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.

SOURCE: power button not engaging...vacuum will not stay

The power button is worn out and needs to be replaced. That vacuum is pretty simple. So even if you don't know how to take it apart it shouldn't cost much to have it repaired.

Sounds like your switch has gone.

Its simple to replace, only 1 "specialist" tool is needed, but you can substitute for a small screwdriver.

If you visit http://www.sparesaver.com/help-and-support/dyson-section/dyson-technical-advice-450/ they have alot of info on repairing dyson cleaners AND they sell the parts, cheapest ive seen online.

Hope that helps

      Vacuum won't stay powered without holding the button down.


      This is over a year too late, but perhaps this will help other people in your situation. Here is how the switch assembly should go together:

      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.

      My dyson dc14 all floors won't stay on when I press the power button. I can hold it down and it will work, but that makes cleaning very slow.


      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 dc17 won't turn on and stay on unless you hold the red button on?


      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.
