Post by: beko1987 on June 12, 2015, 10:25:41 AM
Having a few issues with my current refurb. It has one of these heads

and I stripped it down as so (there's a thread coming you see...)

then washed and polished it all and put it back together...

and now the  :censored: thing wont change mode. It's like it's stuck on 'bristles out', and there's no movement in the mechanism to change it. Everything seems clipped in correctly, just jammed. Have I missed something obvious?

Springs? floor tools normally have them as the most important part of hard floor mode or something, or maybe a plastic latch isn't corresponded properly even if it looks like it's right, for example I think you might remember my DC40 has a cog in the yolk, it looked like it would just fit in but it had to have the end correspond to the first hole it goes into for the stabiliser to work right (aswell as thatblack clip I had trouble putting in lol)
Hope it helps
