I would say the switch is faulty or has moved or the switch housing is damaged.

I had a DC24 in for repair with the exact issue, the sticky switch issue, yes? I just took the housing apart, took the red switch actuator and the grey one out, given it a clean and a wipe with wd40 in the insides and it was as good as new
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

How does the plastic on dysons hold up to WD-40?  I used it once on a type of plastic which apparently it didn't get along with and it ate right through it.  It also ate through part of my driveway.  I'm always very hesitant to use it on anything which isn't metal.

Thank you for the replies i have taken it apart and removed the red and grey actuators and as stated i gave them a clean but did not use wd40 as i found it not good on plastic so i used a different spray lubricant and put it back together and it all works great thank you parwaz 7862  ;)
