First of all, I cannot tell you how frustrating the Phil & Teds instruction manual is. Our's had one half inch square pictures that were supposed to be adequate to learn how to use this. As a general suggest there are fantastic videos posted by a third part (not Phil & Teds) that are worth watching.
After several frustrating hours I can tell you exactly how to fix this:
1. Put on the rear brake
2. Sit on the ground in front of the stroller but sit slightly on one side or the other
3. Lift up the stroller so that you can see the pin that you pull to release the front wheel
4. Pull the pin slowly out about a quarter of an inch
5. You should see that there are actually two metal pins (one large, one tiny)
6. Twist the knob you pulled so that the tiny pin does not line up with the tiny circle on the inside of the knob
7. Let go of the knob
If you did this correctly, you should be able to have the front wheel locked in the swivel position even if you tillt the stroller upwards.
I hope this helps. I also hope that at some point Phil & Teds hires someone to help them with their instruction manuals. They have several clever and humorous language in them, but when the document does not serve its actual purpose the humor just becomes frustrating. For the cost of the stroller, the company should be embarrassed that its users are resorting to these online forums to help each other, although I am happy to do it.

We`ve recently bought a 6 speed swing second hand and had exactly the same problem ie it only worked when the swing was empty. We found that if you give the swing a nudge before switching on the motor this sometimes works as the motor only has to keep the swing moving.
If this doesn`t work, strip the motor down and check the contacts. A poor contact will mean that you get less power from the motor. Be careful not to break the connectors on the motor as you take it off as they are fragile. If any contacts appear weak, then they should be carefully soldered to make a strong contact.
Then carefully reassemble the motor on the swing and give it a push to get it going before switching on the motor.
Hope this helps someone reading this.
Ian and Ellie.

if it wont lock that means that its broken replace the whole latch. its easy just take the door panel off then take the linkages off the latch take out the two or three screws holding the latch on and pull it out. than reverce those steps when installing the new latch.

I would lean more towards your ignition switch being bad. Although you could be right I have not seen that problem very often. More often than not its the ignition switch. Good luck.

Occasionally, customers have problems locking their Dyson vacuum in the upright position. This is a minor problem common with the Dyson DC07 and DC14 series and can easily be fixed by the customer. This page will show how to fix this problem. Although we show a Dyson DC14 Animal on this page, these instructions will work on any Dyson vacuum in the DC07 and DC14 series.
During shipping, moving parts on a Dyson vacuum can shift in position. One of these parts is a swinging arm in the base of the unit. This arm holds a removable elbow pipe in the vacuum's air passage. This arm can move out of the way so that you can clear out a blockage in the air passage. When this arm is out of position, the vacuum will not lock in the upright position. Fig. 1 Shows the base of a Dyson DC14 Animal locked upright. The red arrow points to the swinging arm. Fig. 2 shows the vacuum with the swing arm out of position. Since the swing arm is lower than it should be, it doesn't line up with the tab on the main body indicated by the red arrow.
Lean the handle of your Dyson all the way back and locate the black button on the right side of the vacuum indicated by the red arrow in Fig. 3.. Press the button down and hold it to unlock the swing arm.
While holding down the black button, pull the swinging arm (Shaded red in Fig. 4) all the way up. Fig. 5 shows the swinging arm in the correct position. Release the black button to lock the swing arm back in place.
The vacuum can now lock in the upright position as shown in Fig. 6. Note how the tab on the swinging arm overlaps the tab on the main body..
