Can you replace dyson on/off switch dc05 turbobrush

There are a number of places that list replacement switches. There are also a number of DC05 models, though the power switch is not likely to vary across them. Amazon, for instance, has a Dyson Switch for models including the DC05 and six other models (see here
Dyson Switch Dc03 Dc04 Dc05 Dc07 Dc08 Dc11 Dc14 On Off )

This video (ostensibly for a DC08, but the procedure should be pretty much identical) shows how to take the unit apart, get at and test the on/off switch, and replace it if need-be.

The beater bar on my Kenmore Progressive stopped turning. I tried to clean the hair out of it, then switched it back on. The bar still wasn't turning and then it started to smoke..... lots of smoke,...

The belt is broken.First while looking at the brushes,find the screws that hold that bottom plate on.Remove the screws and the plate comes off.This will allow you to lift the brush out of the vacuum.It is important to make note of how the brush fits in the vacuum.The new belt will fit on a groove on the brush.The other end fits on a small wheel about six inches back from the brush.

Thank you for using Fix Ya.

My Electrolux Guardian canister vacuum is not sucking it is blowing out. What can I do?

The vacuum won't blow out unless the hose is connected to the exhaust port on top of the canister.
Your problem is most likely due to the brushes running and kicking debris back out.
Loss of suction can be the result of several things, some of which will cause the vacuum to shut off.
Check afterfilter to ensure it's clean. It's located beneath the tool caddy/air diffuser on the back of the vacuum. To open the caddy, press in on tab at back and lift off. There should be a white filter on the exhaust port. If it's highly discolored or hasn't been changed in the last six months, it's time to do so.
Check the hose, wands, and power nozzle for clogs. The wands and PN can be checked visually by holding them up to light. To check the hose, hold up one end, drop a coin or marble in the end, lift the hose allowing the object to drop through.
If the bag full switch isn't working, the bag could be full. Replace it.
Make sure the both the vacuum motor and pn motor are working. If the vacuum motor is not, it could be due to the above problems, worn or broken switches/wiring, and even a bad motor.
You may need to take it to the Aerus Electrolux shop for diagnosis and repair.

The bag light stays on, the bag is new, the vac keeps going off, Am I doing something wrong?

First, turn dial on top of vacuum counter-clockwise so the smallest dot lines up with the arrow. See if it stays on. If not, detach hose and turn vacuum on. Place palm of hand over intake. If it turns off, it's possible that the tubes connecting to the CVA (control valve assembly) are clogged and simply need cleaned. This should be performed at an authorized Aerus Electrolux store only.
Second, check the afterfilter. This should be changed after every six bags. It's located beneath the tool caddy on the back of the machine. Press in the tab and lift tool caddy. If the filter is dirty, remove and replace. If you're out, try running the vacuum with no afterfilter.
I mentioned the CVA earlier, and a broken or worn out CVA will cause the vacuum to not start/run. This is an internal part and needs to be replaced by an authorized Aerus Electrolux service tech. Use the same check as above; detach hose, switch vacuum on. If it doesn't come on, it's most likely a bad CVA.

There are two things that can cause an upright vacuum to stop working

A: Air Flow or Suction-Make sure that the air flow is not impeded by a clog, full bag, or dirty filter.
B: Agitation- Make sure that you have a good belt, the roller is engaged, and that the height adjustment is set appropriately. Most vacuums need a belt change about every six months whether it is broken or not.

You may want to ask a more specific question with your make and model number included.
Hope I could help

Good Luck
