Repair Philips Sonicare DiamondClean

I had a problem with my Philips toothbrush: the sound got louder, the vibration effect got lost, and when I shook the toothbrush in my hand, I got aware that something was not right anymore inside.

So I opened it and found out it is just a little screw which had to be tightened again. I am sure Philips manufactured the device like this on purpose.

Photo 1 – To open the device you need some tools like these

2 – Press the housing together

3 – Be very careful when trying to pull the seal out. In my case, I broke it.

4 – Pull the seal off

5

6 – in my case, the engine was already coming out by itself after. Probably you will have to press against the shaft.

7 – pull it out

8 – Tighten this screw, use probably also loctide or another glue to keep it tight

9 – Bring it back inside

10 – If you before the housing like me, fix it with glue 😉

Die alte Hobelbank

Nachdem ich vorgestern bei ebay erfolgreich eine Hobelbank von 1930 ersteigert habe, habe ich mich gestern mit Frederic (meinem zukuenftigen Stiefbruder) in Hamburg getroffen, um sie abzuholen.
Ich denke mit €120 für die Bank und spontanen €20 für die ebenfalls sehr alten handgeschmiedeten Eisen (die wohl noch mehr “Wert” haben, als die Bank) habe ich ein gutes Geschärft gemacht.
Heute habe ich mit dem auseinanderbau, des schon staerker angegriffenen Unterteils begonnen.
