Numatic Henry HVR200-12 - Stripdown and Refurb!
« on: April 19, 2018, 12:14:17 AM »
A while ago now, one of my youtube followers, who lives quite close to me offered me a scrap electrolux I needed for parts. So I wandered over one lunchtime, shook his hand, and took my loot.

Upon turning the car around to leave, I spied something familiar in the garden of an abandoned house. Ditching the car, I went in for a closer look, and came out with...

A Henry! Poor thing was not happy

ila_rendered

And full of water, as I found out when I picked it up and got a soaking wet foot...

ila_rendered

He dates at week 3 2015

ila_rendered

So let's have a look at what we have. Turns out, after a week of drying out that he is dead. A repair of the switch and a new plug has him working fine!

Marvellous! So, one night I got the stuff ready for washing that could be washed

ila_rendered

The cracked hose cuff came off

ila_rendered

And went in the recycling

ila_rendered

I scraped the worst of the crap off the motor sound deadening

ila_rendered

Took one last look at the filter

And set the washing machine going

ila_rendered

Onto the main job

ila_rendered

After the initial vac out the bin still looked horrible, but it was dry now at least

ila_rendered

The hose port/his nose pulls off

ila_rendered

As does the 3d face

ila_rendered

I did try and get the front wheels off, but they didnt want to know. So I spent 15 minutes cutting the thread out that had wrapped around the castors

ila_rendered

The one wheel cap popped off

ila_rendered

And both rear wheels unscrewed and split

ila_rendered

Motor now

The outer shell comes off with the 4 outer screws

ila_rendered

And the cord reel lifts out

ila_rendered

Under the cord reel are the 3 screws that hold the top trim on

ila_rendered

With that off, we can see the cable terminals. Remove the screws and lift the cable and thermal cutout off as one!

ila_rendered

The winder knob pulls out (mainly for a drop of grease rather than cleaning)

ila_rendered

Now for the wiring. A cover covers this, and pops off easily

ila_rendered

Unplug everything and remove the switches

ila_rendered

The 3 inner screws underneath the main machine remove the motor assembly from the bottom chassis

ila_rendered

The clips that hold the 2 parts of the cleaner together can be removed

ila_rendered

Lamb motor

ila_rendered

Removed lamb motor

ila_rendered

The inner motor surround lifts out

ila_rendered

Making the cord reel contact slip rings easier to spot and remove. The contact rings push out with a careful prod with a screwdriver

ila_rendered

The PCB can be lifted out now

ila_rendered

Amazingly it is not dead, these blow and kill many henries.

ila_rendered

The wheels that help move the cord reel lift out

ila_rendered

All stripped down, I grabbed a box that Daniel Shanks (Numaticrule29) sent me

ila_rendered

Which contained a Handle!

ila_rendered

Which was excellent, as I needed one of those!

I needed some small tools, so the shed was perused, and I came out with this mismatched bunch!

ila_rendered

Popped the dusting brush apart for washing

ila_rendered

I also found a wand set lying around

ila_rendered

With that done, everything was washed, dried and polished



The rear wheels went back on the bin, although without the one end cap because finding one in blue proved impossible, and it looked OK to the average punter with a matched set of not there at all!

ila_rendered

The bag holder and hose thread went on

ila_rendered

On with the face and the base is done!

ila_rendered

Up top, in goes the PCB first

ila_rendered

Then on go the contact slip rings and wires

The mounts go on the motor, then the motor sits in the housing

ila_rendered

The diffuser/sound muffler came up like new and no longer stunk like death, which was nice

ila_rendered

Pop that around the edge of the cover, then slip that over the motor. Then fit the fancase seal.

ila_rendered

Fit the clips to the base

ila_rendered

Then pop the base onto the upturned motor assembly, do up the screws and flip it around

ila_rendered

Refit the switches and wire as appropriate. If you are going a PCB delete, just wire the 2 white motor wires to one side of the mains switch, and the live and neutral from the cord reel to the other side of the mains switch.

ila_rendered

Fit the cover

ila_rendered

Pop the white wheels in with a crop of grease on the axles

ila_rendered

Up in the cord reel, refit the mains wire and run the cable through the cable run. The bends from before should just line up

Refit the top cover (it only goes on one way round), then drop the cable reel into the hood (also, at the point make sure the cable exit guide is fitted to the cable, and is the correct way round...)

ila_rendered

Drop the outer hood on

ila_rendered

Fit the handle

ila_rendered

Wind the cable up

ila_rendered

Marry the 2 halves together

ila_rendered

Small clean tools

ila_rendered

And the refurb is done! How did it come out?

Not too bad! And off this one picture and a small ad on facebook

ila_rendered

He sold for 60 in about 40 minutes. Not too shabby, 14/10, would steal from an abandoned house again!

Still quality machines, repaired one tues night, switch and brushes.

Never really changed the design principle have they, thus still successful.

No shame in raking about in gardens or skips for me - amazing what folk throw away.
If it was assembled it can be disassembled - if we can't repair it then it probably isn't worth repairing !
