V8 Animal

We have hardwood floors throughout our house but we also have a long haired dog. I know the V8 animal is designed for pets and we are very open to that fact, however my question is, would the standard Dyson V8 do the job just as well [or close to as well] given the hard floor consideration or do you really only recommend the animal or animal plus version even with hard floors? Huge thanks!

Have tried repeatedly to register my new Dyson V8 Origin using the serial number on the base. Keep getting red notice that this number has no corresponding Dyson appliance. What now?

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.

I have a Dyson V8 Animal Extra Stick Vacuum. How long should it last off charge? I can barely get 10 minutes on maximum suction and slightly longer on high suction while vacuuming

Hi Depends if you use it in high speed or low speed and if it’s on carpet or on wood floor, we have wood and on low speed lasts around 15 mins without slowing hope this helps

Thank you Russell. Yes it does. Sounds about right as it does the same with me - on timber floors and on low speed it gives me 15 minutes as well

My new v8. I have charged it first use to max. However, after usage for the 1st time. I tried to charge it after 20mins cooling. No lights are on. Does this mean my power head is broken? My battery on 2 blue bars. Trying to charge. But no lights on when I plug it in. What am I doing wrong?

Can my charger be repaired? I can only get it to charge if I fiddle about with the cable in different positions until the blue light comes on. Seems to be a fault within the cable not at the plug ends.

V8 Absolute

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?
