Question about Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
My dyson animal will not stay on. i have to hold the power switch on to vacuum. ive checked for clogs and there arent any.
Pull the wand out of the Vac. Need to use a small Torx bit to take out 2 screws hidden behind the wand storage. Once screws are out, there are 4 push-clips which need to be un-latched. Pry the power panel off and you will expose the two switches (one for power, one for the brushes). Push the power switch down and it should "release" and go back to clicking when pushed. Re-assemble. Took about 5 minutes to fix.

This solution worked for my DC18 also. I didn't even have to take the switch off completely. I was able to reach in and work the power switch up and down until it clicked and works perfectly again.

I had the same problem with my animal not staying on. I removed the two star screws from behind after removing the wand; pulled away the housing; manually pushed the on/off button and it just began working again. Must have just vibrated itself out of whack or some such thing.

Unplug the power. problem seems to be with the power switch being stuck down. below the power button there's a screw. take that out and you have to really pry the cover off, but there's a switch behind there that is stuck in the on position. flick it around a little and it will go back to normal. good luck!

This worked on my Dyson D25 Animal as well. pulling the switch then wiggling the button with my finger. When I was rattling it around, a very slight (2 degree) twist seemed yielded a very quiet click an the switch began working. It sounds like this is a very common problem. Is engineering listening? Please let us know.
Switches may have problems after about 2000 or more events. Also one aspect that may not be covered in automated (mechanical) testing is that not all events are a full power on. All the time fingers slip or there is a hesitation and there is only a half press.
