Replace control switch on Dyson 04 Model
\015 Switch is housed in the top of a tube and there is no visible means of fixing or removing the switch. There is a small keyhole at the rear of the switch housing. Is there a tool needed to remove the switch and if so how does it operate?\015
You have to remove the yellow on /off switch first. This is actualy a cover to the switch below. I removed mine with x1 of the centre prongs of a fork. Bend the centre prong to 90 degress to the fork handle, and put a tiny kink at the end of that prong. (you should end up with a funny lookink "Z" shape. Bend the remaining x3 prongs totally out of the way. Keeping the yellow switch cover up - use pliers here- push the singular prong down the flat egde of the cover. ie inboard. When you think you have the clip pushed in pull the cover up with the pliers and - hey presto access to the actual sw and wires is revealed.

I have a Hampton Bay Midili fan which I just installed about a month ago and it was working fine. A few days ago when I flipped the switch on the light flickered on and off consistently until I turned the switch off. The remote also stopped working to control the fan and light. Since this model only can be controlled by the remote I am worried I will have to replace the remote already after only 1 month!
In many of these remote controlled lamps you cant use the new spiral light bulbs .. you can only use standard incandescent lights .. if thats not the trouble then you may indeed have a bad controller (in the fan) .. there is probably at least a 90 d ... Vacuums

My older Dyson DC14 (the purple one) early model with a clutch on the beater bar belt needs a clutch replacement. The bar has been cleaned and there are no worn or damaged parts so I conclude that the clutch at the motor end of the belt needs to be replaced. I can find the part online but no instructions on how to disassemble the vacuum to get to and replace it. Dysons only advice is to give me the address and phone of the nearest service center. Can you help me?

I have a Dyson all-floor model (not the ball). I recently replaced my carpet to a Frieze. Since replacing the carpet, the Dyson is extremely hard to push. It almost forms a "seal" with the carpet. Seems to work fine on Berber carpet and laminate floor. My husband has checked to make sure the brushes are working, hoses are not clogged and belts are OK. I've had it for about a year. It is virutally impossible to push on the new carpet. Any ideas?

We recently bought a home with a 52" Hampton Bay Berlini Model 729 395 ceiling fan with a light that operates on a remote control. There is also a wall switch plate with two circular controls - one pushes and spins, the other turns with 4 clicks. We can not get the light or the fan to operate using either the switches or the remote. We have checked the circuit breaker. The manual that came with the unit - provided to us from the previous homeowner - really only describes how to install the uni

On-off switch My problem is finding a source for an on-off switch for an electrolux vacuum sweeper model 2100. I have replaced the broken toggle and now the sweeper turns on but only as long as the outside button is depressed. It appears that the on-off switch itself is broken as the switch does not ''hold'' when the toggle is activated. It seems to return to it's ''off'' setting as soon as the toggle is released. What ''holds'' the switch in its ''on'' position? Does it depend only on the on-

Our dustbuster (dont' have model number with me-sorry) won't turn off when I pull back on the switch handle. I disassembled the unit and realize that the tab on the switch handle that pulls back on the internal switch handle to turn it off is not strong enough for its simple task.
