Question about VAX Appliances Vacuums

1 Answer

I have a vax mach 6. There is very little suction when using the tools and it will switch itself after a few minutes. I have had it to bits and cleaned it. I can not find any blockages. The belts also seem fine.

Vax pet 6 wont switch on


I have had two Vax problems and both were a faulty on-off switch after very little work.

Another common problem with portable appliances is internal breaks in the power lead.

Using a multimeter it doesn't usually take long to check the obvious things - if you are competent to do so.

How do I unjam my vacuum?


Although you can do it, and it might work, understand that the machines of today are make largely by robots, and they are really not concerned about long life.
Now to help you.
Find someone who can finish taking your machine apart, and with compressed air, and a very strong vacuum , and maybe some hand tools and pieces of coat hanger, you can clean the whole thing out and unclog it.
A little bad news? You may find the motor has destroyed the plastic housing which is holding it and the machine may have bit the dust.
I do vacuum repair, and I see this every few months.
God bless your efforts.

No suction through main part but working ok throgh hose


Check for a clog in the power head where the intake is. It could be just behind the brush, or by detaching the hose from the powerhead, in that area. It's fairly a common problem since the opening is a bit small.
Remove the clog and suction returns.

Vax mach 5 burning smell and revving loud


The revving/burning is because the belt is burning off and the power head motor is running without load...
Flip the carpet power head upside down on the rug and look for visible screws and screwdriver release slots on the bottom plate of the head.
When you remove the burned belt determine the cause. Will the brush roll freely or is it jammed with hair and fiber?. Clean the burned rubber from the motor shaft before replacing the broken belt, available at a vac specialty shop.
