Hi. I have a DC31 to refurbish. When I first got hold of it , it was not charging so I replaced the charger, which worked. However it was cutting out after a few seconds use. In my first attempt at taking it apart I removed the plastic plate at the bottom of the unit to expose the wires that connect the switch to the contacts. I didn't see anything to do there so put it back together, and now it works fine on normal power but still cuts out after a couple of seconds on high power. I suspect the TOC to be at fault. My questions are:
1. does anyone / everyone agree that it could be the TOC?
2. If it is the TOC, how do I get at the darned thing to replace or bypass it?
3. Does anyone have any pics of a dismantled DC31 to show me what I'm looking for?
Many thanks in advance,
