Sounds like your controll relay went bad in the main unit its an easy repair but i would still have a reputable vacuum shop do it.

Nutone cv353 unable to stop


You may have a stuck relay or one of your access port switches may be bad. According to the owners manual: "A complete check of all Wall Inlet and Power Unit low voltage control lead connections (external yellow leads). Turn system off by removing fuse or tripping circuit breaker at
house fuse box."

CV-353 will only go off by unplugging. Electrical disconnected from ports to unit. Checked push pins on all ports and they are moving in and out.

Vacuum won't shut off


the relay is most likely the problem, they get burnt and the contacts stay together leaving the unit on. Try www.builtinvacuum.com for parts.

NuTone Central vac won't turn off


If the central vacuum tank will not turn OFF even with the switch in the “OFF” position, then the low-voltage wires should be disconnected from the tank. If the tank continues to run and still will not turn off, then most likely the relay inside is defective (but it could be a defective and/or shorted ON/OFF switch). If with the low-voltage wires disconnected the tank is able to then be turned off with the switch, then there is a short in the low-voltage wires or a hose is plugged into an inlet somewhere. ~ TTURAMBAR

Your relay is bad. This is very easy to change out yourself. There are several websites that sell this part online. Some websites offer free tech support.

Nu-tone 475 keeps running even without hose plugged in.


If the central vacuum tank will not turn OFF even with the switch in the “OFF” position, then the low-voltage wires should be disconnected from the tank. Once this is done, if the tank continues to run and cannot be turned off with the switch, then most likely the relay inside is defective and needs to be replaced (but it could be a defective and/or shorted ON/OFF switch). If with the low-voltage wires disconnected at the vacuum tank, it can be turned off with the internal switch, then either there is a short in the low-voltage wires, or else there is a hose still plugged into an inlet somewhere. ~ TTURAMBAR

CENTRAL VACUUM SYSTEM


Disconnect the inlet piping from the unit and check the suction there. Be sure that the utility inlet on the unit is closed. If you have good suction, you have an open/broken pipe somewhere, or possible an inlet valve or vacpan that is not sealing when closed. The easiest way to find it would be to install your tubing back into the inlet of the unit, turn the unit on, and walk around the house listening for air leaks. Good Luck!!
