Question about Broan-NuTone VX475 Bagged Central System Vacuum

1 Answer

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 too?

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.

    I am not sure about Canada but even without the receipt they will probably work with you. These units have been a hug problem and they are trying to take care of their customers.

    It took us 4 emails and finally an 8 page fax to them (Broan Nutone) before they would even respond to us. Now they are asking for the receipt, which we of course can not find, and Home Depot only keeps records for 18 months. If they knew this product was faulty they shoudl have issued a recall. Not impressed.

S7000 Just shuts off...


It's shutting down due to overheating to protect the motor ( and to prevent a fire! ). Running it and feeling around the motor to see if it's gotten hot would be the first thing I'd check. If the vacuum is new and giving you these problems, I'd return it to the store you bought it from and see what they'll do about it..there may have been a recall you aren't aware of.

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.

I bought it in may , I can honestly say , it is THE worst vaccum


There are several filters on bag-less vacuums that need to be cleaned. Dig out your owners manual or open the one below. See section 3 for filters and maintenance. If you are vacuuming a house bigger than about 1500 square feet, you should be cleaning the filters every other use. Personally, after using a bagless for a couple of months, I went back to my bagged vacuum.

Dyson vaccum runs for a few minutes then the power shuts off, I have heard there is a second filter, any ideas?


its over heating due to insufficient air passing through the motor and a heat sensor is cutting out the power due to a blockage maybe a filter or a cloged hose ,

Dyson shuts off in 5 minutes, then starts up 2-3 minutes laters w


I think there's a good chance of a clog that you haven't found. On the Dyson it's fairly easy to remove several covers that give you access. From the collection canister is a tube that runs toward the base. At the bottom of the tube you can remove a cover where you can check for a clog. Thats basically on the right side of the machine. From the rear side, very low and toward the middle right is a tab that you can push in and remove the tube that goes up into the flexible hose. Thats another good place for a clog to hide.

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

Hover mach 4 vaccum


usually caused from being plugged, so first find the plug and clear it. The motor has an automatic reset, should restart after about 30 minutes, if it continues to shut off, there is still a plug.
