“Do not buy”

Written on: 22/07/2014 by Murdockjx143 (1 review written)

This was purchased at Xmas this year it has blocked with every use I phoned vax in July 14 and they said there was a problem, with the design, I am not an engineer but even I could see there was no way the dirt could suck into the tub,as it clogs around the filter, if vax have been making hovers for years how did they not notice this in production, and the utensils that stay on the tube fall off when in use… Read Full Review

“had not problems can't believe what others been writing ”

Written on: 17/07/2014 by Gypsybela (1 review written)

NOT AS BAD AS WHAT IS POSTED After reading all the bad reviews I thought I mite add my 2 cents. Yes it could have been made better as in the parts if you twist the nossle the wrong way it will make a high pitched screaming noise. However I have two cats and it cleans up pet hair like nothing before. Used in a share house of young people it was given the name "the jet" and great that it can be used on the bed and couch turn the power down can clean fly screens. Super easy the take apart the… Read Full Review

“1st class rubbish vacuumcleaner!”

Written on: 24/05/2014

Seems good the first times you use it but very soon the problems start...every square meter you have to clean the filter as it blocks (in a normal household with no exceptional stuff that we vacuumclean!). The filter is not easy to replace, the cap doesn't fit really well, the plastic thing to open the cover is very light plastic. What is a vacuumcleaner of which you have to empty the filter after every two minutes??? Now the filter is dirty and starts to be broken on the sides...the dirt stays… Read Full Review

“Worst vacuum cleaner I've ever bought”

Written on: 21/05/2014 by Stevie58 (1 review written)

This is the worst vacuum cleaner I've ever owned. The first one stopped working after only 3 uses. The filter blocked very quickly and even after extensive cleaning still didn't work properly. The manufacturer refused to give a refund and instead sent a replacement which is exactly the same. Vac still refuse to acknowledge the problem or give a refund despite this machine being unfit for purpose. I have now given up. It's going in a skip and I'll buy a Henry… Read Full Review

“UNRELIABLE RUBBISH - DO NOT BUY!!”

Written on: 12/05/2014 by Teddybear2 (1 review written)

I originally bought the VAX Power Pet 6 in August 2012 which came with a 2 year warranty - just as well! After about 3 months, it started overheating and the blockage light wouldn't go off, despite the filters being thoroughly cleaned every week. I received an "upgrade" to the Power 7, which burned out after about 5 months! Received another replacement Power 7 which lasted about the same length of time before the motor burned out!! Have now received 4th replacement, however, my home help is… Read Full Review

“Do not buy”

Written on: 18/04/2014 by Jaliyah1953 (1 review written)

This is the worst vacuum cleaner I have ever used. Previous hoovers have lasted me years. I have had 3 machines in 5 months. Unfortunately they will not refund, only replace. The filters have to be cleaned out at least once a week, and this takes more time than the hoovering. You could not pay me to have one of these in the future… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/05/2014

To be honest, once bitten twice shy, I would not have accepted another one. The firm must see the reviews and they all say the same thing, it is also the worst Hoover iv ever had!!! Every time i use it i empty it and clean it out, there is just my husband and myself and no mess, so this Hoover does not get treated badly. The red light comes on to indicate there is a block in it somewhere, constantly, so then it dies after even 15 minutes, totally fed up with it and its not even 1 year old, so I know exactly what you mean, awful! I have now got a Henry Hoover, the best on the market, great, no point ringing the firm about my vac as its the same with everyone you read about in the reviews, a waste of time, so hope you get sorted soon and don't go down that road again.

“Watch your back”

Written on: 14/03/2014 by Zimbilly (1 review written)

Bought this thing to replace my old mk3 dyson, big mistake, persevered for 5 months now, its heavy, it loses suction and if you use the flex pipe you end up with bruising to your body, instructions say you have to position it against something to stop it falling over or following you, what a laugh, you would have to chain it to the floor, bits have cracked or broken off, all I can say is this is the worst item I have ever bought, half price offer looks good but beware, should have returned it… Read Full Review

“Be Warned Do NOT Buy this Hoover”

Written on: 19/01/2014 by AlanRC (1 review written)

Do not buy this VAX hoover! If you ignore my warning, you will regret it. I bought one for my mother and first impressions were fantastic. So much so I went out and bought one for myself. However, within two weeks my mother’s VAX hoover had blown its motor. My mother is 75 years of age and uses talcum powder on her body. Some of the talcum powder falls onto the carpet. She has a professional cleaner who attends once a week. This VAX hoover simply cannot handle the powder as the filters are… Read Full Review

“Great to start with but then its all downhill!”

Written on: 15/12/2013 by vimtoribena (1 review written)

We were bought this Vax power 7 Pet hair vacuum as a wedding gift about 3 months ago. Initially it was very powerful and picked up cat hairs very easily. Within 2 weeks it was slowly loosing power so I cleaned it all out and washed the filters but it didn't really help. The slot that the pipe attaches to when it is stored has cracked due to the flimsiness of the design which I don't suppose has helped the suction at all. Also the tab to open the bottom of the roller brush attachment to unblock… Read Full Review

“Not fit for purpose read before you buy”

Written on: 11/11/2013

I spend more time cleaning up the mess this machine causes than I do using it. The first time I used it the holder for the pipe/hose broke. This machine is badly designed after a short time using it it blocks up, it can't cope with anything more than light dust. All the usual things you would expect a vacuum cleaner to pick up such as hair small bits of debris block it up. After a short period of time the filter blows off and it throws out large amounts of dust into the air which it takes ages… Read Full Review

“Fault in design”

Written on: 17/10/2013 by david-k (1 review written)

The Vac 7 Pet product is 100% useless. Hair constantly gets caught in the aperture where it is spun into the container, and needs to be manipulated to unblock it. Quite a major flaw in design. The cleaning end broke within one week. The machine looses it's suction, even using full power. This is the very worst vacuum cleaner ever purchased. Went back to using the Meile and put the Vax in the rubbish bin after having it for 3 weeks. A total waste of time and money… Read Full Review

Now the motor on the 3rd one has burned out as well.

we have had this vac about 6 months and wish we had bought a Henry instead. The Tesco we was at had run out of Henry's so we bought the vax instead and what a mistake we are having to take it apart and unblock it before and during every use we only have a small 2 bedroomed house and you can't even do a room without it getting blocked..... DON'T BUY ONE...... I have read other reviews now and there are loads of people saying the same I just wish I had looked first...... DON'T BUY ONE… Read Full Review

“Blocked again”

Written on: 29/05/2013

I phoned the Vax service centre, to ask their advise regarding my Power 7 cleaner blocking all the time ie every 10mins. I was told it was a high maintenance machine and needed to be cleaned regularly ????. I hope they did not mean every 10 mins, because I think this makes this model Not Fit For Purpose. I would never ever buy this machine again, or any other Vax product. I liked the long suction tube and the big dust collector, that's why I bought it. The service centre told me that this was a… Read Full Review

I totally agree. In just over a year I have had three of these machines, they have all broken down. Last week the third one broke down and I certainly don't want a 4th. Totally unreliable and not fit for purpose. However, Vax won't give you your money back....just insist in giving you a replacement. If anybody wants any attachments I have a garage full of them.

Thanks for your reply. They sent me a new dust collector, this has not cured the problem.
I would have thought that a company as big as Vax would show some concern regarding this product.
They did have a good reputation, which is being lost very quickly.
DO SOMETHING VAX. Help us cure the problem, a replacement machine is not the answer.

I had same blocking problem with the first one. Just need to remove the hair and bits that accumulate in the first stage, i.e. round bit inside.....if you know what I mean....or bits of paper that get trapped in there. If that doesn't clear the blocking it means the filter on the top is clogged up with dust. I used to wash mine out everytime I used it. Admittedly it was in a dusty old cottage with a dog!! Clean once a week for max of 3 hours. Not running machine all the time cos got all the other bits to clean as well, sinks, toilets,etc., but it would often stop working cos so hot at the back. Usually leaving it for an hour worked, but yet again the whole thing has just packed up. Did take it to bits and found lots of dust instide. Hoovered it out with my old cleaner but still not working. Looking at buying a Dyson now but reluctant to pay out for anything!! Perhaps just carry on with my old one with a bag!!

“High maintainence but good when working.”

Written on: 14/05/2013 by KirkM (1 review written)

It worked very well for several weeks and then cut out - it has an auto heat control function. So I cleaned all the filters and waited 20 minutes. I was now very dirty but it then worked fine again. But it has now done this every 3 weeks or so. Vax service staff very helpful and clearly aware of the (design?) problem but we are spending nearly as much time cleaning filters as cleaning the house. Does suck for Europe when working tho'. I like the long hose and have no problem with the weight… Read Full Review
