Hoover 119 Available
« on: July 18, 2015, 03:52:48 PM »
We have a Hoover 119 that we came by.





It doesn't run. We haven't investigated why. It is available "as is".

Anyone who wants it, please contact us and give us a bid.

Thats actually quite tempting!

The red writing  i think means its early,  is the royal warrant to king george? Replacement bag and cord sadly,  but would be a fun project...

The handle splits into 3 to make postage easier,  theres a bolt to undo on each section.  If youve still got it about in a week or so when i get paid I may be in touch.  Will share it incase anyone else fancies a crack though.

Did Dave get that 1334 sorted?

Yes, he had it built back up with new bearings ten minutes after speaking to you.  :thumbsup:

Our other chap who was listening said when you was on the phone, "Is that the bloke we call the motor whisperer?"  :))

The old Hoover is now winging its way to Mr Beko!

I hope he will find time to make a topic (or extend this one) on him bringing it back to life.  :-*

Ooooh



Ooooh



The cable has seen better days, but luckily isn't original, so will be removed asap and a better cable fitted





This isnt burnt, but where the old tape has bled into the cable





The bag surprised me, didn't know it had a Hoover branding on. Must mean it's a genuine replacement





Normally this lettering is faded or battered, is great that it's so clean!



Will see if the serial number is dateable



Had an inkling of what the issue might be, so bottom cover off, quite clean tbh, but It's probably been cleaned out in the last 30 odd years to fit the cable



Switch cover off



The switch doesnt click, so I removed it, bridged the connections together and....


....

Runs like new! I lobbed the bag on and had a proper go. TBH all it needs is the bag emptying and cleaning and a new belt, runs fantastically!

More soon!!

Blimey, that was cheap then! I knew it would work when the motor whisperer breathed on it.  :))

Ooh nice! Did you blow a spell with a potion or did you use magic? ;D
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.
