Question about Philips Vacuums
Yes-- This is the big disadvantage of this type of Vacuum--
Stones and sand wear heavily on that impeller turning a very high rate of speed.
This can be a tricky job----- depending on how long this fan has been on the motor shaft-- and if water has been passed thru this joint--
-- It will take a complete disassembly of the power section of this vacuum--
(I have seen a few times, when the impeller could be just hit a solid blow in the 'un-tightening direction, and the impeller spun right off- -- Very god, if you can get that response! :-) )
Most of the time one has to tear the motor apart, and get a solid grip on the armature (Clamping it firmly-- but gently in a vise -- and then beating on the impeller to remove it.
Naturally-- you would need to have the correct impeller ready to spin right back on the shaft-- for the old impeller will be ruined in removal. Be sure to put some 'never-seize' on the thread, to make it easier to remove NEXT time!
How old is the machine?
Ever consider trading it in on a new type of Vacuum?
