Out of the Blue

I received a Dyson V6 cordless "stick" vacuum as a present from Subaru shortly after buying my car, which I think was to compensate me after I was inconvenienced by couple of unnecessary service trips. The vacuum recently started acting oddly, with the motor repeatedly cutting out like it had a pulse feature. Even though the problem sounds like a loose connection or a recharging problem, after some troubleshooting I'm pretty sure the culprit is a dirty filter. The confirmation of this is the motor runs steadily with it removed. This cloth filter is supposed to be rinsed once a month, but it never looked dirty, so I never bothered (it still easily passes the eye test). But after a year of neglect even a thorough rinsing does not seem to have set things right. So I've ordered a replacement, which are quite common and inexpensive, so I think I'm not the only one who's ended up in this clogged boat. On the other hand, though the price tag on this vacuum may have deterred me from buying one for myself, it is a pretty great appliance. I can definitely recommend it, especially if you can do like I did and get yours with other people's money.
