Question about Dyson DC28 Animal Bagless Upright Vacuum
We've checked to make sure there isn't anything stuck in the brush head. When it's working it's sucking good.
Thanks for sharing this! One question, though, how do you take out the beater bar?

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC28. From what you've described, it sounds as if you may have the brushbar set at a level too low for the type of carpeting you're cleaning. If you select a higher carpet setting from the selector pad, you should find this resolves the issue.
However, if you've tried this and are still concerned, please call us free on 1-866-693-9766 - or if you email your details to askdysonUS@dyson.com, someone will be in touch as soon as possible to help.

I am so sick and tird of this happening to me- it seems like the sammlest things cause my brusj motor to stop. It has happend 4 times, 3 of which were covered under warrenty and cost $80 in shipping to have fixed everytime!!! I am now out of warrenty and refuse to pay that kind of money for a machine that was alreaydy over priced. So I would love to know if you found an answer to your question...

Hi- I have the same problem: suction fine, but the brushbar was not spinning. I went 1st to the Dyson site and went thru their troubleshooting guide and I'd done all those things, so I called Dyson (1-866-MY DYSON in the USA) and they walked me thru a very simple solution.
What worked was to "rest" the bare floor/carpet adjustment, and it's very easy! You do this by clicking the carpet to bare floor adjustment back and forth at least 5 times. Make sure when you end it's on carpet. Then tilt it back all the way from the upright position so it's flat on the floor and turn it onto it's left side. The carpet indicator should be below the word carpet. THAT WAS IT! As soon as I turned it on again, the brush bar is spinning great! I wish I could tell you right now how well it picks up, but unfortunately I took out the filter and rinsed it, so I have to wait until tomorrow to **** anything up. However, I'm sure it will work now that the brush bar is moving. Like I said, the suction was fine.
Just as an FYI--If you call, they will have you try other things to rule out other problems 1st. I had already done all the things suggested in their troubleshooting guide on their site and the only additional thing they asked me to try was to turn it on and tilt it back as though you are going to vacuum and make sure the suction from the top tube had stopped, as it normally does, and mine did.
Hope this helps!

Even though the brush is spinning, you probably need to replace the belt because it is stretched. It is probably slipping on the beater bar. bbDo you ever smell rubber burning while vacuuming? If so, it is the belt.
