How old is your V6?

4less than 4 years old and this is the second battery
Expert:  JamesI replied 8 days ago.

Typically the Dyson battery would last about 2 years, to confirm when using the vacuum the the light flashes red and stops working?

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
No the light flashes blue and the machine stops working
Expert:  JamesI replied 7 days ago.

Right a blue flashing light does indicate the battery is depleted and assume you are confident its charging up properly on the docking station.

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
it is
Expert:  JamesI replied 7 days ago.

Right then it would suggest the charger is working and the replacement battery has failed.

Did Dyson replace the previous battery under warranty?
