BOLT Lithium - No Power | Model 1954

If you experience power issues with your Bolt, here are some tips.

  • Make sure your machine is properly charged.
  • Plug in the adapter to a grounded outlet and plug the other end into the port on the charging base.
  • Then place your vacuum onto the charging base.
  • An alternative method to charging is to plug the cord directly into your machine.
  • Be sure to use only the charger supplied with the Bolt.
  • The label on the detachable hand vacuum will list which charger can be used.
  • You will know it is charging if it is blinking red or blue
  • If no lights are lit when attempting to charge, try testing a different outlet in your home with a small device such as a cell phone charger
  • While charging, it will go from blinking red to blinking blue
  • The battery is fully charged when the LED lights show solid blue for 10 minutes and then flashes once every minute after that
  • Now try and use your Bolt.  If it turns off shortly after turning on and starts to blink red, your brush may be bound
  • Remove the foot by pressing the button on the lower back and pulling off.
  • Now turn it off then back on without the foot.  If it turns on and runs fine you need to clean the brush
  • Turn over the foot of the machine to expose the brush roll
  • Slide the tab down to unlock, then lift the corner cover piece
  • Grab the brush roll and remove
  • Clear any hair or string from the brush ends, around the brush roll, and where it connects to the foot.  
  • Place the brush roll back into the foot, then secure it into place by locking the tab.
  • Replace the vacuum body into the foot.

We hope your power troubles are resolved!
