I’m getting a new body.
Paul has just been on a call centre queue for the past hour. I don’t think I ever want to hear Vivaldi ever again. We got quite excited when the wait time got down to ten minutes.
This morning my Dyson cordless cleaner died on me while I was vacuuming the bathroom. We checked everything. The battery appeared to be fully charged. We changed the filter. I shook it, I kicked it. Nothing, zilch. The only thing that seemed out of the ordinary was the on/off switch that didn’t seem to be working.
After checking the Dyson trouble shooting site we decided to ring their customer service department. The machine is under two years old and still under guarantee. It was worth the wait. They are sending us a new body. I hope it does the trick because my old Dyson is so heavy and unwieldy.
Rick is fed up, it is raining outside and he is sulking because he can't go outside and play. He says he doesn't like Vivaldi's Four Seasons any more either.
Damn. For a moment there I was going to ask where I could get one too. Mine seems to be wearing out.ReplyDelete
I definitely need some spare parts!Delete
We've just had a real downpour, so Lady M has decided to make a cake for Tea. Very wise.ReplyDelete
Ooh, cake for tea!Delete
Raining here too. I've had nothing but trouble with vacuum cleaners. Being on hold with customer service is a trial; at least you got through and will get a body replacement. Yay! My Dyson did not like dog hair. Now I am trying out Miele and Sebo.ReplyDelete
Rick doesn't obviously moult but the contents of the vacuum each day says otherwise.Delete
Why would a blonde bombshell require a new body?ReplyDelete
I'm more like a bomb shelter these days.Delete
Would you recommend Dyson? They are quite expensive and I've wondered if they live up to the hype on their commercials. -JennReplyDelete
I've always found Dysons very good for picking up dog hair, although quite heavy to manouevre. But I love my latest cordless version because it's so light.Delete
My old push-along Dyson is still the best vacuum I've ever had, and after 20 years is still picking up well, although the attachments hose is jammed, and I can't release it. I'm reluctant to take it for further repair in case it's no longer possible, and they decide to bin it. I'd rather have it as it is. I have three other vacuums, including a Kärcher wet and dry, but the old Dyson is the best. My cleaner prefers Henry, which must be all of 30 years old.ReplyDelete
Poor Rick, we can sympathise. We've just come back from our morning walk in glorious sunshine.
I remember going into Currys years ago to buy a fridge/freezer and coming out with a brand new Dyson vacuum instead! It kept going for decades but I had to leave it in France when we moved. Jealous of your sunshine right now.Delete
I exported my cordless Dyson to France where it did not qualify for service. Since back in UK I've had a new filter for ir FOC. Only trouble is the very small box for all the sucked up dog hair!ReplyDelete
I think the more recent cordless ones have a slightly bigger box although I have to empty mine every day.Delete
