DC18 HELP
« on: August 10, 2017, 11:00:50 PM »
Right, got my first DC18 yesterday, and it's all good apart from the usual undercarriage issue.

I took it apart and the only thing that seems to be broken is the pointy part of the stabiliser that's broken, so why do the undercarriages get sold as a whole unit? Will just a replacement stabiliser resolve the issue? The pointy pice of plastic has to go into the clear groove of this changeover valve that turns (kinda like a DC25 clear egg shaped wheel but internal).



Cheers  :thumbsup:
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.

One little peg usually breaks. They don't sell it on its own is why you must buy a full assembly.
