Dyson V6 battery premature failures
« on: March 17, 2019, 02:01:33 AM »
I finally repaired Dyson V6 Vacuum cleaner which had premature Battery pack failure. Dyson has serious Battery pack problem as I could find a lot of complaints on the Internet.

I tried to attach a step-by-step Modification guideline but this forum only allows 850KB. If interested, just let me know of your email ID.

I am attaching the Schematic diagram of the modification.

The attached schematic in the previous post has un-intended image. Correct one as follow;

Hi
Would be interested in seeing your work.
[edit - please use PM system]

Batteries i have found last around 2 years with average use, i don't think i have had many that have failed before the warranty expired.
My own personal machine battery was just starting to show signs of depreciation, so contacted dyson who replaced it free of charge.
Thanks
If it was assembled it can be disassembled - if we can't repair it then it probably isn't worth repairing !

Mail sent.

Li-Ion battery has 5oo cycles of charge/discharge life and even after 500 cycles, it should have around 70% of initial capacity. Assuming that I use Battery fully discharged in every 3 days, the battery should last at least 4~5 years. My battery died in 6 months even I used the cleaner very lightly. I see a lot of Red LED blinking failures of Dyson batteries on internet.

Folks, please use the PM system for email exchange and don't publish emails on the forum. You'll have every spammer in China offering you their wares.  :underchair:

Please teach me how to insert pictures in the post. I clicked "Insert image" icon but I don't know after that.

You attached pics in your first two posts...
Anyway underneath the text box there is in blue text +(Attachments and other options)

click on that then this will appear, then click browse to search your pics you want to add and that should do it.

That is if you are hotlinking, which isn't ideal as it slows the page load times down. There is a photo tutorial >>here<<.
