If you can by pass the switch see if the machine runs that way. If it works by bypassing the switch then the switch needs replacing.

Many Vax vacuum cleaner trouble-shooting and maintenance tips are available here: https://support.vax.co.uk/ . The VRS116 support page is https://support.vax.co.uk/u90-ma-re-powerforce-version?___store=support_portal_uk .

The user guide for the VRS116 applies to several models. You can find a link to this manual from the above Vax support page link by searching on the VRS115: https://support.vax.co.uk/u91-ma-be-powerforce-version . The link to the manual is just above the Maintenance section. The direct link to the manual is http://library.vax.co.uk/resource/1387/vrs115/user-guide.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Most common fault with vacuum cleaners is an internal break in the power cord. This is followed by switch problems and then the internal thermal fuse or breaker.

The answer is to partially dismantle and check the circuit with a multimeter.

Power cords usually fail close to either end so taking a chance and shortening it by a foot or two and fitting a new plug could pay off.

Check the hose where it attaches inside the machine. They often get cracks which leak when using the tool.

Any vacuum cleaner repair and sales shop would be able to supply the parts.

There is a hubcap assembly on the outside of each rear wheel that must be removed. Under the hubcap you will need to remove the e clip from the shaft to allow the wheel to slide off.
