Having problems with your Dyson DC28 Animal Bagless Upright Vacuum ?

I have a dc28 and the brush bar will run for a second and then quit have talked to Dyson and no help


Answers :

Hello, I have a similar unit and had to have a brush transmission put in mine. I did not get any diagrams about the internals for mine and the contraption was overly complicated. There is a gearbox and you have to buy the entire thing, "Sorry no belts, one preassembled unit" I was told.

\015\012Point is there may be something internal that can be cleaned if you take the sweeper transmission head off. I saved mine because I think I was lied to about lacking a replacement belt. If you can talk to Dyson again, ask if there is a limit switch for overheating and for a diagram for your sweeper head transmission.

\015\012When your brushes stop working, try to get a tester in the works Pronto to see if the current is cut off by a limit switch. The bottom end of your unit may not be the problem. I hope my comments help you get your unit fixed.

It seems that there is an obstruction in the brush bar which sets it to stop automatically.
