@cypnk @cypnk This frustrates me to no end. Many products of mine have a single part that breaks, and the replacement cost for the part is between 80%-150% of a whole new product. It's either intentional to ensure new products get sold or, more likely, it's done because they only make complete, boxed units, so replacing parts is swimming upstream. But it produces *so much junk* when a vacuum cleaner is fine except for a broken head or a pool cleaner is fine except for a motor.
