Having problems with your Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?
On switch will not stay down or on
\015 The power button will not stay engaged or on.\015
My vacuum had this exact same problem, but was out of warranty because \015\012it was remanufactured. Thankfully, it's a very quick, five-minute fix.
- UNPLUG The Vacuum!
- Remove the cannister.
- Extend the handle and remove it. \015\012
- Remove the two torx (T-15) screws behind the power button, where the handle normally stows. \015\012
- There are four tabs holding the front plate containing the power button on; use your screwdriver to release them. \015\012
- Gently pull the front plate off. \015\012
- The switch on the right is the power button. Remove it,\015\012 try clicking it a few times; if it sticks, great, it should now stick when you press the power button. Replace it and \015\012reassemble, otherwise you'll need to get a new switch.
Simple solution...good news/bad news....bad news..sounds like defective switch...good news... Dyson quality product and carries a 5 year warrenty..Take it back to SEARS...their great also!!!

I just got a Shark Bagless Upright Pet Pro V1310PT-FS and the power switch will not stay on. If you hold it down, it will turn on and the vacuum will pick up but the switch doesn't seem to stay in the "On position". Any ideas how to quick fix this?
On/off switch we have two of these vacuums at work, and both of there on/off switches dont work too well. its hard to explain, but when u normally turn it on or off theres a little resistance in the switch and you hear a click, with both of ours the switch moves freely back and forth from on to off, no resisntace, no click, and the machine doesnt stay on, or off for that matter. the switch just moves back and forth.

I have a Hoover Elite Rewind model #uh71009. We moved recently and it was jostled around and the red power switch popped out. I put it back in but it's stuck; it stays either left or right, it doesnt move back and forth. It appears there may be another piece missing from the power switch...all I have is the red switch and a tiny cylindrical metal tube with a spring on one end. This piece fits into the hole on the red switch. Inside the vacuum itself where this goes, there is quite a large cavity

The last time the vacuum cleaner was used the outlet sparked causing it to smoke when turning on vacuum cleaner. I replaced the outlet and plugged it in and things seemed o.k. Today I turned on the vacuum, it stayed on for a mili second and went off. I checked the switch on the vacuum and it showed voltage coming and going, but would not turn on again. I checked all the wires in the area of the switch all seemed o.k. I thought maybe there might be a short in the cord. When I went to plug
