Dyson dc25 power switch will not stay on

I called Dyson because I had a similar problem. When I pushed the red button down on my dc25, but it would not stay down. The vacuum would turn on when the button was pushed down, but of course when I let go of it the vacuum would shut off. The helpful telephone tech. Recognized the symptom right away and told me to push down on the button fully and let It flick up like a lighter. I about fell off my chair when that worked right away! Anyways for what it's worth, she said sometimes the mechanism in the buttons gets consnarlitated (my tern, not hers!) and this resets the spring.

I have to hold down the power switch for my dyson (DC 25 all floors) to work.

it sounds like the catch on the switch is stuck or broken.
it may be worth spraying it with an electrical switch cleaner to see if that helps.
if not, you will have to replace the switch as they are not repairable.
switches can usually be bought from electrical repair shops .
the switch and wires are basic enough, but unclipping the plastic around the switch can be tricky, and usually involve at least one hidden screw on a dyson, so you may want to consider getting an experienced repair engineer to do the job, to avoid damaging the plastics.
