Tip & How-To about Brita 35530 UltraMax Digital Water Dispenser
For consumers with the Brita Ultramax (OB24), the one with a digital memo. Here's how you can modify the battery housing for replacement.
Important: It is best to take pictures along the way so you know where the parts go during re-assembly.
I attached photos along on bottom of page for easy viewing.
1.) Remove the battery housing unit from the cover. It is easier if you unclip the small cover off from the larger (main) cover to do this. Carefully pry along the edges with a butter knife until the housing is raised up enough for you to pull if off with your fingers.
2.) Turn the housing upside-down (LCD reader faced down). Now carefully cut/slicing along the topside outer edges of the battery unit with a razor blade. Make sure it is cut evenly so that it can be reused as a 'cover'.
3.) After it is cut and exposed, tap the internals out of the clear plastic housing so you can get access to the battery. Stick something thin (such as the newly cut plastic cover) through the battery lever and push the CR1620 battery out. Replace battery, put everything back into its plastic housing.
4. After everything is reassembled with its new battery, put the (cut) plastic cover piece back, hold gently and wrap some clear packing tape such as 3M. You'll have to measure the tapes and cut them to fit. Secure the top portions with tape, then wrap along the sides to secure the rests.
