DC27 doesn't recline,
« on: January 16, 2017, 01:05:55 PM »
Old posts have mentioned a problem with the changeover valve when the machine is switched on but this one is jammed in an upright position. Any thoughts before I start taking it apart?

That black lever that you find on DC07/14/27/33s under the cleanerhead, behind the brush housing in the groove of the motor housing and is cured by levering it and spraying WD40 in there and onto the lever's end which has a roller wheel that should do the trick ;)
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.
