Re: PHILIPS MOBILO PLUS (vacuum)- How to remove motor...
I found a solution. At least on my Mobilo HR8572. There are two tabs on the top plastic parts that hold on to the bottom plastic part. These tabs are located above the wheels, if you look closely you will see thicker grey plastic. You have to put a big screwdriver under the top plastic part and move it outward. The tabs are 6mm thick so you have to bend it out considerably. It then pops open. Works a treat and all the motor and electrical components are easily accessible using a simple star driver

0682 did not correspond to any known Philips baby monitor model...at least nothing came up in Philips support database. I published below the manuals for different Philips baby monitors. Please check if any of them corresponds to your series.
DC14s have two drivebelts that turn the brush bar - one connects the output of the motor to the clutch, the other connects the clutch to the brush bar. You can check the latter simply by removing the sole plate and looking. Unfortunately the other belt is hidden under a plastic cover, so you cant see if it is okay or not without some dismantling. This cover is not easy to remove and requires a Torx driver to under the securing screws. If, after removing the cover, the other belt is okay, then you have a faulty clutch. New clutches are available on eBayreasonably cheaply, but again good tools and DIY skills are required. Have a look at www.dysonmedic.comwhich has some excellent info on dismantling and repairing a DC07 (the DC14 is very similar to the DC07), but unless you have accessto such tools, and feel confident to tackle it, it's probably time to callDyson or a Vacuumrepairer.
hi there my name is glen from dublin ireland....
i cant solve your problem but can explain what is happening...
i've had 3 phillips marathon vacuums over the last 5-6 years and are by far the best vacuum on the market..
but over time the constant pulling and re-coiling of the flex is loosening the wires from their connectors deep inside the unit ...
its the only explaination i can think of ,as i've changed the fuse , the plug and shortened the flex and re attached the plug but to no avail..hope this helps, just buy a new one they're brilliant
There is a plastic pop in trim cover which surrounds the switch itself. It will peel off revealing two screws which hold the switch in place onto the underside of housing. However you must also remove the rear cone shaped motor housing by a series of philips screws where the motor meets the fan intake area. You should not have to remove any screws from the front are of the fan housing Pay attention to these screws as they all face inward to the center area of the housing at the sides and underneath, but there are several lengths
Turn it over so you have access to the bottom of the unit (you should see the brushroll)
At the base where the "head" attaches to the body there is a small silver button that you must depress to remove it from the body. Press the button in with a screwdriver or unsharpened pencil while pulling the "head" away from the body.
Use a #2 Philips screwdriver to remove all the large screws from the bottom. They are all the same size and type so you can collect them for safekeeping without worrying about which one goes where. There are 2 smaller screws (if I remember correctly) that are for the upright lock that you do not need to remove. They will be on the small plastic piece near where the bottom brush "head" attaches to the vacuum.
Remove the clear plastic clog cover.
Gently pry the gray cover off. This shouldn't be too difficult as the cover goes loose when you remove the screws.
Flip the gray side over and you should see the innards including the brushroll, the motor, wiring, etc. Facing the assembly like you were looking head-on at the vacuum the belt should be on the right.
Pull up the far end (non-belted end) of the brushroll and then the belted end.
The brushroll should now be free and you should check the teeth on the belted end of the brushroll to ensure none are broken.
Remove the old belt from the motor (also toothed) and replace with new belt (a second spare would be handy to keep around and this is a good opportunity to clean up the air path).
Put toothed end of belt into the belt loop and stretch it a bit to get the toothed end back into place. The belt should auto adjust but just in case you may want to manually rotate the brushroll a few times after replacing the far end (non-toothed end)
Repeat the rest of it in reverse order to put it back.
You need top lace belt on brush roller and re[-assemble by putting plastic cover on which is retained by 2 recessed philips screws.. Prize off triangular coverat fornt.behing that you should see the belt lying loose.You need to get a blunt object to twist and push belt ovet the motor shaft. You may get it on in wrong direction and if you do,loosen off belt and twist the other way.
you have to take the headlight lenses off with a small screwdriver. then a philips screwdriver to take the 2 screws out. one each side. then remove the foil shields on each headlight . then snap loose the rear plastic clips on the cover and it will come right off. it took me an hour to find out how and 10 minutes or less to take it off. watch for the micro switch on the circuit board being worn out.it will stop the roller brush from turning.its a dollar part at any good electronics store ,but will have to be soldiered in or service might have a few from the westinghouse line .so will a broken belt which is a special grooved belt available from fantom at 18007987395..
