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

My Dyson DC16 usually shuts down after about 5 to 10 seconds. However, occasionally it will run for 45 seconds to 1 minute before shutting down. It is left on charge permanently. I have checked the voltage from the charger, and it is 27.8 volts.

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.

After charging overnight, Roomba only runs about 25 minutes before shutting down with a red light.At this point the battery measures 15.13 volts ( about 1.26 volts per cell ) My hobby experience is that a ni/cad or ni/mh battery nominal charged voltage is about 1.2 volts per cell, and that the recommended end point voltage should be about 1.0 volts per cell. Seems like the battery is ok, butsome kind of voltage regulator is shutting things down prematurely. Is this happening, and , if so, how ca

The last time the vacuum cleaner was used the outlet sparked causing it to smoke when turning on vacuum cleaner. I replaced the outlet and plugged it in and things seemed o.k. Today I turned on the vacuum, it stayed on for a mili second and went off. I checked the switch on the vacuum and it showed voltage coming and going, but would not turn on again.

I am currently unsure, it my Dyson DC16 battery is charging as it should. I read all the posts about Powersupply voltage of 28V and defective PCBs. I now need to know from someone who's DC16 is working properly what voltage the battery should have when it is charged. I currently only measure 24.2V in mine. Supposing there are 6 batteries in there with nominal 3.6 voltage each, which would add up to 21.6, I supposed one could charge with up to 25.2V (4.2*6) and once reach lower the voltage ke

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

My robot will not charge. Tried multiple resets and new battery from irobot.com (both suggested by Irobot customer service) but got nowhere. The vacuum did work for a short time (until the new partially charged battery ran out). If I bypass the internal charging circuits and charge directly from the charger (with jumpers) the robot seems to work fine. Unfortunatey, there is no mechanism to turn off the charge cycle, so this is not practical.

We have an Aquanot II charger for our backup sump pump. We unplugged the charger from the battery, and just plug the charger into an outlet. As soon as we plug it into an outlet, the two LEDs lite up, and then the fuse trips within a second. We bought the whole sump pump backup system in June 2009, so it is fairly new.
