SOURCE: riccar rc1100 won't turn off
I am an riccar dealer, and you either have a short in the wire leads from front of vacuum to circuit board or a bad circuit board which if so the boardd will have to be sent to manufacture to be rebuilt as there are no new circuit boards available. if not under warrenty which i doubt since riccar hasnt made these models for a while. would recomend replacement with either sunburst or moonlight model as they are a comparable replacement to the repair. or just simply just plug and unplug machine, if it doesnt bother you to do so. If more questions email me at firstname.lastname@example.org subject riccar, or go to www.riccar.com to locate nearest dealer

Your Dyson has A clutch unit this engages the brush roller when you pull the handle back to vacuum.
Check the clutch control knob which is at the bottom left side of machine looking from the front.
It should rotate to drive position when handle is pulled back.
If it doesnt turn the knob by hand to drive & try the machine.
If you still have no brush rotation after doing all this then UNPLUG machine from mains supply.
Now lay machine on its side & remove the sole plate, This is the cover over the brush roller.
Turn the 3 plastic screws to unlock postition & lift sole plate off.
Now try to yurn brush roller using your hand. It should turn freely if it is difficult to turn look for any foriegn object obstructing the roller.
If no obstruction found then remove the brush roller from the machine & check the bearings in the ends of the brush roller one or both may be siezed up if they are then new brush roller will solve the problem.
If bearings are good then either the clutch is faulty or the second belt which goes clutch to motor has snapped & will need replacing.
It is difficult to fully explain the clutch removing procedure,
But there are service manuals available for these repairs at this site

That is an indication that the belts are worn, stretched or broken. You simply need to replace the belt. Here is a link to the belt(s) you need and a manual you can view:

Well, you have to deal with it, you have to play with this electrical things if you want to fix this problems.
The good news is, the sources of the problems is the switch already broken.The first things before you do anything is, find this switch on the market first to changes the old ones.Then, remove the power cord from the outlet of course.
After have it, then you must open the old switch, and remove it from the unit by cutting the cables using cutter/ pliers or anything.But remember, you must remember the locations of each cable that been cut, you can use Camera Cellphone to make sure of it if you like.
Then put the cables back together with the new switch, after all done, clean all the mess and try operate it.
Hope it works!!!
