SOURCE: I have the dyson dc07

Hi there Carole, VacuumGuru here.
I have made a video on how to access the brush roller and clutch for a dyson DC07 vacuum cleaner. It will be a really good place to start so you can see how it comes apart. If you have more queries after watching the video I am more than happy to help.
If you need to buy parts for your dyson vacuum cleaner try vacuumspot or nelsonvacuums (both online).
Hope this helps :)
Please take the time to leave a testimonial if you find this info useful.

The switch is in a cover held on by screws and tabs. Remove the hose and wand to gain access to the screws and tabs. After removing the screws, push on the tabs to release them and the cover will come off the front of the machine. Be very careful removing parts so you will know how to put them back together.

How can i remove a switch cover to a dyson dc04


Hi, it's Cindy from Crucial Vacuum.

It is possible to replace the DC04 switch. Unplug your vacuum and remove the cyclonic assembly on your vacuum. Using a screwdriver, unscrew the switch cover. You may need to shimmy the switch cover off then the old switch is easily removed from its connectors and the new switch can be connected. Screw the cover back on and place the cyclonic assembly on and your done!

Dyson DC 25 power switch replacement


It a fairly straightforward procedure. Remove the accessory hose to expose 4 torx screws from behind that hold the front switch cover in place. After removing the screws, gently pull the front switch cover and carefully pry two plastic tabs apart using a small screwdriver that "snap" cover in place. The switches will be exposed. The electrical connectors each have a tiny lock button at the base of the terminal that you need to push to remove. Otherwise they won't pull off easily. Assembly is reverse with one note: You'll have to hold the plastic cover and push buttons together so they don't fall out as you place the the cover back on. Once you get it on, the plastic tabs will hold until you install the torx screws. Be sure to retest the push buttons to make sure there was no binding in reassembly.

If I may add one more thing- I believe all DC25's carry a 5 year warranty and switch failure is covered. I replace these routinely. If you call Dyson, they will likely refer you to an authorized repair center for replacement at no charge.

HOW DO YOU REMOVE THE DYSON04 SWITCH


Dyson sell a bent screwdriver.....
bent_scewdriv_o_c-c_1237472604.jpg
.... to make it easier to remove the switch cover:
802115.jpg
I have used an ordinary screwdriver pushed into the tiny gap between the flat side of the switch cover (see picture above) to force the 'tooth' away from its housing, and then pull cover off.
Underneath is a torx-headed screw, which when removed allows withdrawal of the switch assembly.

Will not stay on.


Hi There,

Most likely your switch has gone bad, and you'll need to replace the on/off switch on your Dyson DC07. If you have to hold down the switch in order to keep the vacuum on, this is indicative of needing a new switch. Unfortunately this is very common problem on the Dyson vacuums . The switch that Dyson uses for their vacuums is one of the cheapest switches on any vacuum on the market today. The good news though is that this is not a extremely difficult repair to fix.

I took oictures of replacing the switch assembly on one of our customers repairs they brought in. It was having the same exact problem that yours is, it just wouldn't stay on. Here's how you can fix the switch on your Dyson:

- T15 Torx Bit Screw Driver
- Genuine Dyson DC07 & DC14 Replacement On/Off Switch Part 901181
- Needle Nose Plyers
- Patience (haha)

The switch above is actually a link back to our site if you have yet to purchase the switch yet. We carry most every Dyson part.

IMPORTANT: MAKE SURE YOUR VACUUM CLEANER IS UNPLUGGED BEFORE DOING ANYTHING ELSE!

Step 1. First thing you'll want to do is to unwrap the cord from the machine, and remove the handle from the upright part, then slide the hose all the way down the wand, and remove the hose from the handle assembly completely and set it aside. Also remove the dust bin assembly completely from the machine as well.

Step 2. Once you've remove the handle from the machine I find it easier to work on if you lay vacuum2_bing.gif on it's back, with the switch button facing upwards. Now remove the T15 Torx bit screw that is directly below the switch actuator. I have circled the location of this screw in the picture below:


080ce87.jpg
Step 3: After you have taken off the screw, you're doing to need to remove the switch box housing from the vacuum that the screw was securing. Simply use your flat head screw driver, and pry the two small arms upwards. Be careful when prying, the plastic components on Dyson vacuums2_bing.gif are really cheap quality plastic, and I can't tell you how many times I have seen these plastic parts break when customers bring in repairs to us here at govacuum headquarters. Here's a picture of the location of where you should pry the switching off:


357199b.jpg
Here's what the vacuum should look like after the switch housing has been removed:


eb76162.jpg
Step 4. Use your needle nose plyers to remove the terminals from both of the switch poles.


0ebca47.jpg

Step 5. Take out the new switch assembly. I find it the easiest to use my needle nose plyers to reattach the wires to the new switch, but it also can be done with just your hands. Connect both wires to your switch. If the cords have come loose while you have been working on the vacuum, you'll need to put the wires back into their proper places as well. This is how the switch and the wires should look like when you're done:

Step 6. Once the switch and cords are back to their normal places, simply put the switch housing cover back on, and screw in the one screw.
