The switches stick on those units. You can unplug it and take the switch cover off, and pull the stem up and the switch to loosen it. I usually put a dab of penetrating oil on it and never has an issue again.

    The power button on my Dyson DC19T2 won't stay on


    The switch is broken. If you are handy, remove the old switch and match it up at a hardware store or a Vacuum repair shop. It shouldn't cost much to have it replaced by a proffessional either.

    I have an XL Silver Upright Vacuum with a docking Station. Bag will not stay on and dirt & dust builds up inside the Vacuum. Big mess to clean out. Also vacuum is hard to push. Is it because BAG...


    The docking station is not on properly...Make sure that you have the outer (permanent) bag pushed down over the lip of the vacuum. The docking system needs to be behind the lip also. This keeps both the inner and outer bag firmly attached. If it is hard to push, you may look into replacing the roller brush. They start breaking down..kinda like a toothbrush. It will make it extremely hard to push.

    Hi there,

    Sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC27. In case you haven't already tried this, make sure you press down firmly on the power switch when turning the cleaner on. If the switch still won't stay down, it's probably best if you get in touch with us directly. One of our experts will be happy to run through some troubleshooting over the phone with you, and recommend the best course of action. You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US).

    My dyson dc14 all floors won't stay on when I press the power button. I can hold it down and it will work, but that makes cleaning very slow.


    Quick Fix...takes 4 minutes max

    Remove the switch by using instructions here:

    http://www.sparesaver.com/vacuum-spares/help-and-support/dyson-section/dyson-technical-advice-450/dyson-dc14-technical-advice-474/replacing-the-cable.html

    (The was an additional torx screw 3 " below the one in the directions...yours may have this too...just remove)

    Then...While holding the body of the switch in one hand, use your other to hold both contacts between your thumb and forefinger and gently place pressure on each contact in the opposite direction, just like screwing a nut onto a bolt. Press the switch down while applying this torque and see if it sticks. If it does just bend the contacts slightly and continue pressing the switch to ensure it holds. Reinstall switch.

    I still advise buying a switch from amazon for $4.00 and replacing it but this will help you to continue to use your vacuum in the meantime without having to hold the button...
