V8 Absolute

Do the filters on the V8 wear out. I have a V8 which is a few years old but the filters keep clogging or I think it is that as it splutters a lot. I clean the filters but within a short time it is off again. I have checked all the nozzle and there are no clogs there.

Thanks. Yes, I have found since that the problem seems to be the head not the filters. I will have to give that a good clean.

My dyson battery only shows 4 lights (2 on each side) when plugged in with no flashing lights to indicate it is charging. According to the manual there should be 3 lights on each side and when charging one should be flashing. Does this mean some of the cells in the battery are dead?

I did I purchased a new battery from the internet.
Not from Dyson about half the price and more powerful.
Solved the problems.
Although the advice from dyson came from Dyson Australia the UK are useless.

Do I have to hold down the red start button on the Dyson V8 all the time while operating it or is there a way of making it stay down on its own?

V8 Absolute

Hi - I have a dyson V8 absolute about 2-3 years old. The last few weeks I have noticed that the battery life is less and less - today it was 1 and half minutes. I store the V8 in its charging station so charing all the time when not in use. There does not appear to be any blockages and I clean the filter quite often. What do you think is the issue? thanks

You can, why not, though it’s not necessary, you can use it with min 20% of battery and battery lasts quite long.

Our V8 is 2 years old and has worked fine. Unfortunately, it fell over on a tiled floor and took a bang where the bin is located and now it won’t turn on..... no power, nothing. Could something inside the motor have dislodged ?

V8 Absolute

My dyson head roller has stopped spinning. I took the brush itself off and i can see that the edge of the motor ( which is supposed to spin the brush ) doesnt turn round.
I cleaned the head and cleaned the boday itself?
took all the head apart up to the motor - but still no change.
I have had this head for a year only - sounds quite unreal changing it for a new one for 80$... any help?
