To replace Junior’s power inlet, you’ll need a Phillips head screwdriver, the flat-head screwdriver included in Junior’s box, and a new power inlet.
Before starting any repair on Junior, turn his side power switch OFF and remove his dustbin.
Then, flip Junior over onto a flat surface and remove his main brush using the flat head screwdriver. Keep all removed screws and parts safely aside, as they may be needed for later reassembly.
Use a Phillips head screwdriver to remove the 7 screws on Junior’s underside that hold him together.
Junior’s cover is no longer secured, so hold the top and bottom together as you carefully flip him back onto his wheels. Grip Junior’s cover from the back and lift up to expose the mainboard.
Slide the power inlet down and tuck it somewhere safe to avoid compressing its wires.
To detach Junior’s cover completely, disconnect 4 circuit plugs.
Junior’s cover is now completely detached and can be set aside for the rest of the repair.
Unplug the power inlet from the mainboard.
Remove the 2 screws securing the power inlet to each of Junior’s charging plates.
Feed the wiring for the old inlet out from under Junior’s mainboard.
Now place the new inlet so the red wire connects to Junior’s left charging plate. Install the small screw securing the red wire to the charging plate. Ensure that the charging plate does not slide out of place as you install the screw.
Feed the black wire so it reaches the right charging plate.
Install the screw on the right charging plate.
Feed the inlet under the mainboard so it reaches its space on the mainboard.
Plug the new power inlet to its space on the mainboard.
When finished, you’re ready to start closing Junior’s cover.
Reattach all 4 circuit plugs connecting Junior’s cover to the mainboard.
Remember to slide the power inlet back into its space on Junior’s cover.
Align the cover’s edges precisely. Then, flip Junior over onto a flat surface.
Ensure that no wires are compressed in the main brush compartment or visible at the edges of the bumper. If so, take a step back and lift the cover to tuck the wires into the appropriate spaces inside Junior.
Once the wires are all safely tucked away and Junior’s cover is aligned properly, reinstall all 7 screws previously removed from Junior’s underside.
Install the main brush and dustbin before your next use and Junior is completely reassembled!
