Does your Dyson v6 Absolute vacuum cleaner no longer turn on? Dyson v6 Absolute vacuums are susceptible to a range of problems that can cause them to stop turning on or showing any signs of life. Check the following possible causes to identify and solve the problem.



This Dyson vacuum cleaner is a cordless model, so it depends on battery power for operation. If the vacuum is not turning on, the battery may not be charged enough for normal operation. Check the LED light to determine the battery level. A solid blue light indicates that the machine is in normal operating mode. A flashing blue light indicates that there is no power, and the battery needs to be charged for a minimum of 3.5 hours. A flashing yellow light indicates that there is no power or that the battery is too hot or too cold. A flashing red light requires further assistance from the Dyson Helpline.


If the vacuum’s ‘On/Off’ switch is not on, the vacuum will not turn on. Check to make sure that the vacuum’s ‘On/Off’ switch is turned to ‘On.’


This Dyson vacuum model comes with an automatic safety system that will turn off the machine if it begins to overheat. If you find that your machine is turning off intermittently, the filter in your vacuum is most likely full and covering the ventilation system. Remove the filter, then empty and wash it. Allow the filter to dry for at least 24 hours, or until it is completely dry. Before replacing the filter, check and make sure that there are no blockages on the vents. Do not run the device until you have let it cool for at least half an hour.


If your vacuum no longer powers on even after it has been charged, the device may have a faulty or damaged battery. Use the Dyson v6 Absolute Battery Pack Replacement Guide to replace the vacuum’s faulty battery.
