    Dyson DC08 Vacuum Cleaner. What needs to be removed to enable the switch to be replaced, and where are the screws?
    I removed the filters and found 2 screws by the top filter, but this does not enable access to the switch button that needs to be removed before the switch can be accessed.

how to replace broken switch button?

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
I would need more information on the brand name such as Hoover, Eureka, Kirby etc., to answer the question – we need more information as to what type of switch button.

Dyson vacumm power button wont stay on


Most likely the ratchet mechanism on the switch is faulty.

Switches are available if you search on eBay2_bing.gif for a few pounds, and if you've reasonable DIY skills and tools, it's fairly easy to do.

Have a look at http://www.dysonmedic.com/DC07%20Folder/DC07%20Motor%20change.html which has some great info.

Hi I have an electrolux vacumm cleaner, super J model. My problem is that the powerhead only works if the switch is in the off position. vacumm motor works in the on position, opposite of each other. Can...


Looks like there's an interchanged wires in your vacuum. Both the motor and the powerhead must go together. Check it up. Leave the
motor wiring connection intact. Just tinker and check the powerhead
