Electrolux Mondo Z1190EM - Stripdown and Refurb
« on: June 07, 2016, 12:18:40 AM »
Hello my Vacuum Cleaner Chums!

How are you? Allow me to introduce my Electrolux Mondo to you!

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

This came from Freecycle, another lunchtime collection, out Henley on Thames way I think, I got it a while ago now.

It came with 2 of the original tools, and a crevice tool which isn't from it, but is an electrolux tool

ila_rendered

The crevice tool doesn't fit in the holder sadly

ila_rendered

Unopened genuine box of bags and filters

ila_rendered

and a set of filters in an opened bag

ila_rendered

I remember these being sold new, and being sad that we were too poor to afford one!

This is the before video, the day I collected it (shot this then went back to work)

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

Performs like crap, which is good, as there's room for some improvement!

So, months later, when the sun started to peek out of the clouds I grabbed a few beers and got started!

ila_rendered

Small tools and tool holder first

ila_rendered

Upholstry tool is in good condition

The tool holder splits apart by removing some screws

ila_rendered

Like so

ila_rendered

Extension wands now, nothing too exciting about these, one has a very deep scratch in it sadly. In the box they went

ila_rendered

Onto the floor tool now, which is broken, the locking tabs for the elbow have worn away in places

ila_rendered

I took the top cover off

ila_rendered

unclipped the pedal

ila_rendered

and unclipped the brush

ila_rendered

The two little wheels pop out of the bottom chassis

The next thing that happened was bad

ila_rendered

Whilst trying to remove the broken part of the head the bottom chassis snapped, which whilst annoying, was not the end of the world, as I was cannibalising an identical head for the already broken part anyway

ila_rendered

So, tools apart, time for the main machine

ila_rendered

Half full bag removed and binned

ila_rendered

Pre motor filters removed

ila_rendered

as well as the post motor filter, which looked like it died years ago

ila_rendered

The rear control panel unscrews, which also releases the bag door

ila_rendered

The power adjuster buttons pop out of the lid

ila_rendered

The cover for the power socket sits underneath

It slides out nice and easily

ila_rendered

The rear with the top cover off

ila_rendered

The bag door is already released by this point

ila_rendered

Power switch pedal lifts out

ila_rendered

as does the cord rewind pedal

ila_rendered

Time to unplug stuff! Neutral wires first

ila_rendered

The air pressure tube runs fro mthe bottom of the bag compartment to the pressure switch, as well as another tube that just goes nowhere under the PCB

ila_rendered

The power switch sits here

ila_rendered

Another standard Dyson 2 pole switch, alot of cleaners use this style it seems

This screw holds both the bag full light LED and forms the clamp to hold the main LED strip in place

ila_rendered

Like so

ila_rendered

The larger of the 2 air pipes just sits there, not connected to anything

ila_rendered

The PCB itself

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

Time to split the main casing now, and 5 of the screws were easy, the 6th is hidden under the handle at the front

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

The air tubes can be pulled through the bag compartment now

ila_rendered

Bag compartment seal out

The bag holder clip pulls out of the bag compartment too

ila_rendered

Onto the business end now

ila_rendered

This seal that joins the bag compartment to the motor intake gubbing sits at the bottom of the chassis

ila_rendered

The cord rewind lifts out, and the wires unplug

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

The motor housing seal lifts off

ila_rendered

Motor top mount off

ila_rendered

Motor sound deadening off

ila_rendered

and out pops the motorila_rendered

The release valve sits under the cord rewind

ila_rendered

And splits down as so

ila_rendered

The front wheel pops off quite easily

ila_rendered

However the rear wheels do not, and through fear of snapping a lug off and scrapping the machine I left it well alone!

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

The fancase on the motor was a bit smeggy though, possibly not helped by me putting it down on damp grass...

ila_rendered

The fan was nice and clean though

ila_rendered

The motor is dated June 2000, which sounds about right. Blimey, 16 years old already! Giggidy... :underchair:

ila_rendered

And she is apart! It was all washed, dried and polished as usual, and then re-assembled!

Front wheel first

Apart

ila_rendered

and Together!

ila_rendered

Release valve apart

ila_rendered

and release valve together

ila_rendered

I rubbered up the motor

ila_rendered

and fitted it, the sound deadening and the motor housing seal

Cord rewind plugged in and dropped in

ila_rendered

Next is to fit the little air tubes to the back of the bag housing

ila_rendered

and then fit the bag housing to the lower chassis

ila_rendered

PCB is dropped on, and the LED's fitted and screwed down

Switch fitted

ila_rendered

Bag chamber seal fitted

ila_rendered

Before fitting the power switch pedal, I put a drop of grease on the mating faces, as the 'down' action pushes the switch back, and is a bit clunky in operation as you can see in the before video!

ila_rendered

Both pedals dropped in over their springs

ila_rendered

The bag door is placed over the chassis

ila_rendered

and the back panel placed over that, which secures the bag door in place

ila_rendered

Nice new post motor filter fitted

ila_rendered

and the cover clipped down

ila_rendered

Pre filter fitted

ila_rendered

and fitted a nice fresh bag

ila_rendered

Bag door closed

ila_rendered

I now have an open box of bags...

ila_rendered

and a completed main machine!

ila_rendered

Floor tool now, and this is a different chassis and elbow to the original one

ila_rendered

Brush clipped on

ila_rendered

as well as the pedal

ila_rendered

I then forgot to take a picture of the top cover going on, but I'm sure you'll get the idea!

Would you happen to know if this one was made in Sweden? Just today I picked up a Eureka (Electrolux) "Europa" which looks like it must have come out of the same factory. It has a similar look, switches, and looks like it might take the same bag. It was made in Sweden.
Of course, being american it also has a powerhead  ;D
