Hi Craig,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC28. Your machine is equipped with a safety device which shuts off the brushbar if something jams it. Once you've checked the cleaner head for obstructions, and removed any threads or hair from the brushbar, you should be able to reset the machine. The easiest way to do this is to follow the steps shown in the video below.

This should resolve the issue, but for any further assistance with your machine, please call us free on 1-866-693-9766 - or if you email us at askdysonUS@dyson.com, someone will be in touch as soon as possible to help.

Best wishes,

Jack

No suction or brushes turning after auto shutoff


Make sure that there are no clogs in any of the hoses. Also, check any belts. Make sure that they are in place and they are spinning.

The brushes do not disengage when in upright position


Set the brush control, as needed. The brush control turns the brushbar on the underside of the vacuum on and off. The button is located beside the power button, on the top-front of the vacuum cleaner. Turn on the brush control for cleaning carpet. Turn off the brush control for bare floors or delicatelb_icon1.png rugs..

Hoover F7458-900 SteamVac The brushes quit


My Hoover F7458-900 was doing the same thing, brushes not turning and since it is about 7 years old and out of warrenty I decided I had nothing to lose so I took it apart after reading all the other posts on this problem. The brushes are actually turned by a turbine motor (no belts involved) that runs off air produced by the vaccum motor of the unit. The air turns a metal spindle that then turns several nylon gears in the turbin the last of which turns the brushes. The nylon gear that engages with the metal spindle was worn down to the point that it was no longer engaging with it and thus not turning.
The only fix for this problem is to buy a new turbin motor which is not that expensive about $34 plus shipping since they don't sell just the nylon gear. Hope this helps

Hoover steam cleaner spin scrub brushes wont turn cant find belt


Two checks:
(1) Remove the brushes by pulling down on the two ends. Is the squaare drive pin present on top of one brush? It should be about 1/4 inch square, and two inches long. That connects the brush to the drive mechanism.
(2) Remove and clean the inlet filter. It is in a red panel, behind the brushes, under the cleaner. Squeeze the two panel tabs together, and pull down to extend from the base. Cleane the hair/debris from the filter screen.

6 rotating brushes


When you turn on the Vac with the brush strip NOT installed does the part that engages the brush strip turn at all? If so, when you install the brush strip see if the will turn when no pressure is applied to the brushes (tilt the Vac back). If none of this works, then the switch that engages the brushes when the unit is not fully upright may be broken. If the part that engages the brushes turns but won't turn when the brush strip is engaged then one of the parts that mate up it most likely stripped. Let us know what you discover!

Brushes stopped


Most likely the turbine is bad, it may just be clogged up, you can take it apart and clean it out real good. That may work, but it may not. Sometimes it is best to replace the turbine.

Hoover F7220900 Brushes don't turn


First off make sure that the filter inside the dirty water tank has a gap from the top of the cover to the top of the filter. The must comment problem when the brushes dom't turn is either the brush block, the shaft that goes into the turbinge broke off. If brush block is ok, then the turbine is bad and will have to be replaced.
