Please make sure the mounting screws that attach the upper handle to the lower handle are tight. This sets the proper spacing of the switch rod to the switch. If this does not help, you could remove the upper handle and cycle the switch with your finger. If it still does not cycle On/Off, the unit will need serviced.

Why is my #two motor not working and #ONE IS


Start with the obvious--a lot of vacuums have a reset button, try that first. It could be a bad switch, or a wire has come loose from the end of the switch that controls that motor. What brand is it? and is it the beater brush that is not working or the vacuum motor?

Sounds like the switch is bad. If it's not still under warranty I'd look up a replacement part.

Dyson DC04 not working


Have you trod on the cable at all, sometimes the cable breaks inside the sheathing, test by switching on and wiggling cable where it enters machine, if it starts then thats your problem, easy to fix, disassemble switch, cut off and discard 6 inches of cable then reattach the reamaining.

Hoover windtunnel U6476-910 switch doesn't work


What has worked for me on this vacuum is once the handle is off and the on-off switch is visible, work it back and forth manually.  Mine was very stiff and it did not get any better.   I went to radio shack and bought a spray can of Control/Contact Cleaner and Lubricant. It comes with a small piece of tubing.  I put the tube into the top edge of the switch and pushed the button FOR A FRACTION OF A SECOND and then did the bottom edge of the switch.   I worked the switch manually a couple of times.   I repeated the spraying one more time and the rocking.   I put it all back together and has been working fine for me.   This stuff is made for electrical contacts...  HOWEVER, use it very very sparingly!!!  ALSO, a new can has a bit of pressure so watch out that you don't blow some back at you.   JOE

Dyson animal, have to hold ON switch for it to work


Pull the wand out of the Vac. Need to use a small Torx bit to take out 2 screws hidden behind the wand storage. Once screws are out, there are 4 push-clips which need to be un-latched. Pry the power panel off and you will expose the two switches (one for power, one for the brushes). Push the power switch down and it should "release" and go back to clicking when pushed. Re-assemble. Took about 5 minutes to fix.

On-off switch on vacuum cleaner does not work


These machines had a defective switch and a bulletin was sent out to all service depots. If you contact any Hoover Warranty Depot, they will replace the switch, wiring harness and tool receiver under a no-charge warranty. It doesn't matter how old it is, but it must be listed in the serial number listing as one of the defective machines. It is possible that the switch just failed, as any switch can, and that your machine is not one of the affected models of the early switch, which means that they would charge for the repair work. You can go to www.hoover.com and check the serial number to see if your's is one of the defective ones. Other wise, you can buy a switch and install it yourself or have a repair shop do it.
As far as the toy part, your flat rubber belt will need to be replaced because, even though it looks fine, it will have sustained damage from the toy part jamming the brush roll. This belt should be change yearly anyway.
