DC25 switch button
« on: February 24, 2019, 06:50:56 PM »
Please see the attached photo . There is a metal piece attached that I have not seen in other photos or posts. It makes it difficult to reassemble. Does anyone have any suggestions?

It presses the brushbar reset switch so make sure it lines up with that if its a bit bent

I cannot seem to find the Actuator Arm anywhere to purchase.

Also, it is not clear to me how it fits together. Does anyone have a diagram for how the actuator arm goes in?

I am new to this, and whilst I have replaced the switches, I cant seem to get the actuator arm to go in, so have left it out. I suspect this means that if my Dyson sucks up a sock, I will not be able to reset it withouttaking it apart. >:(

Thanks Ryevac.

Alas, the Actuator Arm does not seem to be in your pictures. It is the metal actuator arm that I cannot find a home for (see the original post by Turk).

I have now found a diagram that features it on another site, but it is still not clear to me how it fits together.... Was hoping for a photo of it in situ.

It also does not seem available to buy anymore...

I didn't think the 25 had that metal piece you describe ?

Stu Mvacs / David should be able to confirm whether it has or not

It certainly does have it, although perhaps not all DC25s....?

I have found a schematic on a US site that even identifies it:
