SOURCE: just purchased vax swift 1500,appears

A very nice model.

Yes I think there is a minor problem here.

As this is one of the bagless vacuums, everything goes first into the dust container, then the dusty air is progressively filtered on the way out.
If the leak is from around the Hepa filter pad, then try swapping it for a new one, If that works - take back the old filter for a refund.
Make sure it seals well.
If dust is blowing out in a large quantity from below the main collection tank - there is probably a rubber seal missing.
Take this up with your retailer.

If you are not saisfied - get a full refund. You ARE entitled to it if the product is "not of merchantable quality".
Worryingly I have seen disclaimers saying - "no returns if item is used" This is illegal. How can you tell if it works without using it?

Best of luck.

SOURCE: VAX HOOVER PROBLEM?

The 121 should only have the main filter ring taken out before the reservoir tank is put in which easily just falls into the main dust tank area. Make sure though that the bin's square edge is at the front where it rests at the front of the Vax where the hose comes out. Then unhook the pump to lay it in the water tank and the motor should be able to jam ontop clipping both sides down to lock. Perhaps you are putting the reservoir bucket in the wrong way.

I have a vax 1600 swift bagless and it leaves a trail of fluff behind it and won't pick up. I have cleaned the filters.


Did you check to make sure the belt is turning the brush properly and check down in the brush head for clogs?

I think I need to check yhe brushes on vax swift 1500 bagless how do I get to the motor taken some screws out nothing budged and now come to a standstill . Help please


If it's like my model, remove the top cover of the base unit (surrounds the hose connector), remove the drive belt underneath, remove the upright unit from the top of the motor housing. Hopefully, now the motor is just sitting there held by the swivel mounts. Using just your hands, pull back on the motor while pushing the housing away from it on the drive shaft side. This will allow the drive shaft to come free from the housing and the motor will then lift free.

How do you use vax 2000 to shampoo carpets. do not have a manual


Set up is complicated unless you are patient.
Remove the paper dust bag from the bottom of the canister and then filter ring. Then put in the recovery bucket of which 4 litres of warm water should be added and a capful of floor cleaning solution.
Then remove the pump wire on top of the Vax motor where the blue filter circle is (keep the filter in, do not remove it!).
If the 2000 has a separate pump notch on the rim of the Vax motor head on the outside then you should plug the black cord in that has a washer screw type metal connector. Push, twist and lock in. Then the black cord which eventually leads to a clear pipe with the older clip on wash handle that has to be clipped to the main hose handle has to have the black and see through cord clipped to the main hose and eventually down the extension pipes until you get to the floor head. If you have the older style T shaped floor head the cord should slip into the floor head easily. Then either squeezing the trigger to release the cleaning solution in, switch the Vax on and hit the secondary pump button. This will pump the cleaning solution and water into the carpet. To stop the pump you can either lock the wash trigger to stop the liquid or squeeze the trigger to make sure no other liquid comes out. Generally you can see the foamy carpet solution flowing through the see through rubber hose and eventuallly through the floor head.
To **** up the rest of the carpet solution, stop the pump button and the Vax can be used to **** out all the dirty solution/water in the carpet. Its a big and tedious task generally!
See an alternative manual for the Vax 1000 which is an older model but similar to the 2000. It is free and in pdf downloadable form:

My upright sebox4 will not stand . It keeps on dropping down.


This is usually a matter of lubrication (or lack thereof). If you look under the base of the machine, you will see that the "clip" as you call it is part of the metal axle on which the wheels are mounted. This axle is held in place by 3 metal tabs, each held by a single screw. About mid-way along, there's a spring coiled around the axle. That spring is what holds the "clip" (the bent part of the axle) against the tube that connects to the base of the bag compartment and holds it upright.
It's possible that your spring is broken, but often the problem is that the axle is sticking and the spring can't do its job properly. Try a small drop of oil under each of the 3 metal tabs. If that doesn't work, remove the 3 tabs completely, remove the axle (noting how the spring locates, so you can put it back correctly) and give everything a good clean. Then reassemble and try again.
Good luck!
