Question about Easy Flo EF1400 Central System Vacuum

Central Vac will not turn on.

Kenmore S107.34726 central vac...

After vacuuming my two bedrooms on the top floor of my house and turning the unit off using the switch on the portable hose. I later changed attachments to vacuum our hardwood floor, only to find out nothing was working. I went down to the canister noticed the power indicator light was not on. Pushed the power button, nothing. Checked the fuse panel, it was good. unplugged the canister and plugged it back in, green light came on. Plugged in hose attachment to the central vac plug switched on noticed the power light went out
on the Central vac canister.\ about 20 sec after switching the power switch on.

Took the Canister top off, no smells, no carbon, fuse is still good.

Any Ideas ????

Thanx

These problems are nearly exclusively caused by a bad circut board and replacing it is the fix. Bad boards can cause many different effects so its nearly impossible to be sure. The 9v signal wire is not enough to short out an entire unit so it is unlikely the hose. If it is a direct connect system and you are pulling power from the 110 somehow that would cause main unit problems but that is unlikely at best. Sounds like a failed board to me.

Best of Luck

We just moved in - the house is about 9 years old. I have a Eureka Mega Boss central vac - looks like model # is CV20220. 12.4 amps, 120 volts. Can't figure out what type of bags I need. Can you...


Well, for this unit you will need any of the following bags,

Eureka genuine Part# 90610
Eureka replacement (Central vac bag)
another genuine bag style called CV-1, and/or CV-2
Kenmore Central vac bags

Most of the bags there are available at your local vacuum shop, and sometimes even Sears. The Kenmore central vac bag is, can and will fit your Eureka Mega Boss. Prices range on these bags anywhere from $12-$20 for packages of 3. Generally you will replace a bag once every 3-4 months.

Good luck,
Mark

No suction


Use the guide at builtinvacuum.com/flowchrt.html to find the issue and solution. Most likely you need to test it without any filter and be sure the bottom of the unit is attached :) To get access to the motors you need to unbolt the very top sides.

Central vac will not turn off


You have a defective internal relay on the vac. Check for warranty coverage as this is a common occurrence on these big box store units.
If beyond warranty the relay should be a straight forward unit, miniature circuit board type plug in device. Find a Broan Nutone service center or take to vac pro shop for parts.

NuTone CV353 Central Vac does not start when hose is plugged into


Try to plug the hose in sideways. So the top of the hose is rotated 90 degrees. If the unit turns on then there is something wrong with the hose. It might be a short or it could be a bad switch on the handle. If the unit still wont turn on I would think that maybe the low voltage wire got disconnected from the unit or there is a break in the low voltage wire somewhere along the way. Let me know if you plugging the hose in sideways works.

De clogging pipes


You can try these as long as you have some airflow. http://builtinvacuum.com/tornado-power/ If you have no suction or airflow from one particular inlet, you can reverse the main unit by hooking the inlet piping to the exhaust of the unit. Tape all other inlets closed, and turn the unit on. This should blow the clog out through the inlet door. (be prepared for a some mess with newspaper or something else to protect your floor in front of the inlet) If you still can't unclog it, borrow a portable canister vacuum or a shop vac and try to **** the clog from the inlet while you blow from the other end with your central unit. Good Luck!!

Central Vac does not shut off


Sounds like the relay that is in the central vac unit is stuck to the ON position. When you plug it back in..does it start right up ? If so.. You should be able to disconnect all the receptacle feeds to the central vac unit at the central vac unit to determine which one ( if any) is calling for the vac to stay on.. if none are.. then it is internal to the vac and may be a stuck relay... Hope that gives you some ideas to check...

Kenmore central Vac - where to connect low voltage wires?


Mosy central vacs have 2 spades close together that stick out on the side, usually where the circuit breaker and auto/manual switch is. This is where you plug the low voltage wires into.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The Beam Central Vac may have more than a one year factory warranty and it sounds to me that you may have a bad relay switch the Central Vac, if you do it should be covered under the factory warranty. Otherwise, you may have a bad supervalves or a wire came loose, if the hose switch turns on the power nozzle then it may be a bad supervalve or a bad relay and to contact the installer or the manufacturer of Beam. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
