V8 Absolute power button problem

When I am holding down on the power button of my V8 absolute and vacuuming it will cut off then on.  It acts as though the power button has a short in it or not making contact with the area in the button that makes it run. 
On the Absolute you have to hold down the power button with your finger for it to run.

Hi @Kgtalbers,

Welcome to the Dyson Community, and thanks for letting us know about this.

Just to confirm, is Dyson V8 Absolute vacuum pulsing rapidly on and off when you hold the trigger down, or does the power seem to cut out intermittently?

We’ll look forward to hearing from you!

The power cuts out intermittently 

Can I get an answer to my question about the power going on and off intermittently

Hi @Kgtalbers,

To help pinpoint whether the cause of the intermittent power lies with the battery or the main body assembly, we'll need our Customer Care experts to take you through some further troubleshooting checks when you have your Dyson V8™ vacuum fully charged and easily to hand. If a replacement part or a repair is needed, they’ll be able to discuss your options with you.

Please visit Dyson.com and click the round purple button to launch the Dyson Digital Assistant. Then click the agent icon in the bottom left corner of the chat window to start a conversation with our Customer Care team.

We'll look forward to speaking with you!
