Question about VAX Appliances 2000 Canister Vacuum

1 Answer

How to open the motor housing.

NOT A QUESTION, BUT AN ANSA............................
Anyone interested in stripping down the motor area of a Vax 2000, (MAKE SURE UNIT IS NOT CONNECTED TO ELECTRICITY SUPPLY) first remove the 2 black cross head screws form the black plastic carry handle where the on / off button is. This effectively reveals the inside of the handle. At both ends of the open handle, where it meets the motor housing / body (orange plastic) you should find a 10mm bolt. The one about six inches below the on / off switch is obvious, but the one at the opposite end of the handle isn't. To reveal the other bolt head you need to unscrew the 2 black cross head screws that hold the electric cable clamp in place. With this removed, you will now see the second 10mm bolt head. Remove both bolts and carefully raise the orange casing. Be careful not to stress the connected cables. Disonnect the cables if you need to remove the motor. Before re-assembly it's worth tightening all bolts etc, visible inside the housing, as these may have loosened over time due to motor vibration. A fairly simple task, no expertise required. A 5-10 min job.
Tools required - Small cross head screwdriver and a 10mm socket.

Vax carpet washer deluxe leaks from bottom of water tank, somewhere between coming out of the tank and going into the jet to squirt on the floor. pissing me off - any help would be great!


This is a common problem known by repairers. What happens is residue gets stuck in the seals. The next time you use the machine and press the trigger the seals stay open and water leaks continually. It was suggested that maybe after you finish using the machine you do a whole tank of plain water to rinse it out but I haven't had any luck with that. I am stuck with a machine that doesn't work.

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.

Vax 2000 trips electrics


Try the reset drive belt brush button - you'll find it underneath the main power switch on the handle. Also check the brush isn't clogged, by the sole plate by tipping it over and undoing the screws on the bottom place where the beater bar is.

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.

How to change carbon brushes in Vax 2000


Bend back the three tabs and cut off the contact wire as close to the top tab as possible. You can then pull the brush (or what is left of it) out. The new brushes have a brass plate the same size as the brush opening. The connection wire that you cut away on the original brush is attached to this plate so you don't have to solder the connection. Push the new brush into the holder (you might have to file the carbon slightly to get it in). Then you have to compress the spring so that it all fits into the brush holder (this is difficult) once this is in keep the sping compressed with a small screw driver or other small tool, and bend the three tabs back over the brass plate to hold it in place. This is tricky but can be done.
