Vax V2300 - Stripdown and Refurb
« on: August 13, 2015, 11:19:30 PM »
I took this in part exchange for a DC07 a few weeks ago. Don't normally go for modern rubbish Vax's, but it was complete





It is VERY loud, infact the lady who bought the 07 came round with her daughter in tow to check it wouldnt make her screama nd cry like the vax does...

I turned it on, and the release valve blew straight open, so I clocked the filter, agreed on 15 off the 07 and kept it. Mainly because I saw this



Typical  :censored:vax, even my 2015 AirRevolve does this after 2 or 3 uses...



Mmmm that filters done a good job then







Better. The brushroll was also like this





(Turn your speakers down for this...)

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45NHzcKxgg8" target="_blank">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45NHzcKxgg8</a>

It did pick up this though...



So meh, lets do this!

Hose and filter off to go through the washing machine





Cyclone assembly off



Filter cover back off



Turbo tool off



Retaining ring off





Split out







Only one axle from the turbine comes off





Extention pole and crevice tool off



Turbo tool cradle slides up off the handle



Dusting brush. Picked loads of fluff and hair out of this...



Cable off



Screw out of the top hose hook



This releases a holding peice, and the handle lifts off



The handle grip comes off the main handle





The switch cover pops off, and the spring is retreived



Underneath now, and undo lots of screws





The suction inlet comes off the hood







The clear visor unclips from the hood



Furniture guard pulls off the lower housing



Belt and brushroll off



Yummy...





Brushroll split. Couldnt get the axle out of one of the end caps and didnt want to break it so left it be...



2 pivot hinges come off now



and the main body lifts off the lower chassis



The front wheels unclip from behind a moulding on the chassis, and lift out



the wheels pop out of the frame



The height adjuster knob pops out



and the top pops off that



Recline pedal snaps out



The rear wheels are nice and easy to remove, no horrible clamp washer here! 1 ickle circlip



and they fall off



and the caps pop off



Onto the main body now. The first of many, many things to come off is the hose joiner





Lots more screws come out and the back splits in half. You can remove the cyclone entry seal now



2 big screws at the bottom



and the back chassis comes off the motor housing



2 screws inside release the top hose mount







Another screw releases the top cord hook



Lower cord hook and bottom hose mount pop out from underneath inside



Stripped!



Motor now



Some screws later



Wires into the switch



Snippy snip of the neutral wire as its joined by those one use only grip clamps



Switch out. Identical to a dyson switch





Release valve out





The useless sound deadening had taken some hits



as had the front diffuser



Probably weeks away from overheating and tripping the tco or exploding violently



The motor fan wasnt too bad



so I picked it all out and removed the top and bottom mounts



Cyclone





Bloody stupid cyclone tbh, its mahoosive but the fill line is only 5cm up...



The inner 'cone' twists off 2 latches on the lid





This bit unscrews from under the black housing





Handle and release button unscrew as well



Stripped!



DC50 cleaned that mess up nicely, even in its ruined state tbh!

Everything was given a good wash and then a good polish with G3, to put some shine on and hide the swirls all over the cheap plastic

Cyclone first















Fin. Motor Housing now





The foam bits cleaned up a treat (had to vac both off before washing though)











Quick fix to the neutral wire







Middle section next













Lower chassis now















These went back in really stiff, so had to deploy a drop of grease to help it alone













The filter came up like new luckily



although not quite as well as this photo makes it look...













And done!







Currently dealing with a stubborn woman who wont pay 5 for me to come and deliver it, and is getting all snotty when I wont hold it for her as she wont even vaguley let me know when shes able to come and get it  >:(
