Great at marketing , Equally worse at quality and support

Bought this product and before the warranty period it's falling apart. After parts replacement by dyson still not workable and it good looks as a trophy at home. Show details

Can't Even Get Hold of Dyson On the Phone!

My Dyson V7 has been frustratingly breaking down for a few months now, running for only a minute or so.
Have been trying to call Dyson to effect warranty however, the calls keep failing!, tried again and again, hopeless, a waste of my time! I am reading on reviews it is likely that the battery needs replacing and then when the battery is replaced its none the better. Dyson, what are you doing? Answer your phones! Show details

I am impressed!!

I have to say I am impressed!! Coming from a underwhelming dyson v6 that had its battery replaced under warranty after less than 1y. I thought I'd never gey another dyson cordless. I took a leap of faith and grabbed myself a v7 advanced and I was blown away at its performance, battery and suction power. Oh and the hair feature on the head is a game changer. All I can say is my old v6 sucks!! I am very happy with my purchase. I love how much dirt it picks up and how I don't have to bring out my old corded dyson out of the cupboard anymore. Show details

Appalling device

Used daily. Battery failed within warranty period. Dyson replaced the battery which again failed just outside the warranty. They are obviously using low grade lithium batteries. Not acceptable for such an expensive vacuum. Show details

Dyson v7 stick vacuum

I purchased a Dyson v7 stick vacuum 2 years ago, I would never buy another one. According to their website the battery takes 3.5 hours to charge and gives 40 minutes of powerful suction. I could never get mine to last longer than 25 min on the powerful suction mode. If on Max suction, it lasts 10 seconds - I timed it!

The powerful suction mode is not powerful, useless on low pile carpet, only reasonable on tiles as the suction will not pick up everything. I get more suction from a B&D Dustbuster. Very disappointed in this product. Show details

Disappointed!

Have had many Dyson handheld models over the years but first time one hasn't come with a crevice tool! $400 dollar machine and I'm supposed to now pay more for something that almost every other vacc brand comes with standard - poor form....
Plus this model seems to have an unnecessarily harder bin empty mechanism (esp. for those with elderly or weaker hands). Show details

2years old replaced battery 3 x

I’ve replaced the head with a soft head which is much better on hardwood floors. I have also had to replace the battery 3x. I wouldn’t recommend this vacuum to anyone.

V7 Good product with excellent customer service

We've had 2+ years of use from our Dyson V7 but ran into problems just prior to its 2 year warranty ending. Dyson replaced the battery after assessing the fault over the phone. They sent a replacement battery (promtly) which rectified the problem.

I also experienced a problem with the Powerhead. It seemed to run intermittently and just recently stopped.

Prior to this problem, the machine had worked very well and has been used daily since puchased in 2020.

I've contacted Dyson and they have organised a replacement. Can I just say, full marks for their prompt service and standing behind their product for it was just out of warranty

Much appreciated! Show details ·  1

Great Vaccuum except for the battery

Its a great vaccum, works well, but the battery can go flat quickly, think it may be too small for our house size.

Doesn’t everyone have a Dyson stick?

I surely don’t know how I managed without one. Lugging out a heavy machine, pulling out a cable then dragging it around.
Mr Dyson must have been sick of it too and invented the stick. This must have changed the lives of many now to just charge and go. Charging around the house vacuuming with ease.
I, for one, am grateful!
Have been grateful since 2016! Show details

Disappointed with battery life

Happy with the vacuum when working but now have to send it off for 2nd time in 18 months. First time battery needed replacing after 9 months and now it won't charge. Seems it's not living up to the reputation and not meeting the advertised life that it should

Poor Battery and charger

I would thought the V7is an upgrade version of V6; it will increase the battery life span on V7.
But it still got no difference. I have used V6 in the past and V7 still repeating the same issue.
Took 3-4 hours charge, battery only can last 30min -40min run.
Dyson should provide fast charger and charger stand.
Nowadays fast charger is very common for vacuum machine. If your battery can't for long, at least to allow you fast charge and complete the cleaning.
No charging stand, no fast charger.
Others brand like Electrolux, they do provide a battery charger stand and its a fast charging port. Show details

V7 Vacuum

Purchased my V7 just over 3yrs ago ( now out of warranty) & the battery has died. Customer service not terribly helpful apart from asking did I want replacement battery at $139.00. I thought I was buying a good vacuum for the price but never again. I’ll be going elsewhere to buy my new vacuum!!

NOT SUITABLE FOR HARD FLOORS!

While I'm happy with the battery life of my recently purchased Dyson V7 I am unable to use it as it leaves marks on my polished wooden floors. Dyson claims that their motorbar cleaner head is universal, however please be aware it is not! All models should include "fluffy" cleaner head which is included in Dyson Absolute range of vacuum cleaners and was included in my old Dyson V6 Absolute which lasted about 5 years and did a great job. Disappointed .

Great and handy to use!

Awesome and easy to navigate on hard areas that a conventional vacuum would be tricky with a cord. Can use on stairs etc... Only downfall is the use time is not that much and needs to be recharged. Otherwise great product with no dust bags to purchase!

Dyson V7 is crap

Dyson V7 Motorhead stopped working 3 days before Christmas. If the motorhead stops then the vaccuum is useless. Did all the trouble shooting tips, nothing. Can buy new motorhead online for $195 if you can get one from dodgy online 3rd parties as Dyson have none in stock, what a surprise,(must be all the replacement ones they have to sell).. is ridiculous when the whole vaccuum cost $350. Feels like a scam by Dyson...inbuilt obsolecence of course. Very annoyed as had to buy a new vaccumm for Xmas Show details

Handy vacuum poor construction

I come from European brands and in my life span I bought 3 of them and I change them only because I wanted to upgrade.
I bought this dyson vacuum v7 and one morning the head just stopped spinning, I am an handy guy so I thought I can fix this so I took the head a part and I found the problem straight away, a very small connection wire was broken, technically an easy fix but at the same time impossible to perform as wires are deeply embedded and there is no way you can perform a repair so basically you have to throw away the all part and buy a new one for $198 I would call this poor construction.
I always had vorkwerk German brand never had a failure. Show details

Won’t be buying Dyson any longer!

After being a loyal customer since Dyson first launched back in the uk I have purchased Dyson above any other brand sometimes regardless of cost BUT now enough is enough- the quality is terrible and no longer is a brand I will purchase!
I have a cordless Dyson stick vac and the battery runs for exactly 4 mins and 53 seconds JUST OUTSIDE WARRANTY so Dyson expects me to purchase another battery- at cost of $120…. No thank you!!
The collection canister has also snapped and again Dyson expect me to pay for that and again I refuse!!
I’m now switching brands from Dyson and won’t be back due to their very shoddy products

Battery lasted just over 2 years

The battery was working fine (long battery life etc), until 1 day it just stopped charging. Didn't deteriorate at all, just suddenly stopped. Replacement battery costs $130 and only has a 12 month warranty. So disappointing. Show details

Virtually disposable. Don’t expect it to last more than a couple of years before something breaks

My grandmother had a vacuum cleaner that she used for years before passing it on to my mother, who used it for nearly 20 years before upgrading. That was nearly 30 years of perfect operation from a vacuum cleaner that cleaned just as well - if not better - than a modern cleaner.

At some point, we all got convinced that regularly replacing poorly designed and made vacuum cleaners is normal.

The charging socket on the unit has come lose and the charging cable can no longer consistently remain in contact with it, making the charging light flicker when plugged in.

This is also the second of the three Dyson's that I have owned where the battery will no longer hold a charge. There will not be a fourth. Show details

Battery doesn’t charge, tiny run time, pulses

Used the Dyson V7 on carpet- seems to suck quite well but starts to pulse pulse often on min switch and then fails to run. I clean filter and empty dust etc each use. Have checked it is charging properly but it appears to be fine until use. I feel it is not worth replacing the battery as I can’t trust this Machine quail out. Would never buy Dyson again- out of patience with this product. Show details

Great product if only the battery last longer that 2 minutes

The vacuum picks up all the dirt's and dusk really well. However, recently the battery lasts for 2 minutes.

Only had the vacuum for 2 years. Not sure if I should buy a replacement battery. Show details

Battery is awful even after replacing

I also purchased the V7 pink model. Battery started getting weak & failed right after warranty. Contacted Dyson to get a new a battery and they said it was out of stock for 6+ months but when it was back in stock it would it would cost $50 less than buying a whole new one at this point, so I bought an identical battery on Amazon that was in stock & had good reviews that one still is only working for about 2 minutes- if that. There is something mechanically wrong with this unit. Will never buy a Dyson even on sale again if it’s a throwaway & has to be replaced regardless after 1.5 -2 years. I’m sure there are cheaper throwaway units from other manufacturers. Show details
