SOURCE: Electrolux Central Vacuum won't turn off

There is a relay board on the unit (where the dirt goes) There are two small wires that connect and usually a switch near by. This switch has an Auto and Manual setting. If set to manual the unit will run all the time or until set back to Auto. If it is set to Auto and is still running, unplig the two small wires. They are sometimes on screw terminals behind a round plactic cover. It does not matter which terminal the wires go back on just one on each.

If the unit turns off the problem is in the wire running to each valve or a paper clip is shorting across the pins of a wall outlet. (something like this).

If the unit does not turn off once the wires are removed, the relay in the unit is stuck closed and will need to be replaced. Time to call a pro unless you have good electrical skills.

Hope this helps!

Nutone cv750 problem


I doubt that's an electrical breaker - because it wouldn't take 10 minutes to flip, it would happen almost immediately. It must be the heat breaker. There are two reasons your vacuum system could be overheating and tripping that breaker. Either you need to replace the filter - if it's partially clogged then the motor may have to work too hard to get suction and cause it to overheat. I'd suggest checking the filter first, because that's the easy fix. If it's not the filter, then your motor is going out. You'll want to replace that. Check the filter, and let me know. I'll see if I can find a place to order a new motor for it.

It seems stopped up. Picked up pieces of styrofoam


If the Rainbow kept running but the power nozzle stopped, it could be the Circuit Breaker PN2E PN2 that tripped. Try resetting to see if that fixes problem.
If the Rainbow stopped running, the auto reset could have tripped. Wait about an hour to see if it resets.

Trips


The switch could be bad. Make sure there are no clogs anywhere that could be causing it to overheat. Try to bypass the switch and run it just long enough to see if you can go longer than the normal 5 min. you're getting. If you can then replace the trip switch. Do not continue to use the machine without the trip switch operating properly or it could catch on fire.

Central vacuum with new motor shuts off and throws switch


Your mini breaker is probably bad if its a new motor. Its found on the relay board and they can weaken over time, especially if you had a bad motor before that tripped it a lot.

The breaker on the vacuum trips after about 3 seconds on. The canister was extremely full and started to smell like burnt wood, we fully cleaned out the unit. Now when the vacuum is turned on, the motor...


This sounds indicative of a worn set of carbon brushes on a dieing motor for a central vac. the armature is ,likely damaged causing teh breaker to blow. Please post back with more details as to make and model. Do not atempt to run the vac

Vacuum working perfectly and everything stopped. Went to the utility room and found a plastic bag on top of the equipment. Tried the reset button, etc. nothing works.


sounds like a bad relay in the tank just a simple repair but should be done by a vacuum tech or electrician. Could be a motor is nothing is starting at all, but not as likely.

Nutone cv353 central vac blew up


My guess would be that the motor is done. Impossible to diagnose for sure without seeing it of course. If you were happy with the unit before the trouble, a replacement motor will probably run $250-$300. If you are interested in a new unit, shop around. There are definitely better designed and more powerful units out there, although some of them can cost quite a bit more than $300. Good Luck!!
