Question about Easy Flo EF1400 Central System Vacuum
I have the same problem. Our central vac is 1.5 yrs old. No power at source. Unplug the unit, plug it back in and the green light is on. Press the start button on the unit and the green light goes out. Nothing happens. Sears won't help. If this is a circuit board problem- where can I get a new circuit board?
Nothing looks/feels loose. The fuse on the circuit board looks intact. No smells.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

SOURCE: continuous running
Central vacs have relays in them, some stand alone, others mount on a circuit board. A stuck relay causes this type of problem. At the unit disconnect the low voltage wires, plug in your unit, does it still come on, if it does then you have a bad relay. If it doesn't then you have a problem somewhere in your low voltage wiring. One of the outlets, the wires may be touching or there is a staple casuing a short.

I will say Nutone was very helpful and completely resolved my issue by shipping a new unit and throwing in a few extras for my troubles. It's really refreshing to find a company that still values customer service. They've earned my business for future needs, not something i can say for most companies I've had problems with.

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

SOURCE: Central Vac will not turn on.
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
