Brush Bar stopped turning.  Cleaned entire Brush head up to Motor; wires not connected from yoke PCB to motor.  I can re-attach but to which color? black to black but which blac to orange?!?  Yes, I am curious enough to be dangerous.  I did UN-plug the electrical cord to the outlet :) before taking apart.

Pop the suction release control cover back on

Then test it to make sure it works before putting the wheels back on!

And all being well, we are done!

But has it improved it at all?

Yes! It works very very well. I would be impressed, but being a Vax, a few months of use will see paid to that, but at least we tried!

It sold very quickly though, so that's that done!

Thanks for reading!

And the push button falls out of the other side



That's it, the machine is apart! Everything was washed, dried and polished!

ila_rendered

And it can go back together! Starting with the release latch

With the bottom flap opened, the inner part untwists a 1/4 turn and withdraws

The reason for all that fun* is that 2 screws sit behind them

The two buttons pop off, although this can be done after the top is removed I suppose

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

Remove the rest of the screws holding the two parts together and the top lifts off with a bit of wriggling

ila_rendered

Various cable routings



Cord reel lifts out
