I have two purple-and-grey mini-turbine heads; both work fine (after removing and cleaning the brush assemblies) but on one the pop-in/pop-out valve that disables the turbine when pushed in does not engage in the pushed-in position and immediately pops out again.  As I have never yet encountered a situation where I /want/ to disable the turbine this is not a real problem, but I would nonetheless like to know what normally holds the plunger in each of its two bi-stable positions, and whether the problem (minute thought it is) could be solved by an interested amateur ...

If memory serves correctly, the valve that pops out again when you press it is an earlier design. The earlier ones had a spring underneath the plunger - when pressed in and the machine is switched on, the suction holds the valve closed so the brushes don't spin.

It was later redesigned to the pop in/off valve which was more effective.

Ah, thank you Russ, I hadn't considered that possibility.  However, having tried it, I find that even with the machine powered up and the brush-head spinning, if I press the plunger in it does not latch.  Perhaps there is a leak in the rubber seal around the plunger assembly ...

Quite possibly...and why they changed the design!

I don't believe the brushes ever fully stopped spinning until the updated pop in/out version.

I have both! I can confirm that Russ is correct :icon_nod:
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.
