This is typical of a motor going bad. As it heats up it shuts down all by itself, no sensors other than the mini breaker. The intervals will get shorter and maybe the minibreaker will pop. Your options are to replace the motor or the motor brushes if the motor is not past 800 hours of use. Your model is older so replacing the motor will be your best bet. It is not that difficult. The motor and instructions are available here builtinvacuum.com/help/nutone.html.

I would try emptying it out and also cleaning any filters you have access to at the same time. It is usually a sensor for heat that stops the machine and if it is getting full or has plugged filters it will get hot fast cool down and then it will do it all again . Hope this helps you. Good luck

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.

Nutone central vac shuts down after a few minutes of use


this is a very common problem.

If the unit is less than 5 years old and you have your bill of sale it will be covered by warranty. Although one of my customers said that there is a recall on the motor in this unit. That is totally unverified. However, if it is still under warranty, contacting broan/nutone will give you the closest warranty depot, or they may just deal with you directly.

I do recommend that both the motor and the PC board inside be changed.

Good luck,
Mark

The motor is not working all the time. Sometimes takes an hour or so before it kicks in. I unplug the unit and plug back in along with re-set button but does not seem to matter


that is an older unit I am guessing and I would suspect that it is the heat sensor that is shutting it off as it is probably shot. Can you tell me the model and approx. year it was made/purchased. thanks

Broken Nutone central vacuum unit


most of those systems are plumbed with PVC, but some do use flex throughout the home...
If yours is PVC, visit your nutone dealer and get a new outlet/elbow.
Trim the old elbow off with a drywall saw or other small saw (if you have a sawsall, that is fine) and glue the new one in
if it is flex tubing, it's easier; the elbow threads on. just be sure to hold the tubing so it doesn't drop down,

Problems with 353 nutone


if its an older unit or it got heavy use it could be the motor they tend to sputter as there going out, as it rotates the electricity hits a burnt spot inside the motor and shuts itself off can you turn it on manually? they usually put a swithc on the tank itself if the problem doesnt occur when you switch it then it could be the hose itself normally they control the off/on use a meter to check the continuity beteen the two copper plates that are on the end of the hose ( the wall end )

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
