Having problems with your Dyson DC28 Animal Bagless Upright Vacuum ?

Red off/on flashing, roller brush not moving and no blockage

\015 The red on/off button flashing, roller brush clean and not moving, and no blockage can be found where the manual tells you to look. Vaccum fairly new and I don't vacuum all that often. Filters are fairly clean but I did wash them and they aren't quite dry yet. What else could the problem be?\015

Answers :

Don't have a solution for this problem, more like i have the identical problem after pretty much doing the same thing as the originator of this thread, washed/cleaned both filters, went over and cleaned up everything i felt needed it. reinstalled the filters(100%dry) and got the same problem too! I did not have it plugged in while working on it, but i DID have it on it's side while cleaning hoses/piping etc.
\015\012While i was double checking for "obstructions" as the user manual states, i noticed on the underside of the beater bar assembly (while looking at it uside down, it's toward the left side of the beater bar ) a little clear plastic window, and what looks like overloads with one not in the same orientation as the others (I'm a electrician , and quessing it's a tripped overload) What is was wondering is, is there a easy way to get at this overload and reset it, or is the plan of attack to remove the cover and go from there.(you'd think if they made it so easy to check a overload, they would also make it easy for a Dyson or other vaccum tech, to reset it?)
\015\012I'm hoping someone can help me (and possibly others in the same boat) quickly, before i decide to attempt a reset and spend extra time and trouble , when a easy answer from a expert out here will fix me up with a quick fix on this.
\015\012Thanks in advance!
Check That the belt drive is actually connected. Also at the rear there is a 90 degree bend This piece of pipe is also removable and the most likely place for a blockage.

This piece of pipe connects to the concertina hose and goes under the chassis near the R/Hand Wheel.

As you turn the Sebo on, the 2 red lights flash once and there is no motor. If you rotate the brush roller the motor starts. We've taken off the brush roller and put it back on and now it doesn't even start when you rotate the roller.

My purple Dyson Animal (without the ball) isn't working correctly. When I turn it on, the red power light, as well as the medium pile buttons flashes. When I first turn it on, the brush rotates for 3 to 5 seconds, then once I start moving the vacuum, it stops and that's when the lights start flashing. I've checked the filters, they are dry and installed correctly. What could be the problem?

I was vacuuming my room and all of a sudden I hear this loud noise, then notice the roller brush isn't spinning. Thinking too much hair was caught I separated it from the rod and hose to clean it out, but noticed that the roller brush didn't move at all while I was cleaning it. I've cleaned the brush before and it would roll around with little effort, but this time I couldn't move it at all. After removing hair and string I put the vacuum back together and started it up, but the noise continued,

My Hoover Windtunnel Mach 6.9 brush roller quit working. Upon investigating I found that the idler arm pulley was broken so I managed to replace that.

I don't know where this plastic piece connects. It appears to me that the idler are when raised creates tension on the belt which drives the roller. I'm at a loss trying to figure ou

Kenmore InteliClean 116.35923502 Two, I believe unrelated, problems. 1) The InteliClean sensor lights stay amber and red even when the machine is in the upright position and the suction line is disconnected from the cleaner head. 2) There is a lot of vibration and noise in the agitator roller housing.
