Poor bin seals?
« on: February 24, 2021, 07:40:06 PM »
Hello again,
Hope you're all holding well.

Has anyone ever had a problem with bins not sealing properly? I've had few machines with new bins and seals on the bottom flap didn't seem to seal well all around. It strangely seals very well on one side but poorly on the other. It's a bit weird cause usually it is in the same place on various bins.
I've had this problem with DC40, DC40 ERP, DC55 and DC75.

Is it a normal thing and I'm just complaining again?  :underchair: Or maybe I'm doing something wrong? I haven't had this problem on Light Ball or Ball Animal 2. Could it be a thing that they improved then?

I would recommend trying out the light ball bin because of the older versions are leaking and the new ones aren't then they must be better now
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.
