SOURCE: My dyson dc17 won't turn on and stay on unless you

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.

  1. UNPLUG The Vacuum!
  2. Remove the cannister.
  3. Extend the handle and remove it.
  4. Remove the two torx (T-15) screws behind the power button, where the handle normally stows.
  5. There are four tabs holding the front plate containing the power button on; use your screwdriver to release them.
  6. Gently pull the front plate off.
  7. The switch on the right is the power button. Remove it, try clicking it a few times; if it sticks, great! Replace it and reassemble, otherwise you'll need to replace it.

    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...

    My dyson DC26 power button has to be held down to work


    Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

    I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC26's on/off button. You should not have to continually hold this down for the machine to work, so it sounds as if your vacuum may need a repair. If you can get in touch with our experts directly we'd be happy to discuss your option, and we can also confirm whether or not a repair would be covered under your Dyson guarantee.

    When you have your DC26 to hand, please give the Dyson Customer Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

    We'll look forward to speaking with you.

    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 can't open the filter housing on side of dyson dc26. i press the blue button, but nothing releases


    Hi there,

    Sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC26. To access the pre-motor filter, you may need to press the blue release catch very firmly - it can be a little stiff when the cleaner is new. You should find it becomes easier after a period of use. The video embedded below shows the correct way to wash the filters, which should be done at least once a month under normal use.

    If you have any further questions about using or maintaining your Dyson cleaner, please get in touch with us directly so one of our experts can provide further assistance. You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US).

    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.
