Ok, so thers a voucher available on the smart Robovac taking it down to £160, it’s lowest price on Amazon.co.uk.
Nice find for some help around the house.
Reminds me “old Willy” has to work now.
Enjoy the week Paul, relaxing at work from the vacations!
I’ll relax ant work while Mary is busy at home
She will soon need one of her small brush gears replaced soon. Things are getting a bit grinding.
I did a replace of the motor unit.
After opening I saw the gear inside was absolutely worn out.
You will need Charlie to help,
Small fingers are the best for taking off the tiny plugs.
There is a video:
But never do handle the screws like this "… " does.
Never an engineer.
That’s a good deal for anyone wanting to try a Robovac!!
I’ve got the basic model 15C and it’s still going great - it’s had a bit of a rest over the Summer with the kids being home and them leaving stuff around - but I’ll get it into it’s normal routine again as they return to school this week!
Thanks for that Franz.
I’ll find the parts and watch the video
Same here Fiona.
Ours has had a bit of a break but has now started normal service. 9.30am daily
The gears are not offered, its the whole motor.
After “surgery” I opened the transmission case of the motor and found that rotten nylon gear.
This could be replaced of course, but where to find…
Maybe the gears are plastic to create a deliberate weak point to protect more expensive or delicate parts.
But if you can’t buy the gears that’s poor.
When I dismantle I will search the Internet for an equivalent, I’m sure they exist out there somewhere
Yes they exist somewhere.
Standardized parts of course.
But not sure you can buy only a single one.
