This one’s random but I figured either Fixbear or Ectofix might know because you seem to work on anything and everything.
I had a co-worker bring me a very expensive miele vacuum and they are trying to get the telescopic wand fixed, it basically won’t stay where you click it in place and it has a button which allows you to change the height.
And yes, I know I can buy a new one but they want to see if I can fix it first.
I’m assuming it’s a simple mechanism but how to get it apart is what I don’t know and I’m hoping someone does, I would prefer to not wreck it, trying to take it apart.

Why those <div> things again? All I did was type a reply.

I’ll add that the reviews on Amazon aren’t very favorable in regards to that wand’s push-button mechanism.

I figured it out in the end, just had to “snap” the casing off and then I 3D printed the part I needed to fix it, so all is well now.
Thank you though.

I don’t see how they could possibly make a clear internal with a push-button lock. Incoming dirt would surely get caught on the spring and reduce the flow. You wouldn’t have a picture of it now, would you.

Yeah it’s tricky to do but the way the mechanism works I think it relies mainly on the outside parts which aren’t in the path of flow.
Unfortunately, I didn’t take a picture of it and it’s out of my hands now.
