Interestingly my TOM which I have owned for over 2 yrs has never had a rubber grommet. The bracket doesn't even have a hole for a grommet but it has worked fine until last week.
Now it is too weak to lift up the trap door. I replaced the cool sleeve and cleaned everything but it is still too weak to lift up the door unless I lift the PF in the vertical position and have the coil test on and then it will work as per normal. It moves freely etc.
I will drill a hole in the bracket and put in a grommet but in the meantime does anyone have any ideas?
