Great instructions, thank you. Would you happen to know where I can aquire this part or the gear wheels as that's what I think is the problem. Thanks Stephen Rawlings

GREAT INSTRUCTIONS!!! I would have to say there is a design flaw where the wheel spring attaches. I have two of these vacuums and they both have had the same problem now 4 times the small plastic peice that holds the spring snaps off and you can not reattach the spring. I would assume that there is no quick fix and samsung would sell you the whole drive wheel. Is there a place where you can purchase parts ???
