Question about Dyson Vacuums
Sounds like you would have to get the on/off switch replaced. You could try one thing prior to trying to replace the switch or taking it in for repair. After 5 years of use there may be some dirt that got into the switch. Unplug the unit and spray some Contact Cleaner (available at Radio Shack) or some WD 40 into the switch area. Use a bit of it so it can work its way into the switch. Then, here comes the good part, turn the switch on and off for a few minutes. The action will somewhat clean the contacts of the switch IF the cleaner was able to get into the switch. If you try this and it does not work, the next step I would take would be to disassemble the unit and get at the switch to see if wires have come of and if they have not, check the continuity of the switch and last ditch fix, replace the switch.
