Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

Hi The band snapped the other day on my Vax Swift Turbo upright hoover and i got a new band from a Hoover repair centre. (Im assuming the bloke sold me the correct band). Was tight to go on. And it seemed ok. However, after switching on the band snapped immediately. Kinda burnt as well (at the point it snapped). Any ideas as to what the problem is here? The hoover is roughly 2 years old and used around 3 times per week. thanks Mike

    Thanks for replying mate. The brush roll was cleaned and all hair etc taken away and seems to be in good condition, turns fine. Anything else?

Sounds like the brush roll is bad. Did you check the ends to make sure they turn freely? If not, replace it.

    Well if the brush roll is ok, then the belt must be catching somewhere. When you put the belt on, turn the brush roll manually to see if it moves with no restrictions. Also where the brush roll sits, check to see if the plastic has over heated and started to melt.

My vax pet Hoover has lost its suction I've emptied it there's no blockages and Iv cleaned the filter


first, if it has a hose check for being plugged, you may have to take the vacuum apart further till you reach the fan on motor which may have hair,lint,etc wrapped around it which can cause low suction.

How do I fix the wheels back in my Vax upright hoover


You need to list the model number to this vacuum and be more specific with your question.
'fix the wheels back' is very unclear.

How do I adjust the height of the brushes and suction


look for a blockage -something may have dislodged the lever mechanism, or be stuck preventing the roller or position leaver from moving.

I have a Vax turbo force 2000w hoover and it doesnt pick up theres hardly any suction and then it cuts out. Any ideas what the problem could be?


Yep,

Your filters are clogged. As a result the motor is straining and overheating, then a thermal cutout operates.

Clean the filters in the top of the vax and if you are ussing a cloth bag empty and wash ot. If a paper bag, replace it.

All should be well

Hi In the UK we have similar machines but they are made by Vax. If you can't source the correct user manual from Hoover.com consider the following - it is a free download.

The Vax Mach 5 and Hoover model you have are the same other than the name. Dont forget to rate, thanks.
