Hi!

Way before Sebo decided to muscle in on the domestic market by painting their commercial cleaners prettier colours, before bagless, before the rise of the cheap rubbish, in the 1980's, if you wanted quality, and I mean proper quality, you went German, with either a Miele or an AEG. Yes, AEG, before they had their head chopped off by Electrolux were the mega luxury, bulletproof vacs one might have had in the 1980's for their 5 bed detached house with 3 cars on the drive...

And I picked one up for a fiver from the car boot sale!

ila_rendered

Yes this dates how behind I am with my threads, that's my blue Laguna, the car I had 4 cars ago...

and it was alright really



ila_rendered

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

With the only repair being some tape to the handle end

ila_rendered

With good intentions I took the hose apart

ila_rendered

and washed it. Then I did nothing with the cleaner... Until nearly 2 YEARS LATER! when at the SAME carboot, I found another one for a fiver!



It had all of its small tools

ila_rendered

and seemed just overall in better condition

ila_rendered

There wasn't anything else at the car boot I don't recall but that's fine, I was happy enough so scampered home as fast as I illegally could and got to work!

ila_rendered

It has a different style/era of floor tool

ila_rendered

And rusty wands



So out comes the first one from the shed

The hose end gets re-split up

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

And it's onto the wand

ila_rendered

With the button removed, you can pop up the bent in metal tab and it all slides easily apart

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

Floortool next!

ila_rendered

And we have an interesting repair to hold the wheels on

ila_rendered

So we'll have all that apart

ila_rendered

Baseplate next which thankfully was very clean

And comes off with some screws

ila_rendered

Sadly it wasn't filled with fluff. I like them when they are like that!

ila_rendered

Unlike other floor tools, the entire top unclips from the base

ila_rendered

The swivel neck comes nicely apart

ila_rendered

The retracting brushes and the metal levers that let them do this come off

ila_rendered

And pull apart

ila_rendered

The pedal bar can be removed now

ila_rendered

And it seems thats the floor tool done, as the next picture is of the vacuum cleaner!

ila_rendered

Time to pop the hood

ila_rendered

and remove the bag which was smelling brilliant after 2 years in the shed whilst full of who knows how many years of dirt....

The bag holders are vertical posts, which spring outwards to stop the bag door closing if a bag is not fitted. We do not refit these...

ila_rendered

2 nice sturdy tabs release the bag door

ila_rendered

The fixed hose inlet does come out with a good tug, and the running pieces that make it swivel come out

ila_rendered

The spring for the bag door latch sits like so

ila_rendered

And with a bit of a fiddle the latch and front bumper come off the hood

ila_rendered

We can remove the bag holders

ila_rendered

and head straight on to the motor housing, which is just a few screws

ila_rendered

The cord is still going through the machine so the cord reel comes out first

ila_rendered

and the motor wires disconnected

The plug needs to come off next

ila_rendered

The cord reel confirmed what I wasnt going to do anyway, flipping HATE opening cord reels, never do unless I have to...

ila_rendered

Massive EverReady plug removed

ila_rendered

And we can pull the flex through and call the cord reel fully removed

ila_rendered

The actual cord reel brake is this piece of plastic with accompanying spring. I had to cabletie the cord reel together so it didn't unwind...

ila_rendered

There is ALOT to come off this top panel, starting with the pedals

ila_rendered

Then the bar for the cord reel (this just presses that plastic bar up allowing the cable to reel in)

ila_rendered

The pivot points of the bag door come out too

ila_rendered

This is the bar for the speed control

It sits in this groove here, with the spring providing the bar tension

ila_rendered

The entire top trim comes off now, which also lets us remove the cable port cover

ila_rendered

This must be fab in euro-land where the small plugs fully fit inside the recess, but alas in the UK they do not. It had probably never been moved before I moved it...

ila_rendered

The bag full light lens pops out

ila_rendered

As does this small piece of metal which stops the cord rubbing through the plastic housing as it's pulled out



This is the latch for the bag door. I can't actually remember if I did take it off but I wouldn't recommend you do, its a bit pointless...

ila_rendered

Tools out!

ila_rendered

And split down a bit

ila_rendered

The tool compartment pops off it's runners

Time for wires now, and take photo's and get pulling

ila_rendered

2 black & black/white cables go here

ila_rendered

The bag full light would never shine brightly looking like that!

ila_rendered

The glorious PTO socket which has never had anything plugged into it sadly

ila_rendered

The wires go this way round

ila_rendered

Hidden under the tool compartment, there is a removable cover! Under that cover a totally perished bit of diffuser foam fell out

ila_rendered

I found this as I unscrewed the motor housing itself

ila_rendered

I bet this thing ran very hot when it got going

ila_rendered

Under the sound deadening was no better...

Onto the PCB itself now. This white part is what translates that wavy bar's movement to something the potentiometer can read

ila_rendered

The board was quite dirty considering the machine didn't look like it has been very wet

ila_rendered

There is a heat sensor we need to unscrew too

ila_rendered

Then we can access the big beefy motor!

ila_rendered

Which is held down by these massive clamps and rubber dampers. If this was a 2015 vac, these would be shitty brittle plastic and a small blob of hot glue on the end...

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

There was alot of MDF dust under here

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

The bag indicator pressure tube can come out

ila_rendered

The furniture guard can come off now

ila_rendered

And the pre motor filter grille. Not the front grille, the grille that separates the motor housing from the bag housing

ila_rendered

I really wish I did not remove these as some broke, but the wheels and tyres came off

ila_rendered

The parking slow detaches from the back of the machine with this now visible screw

ila_rendered

The front wheel pops off

ila_rendered

And splits into a fair few pieces

Onto the motor now, and the fancase seal comes off

ila_rendered

ID marks

ila_rendered

First off were the Carbon brushes

ila_rendered

Then the bolts that hold the motor together, and the top bearing holder can be removed

The coil and mass of connected wires can be moved to one side for later cleaning

ila_rendered

The fancase came off next, and all this fell out from just tapping the cover off

ila_rendered

It's a dual fancase design these motors so the first fan and its spacers come off

ila_rendered

Then a second fan chamber gets tapped off and the 2nd fan removed

ila_rendered

Pile of bits ready for washing!

Which got washed. Then I sat down and did it ALL OVER AGAIN on the other cleaner. It must have been quite boring/not bad as I only took a picture of how grim the lint pickers looked...

ila_rendered

The fans got a wash too and they needed it...

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

A few days later, with everything dry I can mask off the decals and get polishing!

ila_rendered

Can't get much of a better 50/50 shot than with 2 full identical parts!

ila_rendered

The floor tools only differ by one digit too, which is presumably the colour





It's really tricky to photograph in low light

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

Cleaned up the wands too with autosol and wire wool

ila_rendered

By this time, all the parts were dry so down they all came...

ila_rendered

and 2x everything got polished and cleaned up

ila_rendered

The flipping rug wasn't big enough!

Onto re-assembly then! The comm on both armatures cleaned up a treat! (drop of CIF on a microfibre and rubbed did that!)

I greased the bearings as best I could too (they weren't too bad really) and re-fitted the armature to the start of the fancase

ila_rendered

First layer on

ila_rendered

Then the second

ila_rendered

The coil can be dropped on now

ila_rendered

Then generally buttoned up

ila_rendered

Sorry, they can be buttoned up...

ila_rendered

Front wheel now! The little axle has a sleeve that goes on either end that the wheel actually runs against. Really over engineered!

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

The parking slot can go back in

The two back wheels of the 4 that did not break went on

ila_rendered

I then fired up the hot glue gun

ila_rendered

and glued some new sealing foam under the filter cage

ila_rendered

The filter cage squeezed the foam right down, so it formed a nice tight seal

ila_rendered

I refitted the bumper and combined compartment seals

ila_rendered

Popped the bag light pressure hose in

ila_rendered

We can start filling some proper holes now! Motor seal lays down

ila_rendered

Then the motor sits on top, making sure it sits right for the cable runs

ila_rendered

and down it gets clamped

ila_rendered

We can re-line the top housing with fabric goodness, all washed now!

ila_rendered

Both post diffusers weren't actually perished, and once washed up came up like new!

ila_rendered

All fitted!

ila_rendered

The wiring can be run now

ila_rendered

The PCB refitted

ila_rendered

Tool holder clipped back in

ila_rendered

and filled with tools!

ila_rendered

Time for the top cover! I'd run the cable guard over the wire wheel and got it looking alot better

ila_rendered

LED lens fitted
