I picked up a DC16 Animal last night and it's brilliant when it works! Cleans well (the mini motorised head is amazing), but unfortunately it cuts out every 10 secs or so, but when I blocked the suction off with my hand for about 1 minute it ran completely fine with no cutting out throughout that?! When I removed my hand so the machine could breathe again, it instantly cut out. I originally thought it was the battery, however I noticed there was a metal magnet sensor thing for the filter and made sure it's seated correctly, filters clean etc and it still does the same thing
Anyone reckon it's the filter sensor? Thanks
These filter sensors are really problematic and annoying, I hope they aren't on the V6/8 models.
