You can't fix this problem yourself - a repair dealer needs to open up the button and inspect the power switch - call the Dyson helpline, they will find the closest authorized dealer in your area and if your machine is still under warranty it'll probably fixed under warranty for you.

The power button is worn out and needs to be replaced. That vacuum is pretty simple. So even if you don't know how to take it apart it shouldn't cost much to have it repaired.

Most likely the ratchet mechanism on the switch is faulty.

Switches are available if you search on eBay 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.

Sounds like your switch has gone.

Its simple to replace, only 1 "specialist" tool is needed, but you can substitute for a small screwdriver.

If you visit http://www.sparesaver.com/help-and-support/dyson-section/dyson-technical-advice-450/ they have alot of info on repairing dyson cleaners AND they sell the parts, cheapest ive seen online.

Hope that helps

    The paper filter on the Shop Vac locking ring won't stay on, how do I fix this?


    It has to be pushed all the way on to where the plastic is solid. It's usually quite hard.

    The power button on my Dyson DC19T2 won't stay on


    The switch is broken. If you are handy, remove the old switch and match it up at a hardware store or a Vacuum repair shop. It shouldn't cost much to have it replaced by a proffessional either.

    you have got dust in the micro switch and it is not latching on, if you look at this and clean it, that will solve your problem, however blowing the motir has probably wrecked the motor bearings.

    The filter case that sits on top of the vacuum has broken. The prongs that hold it on the the vacuum have broken on one side and it will not stay on


    This is a propriatary part. You will need to get a new filter cover for the vac from an AERUS Electrolux dealer or repair shop. The vac can run in this condition and your filter will be fine.
