Having problems with your Dyson DC08 Cylinder Bagless Canister Cyclonic Vacuum ?

When I turn the vacuum on, and let go of the button, the vacuum just immediately turns itself off again. I have checked the cylinder and the hose and there doesnt appear to be any blockages. Can you please help?


Answers :

Hi there,
\012The problem is the switch itself. It is just a really common ailment for the Dyson DC08. I have made a video of how to get into this machine to change the switch as the only solution is a new switch. Only try it if you have suitable skills or qualifications to do so!. Having said that it's a really easy repair.
\012Check out the video and see what you think, if it's helpful I would love to get a comment or a thumbs up, heck if you want to send me money!
\012If you need the parts to do the job check out Nelson Vacuums or VacuumSpot.

Hello can you help me please? I have a Kirby G4 vacuum cleaner, It did work ok until it started to give off burning smell and lots of sparks from the brushes. I have changed these brushes, the motor still rotates but it still gives off sparks and burning smell. Do i have to change the motor as well? Can you help please? Thankyou Martin

I have a power drive baggless vacuum cleaner...it runs well, but suddenly it seems to have lost most of the suction coming through the hose and floor area. When I remove the dirt container, the suction below it seems strong. I have had it to repair twice--they have tuned it up and replaced all filters and belt. It still does not pick up well when I vacuum or use the hose. Can you help ?
