See my response to "posted by bigbadben on Oct 07, 2007".
The cover that I referred to in my answer is a small plastic plate that covers the 'live' electrical bayonets between the electrical cord rewind spool and the motor. I did not make this clear in my first response. Before you start disconnecting any wires take a digital photo and/or draw yourself a electrical diagram. Save yourself a lot of time come reassembly.

Just had this problem myself...........easy to get at it when you know how.
Panasonic UK wouldn't help me so I spent some time working it out..........here it is.
Remove the hose from its mounting storage at the rear (called hose clip) where the main body of the vacuum cleaner meets the base of the handle assembly. Remove the screw at the rear of the handle assembly which is behind where the hose 'was' situated and is located inside the deep recess.
Using the soft part of your clenched hand as a hammer, knock the base of the handle assembly at the front and it will slide backwards off the main body of the vacuum cleaner. Don't be scared, give it a thump and keep moving it backwards with a few more knocks.
Next remove the two screws at the front which hold the mains cable and on/off switch cover in place.
Finally looking from the rear once more, lift the plastic 'lug' at the top of the cover and which is part of the cover. This will now allow you to release the cover and pull it forward.
There you go! Told you it was easy!
Watch out for the funny little spring at the front behind the cover in the tiny plastic tube where it connects to the small rubber tubing as it could possibly try to escape.
You now have complete access in order to cut the intermittent part of the cable out and remove it from the 'choc' block.

SOURCE: when the power button is
This is a common problem for the dyson DC08 & DC07 vacuums. The switch itself is a little bit weak and after a time just fails. Basically the only proper solution is to have the switch replaced. The switch itself is fairly cheap and is only a 10 minute job to fit. Normally by the time the switch is failing I would recommend replacing the washable filter too. If you live in Australia you can get any related parts from Nelson Vacuums or VacuumSpot.
Hope this is helpful for you.
