it works correctly. I push the battery tester on the battery itself, and it says full charge, but when I go to use the bateery, it dies right away. I have tried three new P104 batteries. The batteries charge on my charger at work with no problem. The funny thing is, I don't need a battery in the charger and the charger does the same thing, It runs the test


If you have your receipt, check with Ryobi to see if it is still under warranty. It comes with either a 2 or 3 year warranty, depending on when it was purchased. If it is still covered, get it replaced/repaired. If it is not, buy the P117 charger. $3 ... Ryobi P113 18 Volt One Charger 140501001
