DC15 - Brush not switching off! Always on even upright
« on: June 20, 2014, 12:32:19 AM »
Hi guys, can you help me out here, my dc15 has a slight issue, I have removed the switch and switched on my hoover and the brush bar still works when its up right.. Brush bar is always on regardless what i do. Any ideas why this would be and how to make it stop?

I am thinking either the soft touch switch has shorted and is making a permanent live, or there is a fault on the PCB.

How practical are you? If you have a test meter and know how to strip the machine down some, I can give you some pointers. If you are not practical, this is one for the repair shop. The DC15 is not a terribly simple machine.

But can you clarify.......

I am leaning towards a fault on the PCB. >>here<<.
