Chances are you've connected the the new cord to wrong side of the switch thus bypassing it, also if its soldered joints,make sure that you've not linked both sides of switch with the solder.

My vacum Cleaner has ceased to operate


Check from the power cord line to the switch and further the continuity from the switch to the motor. There is no difficulty to check this out but for the trouble to open the unit. So check by logic if the cord is damaged then check into the switch and motor. If power comes to the motor check for the brush contacts, the commutator wearing or the capacitor,

When I hit the power switch it turns on, but it will not stay on.


If this were mine I would take the old switch off and put a toggle switch from Home Depot in it. Make sure it's rated for 110 volts and the wattage of your machine or at least 100 watts. It should cost no more than 2-3 dinero or about 1/200th the cost of a new one.

My vacum is not powering up


Reason number 1 (not sure why Kirby Co. still has not fixed it) - improperly installed outer bag. You have to push the bag all the way to the unit so it presses the safety switch that is between exhaust and the vacuum shell

Reason 2 - defective cord - try wiggling it. If you know how to do it - try removing cord and supplying power directly to the unit using another cord or wire (ONLY if you know how to work with electricity.If you get zapped - do not blame me)

Reason 3 - bad power switch (instructions on how to replace it HERE)

Reason 4 (very unlikely) - motor KAPUT

the actuator in the switch is defective, you can replace just the switch. There are several places to get just the switch, just google "dyson dc07 parts" for places on where to get the switch.
