DC65 - Diverter not fully flipping from handle to head

Thu Feb 04, 2021 11:46 am

Hello! Looking for some help as I am stumped now. Vacuum is a DC65.
Backstory: Strong electrical burning smell from vacuum. Had a sense it was likely because of the motor because we have never cleaned or replaced the filters. Did that first, no change. Bought a replacement motor. Replaced the motor myself, which was..much more complicated than expected. When I thought I was done, the rear-wheels were not coming down all the way when it should be upright. Took it apart again, adjusted the white gear piece, and seems normal now, and I thought it was all done. Till we went to use it, and found out that when engaging the head, there was no suction. The piece that flips from suction at the handle to at the head is not fully flipping around. I've had it apart again and it looks like everything is working as it should, it's just not fully flipping, so I must be missing something. Any advice, or things to look for?
