I have a Hayden Supervac Superior central vac system with is about 5 years old. Never had a problem with it. I can't find the book for it or the model number(not on front of wall tank). When I put the hose in the wall it comes on but then goes off and keeps cycling like that. It never makes it fully on. Just kind of cycles on and then off.

First you will want to remove the light cover. this can be done by pusing as you look at the front of the powerbrush on both the left and right side of the head. There you will find the lightbulb and 2 screws to remove. Remove both of the screws and turn over to pry with a screwdriver at both the sides of the powerbrush to remove the top cover.
Once you have the lens cover off you will also see in the plastic the belt change instructions.
When you want to put the top cover back on, it will act much like a hinge, hook it on to the front of the head where the brush is, and snap it back into place at the back.
The hose has fuseable link inside, generally a 3-7 amp. It is at the wall end underneath the hose cuff. Easy to replace as it crimps in line. If you have a meter you can also test the detachable hose to wall cord for continuity, then check the hose to handle as well. You can also detach the hose to wall cord from the hose, and plug your power head directly into that cord,, then into the wall thereby eliminating the hose itself. Hayden makes a serviceable hose. If damaged or the fuse blown it can be serviced by a good tech. If the fuse is blown you need to clean and inspect the power head as this may be the cause
Stop using the vac. Remove the filter and clean thoroughly, inspecting for damage. If the vac is spiting out bits off fuzz or lint it may need the motor cleaned and serviced as dirt has leaked past the filter. If it is spewing black, not gray this is carbon dust from the motor brushes. If the noise is scratchy or growling this is a sign of a motor problem as well. The muffler unless it is a hepa filter/muffler combination is NOT designed to catch dust. Exhaust dust is a sign of dust leaking through the motor which indicates future moor problems. HINT, if the guy who installed the muffler didn't secure it right he is probably not a good choice as a service tech either. The muffler is normally clamped or secured in place with a small screw so it can be removed in the event of service.
Define hose works or doesn't, no suction, hose will not activate vac , etc. Test the vac by shorting across the low voltage terminals where they enter the machine. If the vac works here your problem is in the internal wiring, at the valve or the hose to wall connection. If the vac will not run, you will need to check the motor for continuity across the motor leads.
one of two problems cause this. first is a short in the wires that turn it on, the small wires going to the side of the body unplug one of them to see if thats the problem
second is a stuck relay inside the top cofer of the main body
