Having problems with your Dyson DC18 all floors Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?
The handle will not stay connected. You can push But when you pull back, it separates right above the off /on switch
There may be damage to where the wand connects to the back of the vacuum cleaner - you should see two grooves on the wand and two on the spine of the vac where the wand slides into - if you have any damage to either side, the wand won't click into place and stay attached to the machine. Call the Dyson helpline for troubleshooting and so that they can refer you to an authorized Dyson repair dealer if needed. If the damage is to the wand alone, you will be able to just purchase a new wand through them.

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
I have had a dyson vaccuum cleaner for three months and it does a great job, but the red on/off power switch won't stay on now. As soon as you press it down to turn on, it comes right back up and turns off. What can be done?

Our dustbuster (dont' have model number with me-sorry) won't turn off when I pull back on the switch handle. I disassembled the unit and realize that the tab on the switch handle that pulls back on the internal switch handle to turn it off is not strong enough for its simple task. Does B&D have a proper replacement part?
If you can provide a model number, I can check availability of the switch and can either order it for you, or supply the B&D part number and you can order it from most local vacuum shops in your area or from Black & Decker direct online: ... Black & Decker 15.6 Volt DustBuster Vacuum
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 was changing a light bulb with one of those metal extension rods that unscrew and screw back in the replacement bulbs. It evidently didn't seat correctly and pulled off the bulb and created a quick "poof" type electrical short. I have switched out that bad bulb with a new one and can't get either the fan or lights to work. There doesn't appear to be a reset switch. I also swirched out the wall switch to see if that would make a difference and it does not. Any thoughts or ideas would be appreci

I have a Eureka Upright vacuum (4800 Series). When I try to start it by turning the switch on, it wont. For few days, I was able to get around this problem by repeatedly turning the switch on and off until it turned on but that does not work any more. Could it be something related to the switch it self or the power cable. My wife mentioned that one of my kids might have pulled the power cable too hard (at the back of the vacuum). Any help to solve this problem will be very much appreciated. Tha

The brush wouldn't work when the selector switch was in carpet mode. Took the power head apart and removed the motor. Everything o.k. in the power head. Checked and found that the neutural wire had pulled out of the connector, the connector was never crimped at the factory. What a day! Took 2 hours and a large pizza to get it done. Neutral wire was in the hose just below the handle. Reconnected the wire and crimped it, put everything back together. It works!!!!

Floor Attachment I took off my floor attachment, but now the belt seems to be off and I can't seem to get it back on right. I can't use the attachment and I don't know why it's so hard to figure this out. They say, just turn it to belt off, but when i turn it it lift's it up and can't line up with the belt off label. Then, when I turn it the other way, it's off. So I've been trying to pull it off so when it lines up with belt off, it's off. But the I turn it the other way and it's still off a

Hi! I have a Pfaff Creative 1475. The presser foot seems "gummed up" or stuck. The back lever lifts it with great force, but then instead of staying up like the lever usually does - it then falls back down. The lifting foot stays stuck up and I have to push on it to get it back down. Help?

Dear Sir: I just purchased a Bissell Rug Shampooer at a garage sale. The only thing I find for a model is on the back and it says Model 1695 there. Nothing on front. It is Navy blue and has a grey tank on it with a smaller one inserted at bottom of the large tank. It has two switches on the back of it and the trigger switch at the handle. The cleaner works, BUT, it does not extract any water back into the tank that is to pick up the dirty water. Could you suggest what I may look at t
