Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum\015 I have a Dyson DC28 Animal and it won’t release from the upright position. It is only 2 months old and was working fine. I emptied the canister after cleaning -clicked it back in place and the next time I tried to use the machine and put my foot on the front carriage to release the handle – it won’t budge.\015
How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?
Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced Vacuum Technicians :
Most cases of a jammed or stuck brush bar are quick and easy to fix, simply pulling the debris gently from the brush bar. Alternatively, if you need to clear a problematic blockage, you can take the brush bar out of the housing easily, for quick maintenance.
Unplug the vacuum and use the Dyson Ball Animal Hose Replacement Guide to remove the vacuum`s hose and check for clogs at the base of the hose. Next, check the hose itself. Feel along-side the hose to check for a blockage. If a blockage is present, use a tool to pull out the blockage.

the most relevant questions and answers related to your specific issue
.Please note……The Kirby has TWO safety switches that need to be engaged before it will operate. One is on the fan case in the front. It is activated by having an attachment attached to the front. (hose, power nozzle, etc.) .The other switch is on the side of the Kirby where the cloth bag attaches and is engaged by the little tab that sticks out from the side of the hard plastic cloth bag “boot”. The bag boot MUST be completely engaged to activate the safety switch and allow the Kirby to power on. If you are having trouble getting the bag to properly engage, (sometimes they are STUBBORN) simply lubricate the black gasket that the boot fits onto with gasket lubricator, VASELINE, or try a tiny drop of DISHWASHING DETERGENT or HAND CREAM. It doesn’t take much, so use the smallest amount possible to get the desired effect. You should hear a slight “pop” when the bag completely engages.
.If neither of these things are indicated, it is probably again, either the power cord, switch or the carbon brushes.
.If your Kirby is sparking there are a few causes…
.PROBABLE CAUSE (MOTOR): Worn out carbon brushes, bad armature or perhaps BOTH
.PROBABLE CAUSE (CORD): The cord has a short in it. Replace the power cord
.PROBABLE CAUSE (POWER NOZZLE): There is something metallic stuck in the fan or power nozzle
.I think you have a problem with the carbon brushes and amature because of where you describe seeing the sparks. I would suggest taking it to an authorized dealer for repair if it is the motor that is going bad.
