Question about Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
This should go without saying, but the first step is to unplug the machine. Next, open it up and remove the bag. Now you will need to remove the lid. There are white plastic clips on either side that you must carefully disengage by pushing them towards the center of the machine. Click the picture above and you can see that the right side clip has been disengaged. Once the clips are disengaged, the lid can be lifted clear of the body. Note the thin black plastic tabs on the lid that insert into slots in the body. Set the lid aside someplace safe where nobody will step on it. As an aside, I have twice replaced the dust channel, the fragile black piece of plastic visible at the top of the lid. Fortunately it is not a terribly expensive part and it is very easy to replace because it is only secured by four screws. Go back to the vacuum cleaner body. The next step is to remove the air filter. It is secured by two fairly obvious screws. These screws also hold down the switch assembly, which we will remove in the next step. But for now, go ahead and remove the screws and lift off the air filter. Put it aside where you won't lose it. Here you can see that the air filter has been removed and we are ready to remove the switch assembly. At this point the only thing holding the switch assembly to the body is the electrical connector underneath, and a plastic pin or two. Get a good grip on the switch assembly and lift it straight up with a firm but gentle tug. This is the underside of the switch assembly after it has been removed from the body. The white rectangular electrical connector in the center mates to the black rectangular electrical connector in the body, seen on the next picture. Put the switch assembly in a safe place until we reassemble the vacuum cleaner. Here we see the body with the switch assembly removed. We're almost there. The next step is to remove five screws, one of which at upper left is hidden in a deep recess. Click the picture above to see the location of these screws. The five screws have been removed. Carefully flip the vacuum cleaner over so that the black bottom and the wheels are pointing up. Here it is, belly up. Nothing is holding it together at this point, so just lift the entire base (the big black part) off and set it aside. It is not necessary to remove the rubber bumper that goes all the way around the outside of the base. As I learned the hard way, It is difficult to reattach. The inside of the base is likely to be pretty grungy. You could clean it up a bit with a damp cloth (I did), but there are wires in there so I wouldMrs Cleaner - dsc04908t.jpgo wet. At last! The Miele's innards are exposed. The motor is at the bottom of the picture and the cord winder is at the top. Remove one screw securing the cord winder electrical connector and then disconnect the electrical connector. You may now lift out the cord winder and replace it. I was also having an intermittent electrical connection problem which I thought was related to the problematic cord. It turned out to be an unrelated problem with one of the electrical connectors in the center of the machine, pictured above. Part of the plastic clip designed to hold the connectors together was cracked. Unfortunately I did not have a replacement part, so for now I wrapped some electrical tape around the connector to hold it securely together. This seems to have done the job. But the next time something else breaks on this Miele, I will order this part too and replace both at the same time. Follow the instructions in reverse to put your vacuum cleaner back together.I hope you found my little tutorial useful.

I can't see your vacuum so I'm guessing here, you need to take the handle apart to get to the switch and then replace the switch with another one, and possibly the handle if its broken also, you will need to take note of how the wires are set up right now write it down on paper or somewhere so you know how to wire it up correctly again.
it maybe best if you take the vacuum to someone who has experience in electronics and can fix it for you.
