Title: Vax G3 V112T - Stripdown and Refurb
Post by: beko1987 on February 15, 2015, 09:57:49 PM
I often have a few crap vacuums lying around that I get given. They come in handy sometimes too, an old colleague and freind of mine is moving out of her parents house, and asked me if I had anything. She has bare floorboards, so I didnt think a DC07 would be very good, so I said I'd have a look and see what I had.

I found a Bush bagless cleaner in the shed, but upon turning it on it seemed the motor had killed itself, so I had another rummage and found this:

(https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-b29ODfbKAhA/VN0a1vRk-9I/AAAAAAAAh8k/vxO6_MDdg5Y/s800/upload_-1.jpg)

I remember getting this, a lady posted up on a local selling site asking if anyone wanted 2 free hoovers, and 4 people tagged me in the post. Got a nice DC04 Absolute+, which is long sold, and this. It's idential in pretty much every way to a Vax Centrix 3 I had a few years ago, which was shite tbh, but she wanted a cheap vac, a cheap vac she shall get!

Dustbin out

5 screws and one security torx screw and the top housing lifts off

(https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-cpVxIm_JGTU/VN0a42pTzvI/AAAAAAAAh80/eNSbmaYmTBY/s800/upload_-1.jpg)

Onto the tools now. The handle had a tool holder on, I didnt get any tools with this machine, and the random dyson ones I've got for the machine dont fit on it, so I binned it off

(https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-PjqUKTvByEU/VOC_PLzHLvI/AAAAAAAAiYg/Nov3Xt71wmw/s512/upload_-1.jpg)

It works, but I almost thought it was broken as the suction was no better than a 400w dirty fan Turbopower 1 through the tools, before realising that the pre motor filter needed to be fitted to bridge the gap between motor housing and dustbin.

Filters are ordered, and the conclusion to this thread will be done when they arrive!

Tidied the shed up today too to make use of the space given by these two vacs not being in it anymore!

The new filters arrived earlier

(https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-gIgrHfQv8hk/VOTaw18CxrI/AAAAAAAAicI/YnwpZ0Qh8RI/s800/upload_-1.jpg)

(https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-q9vmKkdcM4o/VOTavCitYGI/AAAAAAAAicA/nDC1qRDbVGw/s800/upload_-1.jpg)

Foam outer one in first

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-_P7_29Ldd-I/VOTatn_0EWI/AAAAAAAAib4/noIOB15DBg4/s800/upload_-1.jpg)

Then the HEPA one

(https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-dMdSP_YHBcY/VOTarlibiZI/AAAAAAAAibw/wUUkAnuhOLs/s800/upload_-1.jpg)

and the post motor filter

(https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-Y6UUQ6Uh5m0/VOTaqAQVHYI/AAAAAAAAibo/rBcZTgC2bhU/s800/upload_-1.jpg)

The suction was transformed now the bin and motor unit were sealed. Speed adjuster only work on low, med or high, bit of a con that, but this machine is truly made down to a cost, probably only cost Vax 5 per unit to buy and have re-badged from china!

Found 3 good used Dyson tools to go with it too
