Dyson dc35 Brushes quit turning after a few seconds--motor keeps running. It does this consistantly. No red flashing lights.


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your brush roller has stopped moving. General maintenance to your vacuum is crucial and will help it work at peak performance.

First things first lets focus on the brush roller. Unplug the vacuum and turn it on its side. Look for any noticeable clumps of debris or hair strands that may be caught in the brush roller. Remove these obstructions, probably best to do so with a scissor if it's hair or long pieces of carpet fibers. After removing the debris try manually rotating the brush roller to uncover other hidden clogs. Another thing to take note of is the condition of the bristles on the roll itself. Are they loose or worn down? These are signs that your brush roller is in need of replacing.

While checking out your brush roll you might as well take a look at your vacuums belt. Your belt should be replaced about every three months. After regular usage, the belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on the brush roller. Lesser tension diminishes the brush roller's turn rate and speed. If the belt feels loose then it certainly is affecting your vacuums suction as well as your brush roll not moving at all.

My dyson animal corless has a blinking red light and will not chareg. How do i fix this


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are possible reasons why your Dyson unit flashes a red light. If the red light flashes with the machine in the charger, the battery may be outside of its temperature range. Remove the battery from the charger and leave at room temperature until the red light no longer flashes when placed in the charger. Also, ensure that the filter is correctly positioned within the main body, with the metal sensor in the bottom left-hand corner facing the main body. If the problem still doesn't fix, I would suggest to get in touch with Dyson for more troubleshooting guide. Dyson number is 1-844-679-1647.

Why does it keep shutting off and the start button flashes red?


Hi Jim, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC28's on/switch and height selector pad are designed to flash in different combinations to alert you to any issues with the machine. If the on/off button is flashing red and no other lights are displayed, this suggests something is jamming the brush bar:

keeps-shutting-off-start-button-flashes-kfbnp2bw3njuiocelunhji5a-2-0.jpg To resolve this, please clear any obstructions from the cleaner head, and remove any threads or hair from around the brush bar. Our video guide shows you how:

Also te red light is blinking on my dc 28 animal vacuum


Hi Judi, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC28. If the red on/off is flashing, this indicates that something may be jamming the brush bar. To resolve this, please follow the steps shown in the video attached. Make sure there are no obstructions in the cleaner head, and carefully remove any threads or hair from around the brush bar.

You may also want to try raising the brush bar one setting higher using the hight selector pad, as the brush bar will shut itself off if you have it set too low for the carpet pile you're cleaning.

If you'd like some further help after you've given this a try, please email us directly at askdysonUS@dyson.com with your contact details. One of our experts will be in touch as soon as possible to run you through some further troubleshooting.

Best wishes,

My dyson dc 17 quit and a red light is blinking


Hi Colleen,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your Dyson vacuum. As DC17 doesn't have any indicator lights, it sounds as if you may actually have a DC28. If the red light is blinking, the machine may need resetting - to do this, please follow the steps shown in the video below.

If you need any further assistance, please call us free on 1-866-693-9766, or email askdysonUS@dyson.com
