Hi there...


Do you have repair cafe dates for 2016 yet? You mentioned forums, is there one.. a kind of virtual repair cafe?


I'm hoping to find a good material for a dodgy connection in a handheld, battery powered milk frother.... I don't think the batteries make contact with the top of the case any more, so the whisk doesn't rotate.


(Reason why I think this is because for ages it didn't work when used normally, but worked if you squeezed the top down to make contact with the batteries.. I guess the top has just come too far up for that to work any more).


It just needs to be something I can pop in there, just smaller than a 20p piece, that is an electrical conductor. I thought of a blob of solder but a) I don't have a soldering iron and b) keen to see if that is the problem before making any irreversible changes.

Try a small piece of screwed up kitchen foil under each battery.
