Good day and Welcome to Justanswer,

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today.

I am sorry to hear you are having trouble with your Vax Blade 4 Cordless Vacuum Cleaner.

This indicates either the charger is faulty and/or battery will need replacement.

You may try this:

Please leave it unplugged for few minutes.

Then press and hold the ON button; whilst holding the ON button put the charger back on and let go the button after around 20 seconds.

See if it works, if the issue is still there, I am afraid the battery pack and/or charger will need replacement.

Usually the battery lasts for around 3-4 years.

VAX provides 2 years warranty hence, if it is under 2 years old, you may call VAX at 0330(###) ###-####and get the battery replaced under warranty.

If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.

That is expensive is there another no

I am afraid, that is the number for VAX and there is no other number.

If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.

I hope I was able to answer your question.

If you would like to ask me another question in the future, you can add me as a favorite Expert.

You'll have the option to do that on your "My Questions" page if you choose to rate our interaction or you can request me by name if you wish.

Have a wonderful day.

Hi Kevin
I tried what you recommended and I am needing a new charging unit and a battery it goes the highest it charges is 2. Unit is still under guarantee. Can you confirm this.

Kevin No one got back to me

Hi again, sorry was offline during last few days.

You will have to contact the manufacturer and get it repaired under warranty.

Well, to be honest I do not understand your review.

 I understand your frustration with your appliance not working however, hope you understand, I can only give you truthful information as simply telling you only what you wish to hear but what may not necessarily be true would only hurt you.

Also, if you open and do repairs yourself in your appliance, it will void off the warranty, which is not recommended.

Have a great day.
