Hoover Turbopower 3 U2876 - Refurbishment & Restoration!
« on: December 12, 2018, 12:53:50 AM »
The Hoover Turbopower 3 came along in the mid 1990's, to sort of replace the Turbopower 2, but didnt really add much bar a very long hose, which admittedly is very good, and transforms the machine!



But apart from that, is just a Turbopower 2 really! And mine was a very filthy Turbopower 3 when I first got it!


And after a while, it's time rolled around to go under the magic fixing hammer



Drop the cable

ila_rendered

Remove the slightly battered hose

ila_rendered

And remove the ends

ila_rendered

The rubber latch that holds the hose to the bottom of the cleaner to stop it falling over when using the tools is branded Hoover, which is very surprising for this time period!

ila_rendered

Tools off

ila_rendered

And the back is bare now



The handle is held on with one screw

And can be removed from the cleaner

ila_rendered

The additional hose holder that holds the much longer than usual hose unscrews too

ila_rendered

And the handle top pops off

ila_rendered

The bag door is removed now

ila_rendered

It's quite filthy!

ila_rendered

The bag door seal pulls out

ila_rendered

Nice little Hoover logo stamped in the moulding

ila_rendered

And this date wheels shows 1992/3, which is about right as the whole cleaner itself is a Turbopower 2, and would have used the same mould, only the hose and extra holder are additional!)

ila_rendered

The filters weren't in too bad of a shape

Next was to de-wire the top, and that all sits under these two screws

ila_rendered

Tadah! VERY similar to a Purepower under here, which itself is a fairly facelifted Turbopower 2!

ila_rendered

The bag full light slides over the bottom of the red cover and clamps itself together, and the switch pops out

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

The switch cover pulls off

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

Someone has tried to clean the old girl up before (Probably it's old owner, who was a collector called Allan who sadly passed away early last year) as there's polish residue everywere!

ila_rendered

The mains cable is held in with this clamp

ila_rendered

And with the mains cable unscrewed and removed, we can go no further up here, and need to travel down a bit!

This lower trim piece pops out to reveal some VERY long screws

ila_rendered

With the two LONG and 2 shorter bottom screws removed, the motor cover lifts off

ila_rendered

On the motor cover is the post motor filter sat behind the removable grille

ila_rendered

And inside a foam diffuser

ila_rendered

It's all very filthy inside here!

ila_rendered

But enough of down there, we need to go back up and remove the two screws from inside the bag compartment, and lift the bag compartment itself out of the cleaner!

ila_rendered

The bag holder comes out with a single screw

ila_rendered

B is for Beko1987!

ila_rendered

Bit emptier now!

We can remove the clip that holds the spinal cord in now!

ila_rendered

And unplug it from the pressure valve for the bag full LED to get the cable out of the way a bit

ila_rendered

Behind the bag compartment hide the screws that hold the tool holder on

ila_rendered

The hose clip snaps out of the main holder

ila_rendered

Time to get the motor out! The fancase suction duct lifts out

ila_rendered

And the air pipe for the LED indicator and top rubber seal all pull nicely off

ila_rendered

Pressure valve is free now too, 133 mbar, whatever that is!

ila_rendered

We can move down even further now! The height adjustment knob needs to come off first though

ila_rendered

Then over she flips! The blockage inspection cover lifts off

This sticker was nearly off so I helped it along!

ila_rendered

The locking latch pops off the clear cover

ila_rendered

Baseplate next

ila_rendered

The Activator was in very good condition!

ila_rendered

Metalwork out

ila_rendered

And stripped apart!

ila_rendered

Centre wheels out

ila_rendered

These metal plates are what the activator end caps slot into and are screwed into the lower chassis

ila_rendered

And finally, with 2 more screws, the hood can be removed!

Which is a year older than the bag door!

ila_rendered

The release pedal pops out of the hood, no Purepower broken-ness here!

ila_rendered

The motor can now be lifted out!

ila_rendered

The motor in this one is utterly perfect in every way, the fan was even clean so alone it got left I'm afraid, no motor magic hands today!

The machine is suddenly alot lighter though!

ila_rendered

This tiny rubber bung sits in the motor locating channels

ila_rendered

This part sits in the bottom chassis and forms the other part of the release mechanism, it pulls out

ila_rendered

2 pivot brackets have the 2 remaining parts apart, and the wheels come off with circlips and axles in a nice easy way!

ila_rendered

Height adjustment slider

ila_rendered

This plate sits in the top half of the cleaner, and forms the motor holder AND the part that the recline latch latches onto to hold the machine upright

This small pipe makes the suction appear by the brushroll, the hose plugs into it normally!

ila_rendered

Cord grommit removed

ila_rendered

The hook the hose rubber band is hooked onto removed

ila_rendered

Then it was all washed, dried, polished and ready for re-assembly!

ila_rendered

The apprentice was out helping

ila_rendered

Yellow hook back on!

ila_rendered

Internal duct back in

ila_rendered

Motor end plate back in

ila_rendered

Rear wheels now! The axle pushes through the chassis and wheel. However, this circlip

ila_rendered

fits here

ila_rendered

And after dropping it 76 times it pops home! The recline latch pops in next

ila_rendered

Little rubber bung fitted

ila_rendered

Time to marry up the lower and upper chassis! On one side this metal bracket holds them together

ila_rendered

On the other side it's a boring plastic part!



Time to drop the motor in

ila_rendered

Clip the release pedal into the hood

ila_rendered

Which is a bit shiner now

ila_rendered

Which now spins buttery smooth!

ila_rendered

Fitted with a new belt

ila_rendered

Baseplate refitted

Shiny

ila_rendered

Handle re-assembled and fitted

ila_rendered

Hose assembled

ila_rendered

And with the tools fitted, and a bit of a wax and buff to get my grubby prints off it, we have this!







ila_rendered

ila_rendered



Which looks lovely! And it worked really well afterwards!


I even used it for a month! (Pre refurb actually, should have put this at the beginning of the thread!) It was really nice to use, tbh identical to the Turbopower 2 I used in 2017 but the longer hose made it alot nicer to use!


The lovely Mr HooverLux (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMYshVt0Nxxh3xSedKlHwJw has this now, I gave it to him earlier in the year, along with the Dirt Devil featured at the start of the above video! He was very thrilled!

I know! Must admit I'm not particularly fond of the turbopower 2 but they don't half work well when in decent fettle!
