Having problems with your Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

On button won't stay on

\015 I have to hold the button down in order to work the dyson. I was using the hose and then put it back and when I put the hose back in it won't stay on.\015

Answers :

Easy fix, unplug the machine sit in front of it. put your thumb on the on/off button and push down and slip your thumb off of it as fast as you can so it pops real loud. Do this ten times and then plug back in and see if it works. ( this came from talking with Dyson people) Hope it works for you. They said this will reset the machine. also acts as a warning that your filters most likely need cleaned.
I had this same issue under the same circumstance. I followed the repair guide for replacing the switch (I didn't replace the switch, just disassembled the switching mechanism) posted here:

I found the switch to be stuck in between on and off. I just manually pushed the switch and it became unstuck and started working again.
