Question about Sharper Image Dyson Slim DC18 All Floors Vacuum
It will turn on when i press it, but immediately turns back off. Help!
OK...so while I'm sure that hitting the power button w/ a mallet will work...I was having the same issue and felt uncomfortable hitting my very expensive Dyson w/ a mallet.
Here is what I did to fix the problem I have a DC17...I am sure instructions will vary by model Here is what you will need: 1. flat head screw driver 2. Torx -15 screw driver.
1. remove the dust tank 2.Pull the extension tube (handle) out (as if you were going to vacuum a tight area. 3. there are 2 torx screws that you will have to remove 4. there are 4 retaining clips that you will use the flat head screw driver to unlatch. 5. After you remove the torx screws and release the 4 retaining clips, the front panel (that houses the power button) can be removed. 6. This will expose the actual power button itself. Most likely it was jammed. 7. Once you think you have fixed it...test out your fix. 8. If fixed...reassemble

Honestly, try hitting it on the top with a rubber mallet. The switch sometimes gets jammed. I use this repair all the time and never see a redo for them. Works on about 90% of the Dysons with that same issue.

My vacuum had this exact same problem, but was out of warranty because it was remanufactured. Thankfully, it's a very quick, five-minute fix.
