And with the belt cover fitted, the power head is done!

ila_rendered

And we can move onto the bin, and fit the flap clip

Bottom flap now, and the seal is fitted

ila_rendered

And fitted to the bin

ila_rendered

Which is now done and can join the done pile

ila_rendered

Main machine now, and motor first

ila_rendered

Which looks much better after a good dusting off. The big perimeter seal is fitted

ila_rendered

Then the fancase seal

ila_rendered

Then the motor drops on, and is plugged in

ila_rendered

The wires are run down the side of the motor, then the top cage is dropped on. This scoops the motor up and sits it inside the cage, so it cab be removed and the wires fed where they need to go

ila_rendered

The two halves are then screwed together

ila_rendered

And popped the covers and springs on
ila_rendered

Popped the pivot lock pegs in

ila_rendered

To the edges again, and the black bin locking ring is pegged into the end frame

ila_rendered

The wheel goes on, then the inner frame, and it's all screwed down

ila_rendered

On the motor end, the carry handle and brackets are re-fitted

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

And screwed down. I forgot to fit the front wheels to the power head earlier, so on they go now

ila_rendered

And it's done!

I then dug all the paperwork out, and the warranty stuff, which I did register, and enquired about a new post motor filter. Whilst I awaited a response, I packed it back into its box

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

And put it in my mums loft for the long term, aiming to put the new filter with it for another time! HOWEVER, it seems Vax are keen to rid themselves of these, as they don't have ANY parts for them... What they did, was ship me a brand new Vax Air Silence Powered Head, as the equivilant machine they produce now... Which was kind of annoying, as I only wanted a flipping filter

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JW1C4L-1OM8" target="_blank">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JW1C4L-1OM8</a>

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h3RGt8ZrmlI" target="_blank">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h3RGt8ZrmlI</a>

So I sold that, after producing those videos, and will keep my Air Revolve. I know it's rubbish, a massive failure, an embarrassment to the company, but I love it! I love it's design, as it's a modern day equivilant of this!



So, it stays! I'll have a play with it in a decade or so!
