Cannister vacuum won't turn off

My kenmore cannister vacuum will not turn off using the handwand "off" setting. The only way I can turn it off is to unplug it. Any suggestions?

    I just had the same problem with mine (Kenmore 116-25512506). It is not the switch itself (I checked that). I guess something is wrong with some of the 'eletronics' inside.

How do I open the dirt cannister on a dyson animal (purple) so I can empty the dirt out?

This is fairly easy. Click on the button at the top of the hand above the cannister. It's a purple button and the handle faces the front and says Dyson on it. This separate the cannister from the body.

Next, hold the now full cannister above a trash can and click on the red button which was below the purple button (but hidden when it was attached).

Probably a hose clog. Check the hose on the back of the cannister. Most likely clogged where it attaches to allow debris into the cannister. If cannister is not filling up, that's a sure sign. To remove from top of back of cannister, just turn the ring on the end of the hose to release. Take it outside and push a long thin object through it to force out the clogged hair or debris. The motor is designed to shut off the vacuum cleaner for 30 minutes when this happens to avoid burning up your motor.
