How to put a switch in or do i need new one

By the question you asked I assume it wont power on. More than likely its not the switch . More likely its the power cord because it get most of the abuse. you will need a meter in any case to find out . If you don't have a meter you can pick one up for under $10 at any hardware section of most Dept store chains. A good investment. turn the meter to the omega symbol Looks like an upside down horseshoe with feet. touch the leads together meter should zero. place the probes across the end of the power cord plug. One on each tab. watch the meter and flip the switch while holding the plug and probes together. if the meter doesn't move the switch is probably ok. usually the cord plug or the strain relief going into the machine wares out but check the cord for cuts or unusual ware first. if you dont mind a few inches missing remove the bad area of cord and replace. to verify its the swich or not pull the unit apart and put the meter leads across the switch and toggle the switchthe meter should change from zero the some high number. Good luck have fun and learn !

How do I change the on/off swich on a DC08 allergy

Hi there,
The switch failing is about the most common problem for the Dyson DC08. I have made a video of how to access the switch compartment and change the motor too if needed. Once you can see the switch it simply unclips and a new one goes in. Have a look at the video I think it is pretty straightforward. If you need somewhere to buy the switch check out nelson vacuums or vacuumspot.
Please take the time to leave a testimonial, thumbs up or review. I appreciate your feedback!

How do i replace the power switch on a DC04? I can't get to the switch, are there any special tricks to open the swich module?

yes there is a trick it you look at the switch cover at the edge nearest to the handle you will see a little groove down inside it is the clip that holds the cover on it iis part of the the switch cover and it is hard to remove without breaking it,you will need somthing small enough to go down the hole about one and a half inches the tool will need to have 90 degree bend in it you need to put the unit in the on position unplugged of corse and you will need to put the tool down the hole with the bend going over the switch cover when you have pushed the tool down the hole you need to lift the tool towards the unit handle as you do this it will push the clip out and as you do this you will need to wobble the switch cover it will come out but it may take some time its not easy so take your time gd luck

Beater brush will not rotate

If you have not had this unit in for any previous service, and you are tilting it back to engage the brush with the swich on carpet mode, then I would likely suspect the switch assembly in the upper handle. The new switch and harness can be replaced but you will also need the switch knob as well. Otherwise you can get the entire upper handle. This unit has a history of the lower cable wiring harness to go bad (not an easy fix).you can tell if you tilt the vac in carpet mode and wiggle the exposed cable at the bottom rear of the vac, if it starts and stops the it is bad.

Handle on kirby ultimate g won't stay upright

Just take the handle off, rermove the 2 screws on the front of the cover, remove the plastic piece on the back of the top, then remove the 2 screws and the top cover will come off. There are 2 screws holding the handle pivot on, remove those. Install the new pivot making sure that it alines with the transmissing on the left side, re-install the 2 screws and make sure they are tight. Then put the rest back together.

unplug it
Check along the calbe for any cuts & abrasions, & repair.

check the fuse in the plug, & replace.

check the switch clicks when pressed, pop the swich out by levering it up.

use a T15 to undo the screw, check the spade connections on the bottom of the switch have not come loose.

after this scrap it as the motor is probably burnt out
