Tip & How-To about Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Vacuum will not stay on/Switch will not stay "ON"

Dyson switches sometimes will not click in the "ON" position and will make you hold it in for it to operate. This has a basic fix that cost no money. Rubber mallet. hit the switch right on top like you were to turn it on but with the mallet. It may take several hits but fixes 90% of my switch issues. It is not a temorary fix either. I have seen one redo on those and it was due to cust abuse.

joint pops out


Very possibly there is a small black torx screw whack has fallen out or may just be loose. It holds that joint to the body casing.
The screw must be located and replaces in order to function properly but the ball covering your main motor has to be disassembled and sometimes removal of the motor is the easiest way to put the offending screw back into position.
Dyson has a 5 year warranty on many of their models so you may want to call their help line first. They can tell you where the nearest service center is and ,ay end up fixing the problem at not cost.

My Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright does not click to stay in an upright position. It works but the handle falls to the floor.


This is a common fault with the Dyson DC07 (and other Dysons) unfortunately the clip that holds the handle upright hs broken. It can be repaired, but will cost a reasonable amount to have done... I would just live with the problem and prop the vacuum cleaner against a wall when not in use.

power switch will not engage.


Possibly the micro switch is faulty or the switch isn't in its proper position in the machine. It could be a cable problem too. An electrical continuity test (with the power off) should prove where the fault is. hope this helps.

my DYSON DC07 upright vacum


the actuator in the switch is defective, you can replace just the switch. There are several places to get just the switch, just google "dyson dc07 parts" for places on where to get the switch.
