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.

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.

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 vacuum stops working after about five minuits use then I have to wait an hour before it will work again


The symptoms you describe are those of a machine that is overheating. Almost certainly there is a blockage somewhere, or one or more filters are clogged, thus impairing air flow. Clear the blockage and the problem should be solved. If this doesn't help, please post details of the model number of your machine and I'll try to be more precise. I hope this helps. I value your feedback so please remember to rate my response.

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.
