Hi,
\015\012
\015\012Only solution for this is a replacement switch - the on-off ratchet mechanism has broken.
\015\012
\015\012If you're capable of some fairly complex DIY, have a look at the site www.dysonmedic.com, which depending on what exact model you have should show you how to change a switch. Googling should also get you lots of hints / tips.
\015\012
\015\012Replacement switches can be bought off eBay - just search for Dyson switch.
\015\012
\015\012If you don't feel up to doing it yourself, it's a call to Dyson or a vacuum repairman I'm afraid !

On-off switch My problem is finding a source for an on-off switch for an electrolux vacuum sweeper model 2100. I have replaced the broken toggle and now the sweeper turns on but only as long as the outside button is depressed. It appears that the on-off switch itself is broken as the switch does not ''hold'' when the toggle is activated. It seems to return to it's ''off'' setting as soon as the toggle is released. What ''holds'' the switch in its ''on'' position? Does it depend only on the on-


Hi Hugh. The 2100 has a rocker switch under neath the button. it is probably broken, or the button has a worn detent spring. If you would like, I could send you a switch kit with the rocker, button, and detent spring enclosed for around 20 dollars ... Vacuums
