If the top comes off, it will be by the motor and exhaust. Just replace it with the new one, make sure you don't mix up any wires. Also unplug it from the AC first.

It's a known problem. I bought my vx550 last year in July and it stopped working this year in May. On for 5 minutes, shut down, can't run for a few hours, runs for another five minutes, etc. I called the Nutone customer service department and they exchanged the unit for a new one, cross shipped, via UPS. Mine was still under warranty though. It has to do with some defective thermostat or controller in the electronics of the vacuum.

Good luck

SOURCE: my nutone vacuum system won't shut off when I pull

The relay that turns the machine off from any of the several places where you connect, is probably stuck.

The relay is operated by low voltage. When you connect your hose, you comlete the low voltage circuit and energize the 110 volt system, and the machine comes on. When you pull the hose out, the relay is suppose to release.

those are my thoughts

I hope this is of value to you.

SOURCE: nutone vx550c central vacuum

I finally solved the mystery. I adjusted the variable air intake relief valve (install just before unit-open in the event of a clogg to prevent motor burnout) By watching the valve when unit is being used, you can see that the system needs more air to operate, otherwise it drives up the amperage draw on the breaker and trips it. Just set the adjustable spring loaded valve so it can actuate up and down during normal use (you should hear air all of the time from the valve). Picture a big vac motor pulling air through a straw. It doesnt like it and needs more air while you are vacuuming. Happy as heck to fix this damn thing:)

My Broan-NuTone central vac shuts off after I am vacuuming for a couple of minutes. I turn it off for about 10 minutes and start vacuuming again and it keeps shutting off. What is wrong with it? I...


Some of these units have had trouble with the motors and this is what causes them to shut off. NuTone has been pretty good about replacing them under warranty. 1-888-336-6151.

Nutone Model CV353; runs for several minutes and then shuts off. After a couple of hours I can turn on again, but again only last a couple of minutes. Possible relay problem?


Check the filter. If it's dirty, thoroughly rinse it in cool water, then let it thoroughly dry before using. If you don't have an extra filter to use during this time, you should get one.
It could also be a clogged hose or pipe. These would cause the motor to overheat, thus shutting off. Check hose at end for suction. If weak or nonexistent, detach hose and try dropping a penny or dime, or marble, down the hose. If it comes out the end, the hose is probably clear. If this is the case, you need to check other outlets.

Nutone central vac shuts down after a few minutes of use


this is a very common problem.

If the unit is less than 5 years old and you have your bill of sale it will be covered by warranty. Although one of my customers said that there is a recall on the motor in this unit. That is totally unverified. However, if it is still under warranty, contacting broan/nutone will give you the closest warranty depot, or they may just deal with you directly.

I do recommend that both the motor and the PC board inside be changed.

Good luck,
Mark

Vaccum runs for 2 or 3 minutes then shuts off. Can not restart it for several hours. We have tried EVERYTHING with no luck. I see there is the same problem with the VX550...is there a recall on this one...


The VX series NuTone's have had some problems but NuTone is taking care of them as long as it is under warranty. You can contact NuTone at 1-888-336-6151 or whoever you purchased the unit from and you will most likely get a new unit. There are no parts available for the VX units so whenever there is a problem NuTone has been sending new units out.

Vx550 issues


Heven't fixed it yet, but I've pulled the motor to see what the specific issue is. As soon as I have the problem isolated and a solution, if possible, I'll post it here. I will have to contact Nutone Monday and see what they will do. If nothing, I'll sort it myself.

My nutone cv556 wont shut off


It sounds like the relay is bad. This website has a pretty good trouble shooting page.
