Hi an welcome to Fixya. Most any vacuum you remove the mounting screw then take out the cover cord and switch all at the same time.
Usually you remove the bottom piece first as you are lifting it out as it will fall away if your not careful then cord and switch.

You can order the cord here. UK

Brushbar not turning


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC03 doesn't use a traditional user-replaceable belt. Instead it has a brush control clutch mechanism which allows you to turn off the brush bar when cleaning hard floors and delicate rugs.

If the brush bar doesn't seem to be rotating, it's worth double-checking you have the brush control set correctly. When the machine is reclined into the normal vacuuming position, the brush control should move to the Drive/On position:

f5e01f4a-b0fa-4e83-85e1-e63ee334ebef.jpg

Please note, as a safety feature the brush bar will never rotate when the vacuum is standing upright.

If you're confident the brush control is in the correct position, but the brush bar still won't rotate, please give our freephone UK Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298. We're available from 8am-8pm from Monday to Friday, and 8am-6pm on weekends. Calls are free from UK landlines.

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.

Good Luck!

How do i relace mains lead


If this is the mains AC cord this must be done according to the winder mechanism of the vacuum pump. Since the make model is not mentioned you need to open the unit and carefully remove the power cable, replace ONLY with the recommended type that will take up spooling without damage.

Will not start. replaced switch. What next?


1. Make sure that both safety switches are engaged (front and bag area).

2. The power cord can break internally where you won't see it. Look for damage or twists in the cord. With the vacuum turned on wiggle these areas between your hands and see if it tries to run. If so replace the cord. If not the he motor may need to be serviced

it easy to adjust the roll back of vacuums the problem is hard to dismantle the unit to remove all the things to see the adjustment roll,all vacuums is need to remove all screw to open the unit even to replace the small parts like switch,and sometimes we cannot adjust the roll back if the spring is worn out we need to replace the new one,for me much better call and service technician for your comfortable and practically to not damage the other plastic part of the unit.and you get a warranty service for that one.

Dyson dc03 faulty cable The cable from the mains plug to the on/off switch has split and needs to be replaced. How do I gain acess to the switch ? I am a competent engineer but I do not wish to damage the...


I've never worked on a DC3, but whilst the shape and position of the switches changes from model to model, most are secured the same way.

If you look closely at the switch cover (the bit you press for on/off), there is usually a small slot to one side. If you insert a thin, flat tool (a small screwdriver or flat file, etc) into the slot, you should "feel" it disengage a tab. If you now gently prise up the switch cover, it should come off easily.

Hope this is of some help.

Vacuum stopped working


Sometimes after years of use the power cord can break internally where you won't see it. Look for damage or twists in the cord. With the vacuum turned on wiggle these areas between your hands and see if it tries to run. If so replace the cord. If not the switch may be bad or the motor needs to be serviced. Good luck. Please rate me so I know if I helped.
