Question about Dyson DC14 All floors Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
The vacuum turns on, but will only remain on if the power button is held down.
I just had this same problem tonight. As I was looking on this sight to find a solution, my husband fixed it. First he removed the extended handle part, then he took the 2 screws out behind the power switch and removed the front cover (directly underneath the power button). He then removed the plastic power switch cover and took the power leads off the switch and removed the switch and tapped on it, then the little button stuck in place:) Sounds silly but it worked! Good luck!

I tried this and it fixed my problem. 10 minutes later...the Dyson was up and running again.

Occasionally, customers have problems locking their Dyson vacuum in the upright position. This is a minor problem common with the Dyson DC07 and DC14 series and can easily be fixed by the customer. This page will show how to fix this problem. Although we show a Dyson DC14 Animal on this page, these instructions will work on any Dyson vacuum in the DC07 and DC14 series.
During shipping, moving parts on a Dyson vacuum can shift in position. One of these parts is a swinging arm in the base of the unit. This arm holds a removable elbow pipe in the vacuum's air passage. This arm can move out of the way so that you can clear out a blockage in the air passage. When this arm is out of position, the vacuum will not lock in the upright position. Fig. 1 Shows the base of a Dyson DC14 Animal locked upright. The red arrow points to the swinging arm. Fig. 2 shows the vacuum with the swing arm out of position. Since the swing arm is lower than it should be, it doesn't line up with the tab on the main body indicated by the red arrow.
Lean the handle of your Dyson all the way back and locate the black button on the right side of the vacuum indicated by the red arrow in Fig. 3.. Press the button down and hold it to unlock the swing arm.
While holding down the black button, pull the swinging arm (Shaded red in Fig. 4) all the way up. Fig. 5 shows the swinging arm in the correct position. Release the black button to lock the swing arm back in place.
The vacuum can now lock in the upright position as shown in Fig. 6. Note how the tab on the swinging arm overlaps the tab on the main body..
