Dyson company is aware of switch failures in their vacuums. It is a engineering flaw and even if your Dyson is no longer within the warranty period, call them and they may replace the switch for you for free. Do not use the vacuum!!! You can shock yourself or start an electrical fire.

Vacuum is turning on and off intermittently


Turn the vacuum ON.
Go to the plug while it is in the outlet, jiggle it and the wire going into it to see if there is a loose connection on that end.
Then go to where the wire enters the vacuum.
Jiggle that to see if that makes the vacuum stop.
If there are no problems found on either end of the wire, the next step it to open the machine and check the connections at the internal switch and the switch itself.
Let us know.

The vacuum was on when my son tripped the cord and one prong broke off in the outlet. We patched on another cord. It won't turn on tried other outlets. Can't find reset switch, is there one or did we...


Maybe you got the wires crossed between the two cords. Vacuums have polarized plugs and if wired imcorrectly can definitely cause the vacuum to not work. Try switching over.
In other words, consider current wires as A1/A2 and B1/B2. Disconnect, then connect A1 to B2 and A2 to B1.

vacuum===============A1 A2=======Plug
===============B1 B2=======Plug

Switch to
vacuum===============A1 B2=======Plug
===============B1 A2=======Plug

Try this and see what happens.

Electric short


Remove the electrical cord and check the conituity for a short. If one replace the cord. If no short is found the motor is fried although the switch would have to be on when it smokes so I think you have a bad cord

Nutone CV556 Vaccuum Cleaner -Continuously running


Start with this. Unplug the vac to shut off, then disconnect the low voltage wiring at the vac.Plug the vac back in. If the vac still runs you have an internal short on the relay or wiring inside the vac.
If the vac stops then the vac and final wiring is OK and the problem is in the wiring in the house.
Have you removed any inlets for painting or had any renos done or pictures hung. If so undo what you did last. If inlets were disturbed remove them and look for low voltage vac wires touching metal backing plates in the wall or touching the inlet mounting screws.
If you have done a reno or hung pictures you may have pierece the wire for the vac creating a low voltage short which will keep the vac running until removed. I have seen this happen with freshly installed 1/4 round molding along a baseboard

My vacuum died. It won't turn on. It is not the outlet. Is it a blown fuse? How do I replace the fuse? Where does it go? This vacuum is a little over 2 years old. My older Hoover WindTunnel STILL works and...


It's probably the power switch. My switch was dicey for a couple years, finally gave out. Easy to replace.

Remove the two screws just above the WARNING on the rear of the upper handle assembly, then slide the whole assembly to the rear of the vacuum.

Remove the dust bag cover. You will see two holes just above the upper corners of the dust bag. Remove the screws from these recessed screw holes.

Open the furniture cleaner cover and remove the cleaner attachment. Remove the single screw that was hidden behind the attachment. Then remove the attachment housing by pulling it towards the front of the vacuum.

Inside you will see the rear of the power switch. Pull off the power wires (don't worry, easy on/off male/female connectors, no soldering).

The switch is held in by tension bars at the upper and lower rear of the switch. Firmly press down on one of both of the upper/lower tension bars, and push the switch through the housing from the rear of the switch.

Replacement part number is 28161067, about $2.50. Shop will charge about $85 to repair it themselves.

Unplugged while unit was on by mistake and now it will not turn off with switch


it sound like you have pulled the wire to tight and it has shorted the switch inside the vacuum, so the wires are connecting, to cure this unplug from power supply and remove the cover to the switch and relocate it into its slot where it should originally should go, of course the housing to which the switch locates may now be damaged, but you should be able to stop the wires from touching and this will let you work the vacuum properly

secure the cable again where it comes out of the machine
