The Dyson V7 not charging problem can be a result of issues with your battery or charger, and while they’re both pretty easy to fix, it’s best to get them looked at by an expert.
I was in distress when I got this expensive product and still, it was not working. I asked various experts and tried various fixes and was unable to solve the issue.
After some time, I got it fixed by a friend who was a technician himself. Various fixes are as follows.
This guide will show you exactly how to diagnose the problem, and it includes some troubleshooting steps in case you’re not sure whether the battery or charger needs to be replaced.
If the problem persists after following this guide, you may need to contact Dyson support for further help, but if you can fix it yourself, the money saved will be worth it!
Clean Out The Charger
Over time, dust and other small particles can build up in your charger, causing it to short out.
First, unplug your vacuum from both outlets and make sure no hair or other loose objects are clogging up your power cord.
If that doesn’t do it, there is a screw-on one side of your charger that you can open to get at all of its inner workings—be careful when doing so. Once you’ve figured out what’s going on inside, you’ll be able to fix any problems and start using your gadget again.
Wait For 24 Hours
The best fix for a device that won’t charge is to wait. If your battery-powered device is refusing to juice up, all you can do is leave it alone and try again in a day or two.
Batteries need time to recharge, so if you don’t give them enough rest, they may not have enough oomph to fully charge even after an hour or two of plugging in.
Letting your gadget sit for at least 24 hours—maybe longer if you have an older model—should be enough time for it to recover from whatever stopped it from charging before.
Your patience will probably be rewarded with a full charge. If not, there are other fixes (listed below) that could help you get things up and running again quickly.
Buy a New Battery
If your battery is faulty or damaged, it’s time to buy a new one. The easiest way to tell if you need a new battery is by removing it from your device. Also, see if it has any charge left.
If it does, plug your vacuum in and see if charging will get you back up and running; if not, then you know you need a new battery. You can always try a more drastic method for testing.
Use your multimeter to check whether your Dyson has power running through its pins when plugged in.
Contact The Manufacturer
Before you do anything else, contact Dyson’s customer service team. Explain that your battery is not charging and inquire about their policy on replacing or repairing faulty products.
Most companies will offer a free return for defective products or swap out a broken model for a new one. Yet it’s important to understand their policies before you start opening up your machine.
You’ll also want to ensure that all of your information is backed up. Also if any content is stored in cloud services like Dropbox.
It might have been downloaded to your hard drive so you don’t lose it if they have to send your product back for repair.
If you can’t back up everything yourself, contact support right away so they can help make sure you’ve got everything covered in case something goes wrong.

If you’re still having problems with your Dyson v7 not charging, take it to a repair shop. There is a good chance they can fix your battery pack.
This can be especially useful if you are on vacation or away from home and don’t have access to tools.
If you do decide to do it yourself, make sure you have adequate lighting. You should also have proper tools, such as screwdrivers and such. Furthermore, make sure that your device is unplugged before doing any disassembly.
Also, consider taking pictures so that you remember how everything goes back together.
This way if something doesn’t work properly after repairs, you know where to start looking for problems!
