Question about Electrolux Vacuums
I just bought a house with an Electrolux 1590 Central Vac. Never had one before. I tried it with the hose inserted into the wall and the plug on the hose connected to an outlet but it didn't work. I had it inspected by a service tech and he advised that it was the motor. I replaced the motor today and still cannot get the unit to turn on. I've tried all three outlets in the house but still nothing. I've crossed the low voltage wires on the inlet to the vac to see if this would start the motor and it does. Would this rule out the relay board? Does this point to the wiring in the house? Could it be the hose itself? Any recommendations on further checks would be appreciated.

No it is very simple. You will probably need a pair of pliers, wire cutters and maybe some wire nuts. Remove the nuts that hold the motor down (some have springs that hold them down). Pull out the old motor, there will be three wires that go to it, (2) power and (1) Ground. Most likely you'll have to cut those and splice in the new motors wires with some wire nuts. Then simply reattach the motor the way you removed it and that's it. Good luck!
