A. As of Sept 17, 2016, it’s been a year and I’ve been unable to obtain any spare parts. There’s no information about the parts provided on their website or the USA locations. They offer parts but don’t fulfill the requests, even for the pieces eligible for replacement in the warranty.

Genesis Minimax Review

A reviewer Rudolf Novack states in his review“Genesis Minimax is useless. They bought it after reading reviews and thought it would suffice for use in their RV but it doesn’t. The substandard suction does not pick up debris. Even after vacuuming the carpet they could pick up hair. The reviewer couldn’t return it so they are throwing it out and bought the Shark Rocket. The small and lightweight Chilli Vac is ineffective.”

As per another user Johnson Cage’s Genesis Minimax review“Bought it for their tile bathrooms and small kitchen, the filter plugs up quickly. However, the vacuum cleaner heats up intensely after just five minutes of use. According to the instructions, it has to be left aside for 5 minutes to cool down. But that proves to be a waste of time. The reviewer adds that their rollers stopped working completely. They wouldn’t recommend the defective stick vac to anyone. They could barely use it for a few months.”

Sharon Brooke mentions in her Genesis Minimax review“The On/Off button is awkwardly placed and it switches off when they try to vacuum under the bed and the railing hits it. The cleaner also does not pick up tiny pieces of lint.”

Martha Carol reveals in Genesis Minimax review“Though the vacuum is strong, the brush stopped working after just two weeks. According to another reviewer, it could not pick up lint off their low pile area rug. It also created a deafening noise.”

Christine Layton complains in her review“Genesis Minimax has a good suction power but the main vacuuming attachment has stopped working. They took the unit part thrice and failed to fix it permanently. The vacuum works for just five minutes and stops after that. They reckon that an inner machinery generates excessive friction making brush spin and every time they realign it, the vacuum stops working.”

Scott Junge states in his Genesis Minimax review“The hoses are half the size of a regular vac and overheats quickly. One reviewer cannot decide whether to keep the vacuum or not. When they received it and used it, the machine made a bad “clicking” noise. They add that the dust bin is too small and inadequate for holding much. According to another user’s review, the vacuum is high power but the motor works up when there’s very little in the bin. Another user says that it has been okay so far but has an extremely noisy and shrill sound. It has a great concept of a vacuum on a stick with an attachment to roll across carpet. In spite of the impression of the suction part being wide, it’s just about 3 inches. They need to clean the filter every few minutes. The cleaner is bagless and the filter has a Velcro paper around it, which blocks easily.”

  1. Dear O dear these previous comments are bad. Just when I was going to buy one for my wife. Another example of Chinese Junk. Thanks for warning me just in time. Phew! Lucky me.

  2. Why does the Manufacturer make such a stupid axle stub for the wheels.The wheels keep falling of as there is no way one can repair this fault.The plastic ridges in the wheel and stub axle wear off and the wheels fall off.THis is an engineering disaster as the body now begins to scrape the carpet or the floor.How does one get this rectified.Return to the Supplier ?Please advise.

  3. Am very disappointed. The roller brush has stopped working, and was sold this machine only because of the pet hairs on the carpet. Bin is far too small, and it overheats.

  4. I am so disappointed that I bought this vacuum cleaner. It is so noisy, overheats and doesn’t have such a strong suction as advertised.
    Unfortunately bought it just prior to relocating overseas and only tried it on arrival, so cannot return it.

  5. I will not recommend the Genesis MiniMax to anyone. The Manufacturer is totally dishonest about this machines capability. Going to do my best to replace/refund for something else.

  6. I find the Genisis Minimax an absolute piece of Sh….
    The vacuum unit is very powerful but the filter is much too dense, even with a clean filter there is hardly any suction beyond the filter from the motor side. the filter blocks after every minute or so and the machine overheats.

  7. When I bought the genesis minimax I got an extra filter with the purchase The one on the machine is
    not working more, Where can I get another filter

  8. Same here…within 5 minutes the “power brush” stopped spinning and within 10 minutes it stopped working…… And I only used it on tile flooring! I BOUGHT IT LESS THAN A WEEK AGO….used it first time today!

  9. I am using my brand new Genesis Minimax for the first time today and it has stopped working. It feels like the machine is over-heating. Is this possible?
