How to replace battery on Dyson cordless vacuum? – Replacing the battery of the Dyson cordless vacuum is easy with the right tools, which I’ll share in this article. For this demo, Best Vacuum Cleaning will be using the Dyson cordless vacuum and Dyson V6 that is one of the many V6 options available.
How to replace battery on Dyson cordless vacuum?
Do you absolutely need to have your battery replaced? We’ll walk you through each step of this easy procedure. Get the correct new battery for your device, and then either watch the instructional video or read the detailed tutorial that is provided below.
Step 1: Remove the wand
Place the vacuum cleaner you are using on a table or other flat work surface. To remove the wand, first press down on the button at the top that is connected to the bin, and then slide it away from the button.
Step 2: Remove the bin
To remove the bin, press down on the catch that is located behind it. This is the catch that is often used to open the bin. After the bin has been opened, you will need to press down one more on the same catch in order to free it from the vacuum.
Step 3: Remove screw 1
You may get rid of the bin by depressing the catch that’s located behind it, which is the mechanism that you would normally use to open it. In order to change your battery, you will first need to remove two screws from the device.
To accomplish this, you’ll need a screwdriver with a Phillips head. The first thing to look for is a little screw that may be found in the grip of your Dyson directly beneath the MAX button. After the bin has been opened, you will need to press down one more on the same catch in order to free it from the vacuum.
Step 4: Remove screw 2
The second screw can be found directly below the battery, close to the spot where the bin was removed. To remove this, you’ll need to use the same screwdriver.
Step 5: Replace the battery
You can now easily lift out the old battery and swap it out with the new one, which will glide in and click into place once it is in the correct position.
Step 6: Reassemble your vacuum cleaner
Repeat the steps in the opposite order by first refitting the bin, then reattaching the wand, and finally unscrewing the screws to return them to their original positions.
Step 7: Test the vacuum!
Conduct a test on your Dyson vacuum to see whether or not the power has been restored. Your Dyson vacuum should be functioning normally once more at this point.

It would be much simpler to release the bolts if you could locate something with a rubber handle. Avoid using anything with a smooth handle since it may slide off your palm and cause damage to the vacuum’s fasteners.
Step 1: Empty the dust bin
You can empty the contents of the dust bin by opening the trap door and pulling the red lever that is located below the trigger.
In order to get ready for the subsequent phase, the first thing that needs to be done is empty the container out completely.
Step 2: Detach the dust bin from the body
Maintain your downward pressure on the red lever in order to unlock the lock that is securing the dust canister. Then you need to separate the body from the container. When the bin is removed, it will be simple to reach the second screw that is keeping the battery in place directly in front of it.
Step 3: Remove the two screws holding the battery in place.
The batteries are secured by two screws; one is located behind the handle, and the other is directly in front of the handle, just below the red release lever.
Bolt 1 (behind the handle)
Bolt 2 (below the release lever)
To remove the screw that is located behind the handle, you will need a screwdriver with a 0x55mm tip, and to remove the bolt that is located in front of the handle, you will need a screwdriver with a 0x60mm tip.
Step 4: Remove the battery
Once the two screws have been undone, remove the battery from the device.
Step 5: Attach the new battery.
Install the new battery and make sure both screws are all the way tightened to keep it in place.
If you are having difficulties tightening the two screws that are located behind the handle, you should push the battery higher so that the holes align with one another.
FAQs of Dyson V6 cordless vacuum
Can you change the battery on a Dyson V6?
Many people have the misconception that Dyson cordless vacuums are disposable. That is furthest from the truth. Yes, replacing a Dyson V6 battery is possible with the proper tools and knowledge of the steps. Just make sure to get a screwdriver set with a rubber handle, which will make it easier to loosen the bolts.
Replacing the battery will easily extend the life of any V6 vacuum further and the great news is you’ll have a myriad of options as far as replacement batteries. So that part of the equation isn’t a concern.
How long does a Dyson V6 battery last?
If you’re asking how long it will run, Dyson says that it will run for at least 20 minutes using non-powered tools. And based on my experience with Dyson products, their claims are pretty accurate.
For instance, the V11 Torque Drive has a claimed run time of 60 minutes, but tests reveal that it runs past the 70-minute mark. The V10 Absolute, in my tests, ran for around 61 minutes.
FAQs of Dyson cordless vacuum’s battery
How long is a Dyson battery good for?
There is no definitive answer about service life because it depends on a number of variables, including usage frequency and storage methods.
I’ve had my Dyson V6 Mattress for about four years, and the batteries are still strong. If you follow the recommended procedures for taking care of lithium-ion batteries, the V6 batteries should easily last for 4 or 5 years without seeing too significant runtime loss.
How can you tell whether the vacuum battery is damaged?
To avoid wasting your money, you should be sure the battery is defective prior to replacing it. The following are the signs of a bad Dyson stick vacuum battery:
Your vacuum’s runtime is shortened, allowing you to use it for a shorter period of time before it runs out of power.
On both sides of the battery, a red light is flashing more than 12 times.
Even after being fully charged, the machine might not switch on if the battery is absolutely dead, and it will obviously need to be replaced if there is any obvious damage to the battery.
What else might be the cause of the power problem?
You could also examine your vacuum’s charger and power setting to confirm if the problem is with the battery. If your vacuum is set to its MAX power setting, a defective charger won’t provide it with the power it requires, and it will also deplete its charge far more quickly.
