Question about Dyson DC28 Animal Airmuscle Vacuum 00247

1 Answer

My Dyson DC 28 works great, until I remove the bag to empty it. I reattach it, clicking it carefully in place, but then I release the "tilt" thing to vacuum carpet, and NO SUCTION! I have to keep taking the canister off, and pushing it back on as. I push the handle section forward HARD til it also makes a LOUD click, then suction comes back...til the next time I either remove canister, or use attachment. Even just taking attachment out (leaving canister on) will cause this problem. It seems to be something to do with putting it upright, then trying to get it back into position to vacuum floors/carpet.

On the back of the Hoover is a couple of parts you can remove, one is a u bend which will trap heavier parts which resist the suction so get stuck in the bottom of this, and the other part is usually on the right at the bottom which is an acces point to the very art which you hear click. In the upright position it directs the vacuum suction up the extendable pipe, but when you pull the handle back, it should gently glide from one direction over to direct vacuum suction to the bottom plate. It's tha part which is getting stuck in the handle sucking direction. I'd check to see if it is physically damaged in any way or if something is tapped in it like a coin or something. Good luck

SOURCE: No suction in upright position

Check the adapters at the bottom. They're supposed to move cleanly when you lower the handle. It's pretty obvious if there's an air gap when you lower the handle, and you should hear the suction in the air gap.

And...call Dyson...their support is great!

SOURCE: Dyson won't go back into upright position to engage suction

The dyson.com website had a solution for this particular problem. Just press in a button in the area around the right wheel while lifting the rear of the vacuum up. This allows the base to roll forward enough to go back into the upright position. I did this and it worked. All fixed.

SOURCE: beater bar on Dyson upright won't turn when handle is lowered

I have finally fixed my sister's dyson dc 15 beater bar problem. It was just 2 tiny broken wires connect to circuit board lead to the beater bar. The wires broke where they go through the black rubber gommet. You need a torx screwdriver tx 15 to remove 2 plastic covers to access the wires. When looking at the front of the vacuum, the gray covers located on the right side of the vacuum. 1 big cover with a black rubber gasket and other small gray cover is on the rotating ball area.
This my new year resolution is to warn people not to buy Dyson vacuum cleaner ( Junk) design to break down! Shame on you Dyson!!!! Save your money find good old vacuum cleaner with metal parts.

OLD IS IN NEW IS JUNK!

Happy New Year!

SOURCE: Suction loss when handle is tipped back to clean carpet

Ours did the same thing. I cleaned the filter and canister thoroughly. It needed to be cleaned, but that didn't fix the problem. I removed the plate under the carpet brush bar (three quarter-turn screws) and removed all hair, lint and threads from the rollers and brush. THEN my husband found the real problem: a piece of flexible hose running from the head into the hose (on the left side when behind the vacuum) was completely clogged. The hose will detach from the head, and you can remove debris. Once that clog was removed, the hose easily re-attaches, and we had great suction once again.

Dyson 25 canister release spring


It should be placed behind the catch (button). If the button retainers are not broken off, just place it under the catch and snap it back into place.

I have a dyson dc 28 and I can't release the handle from the base so I can vacuum


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty reclining your DC28.

It's possible this could occur if an item such as a pen or pencil has been accidentally vacuumed up, and is jamming the changeover valve mechanism. This is easy to check for - after turning off and unplugging the vacuum, lie the machine on its side and open the duct inspection port, then remove any objects or debris:

If you can't find anything, but continue to experience difficulty reclining your vacuum, please get in touch with our experts directly so we can provide further assistance. You can reach us on 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1-877-397-6622 (CA).

Remove the dust cup by pressing the button on the top of the cup.
Pull cup out.
Place over garbage can or into a bag and press the red button.
Shake a bit until cup is empty.
Return cup to holder and secure it by pressing in until it clicks.

How do I reattach bin on my dyson?


Place the bin on top of the filter housing, with the bin tilted slightly away from the vacuum, then while the bin pressing down and towards the vacuum keep pressing until you hear it 'click' onto the latch. Sometimes it helps to lift up the latch while you are installing the bin and then let go of the latch once the bin is installed.

Hi,

Try this quick repair and see if this fixes your Dyson:

Step 1.
Turn power off and unplug the machine.
Tilt the machine backward to a 45° angle.

Step 2.
  • Hold the section under the airway inspection pipe.
  • The black forward lock button must be held down simultaneously, otherwise the valve carriage will not move.
  • Pivot this section upwards until it clicks into place.
  • Release the black button once the valve pipe carriage is moved up into place.

    • The cleaner head should now slide underneath the part you have just clicked into place.
    • The machine should now stand upright.
