Having problems with your VAX Appliances Vax X3 Bagless Upright Vacuum ?

I need to get the screws out of the part that does the vacuuming. I have 5 of them out, but cannot figure out how to get any others out. Do I use an Alan wrench or what?

Answers :

Most appliances now have a security screw fitted so that you need a special tool to remove them , this is a torx driver with a hole drilled in the bottom to accept the small dimple inside the screw head
\015\012Get a thin bladed terminal screwdriver file a small nick into the centre and file it down so that it fits into the head recess.
\015\012By applying a bit of pressure they normally come out
\015\012I would replace them with normal versions or hacksaw a slot across the top and us a straight screwdriver to put them back

U-Shaped piece I was in the hospital for a couple of nights and my 80 year old mother decided to go to my house and vacuum my house. When I went to get it out to vacuum the other night the u shaped part fell off. I guess my mom had somehow knocked it off. Now I cannot figure out where it goes. It is a plastic U-shaped piece. Can you help me? I sat for a hour trying to figure out where it goes.

While using, steam stopped coming out in force at the port levels in the head. Suddenly started high pitch whining, pressed button just above connection site and end flew off with great force pouring water onto floor and carpet. Unplugged immediately for safety and unable to get it to deliver steam force again. Less than one year old and used only 8-10 times only in walk areas where there is no carpet with distilled water. Please, advise, cannot find booklet. Thanks So Much, Beverly Crumme

I've had my Dyson DC14 vacuum cleaner now for approximately 9 months and been very happy with my purchase. However, It is used sparingly maybe twice a week at the very most. The problem is when I try to use the item on my carpet, you have to push really hard to get it to move. It's as though the suction power is far to strong. It certainly doesn't glide as I think it should. It still picks up as usual but I cannot imagine that having to 'force' the machine to move is the normal operating procedu

My Dyson Animal has good suction and works fine for actually picking up dirt, but when I use the vacuum with the roller, I hear a grinding/rumbling noise. Its only when I use the vacuum with the brush rotating. It does not happen hen I shut the roller brush off. The belt is fine. I cannot figure out what is wrong as there are no clogs, debris, or foreign objects stuck in the brush or in the belt. The noise seems to be the only issue. The vacuum picks up fine. It just doesn't sound right a
