Hoover Dust Manager Cyclonic TC5235 - Stripdown and Refurb!
« on: January 25, 2019, 12:33:59 AM »
Ages ago, Summer 2018 to be precise, I went to the car boot.

I found an awful vacuum cleaner

ila_rendered

About 20 minutes later, another equally awful vacuum cleaner joined it!



And it transpires I bought 2 generations of the same machine!

ila_rendered

The filter on one was utter scrap

ila_rendered

One of the hoses went off to live somewhere else




Leaving me with one!

ila_rendered



So, formalities over with, let's strip it down!



Hose off

ila_rendered

awful awful AWFUL small tool off

It's not even the just as shit one with a dusting brush built in, so a 2 in 1 tool!

ila_rendered

Hose end off now

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

Let's see if the wands come apart

ila_rendered

One end cap off

ila_rendered

2 end caps off

ila_rendered

The 2 halves then fall off

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

Which I think does the locking into place

Floortool next

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

MANY big clips later

ila_rendered

Only light damage occured

ila_rendered

The front hard floor brushes lift out, and the brush strip slides out

ila_rendered

The rear wheels, however broke when I tried to remove them, the very thin plastic bar snapped... Will come to that later... At least the air path was nice and clean though

Bag door open

ila_rendered

And removed very easily

ila_rendered

The thick sponge diffuser lifts off

The front hand grip is screwed in as well

Post filter seal out

ila_rendered

And we can take the motor cover off!

ila_rendered

There's a PCB

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

Which sits on this cover that goes over the cord reel

ila_rendered

Which itself just lifts out

ila_rendered

And can sit out of the way

ila_rendered

Little air tube for the crap bag full light. Sorry, bin full. Or more likely just clogged because you've done 3 rooms...

ila_rendered

Then the motor lifts out

ila_rendered

The fan chamber seal falls out

ila_rendered

And we can pull the motor out of the case, and disconnect the wires

ila_rendered

Pull the loom through the motor casing

ila_rendered

The spotless* 'sound deadening'

ila_rendered

Motor top mount

ila_rendered

Motor credentials

ila_rendered

Comm was good, and it ran really well anyway

ila_rendered

More filthy foam

ila_rendered

Some lovely reassuring gravel in the bottom of the motor housing there...

ila_rendered

Wheels pop off

ila_rendered

Front one levers off

ila_rendered

And comes apart

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

Should have put this at the top of this thread really!

ila_rendered

Then onto the shit turbo brush which is the ONLY thing that makes it a higher model than HooverLux's Green one!

ila_rendered

Open it up

ila_rendered

And unclip the front 2 edges from the other side

ila_rendered

Pop the baseplate and brushroll out

ila_rendered

Brushroll is fine

ila_rendered

Turbine and belt out

ila_rendered

Belt details

ila_rendered

We can strip the turbine now. End caps and nylon washer out

ila_rendered

Then pull them apart

ila_rendered

Then, on this one the tool port comes apart as well!

ila_rendered

Done! Everything was washed, dried and polished.

ila_rendered

And I fitted the front wheels first

ila_rendered

Back wheels on

ila_rendered

No more gravel!



The now flexible foam goes in one side

ila_rendered

And then the other

ila_rendered

The motor loom got passed back through and plugged in, and the motor fitted to the case, and the case fitted to the machine

ila_rendered

The PCB will be annoying whilst you refit the cord reel

ila_rendered

But soon you can fit its holder

ila_rendered

And fit the cover

ila_rendered

Clip the lens back in

ila_rendered

Post motor filter cover back on (the filter wasn't dry here...)

ila_rendered

Onto the bin now! The mark of the assembly still present in the foam despite a good scrub!



Everything came up well. The airflow didnt last long enough for the grit to sandblast the thing cloudy!

ila_rendered

Clipped it onto the base

ila_rendered

This is as good as the pre filter will get, and it's good enough!

ila_rendered

In it goes

ila_rendered

Lid

ila_rendered

Bits put back on the lid

ila_rendered

Lid put back on the bin, bin fitted to the vacuum

ila_rendered

This took AGES to polish!

ila_rendered

Handle back on

ila_rendered

Diffuser back on

ila_rendered

Lid fitted to the vacuum

ila_rendered

Vacuum done!



ila_rendered

Much cleaner now!

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

Pivot point/tool bit-bone connected to the lower chassis-bone

ila_rendered

Annoyingly, that stupid little plastic rod that broke earlier was integral to the floor tool assembly... So I got the qbond out, floor tool works perfectly well without its rear wheels

ila_rendered

Brushes refitted

ila_rendered

Brush assembly fitted to the lower chassis

ila_rendered

Snap the top cover on

ila_rendered

And no-one would ever know

ila_rendered

Locking ring fitted to the tool bit for the turbo tool now

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

Baseplate fitted

ila_rendered

Top cover fitted

ila_rendered

All the tools were done!

ila_rendered

Wand now! Red locking tab fitted

ila_rendered

The bit that makes the adjuster spring fits to the other side of that

ila_rendered

2 outer covers on, end rings on and job done! Clip the hose end to the hose

ila_rendered

And we are done!
