Tip

How to diagnose a clog in your Central Vac and how to remove it


Symptoms of a clog
Low Suction/No Suction
No suction at Inlet

Tools required
Wet/Dry Vac or vacuum with decent suction and a hose
Phillips Head Screw Driver
Metal Coat hanger (straightened out)
Flashlight

First things, first, make sure your canister is empty at the unit. I know, most people would have already checked this but I have been to a lot of client's homes and this was the issue. They were full or almost full. So just check it before you go to do anymore diagnosing. I suggest emptying it anyways, this way you can see what you clogged in your unit

Now if your machine has a utility valve on the unit turn on the manual over ride switch on and lift the utility valve and if you have suction your machine is fine, you have a clog. If you have no suction or poor suction
-Canister not attached properly
-Filter clogged
-There is a disconnect of pipe within your walls (I've seen it and it renders your system useless and is going to be expensive to repair the system)
-Your motor is going in your system (Your vacuum should sound like grinding metal and chances are it's throwing sparks and smells of burning electrical, turn the unit off immediately and unplug power cord) Your unit will need a new motor or you will need to replaced the whole unit. Sometimes can be cheaper to replace the unit.

So now back on track here, we are going to say the vacuum has great suction and is running smoothly.

Check your hose for clogs, easiest ways are to plug the hose into the utility valve and turn on the machine manually at the switch.
If you do not have a utility valve on your unit (this is where the other vacuum comes into play) plug your central vacuum hose on the end of the shop vac hose. Most hoses are standard and slip right on over the end of a shop vac's hose end (1 1/4 inch end). Turn on your shop vac and feel the suction at the end. It may not be as powerful as your CV but it should be comparable.

If the hose checks out to be free and clear we have a clogged system.

Now lets move to the inlets throwout your home, first we are going to plug our hose into the inlet that is nearest to the unit. If there is little or no suction we know there is an issue either in the distance between the nearest inlet or there is an open/broken valve.

Open/Broken valve (CV will not provide optimum suction with a open/broken valve)
-Plug the hose in and activate unit
-Check all inlets for proper seal, you will hear an annoying whistle or you will hear a gust of air from an improper inlet door closure. (Do this as quick as possible, if it is a clog you are putting strain on your motor, but if you vacuum on a regular basis chances are you know if there are whistling noises or missing pieces of an inlet. If you are missing an inlet door, replace the inlet. If all is checked out to be good, lets go back to unclogging again.

If there is suction at this inlet you know there is no clog between this inlet in the unit, try all inlets from nearest to farthest away. If you try your next inlet and have weak to no suction you found your point of a clog. This is where you will start to unclog your unit.

Take the hose end of your shop vac and insert it into your inlet. Turn the shop vac on and remove the hose quickly to create a seal and lose a seal. You should start to hear items moving through the line.

Now take your CV hose and insert it into this inlet, activate your CV and check suction if there is more suction, your slowly making progress.

Take a flashlight and look into the inlet to see if you can now see the obstruction. If you can, get your coat hanger out and go fishing. It may be easier to remove the inlet from the wall. Your basic valve is safe to remove. If you have a supervalve, do not remove, there is high current installed in the upper portion of the inlet for your power nozzle.

Repeat the Shop Vac suction and stop and the CV suction and stop until you clear your items.

This is going to take a few minutes of tugging between two vacuums. Eventually it will free if it went in, it has to come out. At the end of the day your basically playing tug of war between your Shop Vac and CV. But if all goes to plan, the clog will end up in your shop vac or in your CV unit.

Good Luck!

Hi, I have a Maximus 7015 and it doesn't work on any mode except on its turbo boost and with very poor suction. any idea? tks


Hi is this an upright or vac or a cylinder pull along vacuum cleaner. Either way have you checked the pipes which the longs 1 can be done using a broom stick pushing it down and clearing anything that is stuck in there. Please let me know what type the vacuum is so I can have a look at the picture of it on the web so I can help you out with your problem, also let me know the exact make and model of this vacuum makes it easier for me to find the correct image of your vacuum.

Poor suction in system - I have used shop vac to suction all three receptacles. Have checked bag and cleaned everything. Still poor suction. I have one receptacle in garage that works perfectly. Must...


Have you checked the hose for clogs or leaks. Clogged and leaky hoses are an area of concern with any central vac. Unless you hose has a hose sock, then wear and tear from constant rubbing on floors and other surfaces will result in holes and cracks. Pulling the hose can also result in leaks where the hose attaches to the handle and intake connector.
Mix some dish soap with water.
Use shop vac to blow air through hose, with other end capped or "clogged".
Apply soap solution to each end of hose.
If bubbles form, this indicates leakage. Hose will need to be replaced.

The vacuum does not operate normally, there is no suction, where can I get it service. We live in Toronto, it was purchased this fall.


If there's no suction, you should first check the User Manual for how to clear blockages (this is the most common suction-loss problem). If you're certain there are no blockages, the machine is still within its warranty period so you should return it to the place where you bought it.

Where can I buy a replacement battery?


I found a good deal on ebay. Didn't want to pay Dyson's battery price.
I love my Dyson handvac. I'm very happy to have it back again! The new battery solved the problem.

Want to rmove sludge,organics from pod wihout rmoing the water


You may need to develop a centrifuge in line with your intake to throw off water, or a screened water take up which will drain back to your source, but it must be sealed while running.
Central vacs have an optional water pickup device that works in line for spills . I do not like these but the concept could help your scenario. The idea is that there is a short hose, then an inline pail with a drop bucket for the water and a flow thru intake and out port to the actual vac piping so the air can continue thru to the vac without carrying the water into the wall. Gravity makes the water drop and allows the air to continue down the vac line, but the sealed pail ensures you have continuous suction.
In your case you would have to rig a shutoff float as well. Look up a company called VACUMAX on the INTERNET. I think they might be of help as well if they are still in business,around Elmira Ontario, Canada

EL7020A ELECTROLUX VAC SHUTS OFF AFTER 10 MIN


The symptoms you describe are typical of a vac that has a blockage (hence poor suction). It cuts out because it's over-heating. You need to check the hose, the filters and anywhere else where something may have got stuck. Blockages are often caused by things like paper clips, but can be caused by something as apparently harmless as a piece of paper which gets stuck and then debris builds up behind it and causes a log-jam.

Power head on epic 6500 does not work, is there a belt?


This is a bot of a blind guess, I don't know the model. But most power head cleaners I have worked on use the suction of the vaccuum to spin a turbo fan in the head (like blowing a child's windmill). The head not spinning is usually because there's not enough **** to spin the turbo fan. Check for:
Gummed up brush bearings (dirt or damp) making the brush harder to turn than it should be.
Poor suction caused by a blocked or partially blocked pipe.
An obstruction that is tactchin the beater or the turbo fan.
Blocked filters on the cleaner, reducing the **** and thereby not providing enough vaccuum to spin the beater.
