Is the machine pulsating?

Has the machine been fully charged to 100%?

The Dyson V11™ battery and monitoring system work together to gauge how much run time is remaining. The system calculates run time using an algorithm that ‘learns’ how your machine works over time. To get the best experience, we recommend fully charging your machine after every use. This helps the battery and monitoring system's algorithm to more accurately calculate and display remaining run time.

The actual run time of your machine remains unaffected while the algorithm learns to more accurately gauge remaining power.

The battery is designed to be left on charge permanently, and this will ensure that the machine is fully charged when it's next used. It will take up to 4.5 hours to fully charge your machine. Once the battery is fully charged, your machine won't use any more electricity.

Is there anything else we can help with?

If your machine continues to cut out even though run time remains on the screen, we recommend fully charging your machine, then using it continuously until the battery runs out. This should be completed within one cleaning session, but the trigger doesn't need to be held down throughout. We advise using Auto/Med mode for this clean. The more this process is repeated, the more accurate the algorithm becomes.

Please ensure the battery is charged to 100% after every use.

The machine has three power modes for different tasks. The overall run time is displayed on the digital display screen in minutes and seconds and will vary between each of the three power modes.

The overall run time can increase and decrease depending on the power mode, floor type and tool being used. Any change to the run time can take up to 30 seconds to appear on the digital display.

Eco

Maximum run time, for longer cleans. 60 minutes run time.

Please ensure the battery is charged to 100% after every use.

When the machine is placed on charge it enters an idle state, this reduces all power consumption ready for the next use. Due to this reduction in the power, when the machine is removed from charge and powered on for the first time it can display an incorrect run time. This is nothing to be concerned about. The machine will assess the charge capacity and current usage within 30 seconds, displaying the correct time on the digital display.

To reach maximum run time, the machine must first be calibrated. The machine must be fully charged approximately five times, each of the five charges, use the machine until it has no battery left.

Damp or musty

A damp or musty smell is caused when dust in the cyclone has come into contact with water.

It may not be a direct contact with water, for example when vacuuming pet hair that is slightly damp, this moisture will combine with the dust in the cyclone causing the smell.

Additionally the smell may occur if the filter goes back into the machine wet.

Only the filter and the two washable brush bars from the soft roller cleaner head can be washed. The bin can be cleaned with a damp cloth only, and both must be completely dry before being re-fitted to the machine.

Has any part of the machine been washed?

Were all the washed parts completely dry before the machine was used?

Damp or musty smell still present

Under normal use, any unpleasant smell can only be caused by something the machine has picked up. Please select pick up issues to carry out checks.
