If you have a rubber mallet tap it slightly hard than tapping. Use it all the time. If not take it in for service for new switch. Rarely replace those use that repair at my shop daily.

My Power head on my Dyson Animal DC39 will not stay spinning. Suction Issue?


There should be a red insert on the right-hand side on the cylindrical bulge behind the brush cylinder. Check that this is moving when you push the button. The red insert should stay pushed in for the brush to rotate. The insert moves in an out as well as rotates in order to lock in the 'in' position. Mine is a little sticky on the rotation and I need to shake the brush head a little in order to get it to rotate and lock.

My unit is a little over 2 years old, and I cannot leave the power button in the on position on the main unti any more. The power was controlled by the vacuum power nozzle whether I was using the carpet...


Why can't you leave the power switch "on" ?

Does it stay running, ot does it not run at all?

if it stays on, the power probably isnt controlled by the power nozzle, but may be controlled by a door switch on the flapper doors where you insert the hose... Make sure all the "flapper doors" are completely shut, there's probably one stuck a little open I'm guessing...

Power button not engaging...vacuum will not stay


The power button is worn out and needs to be replaced. That vacuum is pretty simple. So even if you don't know how to take it apart it shouldn't cost much to have it repaired.

Dyson Animal on button wont stay on.


That's the problem with dyson. They work for the first few months then start to break down. Your switch might need replacing or your cord connection is lose and causing it to short out and turn off.

Power won't stay on unless you hold the button down . How can I fix this and what is the problem?


You can't fix this problem yourself - a repair dealer needs to open up the button and inspect the power switch - call the Dyson helpline, they will find the closest authorized dealer in your area and if your machine is still under warranty it'll probably fixed under warranty for you.
