Title: Hoover Turbopower 2 U2106 - Stripdown and Refurb
Post by: beko1987 on May 02, 2016, 02:10:09 AM
I won this some time ago on ebay for just over 5. Came from a nice elderly couple, owned from new etc, just what all us collectors like to see

Whilst tidying the shed, I found my Permabag 2, Hoover's first generation bagless collection system, cobbled together when Dyson started to take over the market. I've had this for years but never used it, so thought I would refurb it along with the machine, mainly to get it out of the shed!

The only thing to come off the bag door is the retaining latch

The lid comes off the permabag

This blurry shot shows the inside is filthy, and going mouldy after god knows how many years in a garage and shed

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-gF_d-oD7TQE/Vxz2crx1VOI/AAAAAAAAyrM/tmM0Gfa5eMUdBbtAQxqP3CBA6J3DrZC3wCCo/s800/upload_-1)

The inner box slides out of the cage, showing the years of dirt that have seeped through, apparently the system was, for want of a better word, shit!

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-GNWywAbWi9I/Vxz2aIkKhmI/AAAAAAAAyqk/VT3HIgggvlsd_N9hEjirJBKVQXgHiIkgwCCo/s800/upload_-1)

But I'll keep it as a bit of nostalgia!

The pre motor filter was a bit clogged

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-lRpUjnXpF-U/Vxz2Uc-ynCI/AAAAAAAAyrM/aMnYiSVhRUMb2hZP4Nk5ncayUUf0dQntQCCo/s800/upload_-1)

I had already washed the hose, so the cable came off at the back

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-DEVDYsf9yXM/Vxz2QlF3zNI/AAAAAAAAyrM/len60D3cOh8E-H4Gs6asc1XMoaQXI-qnwCCo/s512/upload_-1)

as did the small tools

I did as I was told and left this label alone

and once the bag full light is removed the little red lens falls out

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-_eOXSLJ_WNc/Vxz17h2HHgI/AAAAAAAAyqo/ehjfgKCeAuo4ughrGVFvFB3veyQzcg6dgCCo/s800/upload_-1)

Everything was de-wired

Inside the motor housing sits a diffuser, which had disintegrated as they all sadly do

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-MBr5KxPMyzA/Vxz1d0sYGvI/AAAAAAAAypE/1XcA9xpUikYyF3AH7xr5JNCSy9fbwX6nACCo/s800/upload_-1)

With the motor cover out of the way, and the screws undone the bag chamber lifts out of the main chassis

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-PTwicOUbwYo/Vxz1bMFnJ6I/AAAAAAAAyqM/PBEQxUjBl1s2NhWRVA5Ox0ZiHns0auswgCCo/s800/upload_-1)

The main suction channel lifts out first, along with the little pipe that connects to the pressure switch that drives the bag full light

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-usEB-9QXWKk/Vxz1WRvchdI/AAAAAAAAyp0/fo_8Z14PXBo8S1N-Lq5jSkVvZJdl-WDRACCo/s640/upload_-1)

Back to the top, the main wiring is held in place with this horrible clip, which I did not bother to replace

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-GiU9cEabSFc/Vxz1Rn1kYdI/AAAAAAAAyp0/zI_30BX56EYaKUV1-tK3R9E9SlWqUYa6ACCo/s800/upload_-1)

The next step is to remove the height adjuster knob

I removed the motor at this point, although this could have been done before moving onto the hood

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-p5dIlJx8dAU/Vxz06xE_n6I/AAAAAAAAypI/55Bd_sKYf-MJIXe9r37rwjEFSCgBIjwWACCo/s800/upload_-1)

I did not remove the rear wheels, as replacing the circlip looks damn near impossible with my motley collection of tools, do I did not enter that world of pain

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-bvJkOek5wJY/Vxz0Rv1bUNI/AAAAAAAAyoY/uwZbeAltZVMfyupyrbaAoEm_pnjq-u4-QCCo/s800/upload_-1)

The middle wheels are held in with this hateful spring clip

Which is easily removed, but also easily broken

Whilst all this was going on, I soaked the permabag assembly in a bath full of hot water and dissolved washing powder

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-1rXGa805j7k/Vxzz_xd76KI/AAAAAAAAyng/HFxeB3PgkjQvJlagZ2-71syRVFwPeKItQCCo/s800/upload_-1)

and then rinsed it off and soaked it in a bath of hot water and bleach to sort out the mould

The rest of the machine was washed, dried and polished, and then re-assembled

Motor in

Ducting replaced. When I finished, I noticed there was no suction, I hadn't clipped the top duct into the fancase properly, so make sure it snaps in fully

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-4xcZ4EYG_gk/Vx0YO6r9ZkI/AAAAAAAAysg/f0usmBE5vGsZQDk3syNfGq9JufVcXhEfwCCo/s800/upload_-1)

I didn't take step by step re-assembly pictures, but  the rear tool holder was fitted, then the bag chamber, then motor cover, then lower trim piece

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-OzV-h4WlLPc/Vx0YRJAQbfI/AAAAAAAAysg/QOthiku80_QsNvUklQWwoMrYUZ7QFYSDQCCo/s800/upload_-1)

and a new belt that came with the machine

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-pMQbe0cN7a8/Vx0Yah1QxxI/AAAAAAAAysg/HqZ-y204gxYzvwfuwbo3IW0eJSNMEhPsQCCo/s800/upload_-1)

A week or so after I picked the machine up, the previous owner messaged me to say they had found the manual and guarantee, and would I like them? I said yes please, and went and picked them up, which is great as now I have a very complete TP2, the only way it could be better is if they had the box!

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-MSV3Qe0L5aQ/Vx0YsbUnKaI/AAAAAAAAyso/3xy6HwaRC6oJMNuW1Q_izjmf7LzWrcbRACCo/s800/upload_-1)

With the machine re-assembled, I had a vacuum with it


it seems to work very well as this is what it picked up after that video

This rug is vacuumed regularly with the Miele AccuNova, but the AccuNova isn't a very deep cleaning head

I then went up into the loft to get the red TP2 out for a bit of a photo shoot

and then put them up in the loft for another day

Happy to have this one, I feel the TP2 collection should grow a bit, they are very very good cleaners, better with a proper paper bag fitted though!

I quite enjoyed reading as usual ;D

This Hoover thread was interesting for me, I know what a Permabag is now and I thought it was a pointless plastic cage for the bag so it wouldn't rip or something! :|

I would like a TP2 now, along with a TP1/Junior I think that would be really cool. I like the red one you have, think it looks great :thumbsup: Not triedone so I;m not sure what the performance it's comparable to

How long dose it take for the bag to clog?

It seems fine still,  but ive been told not long,  then it's a pig to clean and needs another vacuum to do it.

I had a hoover discovery with the same system once,  and that clogged up really fast. If I ever need to use this in anger ill pop a proper bag in!
