I would like to buy it if you have one. The alternative is a complete new head

Tbh the head motors are crap and dont last long, the pcb rarely fails but a knackered motor will cause the 1 ohm wirewound resistor to go open circuit.
I think there is only a a bridge rectifier - an electrolytic cap, 4 discharge resistors and the 1 ohm resitor on the pcb - oh and some versions have the trip switch too.
Do you suspect yours is faulty ? or maybe you have a knackered head motor ? - what's the actual problem you have ? i ask as many other issues can cause no head operation.

I have replaced the motor but the connection pin to the pcb has been poorly soldered and has detached. It looks difficult to resolder back in place without bridging the board.
The Pcb seems to be the most unengineered part of the cleaner and itís ability to perform is reliant upon a cheap board.
My difficulty is sourcing a replacement board without going to the expense of buying a complete head.
I have already bought a new replacement head motor which is working.

Hi
The one I have has the cut off switch. Does it matter?

I cannot remember now, possibly not - i think you can fit a switchless one and blank the hole
I will have a dig in the workshop tommorow to reveal the one i have
