The motorhead does not rotate or only works irregularly?

There are two little metal tabs sitting above the lever of the bin and are meant to make electrical contact to the wires running around the bin and down the wand to the motorhead to power the rotating brush. Those metal-tabs tend to get bend and/or their ends might have become dislocated out of their brackets.

Thanks for Your guide!!! It helped me to remove the Main Body from the Cyclone properly and get those metal-tabs back in place.
