Question about Broan-NuTone VX475 Bagged Central System Vacuum

1 Answer

Vx550 issues Like most here, ours shuts down after a few minutes use. Ichecked everything and found the thermal protection was shutting it down. I then decided to check online to see if this was a usual problem, it seems that it is. I guess a call to nu-tone is warranted. i wonder if they will ship a new unit to western Canada.

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.

Why does my Vacuum shut off!


Has this happened numerous times? If so, and the filters (all filters) are thoroughly cleaned then its possible the thermal protection circuit could be worn out in the motor. If not, it could be an assortment of other issues. Could you please provide more info?

My problem/// cleaner turns on for a around ten (10) seconds and then shuts off wait a few minutes and it will turn on but goes off again at ten (10) seconds?????


These units have a automatic resetting thermal fuse near the motor to help to protect it from burning up by running too hot. This will need to be inspected and tested to see if it's holding it's proper temps., if not it will have to be replaced. There should also be an inspection of the machine to detect what was causing the reset to shut down that quickly, so that can be repaired as well.

My Hoover U6458-900 shuts off after a few minutes of vacuuming. I let it set a few minutes and it will start up again.


It sounds as if the motor has overheated at some point, and damaged the thermal protector fuse in the motor compartment. Clean the filters thoroughly, change the bag, and try to operate it. If it still shuts down, the thermal protector will need replacement. ( Part # 47534032 )

Is it possible to overheat the motor?


This can happen , normally if the filters are kept clean and replaced now and again the motor should last quite a few years if it does overheat then it has a thermal cut off that resets after it cools down ,,Hope this is of some help

Hoove Cyclonic Bagless vacuum shuts off after only a few minutes


The motor has a protective overload cutout device to stop it from over heating - this can be caused by a blockage of some sort in the hose or brushroll compartment or blocked filters.
After checking the above and it still cuts out, take it back under gurantee

Nutone central vac vx550


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

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Not knowing the brand name or model number of the vacuum, some vacuums have a thermal switch or thermal shut off switch to protect the motor and once the motor gets hot the vacuum will shut off, or the vacuum could very well be clogged and the air is not getting through to the motor to keep it cool. Please check your owner’s manual under the trouble shooting section or cal the factory / manufacturer to see if the can send you an owner’s manual (OM) or you can download the OM from the manufacturer’s website. Next time include the brand name and model #. ? 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.
