I don't believe it!! (says Mr Meldrew, :P)
My Turbopower 2 has had a stress ling in the bottom part of the bag door for some time now and the last few weeks I have noticed it was getting longer and longer.
Today I was using it and I got a plastic bag stuck over the hose, I heard two big SNAP SNAP noises, usually when the hose gets covered on a Turbopower 2 the bag door kind of jaults to one side and goes SNAP, no because it has broken, just because the suction pulls the door to one side, but this time there were two!
I looked at the door while the machine was still running and it looked how it looked before with a huge stress line down the centre of the door, but when I covered the hose and the bag door sucked in there were two splits in the door that had gone all the way threw the plastic, meaning that suction leaks threw the door now, I will have to tape it up.

Looking for a new bag door now will be like trying to find rocking horse shit!!

Not at all, they are ten a penny if you look in the dumps for broken down Turbopowers, the hard bit will be getting a matching one for your machine.
