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

DC16 charger output 28VDC Battery 23.6VDC only runs 1-3 sec what is wrong

Answers :

Hi Rene,

I am sorry to hear that your DC16 handheld seems to have a short runtime.

This issue is generally the result of the filters needing to be washed or not being seated properly in the machine. If the machine is being used regularly, the filters should be washed monthly otherwise it will impact the performance of the machine.

To inspect the filters follow the steps below:

Remove the canister and separate the nozzle from the main body of the machine by pressing the silver button on the top of the machine.

Remove the pre-filter.

There are two portions to the washable pre-filter a blue sponge and a white scrim that has blue plastic.

In the lower right hand corner of the blue plastic is a small silver disc. Opposite of the small silver disc is a hole that should slip onto a molded plastic post in the main body of the machine.

While holding the handle of the machine in your right hand locate and lift up on the small "lip" on the left-hand side of the main body where the vents are.

The rectangular blue sponge is your post motor filter.

These filters should be washed once a month in cold water (no soap) and left to dry at room temperature for 24 hours or more.

If any gray is visible on any part of the filters they need to be washed.

When replacing the pre-filter into the machine it is important that the blue sponge face away from the motor and the small silver disc on the white portion be positioned in the lower corner of the main body.

If the steps above do not fully resolve the problem, please call us directly at 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

Best wishes,

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

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

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.
