Cyclone assembly inner screws
« on: December 03, 2019, 09:38:53 PM »
Hello. Newbie on the forum. What is the purpose of the screws inside the cyclone assembly? Can you take the cyclone assembly apart?  Hopefully, a picture will help to explain. More importantly, how do I put those screw back since it a long way down inside? I think If I can find my 3 wire part grabber, I will be able to start the screws without dropping them. Picture of grabber below. Not so much if I don't have one. Any other advice would be helpful. Thanks.
Sincerely,
Desert_dweler5

If that's a DC07 then i don't think it seperates? even though there are screws  present.

I use long torx driver bits in my bosch driver, very long ones which are magnetic also which is the easy way around your problem
The only way to fail is not to try.

Yes, if you take out those screws, you'll still not be able to separate the cyclone. 

Odd but true.

Just had a thought - All is not a lost cause through your efforts at removing these screws. Sam (Beko1987) pinches these screws if they are in good visual condition, and uses them to replace unsightly rusty ones that are visible on other parts of the machine. He did not say so but I would think that he replaces them down inside the cyclone with any rusty screws to fill the vacant screw holes. They must serve some purpose - hey why leave them out and invite a potential unknown problem down the line.  ;)

If I pinch the inner cyclone screws to replace rusty motor housing ones (usually underneath where the machines been stored badly before bought for spares by me) I don't replace them! I've seen pictures before, cant remember where) of an 07 cyclone cut in half and it's fully glued/sonic welded up in there! The screws must be from assembly, and it's cheaper in labour to just not remove them.

Well screw me down to the floor with some rusty old Torx screws  :duh:

Hey Sam, sorry that I misunderstood your intentions and second guessed (wrongly) your after use of rusty screws.
Viewers pleased be advised that Sam does NOT use rusty screws on his refurbs.  That should set the matter to rights Sam  :thumbsup:

Cannot resist another comment on these inner screws that no longer serve a purpose and are just there full stop. Surely these same screws would be of no value to remove or repurpose anyway IF they have been dipped and exposed to a water bath cyclone clean out as they would more than likely be rusty. Steel plus water equals rusty steel. Just saying. ;)
