Having problems with your Dyson DC28 Animal Bagless Upright Vacuum ?

My Dyson DC28 Beater Bar will stop turning then start again. Then it quits all together and after awhile it will start again.

\015 The belt is fine. The bar has no strings attached to it. It turns then stops and like almost when its cooled down it starts spinning again\015

Terrible noise My dyson was working great then started making this horrible noise. I cleaned the bar but noise is still there. I discovered the beater bar went around three passes then froze and started horrible noise again. my husband got the bar turning but after 2 swipes vacuuming it did it again. Can it be fixed or is it time to retire it and buy a new one. Wendy Kiser

Had my dyson root cyclone for about 4 years now, and in the last year it's had a few problems. About 4 months ago it started to make this awful grinding sound when the roller bar was engaged and I took it to a repair shop and they said it was the roller bar itself. The shop replaced the part and it worked fine for a couple of months and then it started to make the grinding noise again.

I have a dyson DC28 vacuum and the power button flashes on and off and the beater bar quit turning.

No suction Just received my refurb. dyson animal bagless. Finally figured out how to get it all together, turned it on and there is no suction coming up thru the beater bar. The hair is just collecting around the bar and not going up into the canister. It appears all the suction is going thru the open red end of the attachment hose, which has a vented cover piece. Am I missing a piece or is there a switch to turn of the attachment suction?


So the red hose isn't connected to a part on the vaccum so like it is connected to the connester but not to an opening just above the beater bar, this is the only idea i can supply you with. good luck, maybe i got lucky and helped you out. ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Dyson dc7 quits after a few minutes running; runs again after an hour or two of rest. Filters are clean, beater bar is clean, can't tell about the airways because I can't see how to get to them.

Replaces the belt on dirt devil dynamite pluse model put everything back together started it and it burt the new belt up that fast.

My Singer Izek sewing machine starts and stops and wont sew continuously. When I push down the pedal it sews about 2 inches then stops and light starts flashing, I have to let off of the pedal and push it again, over and over. It did this once before for awhile and then just started sewing right for awhile and now its started it again. I've checked everything.
