I hope this helps. I found on mine that the rear screw on the "neck" had become slighty loosecousing the release to not fully disingage. I had to remove the dome shaped cap in the middle of the speed control knob, pops off fairly easy, to gain access to the nut to tighten it. Hard part was trying to hold the screw head still while I used a small screw driver and small hammer to tap the nut tight, very limited space between the "neck" and motor body.

Theory: Its a screw at the joint that is lose.
Problem: If I held mine upside down it released but wouldn't when right side up.
Partial solution (in progress): It took me an hour to disassemble the monster as I lost the "NUT" inside the motor - the nut is inside the motor case and attaches the lock-lever and a ground wire to the motor case. It makes some sense since it is a part that can strip out if it has to be tightened too many times by a gorilla - a nut is "easy" (relatively) to replace. Prevents you from having to buy a new one at least. Wish they would engineer this better.
Current status: I finally fished it out but have to put it back together now to prove my theory. You cant get into the motor case easily - but I found out that you don't have to get into the motor case if the screw is still semi-attached. I only had to undo the the base to get to the hinge. Then I could tighten the screw. I am an AMATURE - so at your won risk. They make these things so you need to send them in. This most likely seems to be what I have to do now.

SOURCE: Motor head will not tilt back
Push down slightly on the head and then the button will go in further and the top will release. ((this answer after I just bought it home and was about to take it back to the store!!))
