Between the two brands... stay away from the nutone. If you can get it, the Beam, Eureka, or even the Electrolux and Kenmore(sears) would still be better. The warranty would be better on the Beam and Eureka (7 or 10 and one model is even 15 years)

Good luck on your purchase.

Myu easy flow central vacuum wi not shut off


This could be because of 2 things....

first, the on/off switch may have been accidentally hit and is forcing the machine to stay on at all times.

Second, the relay in the unit may be defective and stuck in the on position. Less than 5 years should be under warranty. The easy way to tell if it is this problem tho is to unplug one of the low voltage wires from the side of the unit. These are usually located near the power cord going into the machine. If the machine stays running it is the Relay. However if the machine shuts off, the wiring in the vac system may be crossed out somewhere causing the machine to stay on.

My central vaccum just stop working last night. It does not turn on at all.


I've gone through 3 vx475 vac in the past 7 yrs. Last one was sent to me in Apr 2010. Just yesterday, once again, my vac just quit. Green power light is on but no other sign of anything. Had a burning smell when vac quit, like motor just fried. Called Nutone again and they can't imagine whats going on but will send out another vac free and was told to throw out old one. They said dust may get into the motor and cause it to quit. These vacs aren't cheap, can't imagine that its so simple to just call up and have a brand new one sent to me. I've asked if they are rebuilt units and was told no. So my advise to you, if you haven't already, is to simply call them up w/model and serial # and they shouldn't give you any prob. good luck.

No suction


Use the guide at builtinvacuum.com/flowchrt.html to find the issue and solution. Most likely you need to test it without any filter and be sure the bottom of the unit is attached :) To get access to the motors you need to unbolt the very top sides.

Nutone CV353 does not shut off, think it is the relay board


You probably have a stuck relay. You can try tapping with medium force next to where the low voltage wires are attached to the unit using the handle end of a hammer. Even if this works it's time to replace the circuit board. Take the unit to a local vacuum repair center for service.

Central vac will not turn off


You have a defective internal relay on the vac. Check for warranty coverage as this is a common occurrence on these big box store units.
If beyond warranty the relay should be a straight forward unit, miniature circuit board type plug in device. Find a Broan Nutone service center or take to vac pro shop for parts.

Easy Flo Central vacuum will still work at about


Yes you can easily test for a clog, and a crack for that matter.

to test for a clog push a dry garden hose through the entire system until it comes out at the other end.

to test for a crack, Disconnect the pipe that comes from the house to the central vac unit. Turn on the unit and put your hand over the opening directly at the central vac unit.(Using the utility inlet at the unit will not accomplish the same thing.)
  • Step 2 If your suction is good, then reconnect the tubing and turn on the switch at the unit. If there is no switch, plug your central vacuum hose into one of your inlets to start the system. Then have someone completely seal the hose with their hand. While the unit is running go to the exhaust. With everything closed you should feel almost nothing coming from the exhaust. If you feel very little exhaust, then you do not have a leak

    Nutone cv353 central vac blew up


    My guess would be that the motor is done. Impossible to diagnose for sure without seeing it of course. If you were happy with the unit before the trouble, a replacement motor will probably run $250-$300. If you are interested in a new unit, shop around. There are definitely better designed and more powerful units out there, although some of them can cost quite a bit more than $300. Good Luck!!
