Im not a specialist in this but to my knowledge, Will the unit spin if you manually turn the timer dial to spin? If so, remove power, remove the clock motor from the timer, and inspect the clock and mating timer gearing for debris or damaged gear teeth. At the worst, replace the timer. You may be able to scrape or file the damaged teeth so that the timer will progress.

Have someone look under the machine and see if it has a drive belt from the motor to the pump.
If it does, the belt could be worn out and slipping, causing the drum to not spin fast enough.
God bless your efforts.

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.
