Can 966084-03 motorhead run on V6 SV03?
« on: March 10, 2020, 08:32:54 PM »
I bought 966084-03 motorhead and tried to attach it to my V6 (SV03). It doesn't suit, so i replaced small part from connector that holds pins from my old head and connected - but motorhead doesn't start. My old motorhead 949852 - 20W power motor, and 966084 has 50W motor. Could it be the reason, or something else? Thanks

That will be the reason.

Compatibility of heads is a bit of a minefield.

So what's the difference between V6 Total Clean (which can use this motorhead) and simple V6?

The electrical fittings are different. We have a sticky topic on the subject.

Not just the electrical fitting are different - The SV03 can only power the 996083-01 (35w) /102882-01 version of the direct drive head but not the 50w (996083-03 /102882) version. You need the SV05 in order to do that. I believe the SV03 motor units belong to all the V6 Models up to the Total Clean - hence why the Total Clean only comes with the 35W direct drive motor brush head. BTW if you put the SV03 on max setting the 35W motorhead stops.
