Replacing UV Lamp - bObi Classic

For this repair, you will need a Phillips head screwdriver and a replacement UV lamp.

First, flip bObi's power switch OFF.

Next, remove bObi's front wheel to access one of the screws holding her together. Turn bObi's front wheel towards her bumper and, using a screwdriver for leverage, grip the wheel firmly and pull it up.

Remove the screw located beneath bObi's wheel.

Detach bObi's dustbin and remove the 2 screws on either side of it.

Remove the 2 triangular corner pieces held down by these screws.

Pull the main brush compartment forward to expose the red fastener behind bObi's main brushes. Remove the 2 smaller screws holding the red fastener in place.

Lift bObi's brush compartment up and out. To detach her brush compartment completely, unplug it from bObi by pulling at the circuit junction.

Remove the 4 screws located beneath bObi's main brushes. 

Remove the 2 screws securing the red contact point fastener onto bObi, and pull off the fastener.

Flip bObi back onto her wheels and lift her cover up.

There are 2 circuit plugs which must be removed to separate bObi's cover completely: a yellow-wired circuit plug connected to the left side of bObi's main board, and a white-wired circuit plug connected to the center of bObi's main board.

Remove the circuit plug for the UV lamp near bObi's front.

Then, remove 2 screws on the black circuit cover.

Lift the black cover up to expose the small circuit board for bObi’s UV lamp. Slide the circuit board up to remove.

Next, remove the 2 screws on the UV lamp.

Gently push the UV lamp out of its spot from underneath. Lay the replacement lamp in the empty space. Place the cover plate in first, then the lightbulb on top. Once the lamp lies flat, install its 2 screws.

Next, slide the new circuit board down into its holder.

Replace the black cover and tuck the lamp’s wires through the the indentations at the bottom of the cover. Then, reinstall the 2 screws.

Now attach the lamp’s circuit plug to the mainboard and you’re ready to close the cover.

Reconnect the white-wired circuit plug to the center of bObi's main board and the yellow-wired circuit plug to the left side of her board. Press each circuit plug firmly until they lock in their holders.

Carefully replace bObi’s cover. Make sure its edges align precisely before laying down the contact point fastener and reinstallling its 2 screws.

Next, reinstall the 4 screws located beneath bObi's brush compartment.

Reattach bObi's brush compartment.

Line up the red brush fastener on bObi and replace its 2 smaller screws.

Lay the 2 corner pieces down.

Reinstall the 2 screws on either side of bObi's dustbin.

Reinstall the screw located beneath bObi's front wheel.

Lastly, replace bObi's front wheel by turning it towards her bumper and pressing down.

Your repair is now complete!
