Dc50 question
« on: January 12, 2017, 04:41:57 PM »
Hello all.

I have a Dc50 in at present with a gremin in the machine.

When it is reclined to 45 degrees all is well but at any other angle the brush head stops.

I have had the yoke off to inspect the wires and no splits or chafing , the pcb looks fine with no blackening ,
the brush head itself seems fine well as much as a well used dc50 head looks like.

Has anyone else had a similar gremlin lurking in their machine and had any luck in getting rid of it .


Kind regards Adam.

 :thumbsup:

You need to meter it while wiggling it; a visual check is not enough.
