It's a known problem. I bought my vx550 last year in July and it stopped working this year in May. On for 5 minutes, shut down, can't run for a few hours, runs for another five minutes, etc. I called the Nutone customer service department and they exchanged the unit for a new one, cross shipped, via UPS. Mine was still under warranty though. It has to do with some defective thermostat or controller in the electronics of the vacuum.

Good luck

Some of these units have had trouble with the motors and this is what causes them to shut off. NuTone has been pretty good about replacing them under warranty. 1-888-336-6151.

Nutone central vac shuts down after a few minutes of use


this is a very common problem.

If the unit is less than 5 years old and you have your bill of sale it will be covered by warranty. Although one of my customers said that there is a recall on the motor in this unit. That is totally unverified. However, if it is still under warranty, contacting broan/nutone will give you the closest warranty depot, or they may just deal with you directly.

I do recommend that both the motor and the PC board inside be changed.

Good luck,
Mark

Vaccum runs for 2 or 3 minutes then shuts off. Can not restart it for several hours. We have tried EVERYTHING with no luck. I see there is the same problem with the VX550...is there a recall on this one...


The VX series NuTone's have had some problems but NuTone is taking care of them as long as it is under warranty. You can contact NuTone at 1-888-336-6151 or whoever you purchased the unit from and you will most likely get a new unit. There are no parts available for the VX units so whenever there is a problem NuTone has been sending new units out.

Vx550 issues


Heven't fixed it yet, but I've pulled the motor to see what the specific issue is. As soon as I have the problem isolated and a solution, if possible, I'll post it here. I will have to contact Nutone Monday and see what they will do. If nothing, I'll sort it myself.
