I have a DC16 that has been very lightly used. When I press the trigger, it runs for just over a second and then stops with a solid red light. If I put the vacuum on it's side, it seems to run for two seconds before getting a solid red light.
I've cleaned all the filters. I read that the hall effect sensor might be bad so I did bypass it with a jumper wire, but it did not fix the problem.
I just noticed that if I try to suck on a nitrile glove to make it work harder, it will run continuously with a green light! Any ideas?
