Pro-Action SL204A - Stripdown and Refurb
« on: August 10, 2014, 01:21:14 AM »
OK, I sort of admit it, I'm doing this mainly for the thread content, this is probably far too much effort for a 20 TOPS vac when refurbished, but I just cant sell filthy stuff, and at least I can say I've stripped one!

I'm sure we have all seen one of these whilst bored in Asda, the Pro-Action!







Mmmmm Premium!

Lets pop the hood



And take the cloth bag out





This was packed solid when I got it, but it vacced off well. Needs a wash though!



Hood off



Hose entry port first





Then the release handle



Bag full indicator unscrews next



and all strips down nicely



The lid is stripped







Pre motor filter out



Motor housing off next, and this was fiddly as everything was screwed down to either side with short cables inbetween



The motor is clamped into place



And after removing the motor and cord rewind it looked quite empty



Wheels off



Post motor filter out



Carry handle trim and bag chamber seal out next



It's so tiny it fits into my parts box!



Moving onto the electronics



Probably thr tiniest 1200w motor I;ve ever held!



Washables off





Unplugged the cord rewind



Top motor cover next!



More unplugging



Pedals off



Switch out





The wiring







Lastly the hose (this was taped together at the machine end when bought, unravveling all the tape, and re-screwing it into the handle pivot fixed that up!)









And all apart, and all washed now! I'll pop it back together tomorrow, find some tools to go with it and give someone an ok little vac for 10-15 depending on how shiny I get it, or if I buy anything tomorow to distract me from it!

Popped this back together the other day

The wiring was very fiddly





Pedals back on



Cord rewind back in. I adjusted it up and it'll smash the back of the machine out now its so fast...

Onto the mottom housing, I put the bag chamber seal in



Then the motor and rewind into the housing



and closed it all off



Bag holder snapped in



Bag full indicator in



All done!



Put the washed filter in (should have bleached it but never mind)



I put the bag back together which washed really well, and gave it a good polish to shine it up a tad. Found a one piece plastic pole and brand new Qtex floor tool and put it up for sale on facebay







It's not too bad. Some metal poles and it would be useable. It's loud, the hose and cord are too short but it's got some airflow to it, would be great for mainly hard floors like we have (No, I wont get rid of the S5 for it...)
