Rainbow Riches is becoming a classic in the UK and is also hitting the Vegas casinos and going down a storm. You can play the classic Rainbow Riches slot on your mobile, tablet or desktop also. If you want to read reviews about this game then visit this Rainbow Riches Free Play site. There you can get all the related information about this game and reviews also. Here I checked all the reviews before playing this game and I like this game a lot.

There is a ball valve between the wand hose and the base hose. It can get stuck in the "base" mode, which won't then redirect suction to the wand hose. There is a spring under the cup that the open end of the hose rests in. When you release the wand from the holster with the one-touch quick release, that spring pushes the cup up and turns the ball valve to the wand setting.
  1. Unplug the vacuum.
  2. Using the one-touch quick release, remove the wand from the holster.
  3. Verify that the wand "cup" is indeed in the higher position. Do this by pushing on the bottom of the cup with your finger. It should easily depress.
  4. Remove the wand hose from the main unit using the quick disconnect feature. Put your fingers into the hole and feel to the right. You will feel the closed valve, verifying that it is stuck in "base" mode.
  5. Using a screw driver, insert the tip at the TOP of this valve and gently pry it downward. This shouldn't take much force.
  6. Reassemble the hose wand using the quick connect feature and reholster the wand.
  7. Plug in the unit and verify that the base unit has suction.
  8. Remove the wand from the holster and verify IT has suction.

I searched using and did not find that model. Not sure if Vertex III is only sold overseas, and not in the United States.

Possible manuals or similar model manuals:

I do not have that particular model in front of me, but here is a likely problem.
It could be the brush bearings/ bushings are clogged with dirt or hair, or even rust.
If you can remove the brush and the bearings/bushings ( which are the parts that hold the spinning brush), see if they work freely in your hand.
If one end or the other is bound up, it is clogged with something.
If you cannot remove the bearings/bushings from the machine, you might try some drops of a penetrating oil into those bearings/bushings to see if they will "free up".
I personally use a product called "P B Blaster", which, although it has a strong smell, is one of the best penetrating oils on the market.
After re-reading your letter, I am wondering if the belt is the problem. Although it has a "lifetime" guarantee, that might only mean it will be replaced by the company for free should it fail.
If it is worn out, it could slip, causing this problem.
God bless your efforts.
