Top tips...the title says it all. A thread where members can pass on their solutions to everyday problems. I'll start with a tip regarding the later Dyson stick vacuums (V6). If it starts 'pulsing', then cuts out after a few seconds, it means something is blocking the airflow. Usually, this means the canister is full, but if it continues to pulse after emptying the bin,  the most likely culprit is a blocked pre filter...the bit that sticks in the top of the machine. Pull it out and wash it under the tap and put on top of a radiator to dry. Check there's nothing trapped inside it...like dust and other rubbish, so turn it upside down and tap it to check...ours was full of polystyrene beads from when we had the walls insulated, and we hoovered them up. If that fails, buy a new pre filter.

Incidentaly, I bought an aftermarket battery pack from ebay when our original Dyson battery wouldn't hold charge after 5 years use. It's the same voltage, but a higher amp hour rating, so it lasts much longer per charge than the original Dyson one. It has the same blue charging indicator lights, which go out when fully charged, as per the original. It cost me £19.00 as opposed to £65 for a genuine Dyson one. 6 months in, and it still works perfectly.

On to you now...add your top tips that might help other members. :thumbsup:

Initially but it soon goes, I live in a hard water area so it also gets rid of limescale buildup

In my mind you're a superb singer sir.

And I'm not talking about your sewing talents.

I discovered when all my class apart from me were in the choir, that I wasn't a singer :laugh:

I discovered on my 60th birthday a few weeks ago that it's not a good idea to let your so-called "friends" choose your fancy dress costume....

They will all look cool in their stylish Top Gun outfits, while you will be forced to look like an utter bell end in an uncomfortable and ridiculous inflatable plane :laughing2dw:
