Maintaining your Vax Blade 2 Max Cordless Vacuum Cleaner


The NEW Vax Blade 2 Max 40v has almost 3 times more suction power† than any cordless vacuum we’ve ever produced and proven to clean carpets better than the UK’s top 10 best-selling cordless vacuums*; that’s the cleaning performance of the best corded uprights‡, in a sleek, lightweight design.

These video guides will help you get the most out of your machine and give advice on maintenance and cleaning.

Always check the safety guidelines in the user guide, switch off the Vax Blade 2 Max and unplug from the charger and mains before carrying out any maintenance or troubleshooting.

Vax Blade 2 Max | Removing and Emptying the Dirt Container

After using your Vax Blade 2 Max, you will need to empty the dirt container. For best cleaning results, empty the dirt container after every use.

Vax Blade 2 Max | Cleaning the Filter

Making sure the dirt container is empty, this video will show you how to clean the filter. This maintenance should be carried out regularly, every 4-6 uses.

Vax Blade 2 Max | Cleaning & Replacing the Brushbar

The Twin Helix Brushbar on the Vax Blade 2 Max has a unique and optimised design, working at 4200 RPM to maximise pick up performance. Over time as you vacuum, it may become clogged with hair or fibres. This video will show you how to clean the Brushbar.

Vax Blade 2 Max | Removing an Obstruction from the Brushbar

If your brushbar stops rotating, it may be because there is an obstruction which has activated the motor protection sensor.

Vax Blade 2 Max | Checking For Blockages

Having trouble with the suction on your machine? If you regularly clean the filter and have checked for an obstruction on the brushbar, follow the steps in the video below to check for a blockage.
