Any ideas?

HELLO! Is there anyone there?
Expert:  JamesI replied 18 days ago.

This is not an immediate service I am afraid, it can take time for experts to respond, as they will need time to go away and look into the fault, but we do try and respond as soon as possible.

Ok what happens when you lift the handle does that move?

Customer: replied 18 days ago.
The handle moves. It lifts as it should but it has no resistance. It seems that there should be something that is lifted by lifting the handle.
Expert:  JamesI replied 18 days ago.

Right so the mechanism doesnt appear to being activated to allow you to pull the tray out and up.

Expert:  JamesI replied 18 days ago.

There are many components which make up the mechanism.

You can see these components here.

In essence you need to strip it down which is best achieved by removing the top basket so you can get a good view inside and see if something has come out of alignment or snapped, as it could be the handle the fixing kit or the brackets at fault.

Customer: replied 18 days ago.
I can't remove the top basket as the lower basket is in the way.
Customer: replied 18 days ago.
I think the issue lies with part 150B as I think that's the part affected by the lifting of the handle
Expert:  JamesI replied 18 days ago.

The item 150B can be sourced here directly from AEG.
