The lock hinges on the cleaner head are most likely warped or broken. Have you got another head you can try on it?

It's not the one on the cleaner head, it's this one.

Probably 30 seconds in boiling water will make it pliable.

I can only assume the tabs havenít been bent back enough. Unless itís damaged or the casing itís in is damaged, and only you can tell that, not us!

I did check it and it doesn't look damaged to me.

I fitted it and it works but when I put the cleaner head back on it goes out of place.
