Having problems with your Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

I have a Dyson Animal that the on/off switch is stuck in the on position. I can only turn it off by unplugging it. How can I fix it?


Answers :

A squirt of WD40 and a bit of joggling might help if it is just binding. I have had a look at mine and it is getting a bit sticky! However if the fault is mechical then that probably means changing it.

My vacuum just stopped working, so I don't know what the problem is. I used it in the kitchen to vacuum the hard wood floor. I turned it off, and a few minutes later, turned it back on to finish vaccuuming the kitchen floor. It just would not turn on. I had not unplugged it or did anything to it. I then tried to see if it would work in another plug, and no luck. I'm trying to figure out if it can be fixed or if I need to look for a new vacuum.
