Stick vac not charging
Hi, I was using my beloved Ergorapido (20 months old, working well to this point), battery was probably getting quite low, when all of a sudden it cut out, but in a stranger way than usually when the battery runs out. The suction usually drops off for a couple of minutes before the whole thing cuts out, but there was still fairly good suction at that point - motor still quite loud.
I put it on to charge but nothing is happening. When I place the whole stick vac on the charger the charging light lights up for a split second but then goes off. Same thing when I put the hand vac into the stick vac body while on the charger. So there is some initial current happening but it's not going beyond that.
I know batteries are problematic on these units, but it's not a case of it gradually losing charge capacity - this was very sudden.
Any help appreciated!
