My DC25 won't stand up...
« on: August 04, 2012, 01:02:46 PM »
Hello,
My DC25 won't stand up anymore - the price you pay for letting kids clean. The cleaner still works but now I can't clean those pesky stairs with the thing in upright mode. I've posted some pics to see if anyone can help

That's a known problem Nige.

Angus,
Saved my life (or at least my budget!). It didn't work quite like the clip so a bit of brute force was applied - but at least I could see what I was aiming for!
Thanks again,
Nige

 I did exactly as the video showed and snapped the left side of the red pedal. DC25 6 years old
