Good day,

Welcome to, an independent paid question and answer platform that matches experts in various skills to customers.

My name is ***** ***** Support Technician with over 10 years of experience, and I will assist you with your appliance today. I am sorry to hear you are having trouble with your Vax, I understand how frustrating that can be. Hope we can resolve it quickly via type response.

Could you please advise the model number please. This can be found on the silver label on your machine. Your serial number is ***** barcode number and will start with 111...

Thank you for your patience while I investigated your question.

Please try this troubleshooting below,

  • The machine is not reclined. Place your foot on the base and pull the handle backwards to recline.
  • The brushroll may be obstructed or may not be correctly fitted.

However, if this doesn't resolve the issue we will need to get the machine looked at by repair centre.
If this is brand new appliance or under warranty, you should contact Vax or the dealer from where you purchased this appliance, and get it replaced immediately.

Alternatively, you may call Vax on 0330(###) ###-####to arrange warranty claim and or book repair.

Glad to be of service to you today and I do hope that I was able to assist fully. Is there anything else that I might help you with?
