Has anyone experienced this problem. When I took my 220 out the case I noticed that that the one side of the handle had come loose. It is due for the annual checkup so I will get it fixed then

Hi. It happens usually when bumped or dropped on its handle. A plastic tab inside the back cover that holds the handle in place is broken. You will need a new back cover. Oops.

Thanks Rick. I know it was not dropped. I am very careful with my machines. It almost looks like there was glue that dried out in there and on the other side too.

I'm not saying this is the case for your machine, however as RIck

mentioned, a bump can cause things like this to occur and depending upon

how the machine is transported it's easy for this to happen. If the

machine isn't in a snug case and is able to move around during a car

ride, pieces can become broken. I've seen knobs broken (on models such

as the artistas or 8 Series) from being transported in Tutto (and other

more interesting carrying devices such as ice chests) and the entire

wrap around light fixture broken on an artista after a tiny fall onto

its back while it was riding unsecured in a car.

My guess is that the plastic covers are lighter (we all complain(ed) about the weight of our older machines) and cheaper. Lighter machines are also cheaper to ship across the Atlantic, when you're shipping tens of thousands.
