Hi There,
\012Most likely your switch has gone bad, and you'll need to replace the \012on/off switch on your Dyson DC07. If you have to hold down the switch in\012 order to keep the vacuum on, this is indicative\012 of needing a new switch. Unfortunately this is very common problem on \012the Dyson vacuums2_bing.gif . \012The switch that Dyson uses for their vacuums is one of the cheapest switches\012 on any vacuum on the market today. The good news though is that this is\012 not a extremely difficult repair to fix.

I took pictures of \012replacing the switch assembly on one of our customers repairs they \012brought in. It was having the same exact problem that yours is, it just \012wouldn't stay on. Here's how you can fix the switch on your Dyson:

-\012 T15 Torx Bit Screw Driver
- Genuine Dyson DC07 & DC14 Replacement On/Off Switch \012Part 901181
- Needle Nose Pliers
- Patience (haha)

The \012switch above is actually a link back to our site if you have yet to \012purchase the switch yet. We carry most every Dyson part.


Step 1. First thing you'll\012 want to do is to unwrap the cord from the machine, and remove the \012handle from the upright part, then slide the hose all the way down the \012wand, and remove the hose from the handle assembly completely and set it\012 aside. Also remove the dust bin assembly completely from the machine as\012 well.

Step\012 2. Once you've remove the handle from the machine I find it easier to \012work on if you lay the vacuum \012on it's back, with the switch button facing upwards. Now remove the T15 Torx\012 bit screw that is directly below the switch actuator. I have circled \012the location of this screw in the picture below:

Step\012 3: After you have taken off the screw, you're doing to need to remove \012the switch box housing from the vacuum that the screw was securing. \012Simply use your flat head screw driver, and pry the two small arms \012upwards. Be careful when prying, the plastic components on Dyson Vacuums\012are really cheap quality plastic, and I can't tell you how many times I \012have seen these plastic parts break when customers bring in repairs to \012us here at govacuum headquarters. Here's a picture of the location of where you should pry the \012switching off:

Here's\012 what the vacuum should look like after the switch housing has been \012removed:

Step\012 4. Use your needle nose pliers to remove the terminals from both of the\012 switch poles.


Step\012 5. Take out the new switch assembly. I find it the easiest to use my \012needle nose pliers to reattach the wires to the new switch, but it also \012can be done with just your hands. Both both wires to your switch. If the cords have\012 come loose while you have been working on the vacuum, you'll need to \012put the wires back into their proper places as well. This is how the \012switch and the wires should look like when you're done:

Step\012 6. Once the switch and cords are back to their normal places, simply \012put the switch housing cover back on, and screw in the one screw.

I\012 hope that this repair was helpful to you, if you have any questions or \012have any problems, please feel free to use the clarification request \012form here on Fixya.

If you ever need any for your \012Dyson, we do carry most parts and accessories on our site under our Dyson Parts Section .

If this was helpful, please be so kind and leave feedback for the repair. This is really, really appreciated and is the reason repair professionals like myself continue to post free repair help on Fixya rather then just answering the paid questions.

Thanks \012again,

Chris J.
