PHILIPS SPECIALIST VACUUM CLEANER FC9130 DISASSEMBLING AND REPAIR

PHILIPS SPECIALIST VACUUM CLEANER FC9130 

DISASSEMBLING AND REPAIR 

DISASSEMBLY- AND RE-ASSEMBLY ADVISE
- Open the appliance, first remove the exhaust filter grille (item 20), and then remove the 2 screws -
C of the switch control panel (item 15).
- Undo and remove the 9 screws -
C in the upper housing (item 8). You will require a screwdriver with a 14.5 cm-long shank for this. Screwdriver 4322 009 08490 for T15 can be used.
- The component configuration shown in the exploded view may differ in case of specific versions. The components are distinguished by means of code numbers.
- When the repair is finished, check whether all functions of the appliance work properly.
- To disassemble the cord winder, use TORX screwdriver no. T10, which is one of a set consisting of T20; T15; T10; T9; T8; T7 and T6 (code number 4822 395 50145).

REPAIR INSTRUCTION
- Item 4, cotton dustbag, is used in countries in which paper dustbags are not available.
- If the reel half spring unit is replaced, shaft A must be lubricated with silicone grease. Do not apply any silicone grease to or spill any grease on terminals (43) or conductors (42).
- Item 40 is provided with a long cord-winder spring, but both long and short cords can be used in combination with this spring. (L = 9.3 m)
- Depending on the original cord, the spare cord must be shortened to the length of the original cord.
- The cord winder spring must be tensioned to the maximum level and then be rewound approx. 1.5 turn
- Item 13, air valve, opens to cool the motor if the air displacement is too low or if the airflow is blocked.
- To adjust the telescopic tube (item 59) to the required length, push the adjustment collar in the direction of the arrow while sliding the top section of the telescopic tube into or out of the lower section.
- If the function of the electronic control unit (item 12) is not required, the Triac must be short-circuited in the manner shown in the circuit diagram.
- When the vacuum cleaner is used to suck up fine dust the pores of the dustbag may become clogged, causing the passage of air through the dustbag to become obstructed. As a result, the dustbag-full indicator will indicate that the dustbag needs to be replaced, eventhough the dustbag is not full at all.
- To replace the side brushes (item 63a), the nozzle must be switched as used on hard floors.
- With the infrared remote control, the suction power can be set to one of 5 different suction power settings. When the appliance is switched on, it always starts running at the highest suction power, even without the hose being connected. Use LR03 batteries for the remote control (alkaline batteries are recommended).
- Item 72, sealing ring must be replaced if appliance whistles.
- Due to introduction of a new switch (item 11) 0320 onwards, which is not interchangable with the old switch soldered on the PCB (item 12).
- The switch lever assy (item 11a) is also modified.
