DC41/43 will not stay standing.
« on: January 10, 2019, 12:55:08 AM »
DC41/43 not staying upright. There is nothing stuck in any of the tubing as the vacuum sucks as good as new. Is there a latch or something that locks it in the upright position that could be broken? If so, how do I access it to fix it? Thanks in advance!!

You’ll need to take the vacuum’s ball apart for this- but the yolk assembly has a metal pin which corresponds with the upright lock mechanism and it slides downwards into the lock position
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.

So, I fixed my DC41/43. It now locks in the upright position. The part number was DY-920705-01 for the Upright Lock. Had to remove the yoke assembly to replace the latch. Took about 30 minutes from start to finish.
