Introduction

Use this guide to replace the main capacitor on the internal circuit board of the Deep Waver. It will show you how to split the lower handle housing to gain access to the main circuit board, as well as other internal components.

The main capacitor can become damaged if the Deep Waver overheats, and will need replaced, along with other electrical components, to continue using the device safely.

Before disassembling your Deep Waver, be sure to unplug the device to avoid electric shock, and make sure the heating elements of the device are cool to avoid burns. Unlock the handle of your Deep Waver to gain access to the screws you need to remove.

Apply heat to both terminals of the capacitor with a soldering iron until the solder begins to melt. Gently pull on each leg of the capacitor once the solder has began to melt to remove the wire from the circuit board.

Conclusion

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order. Once each half of the housing have been put back together, install a new Housing Retainer to replace the one you cut off.
