the flashing light is to tell u that there is something blocking the suction of machine , most times its a full dust cup or hepa filter blocked this if allowed to continue will over heat the motor so it shuts off to prevent motor damage

When i run the vac the light flashes


Hi Chris, it's Jack at Dyson.

Your DC28's selector pad and/or on/off switch will flash to let you know if there's an issue with the vacuum. This could mean that something is jamming the brush bar, or that the vacuum is set to the wrong height for the type of flooring you're cleaning.

To check the cleaner head for any obstructions, and to remove any threads, hair or other debris from the brush bar, please follow the steps shown in our video guide:


This should resolve the issue, but if your machine continues to flash, please contact us directly so we can talk you through some further troubleshooting checks. You can reach our experts by calling 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1-877-397-6622 (CA).

Dc31 flashes green


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

Usually if the indicator light flashes green when the trigger is pulled, this means the machine needs to be charged. If you have had your machine connected to the charger assembly for over 3.5 hours and continue to see the flashing green light, this could mean the machine isn't recharging correctly.

In order for us to diagnose which part is at fault we'd need to take you through some simple diagnostic checks when you have your machine to hand. You can reach our experts directly on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

We'll look forward to speaking with you.

No power but lights flash


Is there a reset switch. Most vacuums have one some where near the bottom brush, to protect the vacuum from overload. If the vacuum tripped, the vacuum will not work until you've pressed the reset switch. If you can't find one, pls check manual.

I have a Dyson DC28 animal vacuum and the beater brush will not turn. It has one flashing white light and a red flashing light.


It appears that the drive belt is not adjusted properly or has stretched. THe gunk that vacuums pick up can also affect the belt in amking them too slippery to drive. Check it out.

Blinking lights - no roller ball movement


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC28. If the red on/off switch and all 4 white floor setting buttons are flashing, you'll need to reset the machine by turning it off for at least 30 seconds. This should resolve the issue, but if the buttons continue to flash, please check the cleaner head and brushbar for obstructions as shown in the video below.

For any further advice or assistance, please call us free on 1-866-693-9766 or email us at askdysonUS@dyson.com so we can help.

Best wishes,

Jack

Flashing lights.


The Flashing lights indicate several different things. 1 flashing red light means its time to charge your unit. if it is still flashing after charging then you will more than likely need to change the battery. A flashing red and green light means that the unit is overheating which could happen if the filters need to be washed, or that there is a blockage or if your machine has been left in direct sunlight. Allow 1 hour for machine to cool down. 3 flashing lights indicated that the pre-filter has been put on incorrectly. I hope this helps. If you do decide to wash your filter dont use any type of soap it is not needed and allow fiter to dry for atleast 24 hours. putting a wet or damp filter in will damage your machine.

The on switch light and all floor height buttons continually flashing


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC28. Four white lights flashing along with the red on/off switch indicates that the cleaner needs to be reset - you can do this by turning the cleaner off for at least 30 seconds before attempting to turn it on again.

If you're unable to resolve the issue by resetting the cleaner, it's probably best if you get in touch with us directly so we can run through some troubleshooting over the phone with you, and recommend the best course of action. You can call us free on 1866MYDYSON - or if you email your details to askdysonUS@dyson.com, someone will be in contact as soon as possible.

I have just switched my singer 7463 on and all the lights on the stitch selection are flashing and it won't sew.


Most probably a threading issue. Turn off machine and be sure top transparent path is threaded correctly. Turn machine back on.
