Change the bag when it is full.
After a couple months, use a cleaning cloth and run it through each vacuum point.
Not much else to do.

My airvac av2500 powerhead does not work. I bought a replacement and the replacement doesn't work either.


Test the wiring in your hose to insure the power head is getting the proper voltage.

Hi! My central vacuum has worked perfectly until just a couple months ago. I went to plug the vacuum in and it didn't automatically start the suction. When I clicked the switch to the right on the...


It sounds like you may have a bad hose. Plug the hose into the wall but rotate it 90 degrees from the normal position. This will bypass the switch on the hose. If you look at the wall end of your hose, you will see a metal band around it. That metal band is split into two sections. You are trying to plug in the hose so that the separation of the two pieces of metal is not lining up at the top of your inlet. If your vacuum turns on then you have a bad hose. It is possible that you have a bad switch in the hose, but it is more likely that you have a bad hose.

If your vacuum does not turn on, then you may have a break in your low voltage wire somewhere. You can check to make sure it didn't get disconnected at the unit. If the wire is connected then try to cross the low voltage wire from the relay at the unit with a small screw driver. If the unit does not turn on you have a bad relay.

If it is the relay, AirVac does not provide them. You would need to consider buying a new unit.

No suction from wall outlet. Power to powerhead. Breaker has not been tripped. Manual mode works on cannister in garage. AirVac VM458.


I had the same exact problem and it took about 4 months to find out the problem. I had a paper clip stuck to one of the orifice in the hall way of my house and that is what I had experienced. The other thing is to check the entire tube system because maybe a mouse or rat has chewed into it. It has all to do with the electrical wire throughout the system. Good Luck

I just inherited an AirVac AV400. It won't turn on. What do I try? GrampaBigJohn


there is a reset button on it some where near the power switch so I would look for it as it most likely is that simple. good luck!

AirVac ZX6000 won't turn off!


There is a relay board inside your unit which is most likely bad. If you have the make and model, you can contact me and I can order the board for you(pending your mechanical abilities). If not, contact your local central vacuum installation company. www.thevacdudes.com

Vac running and won't shut off


The first thing I would do is to disconnect the low voltage wires from the unit. Does the unit continue to run? If so, it's probably an internal relay sticking in the unit. You can fix this yourself is you are handy, but I suggest calling your local dealer if you have any doubt. If the unit doesn't continue running, than you most likely have a short in low voltage wiring in your house. Check your inlet valves first by removing the screws and looking behind the faceplates. If you have inlets that are powered with 110v for you power nozzle (Supervalves, or Electravalves), be very careful as you could be exposed to 110vac. Check your vacpans too, if you have any. The wires should not be touching anywhere. If the two wires touch, the machine should come on. Good Luck!!
