The comment I listed below is not mine. I copied it from a Mr. Tim Swift who wrote it on 06/28/2015. Had I not have seen his comment, I would have said the exact same thing.

I have only one other thing to say......AWESOME!!

I replaced my power switch. Easy! $15 part!

Thanks from a 70 year old non-mechanical female with no torque wrench. I followed this tutorial a few months ago and found that my switch had simply come undone and I reinserted it but couldn't attach orange thing back cause switch kept slipping loose. I taped it up around switch so I wouldn't get electrocuted when turning on. Has worked fine til now, and I suppose my switch has finally failed, so I'm ordering new one. This Dyson was a refurbished one I got fairly cheap (for a Dyson) 12 years ago! SO, THANKS MUCH!!

Brilliant and saved me over £100 which is the cost of a Dyson engineer to attend plus switch. Name a charity.
