Question about Easy Flo EF1400 Central System Vacuum
My easy flo built in vacuum system wont turn on when the hose is plugged into the wall outlets, yet the main canister in garage will turn on manually. Any idea what is wrong and how to fix it ?
If there is a switch on your hose, it may be broken.
Your system powers on from the inlets via two low voltage wires that run from the inlets to the switch/relay at the power unit. Each inlet has 2 spring loaded pins attached to the low voltage wires. In the photo below you should see these pins at the bottom of the opening, just above the door hinge. The receptacle at the top of the inlet in this photo supplies 110 volts to power your power nozzle. Not all inlets have this option, but if yours does, exercise extreme caution. Your hose must have a completely metal end or if it is a plastic end, it must have a metal band in order to short the 2 low voltage wires together to trigger the switch.
You can manually short the two low voltage pins together by using a metal pipe or needle nose pliers, just touch both pins at the same time. CAUTION: stay away from the 110 volt receptacle if present.
If your system powers on with this manual method then it would seem that the problem is in your hose.
If your system does not power on; your low voltage wires may be disconnected from the power unit or disconnected somewhere else . It's also possible that you have a bad circuit/controller board in the power unit.
