Question about Dyson Vacuums
I have a Dyson DC28 that is not working properly - it does not actually suck up any of the dirt on the carpet or the hard floor. The brush spins and there is a suctioning sound that sounds powerful, but the actual suction is very very weak. For example, it will not pick up dry rice that was spilled, or tiny leaves on the carpet from the dogs. Previously, I never had any issues with the Dyson sucking up everything. I have taken it to a service center, they checked it out and said everything seemed to be working. Help!!

Did you take it to a service center that does Dyson warranty work? If not you may want to. A DC28 is not easy to work on without the proper tools and repair manuals.

You have blockages check all the hoses & inspection ports onw at the back (U) shaped & one to the front left of machine.
Pull wand from flexi hose check for obstructions.
Remove long flexi hose from the rear of machine again check for blockages.

SOURCE: vaccum has no suction
Here is what we did to fix the problem of our vacuum having no suction.
We unscrewed the three screws on the back and took the hose off of the vacuum. Then we took the hose outside and put the water hose through the vacuum hose and turned on the water. After about 30 second the water pushed through a dust bunny the size of a fist and a marker. Basically, the vacuum did not have suction because the hose was clogged with dust, etc. After reassembling the vacuum, it worked just fine.

First remove the mini-emptor and check for a clog also check the fan for anything cloging that or the hose may be clogged

SOURCE: Poor Suction
I recently bought a second hand Dyson DC07. Its suction was poor. I removed all the un-clipable pipe bits and to remove any blockage but it all looked clear. The Final Sponge and hepper filter did have a lot of dust in it and the rotating brush was full of hair but nothing bad.
I eventual gave in to curiosity and removed the three screws in the top or the yellow removable dust collection tube and cyclone bit to see what was in there. The mechanism to release the flap at the bottom of the collection tube does not allow you to remove the lid completely but it does open far enough to get inside. I found the whole top section of the yellow plastic bit blocked by a big plug of compacted dust and a champagne cork. If you are willing to take the risk and have a torx 15 screwdriver handy it that part may be blocked. It did get a bit messy.
If I was going to attempt the same procedure I'd remove the dust collection unit from the vacuum cleaner as I did before, but leave the clear tube attached and the emptying flap firmly closed to reduce the mess from the dust falling out the bottom while cleaning the top part.

We had a similar problem with ours and had to finally take it to the repair shop. They informed us that we needed to replace our clutch and that you needed to do that every 2-3 years. It cost less than $100 and has been well worth it.
