Hoover Turbopower U2194 Refurb
« on: February 28, 2015, 08:21:29 PM »
I saw this on ebay for an incredibly cheap price, so, one thing lead to another and it was delivered to work last week. I took it round to mums at lunchtime and unpacked it



November 1984



Back at home, I had a closer look



it wasnt too great out the box. The belt kept slipping off on the lowest setting.

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NfafzkNZmHc" target="_blank">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NfafzkNZmHc</a>

Had an old air freshener in it



The lower cord hook was in tact!



Seems to have had a replacement earlier base plate (the cable is brown as well)



Was in a right old state though





I had a set of tools about that I got from Freecycle, so set it up for above floor cleaning



Onto the stripdown then!

Trunnion cover off





It's a Perivale machine!



Eased the hinge pins out of the bag door



and out of the trunnion cover



Dirty



The smell dissapeared many years ago on this one!



threw it in the bin!



Bag door catch now



Screw out





and the bag door was stripped!



Can get to the rest more easily now though



The bag fill tube has washers under the screws, none of my other machines have this!



Lots of red dust was over everything! Was either powder paint or brick dust







Cover plate for the wiring was out next





Handle came off



Switch out



handle wiring plug comes out next



Has been jiggling about a bit I fear though



Cord clamp out



Wiring removed from the choc block



top cord hook removed





Up top was done, time for the bottom half



base plate off



Crap belt thrown away, and the activator removed



End caps were full of rubbish





Bearing housings looked fine though



Bearing components looked in very good condition



I binned the bearings, and took the belt guard out



Time to lift the hood





Height adjuster knob removed





Lightbulb was filthy



and the whole motor was covered in a film of carbon dust



The wires get unplugged from the junction box



The spinal cord can be removed now



Hinge plates out





Release pedal out



Locking ring pulls off





The bottom cord hook is imamgulate, and I left it well alone, dont want to snap it re-fitting it when it doesnt have to come off anyway





Crap pic but the cable tie holding the bellows on was removed



Motor clamp removed



and the motor lifts out



anti vibration foam removed



On the early ones, the front wheels are held in with brackets





The underside was covered in a layer of filth



Height adjuster out



Wheels off, and the outer caps need to be removed first. The tabs pop out easily from behind





Wheels are held in with small circlips





Furniture guard lifts off the chassis



Onto the motor now



Rubber seals/mounts off



Bellows off



The fan case comes off now



The motor casing comes apart now



After the fan... which also had red stuff underneath it



Wiring reference shot





reference mark made on the housing so it goes back together the right way round



4 screws out and it seperates



the armature lifts out



Top compression spring and washers pop out





Coil was in good condition



carbon brushes have a bit of life left in them



fancase bearing was shot



but the fancase itself in good condition



One box of washing



(camera lens was covered in dust, sorry for the lack of focus!)

more washing on the sofa



tub of non washables



and some screws



I cleaned up the gunk from the coils with a baby wipe



as they were a bit minging before



Wiped the spinal cord clean

and once everything was washed, I grabbed the motor and activator parts out for re-assembly





Carbon brush holders back in



Grabbed the turbopower box out, and grabbed a new motor bearing



which didnt fit, and upon closer inspection q know who have sent me the incorrect ones on my last order, so I have 10 random bearings, and 10 less tp motor bearings than I thought  >:(

Sorted the box out to seperate them and carried them on



Found a new re-greasable one, topped the grease up inside it and slotted it on



sat the coil back onto the fancase



top ancilleries back in



Wires re-fitted, and a new cable tie fitted





Didnt change the top bearing, as it felt fine, and they are a pain to change (may be able to change them in future though, will elaborate on that when I get to it) so I left it for now!



2 fan washers fitted



fan was cleaner now



fitted



I popped into the shed, and found the remains of the sealent I bought to re-seal the sump on my girlfriends stupid bloody vauxhall...



un-plugged the nozzle



and ran a (thicker than normal as I cut the nozzle wide for the sump mating face) bead around the housing. It stunk alot more than it did outside...



Seems to be a nice seal. I left it infront of the radiator overnight to cure





Onto the activator now. I think the activator is a replacement part too, should be brown not blue, but it's in such excellent condition I decided not to care!



2 shiny new brushroll bearings fitted



and the activator is back together



Onto the main machine now



motor foam glued back into place



end mount onto the fancase



Grabbed the height adjuster after that though, as its easier to fit without the motor in weighing it all down





Wheels on top



I then couldnt find the spring for hell, so I fitted the brackets so they wouldnt get lost either and moved on



Wheels refitted



and the caps back on



cleaned this cap up to get rid of the paint



Onto the bumper next



A good ciffing to remove all the gunk and it slotted back onto the chassis



motor mount fitted into the chassis



bellows fitted



and the motor slots into place!



Activator back in with a new genuine belt



Pivot points were greased up to avoid any more wear of them



the top half was sotted in behind the bellows and into place, after putting the reclining holding part in...



Screwed down



Spinal cord fed through



fitted the cord whilst there was still some slack before channeling it away



The bulb cleaned up nicely



I fitted the hood, then the baseplate



Top cord hook fitted



cord fed through



and wired up



wiring cover fitted



I fitted the handle wiring slightly differently, to ensure a good non sparky connection



Then pushed the handle body over that. The little palstic peg was missing sadly, so I improvised with a small screw with a nice head



refitted the switch



Bag door now, and the latch is refitted



Hinges were fitted, and the trunnion cover screwed in place



Bag fill tube back in place



The empty bag that came with the machine was previously used i think, and looked smeggy, so I found a nice new bag!





and finally, the bag door could be fitted!



Last night now, and I waved SWMBO off to work, Eva was at granny and grandads, so I taped up the decals on the machine



and got the rotary out!



Not all the damage came out, but the gloss and clarity came right back into the plastic!







Once polished and buffed, I covered it in a layer of wax and left it to haze



I found the height wheels spring under the sofa so fitted that



All the wax was buffed off, and she was done!











It worked much better after that!

Nice.

I never realised they were dirty fan machines.

All the Turbopower 1s were.  Clean fan came in on the Turbopower 2 onwards

Ah that explains it then, not much different from the old starlight/junior deluxe then, just a more modern dress.
