Question about M&S Systems AirVac AVP1200 Platinum Series Central Vac - 12,000 sq ft Bagged Central System Vacuum

Open Question

Have an Air Vac 525 with very low vacuum pressure. Cleaned filter but no change. The mechanism appears to be coming on as the motor can be heard in the garage as usual. Any thoughts?

My craftsman vaccum won't **** very well. The filter is not the problem and the hoses are not clogged. On the motor itself there is very little air being sucked in, however it blows out air quite well. Can...


The mini has a plastic blade, it sounds like it is loose on the shaft. The air you feel coming out is vacuum air and motor cooling air. It will feel like there is a lot of air even if you block the hose, because that's motor cooling air. The plastic blade might need replaced.

Electrolux Model 2100 vacuum won't work


hi from uk may i suggest you remove cover and the new dust collection bag then if you look in the bag compartment there is a gauze filter fitted usually grey in colour ? at opposite end of compartment where bag connects this gauze filter is the outlet from bag compartment that the air exhales when vac is operating ie as vac **** up dust into bag the bag has microscopic holes that allow sucked up air and dust to collect but keeps dust from passing into bag chamber but allows air to escape thro holes and so enter bag chamber then escapes via the gauze filter to outside of vac hope you follow this ?? now if this filter is blocked/never been cleaned/changed ? then the symptoms of indicator bag full light will come on you can remove and wash filter if it is gauze typ? dry and refit then try vacuuming ? or replace filter they are not expensive usually in pack of 3 in uk DO NOT RUN VAC WITHOUT THIS FILTER FITTED ! or you will have some dust in the room ? hope this helps?

The vaccuum overheats after about 10 min. i have cleaned out all vissable particals , is it the brushes? this is the electralux 1521 model


Have you changed the bag and filter ?
This usually happens when the motor dosen't get enough air over the motor to keep it cool. Try dropping a coin thru the hose and see if it comes out the other end. If it dosen't, try pushing a broom handle thru the hose to move the blockage. NEVER use a coat hanger or anything that could damage the hose and there are electrical wires that run thru it. If you still have the problem, take your vac to the Aerus/Electrolux store.

I was using the shopvac and it just quit. (changed filter, still


The brushes that make contact with the motor's armature need to be cleaned. If you get into the motor and find that the armature is scored or burnt then you'll have to replace the motor.

When running, metal parts are banging around. Cleaned filter but nothing in there. Can it be the weights in the bag?


Do not run the vac again. If the banging is coming from the top of canister portion, you likely have a blown top bushing or lower bearing or both in the motor itself.. Either way the motor can usually be rebuilt by an experienced tech, or if you are very mechanically inclined, otherwise a new motor will be required. You should determine the cause in case you have a damaged filter

Kenmore upright vac model 33922 - good suction but developed loud whining noise after accidentally vacuuming room without bag. Added bag and changed both filters. Still makes noise. How can I stop noise?


The bag is the first stage in your filtration. Most times what you did will draw fine dust right through the filters and into the motor itself, affecting the bearings and clogging the motor fans, throwing them off balance.
The fact that there is a new noise would seem to indicate bearing problems which will only worsen unless the vac motor is dismantled, fans cleaned and bearings either replaced or cleaned and repacked.

It's clogged!
Many so-called "environmentally friendly" vacuum cleaners have multiple stage filters; the usual configuration is a standard filter followed by a HEPA filter or equivalent. Standard filters can be a paper bag or a bagless, removable container.
From time to time, the secondary filter will get clogged, so it doesn't matter whether you change the bag or empty the container, performance will not improve.
If you have access to compressed air, try removing the secondary filter and blowing it clean with a high pressure air nozzle. If that doesn't work, check the hose to make sure it's clear. If you are using a rug beater attachment, make sure it has not clogged at its inlet.

Vacuuming Liquids
1. When picking up small amounts of liquid
the filter may be left in place.
2. When picking up large amounts of liquid
we recommend that the filter be
removed. If the filter is not removed, it
will become saturated and misting
may appear in the exhaust.
3. After using the vac to pick up liquids,
the filter must be dried to reduce the
risk of possible mildew and damage to
the filter.
4. When the liquid in the drum reaches a
predetermined level, the float mechanism
will rise automatically to cut off
airflow. When this happens, turn off
the vac, unplug the power cord, and
empty the drum. You will know that the
float has risen because vac airflow
ceases and the motor noise will
become higher in pitch, due to
increased motor speed.
IMPORTANT: To reduce the risk of damage
to the vac do not run motor with float
in raised position
