Hoover Junior U1650
« on: April 17, 2014, 10:06:33 PM »
I had a box arrive today from absolutepurplelime of this parish!



No Dysons here  :underchair:







Very well packaged!





Made in March 2001, so VERY late for one of these! They stopped altogether in late 2001. Not hard to see why these didnt sell, to quote someone from facebook "Why buy a machine that looks like its from 1984 when you could have a DC04!"He has a point!

Note also that Candy have just called this a Junior, rather than a Turbopower Junior as they have been known since 1983...

Bit of tape on the handle



Looked worse than the scratch it was hiding!



Beautiful!



Looks barely used



Works very well too. The motor is much louder than its 400w grandad, I must compare the tool suction on them at some point!

Started stripping it down!







Cable off and out of the way





Bag fill tube out



Bag plate out next







I've never known a pieceof foam in this bit before



Height adjuster knob off



Bit of fluff building up under the bottom screw cover



Flipped over now



Base plate off



Middle wheels out



Hood off





Very modern looking motor



This piece of wireing goes from the motor to the spine. Again, never seen this before, the older machines dont have it!





Top chassis off



Release pedal falls off during this bit



Release mechanism. If you get a turbopower that leans or worse it's the bit this sits on thats snapped. Can sometimes be glued up.







Belt end seal



Foam cushion removed



Bumper off



These types of fixings cant be removed without risking breaking the wheel, and as you cant get the wheels anymore, I'm not risking that, so they can stay!



Motor next



Bellows and suction seal off



Candy must have sealed the fan chamber up, or someones been here before. I always seal it up, stops so much suction leakage! Up to 1995 (my second oldest) they were just pushed together





Fan off





Motor split



Bottom bearing out



Looks like these later bearings can be re-packed which is nice



Amtek!



Split the brushroll. The bearings cannot be split sadly unline some of the 1980's bearings, so cant do much here





All done and ready for washing. Got the Miele out to clean the rug off



Soon it can lead a quiet retirement with its friends!



More soon (if you want it that is!)

Ah you must have had a few of these apart in your early dark days!

Stupid phone decided to flash bomb the picture that tok me ages to set up  :censored:



First job was to grease the top bearing. Couldnt get the other one available sadly!













Built the rest of it up









Flipped over



Fitted a new genuine belt













New genuine H4 bag



And done!



Still needs a polish, but a quick test fire reveals it sounds smoother than it did!

And a test on our rug shows it works very well!
