Sparmax - sheared nozzle - advice?

5 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

As the title suggests, the nozzle in my Sparmax SP-20 just sheared when I was cleaning it, (was only finger tightening it?) Anyone know how best to get the nozzle threading out from the brush? Or should I just return to sender and have them replace it? I'd understand if the brush was old, I've not even had it a month. 


Thoughts?


Cheers!

Sparmax make a "nozzle repair tool" for this, probably better called a nozzle thread extractor - it's basically a fine steel pin with a pointed tip that has flattened edges much like a straight flute screw extractor. Insert the tool into the nozzle thread, push to allow the edges of the tool to grip & then unscrew, the flutes gripping the inner side of the nozzle thread.

Several ways.... The nozzle removal tool if you have one to hand.  But initially you can just try a cocktail stick.

Hey guys thanks for your replies. I heated it up under a tap and a cocktail stick did work. Got some replacements of eBay. Thanks for your help.

Glad it sorted it out.

I would give the brush a thorough clean before you put the new nozzle on.

There must be some reason the nozzle broke.

Could be some paint down there that caused it to stick
