How long does the battery take to fully charge?

A full charge takes up to 5 hours.

Can I leave my vacuum on charge?

Yes, the battery is designed to be left on charge, to ensure your vacuum is ready for the next use.

Should I charge my vacuum after every use?

We recommend charging your machine after every clean to maximize run time.

How will I know if there’s a blockage in my vacuum?

Your machine will pulse to alert you if there’s a blockage.

How often should I clean the filter?

This will usually be around once a month, but may be more frequent if you use your machine more heavily. After cleaning the filter, always leave it to dry for at least 24 hours. You must ensure it's completely dry before reassembling. We recommend following the cleaning instructions and cleaning by hand. The filter is not suitable for dishwasher use.

What’s different about this Motobar™ cleaner head?

We’ve re-engineered the Dyson Motobar™ cleaner head to include de-tangling technology. While it still powerfully sucks up dust and hair from all floors, we’ve added a de-tangling comb that automatically clears hair from the brush bar.

How does it de-tangle hair?

The de-tangling comb on the brush bar has 56 polycarbonate vanes to prevent tangling around the bristles. The comb is always in contact with the brush bar as it spins to prevent wrapping, so hair is sucked straight into the bin.

Does this vacuum connect to the Dyson Link app?

Your machine works independently and doesn't currently connect to the Dyson Link app.
