How do i fix the on/off button on my dyson. - Dyson DC07 All Floors Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum


Answers :

Greetings,

Most likely your switch has gone bad, and you'll need to replace the on/off switch on your Dyson DC07. If you have to hold down the switch in order to keep the vacuum on, this is indicative of needing a new switch. Unfortunately this is very common problem on the Dyson vacuums. The switch that Dyson uses for their vacuums is one of the cheapest quality switches on any vacuum on the market today. The good news though is that this is not a extremely difficult repair to fix.

I took pictures of replacing the switch assembly on one of our customers repairs they brought in. It was having the same exact problem that yours is, it just wouldn't stay on. Here's how you can fix the switch on your Dyson:

- T15 Torx Bit Screw Driver
- Genuine Dyson DC07 & DC14 Replacement On/Off Switch Part 901181
- Needle Nose Plyers
- Patience (haha)

The switch above is actually a link back to our site if you have yet to purchase the switch yet. We carry most every Dyson part.

IMPORTANT: MAKE SURE YOUR VACUUM CLEANER IS UNPLUGGED BEFORE DOING ANYTHING ELSE!

Step 1. First thing you'll want to do is to unwrap the cord from the machine, and remove the handle from the upright part, then slide the hose all the way down the wand, and remove the hose from the handle assembly completely and set it aside. Also remove the dust bin assembly completely from the machine as well.

Step 2. Once you've remove the handle from the machine I find it easier to work on if you lay vacuum on it's back, with the switch button facing upwards. Now remove the T15 Torx bit screw that is directly below the switch actuator. I have circled the location of this screw in the picture below:

Step 3: After you have taken off the screw, you're doing to need to remove the switch box housing from the vacuum that the screw was securing. Simply use your flat head screw driver, and pry the two small arms upwards. Be careful when prying, the plastic components on Dyson vacuums are really cheap quality plastic, and I can't tell you how many times I have seen these plastic parts break when customers bring in repairs to us here at govacuum headquarters. Here's a picture of the location of where you should pry the switching off:

Here's what the vacuum should look like after the switch housing has been removed:

Step 4. Use your needle nose plyers to remove the terminals from both of the switch poles.

Step 5. Take out the new switch assembly. I find it the easiest to use my needle nose plyers to reattach the wires to the new switch, but it also can be done with just your hands. Connect both wires to your switch. If the cords have come loose while you have been working on the vacuum, you'll need to put the wires back into their proper places as well. This is how the switch and the wires should look like when you're done:

Step 6. Once the switch and cords are back to their normal places, simply put the switch housing cover back on, and screw in the one screw.
