My Dyson vacuum has suddenly started to pulse and stop after a minute and keep repeating this.

Hello, thank you for using Howly.
Could you tell me the model number of your vacuum?

Customer Replay

Can't see anything specific on the underside label. Its an upright with a blue roller and had for under a year
It's a V8 animal


Thank you
Does it pulse as in start and stop successively?

Customer Replay

Yes it does

Please hold on for a few moments
Have you emptied the dust compartment?

Customer Replay

Yes, after every use.

Please remove the suction tube and check for any clogging of both inside the tube and the vacuum inlet port



Customer Replay

Yes there was something in there which shouldn't have been so will probably work now.

Please try and operate it to check if it works

Customer Replay

Managed to get it out and it's working OK now. Thanks for your help. Goodbye

You are welcome, *****!
Have a great day!
