vax cordless

Got these two to collect later, bought in as faulty to refurb and move on.
The 07 will be straight forward but never had one of these cordless vax machines in before - i think i bought it out of curiosity tbh.
dont know model number yet, anyone recognise it or had one in before.
reportedly suddenly became dead, but the batteries appear to be charging.

If it was assembled it can be disassembled - if we can't repair it then it probably isn't worth repairing !

They block up for fun. We get loads of them in to unblock.

Thanks for the reply, well the light works on the front so that's a good start.
It's sat in the car still, need to get these three 14's and an 07 out of the way first and then will have a look at it.

Those vax cordless cleaners are amazing. They pick up loads of grit and dust. I love mine for when I can't be bothered getting a "real" vacuum out

Had a look at this vax tonight, revealed to be knackered arced terminals on the body.
Tested cyclone motor and beater motor with bench power supply and all ok.
If i push cylinder with a bit of man force onto the spine then i get the machine to run ok.
The thumb catch is fine as is the indent that the cylinder locks into on the base.

To be honest i picked it up for next to nowt, was going to refurb and sell on but i dont want any come backs on this one, and in reality i could make more on it for potential spares.

If you want to get to the cyclone motor there's a screw at the back and one hidden under the vax label on the front, flip top off and start/boost pcb / motor are in there.

If you break it up, and the battery is good then I'll have it off you.
