Hi,

A new switch costs about $8 and can be replaced easily however not something that you can do at home if not capable. Dyson might be your first port of call as this is a known issue with the dc17.

Switch part number is 910971-01

I have a rca universial remote control and I lost the manual and cant program it for my toshiba television I need the code and directions how to program it


Not knowing the code, you'll have to do it using the Automatic Code Search method.


1. Turn the TV ON manually.

2. Press and release the TV button on your remote. The illuminated ON-OFF button will turn on and stay on.

3. Press and hold both the TV and the ON-OFF buttons. The illuminated ON-OFF button will turn off, and then will come back on.

4. Release both buttons after the ON-OFF button turns back on. The button should remain on.

5. Press and release the PLAY button. You may have to do it several times. Be patient.
If the TV does not respond after five seconds, continue to press and release the PLAY button every five seconds until the TV turns off.

6. Just to check the code is right, after the TV turns off, press and release the REVERSE button then wait to see if the TV turns on again.

If that works, you've got it!

Press and release the STOP button to save the new code.

I just bought my dyson dc25 and plugged it in and the brush doesn't go. there is suction on the wand. what am i missing. I checked the connections to everything and they all clicked. Is there an on/off...


Have you tried the button on the handle that looks like a brush beside the power button?

Mine did it as well, press the button and it will start spinning. You might have to press it a few times to get it to stay spinning

The on button won't stay pressed


Faulty switch, undu the screw with a torx driver where the handle sits and unclip the switch cover out at both sides, be careful not to break it,
where the switch is situated they may be a spring, also test the button, if no good replace
