customer says he has bought two beater bars for this machine - with same result of breaking in the bearing housing area.
looks to me as if there has been a bit of heat there too and i suspect the tolerence is too close - with the end cap rubbing on the bar.
Just requested a bit of info from guy i used to work with at a panasonic retailer as some machines were sold with a 5 year ticket.
anyone have a scrapper with an original beater bar ?
I also suspect these he has fitted are the pattern ones, like the crappy dyson ones which crack.
