Dyson V6 Animal Extra - Always cutting out in max mode
« on: July 05, 2021, 08:54:39 AM »
Hey guys,

Coming here to ask a question regarding my Dyson that just does not seem to work. I have chucked a new battery in the machine that is compatible with my unit and it runs on normal mode but as soon as it is swapped over to max mode, the unit cuts out after about 10 - 20 seconds. It will continue to do this which is frustrating.

Has anyone had similar problems and can recommend a fix. I have cleaned the unit with no results, tried a new battery with no results...is this a faulty trigger?! I am pulling my hair out at this!!

Cheers!

Does it cut out completely or pulsate?

It cuts out completely.

I got a fresh genuine battery and it is working fine. Just frustrating because it will work for 20 seconds or so in max mode, cut out and then work for another 20 seconds after pulling the trigger again.

Does it do this with the pole and motorhead removed too?

Strangely it did not. Seemed to continue. Any suggestions?

The cleaner head wants stripping down and servicing probably. They jam up as hair clogs where you cant see it. That makes the machine cut out. There will be a topic on that around here somewhere.

Unfortunately, I have already stripped it down and serviced the entire unit with no luck or change.

And you got the hair out from behind the drive cog? And the brushroll turns freely?
