HOOVER 'JUNIOR ST226f
« on: April 22, 2019, 01:47:19 PM »
I've recently knocked over my  stick Junior for the umpteenth time but this time damage had occurred. Very unstable in the upright position. I ve broken the upper fromt casing part where the handle peg locks into and trying to source a spare. Any advice would be welcome.

If you've got a windows pc- a quick way ive always done is open the image in ms-paint (or as its called- Paint) and then in there is a setting to resize the image.

What Ive done in the past was drop the bigger axis of the resolution down to 750 and then work out what the difference is and take that off the smaller axis. If that makes sense?

Or with an iPhone, email a "medium" image to yourself. And use that.

It’s a shame! Was such a handy wee cleaner when we tried it. All I can say is try hoover or the curry’s part website seems to stock some of the obscure parts.

Ouch, good luck finding that part, it was a slow seller when new!

Glue/tape it together permantly?
