Motor to replace or rebuild:

Depending if your motor just started to get noisy, you can take it to a private vacuum repair shop and most rebuild for around $80 to $100.00. Usually they replace top/bottom bearing and the armature carbon brushes.

If it's loud and vibrating and probably sparking. Do not bother to rebuild, the armature is now probably damaged and not worth the new parts.

Replacing the motor is pretty basic and usually saves you about $150.00. They're pretty simple to release out of the unit and are pretty simple to remove and reinstall.

To find out your replacement motor number you will need to find the stamped model number on the motor itselt. It is a 6-8 digit number. That is the Ametek Motor Model number. Ametek is used in pretty well all central vacuum systems. Motors range from $99 to $239.00

My main power breaker for the house, shuts off after I have used the Electrolux Centralux vac for a short period of time - why does this happen?


This is usually an indication that the motor is going bad. Motors in central vacuum systems are very easy to replace. Most motors can be purchased online.

Model 1580 central vac electrolua stopped burning smell


If the smell is like burning metal and very strong, the motor is bad and needs replaced.
The circuit board inside could also have shorted and burned out. You can check the motor by removing the low voltage wiring from the side of the vacuum and using long-nosed pliers. Open the pliers and slip a point into each terminal. The motor should come on if it's still good. If it does run, the problem is with the relay board.
Although you can get either motor or board and replace them yourself, if you let the tech at an authorized Aerus Electrolux store do it, there's a one year warranty on the part/s and labor.
The nearest store can be found using the following link.

My central vac unit does not turn off even when hose is disconnected. I have to unplug the motor unit in the garage to shut it off. What do you think the problem is? It is a 7 year old Electrolux


Possibly the power module. Or a short in the wiring. Take it to the local Aerus Electrolux store and have it checked by a service tech to be sure. The pm is a lot less expensive to replace than a whole cv.

It sounds like you have a bad motor. Motors can be replaced easily. You will need to know the model number. There are several companies online that sell replacement motors.

Low suction


1) Have you checked the filter? If it is clogged your suction will be low. Also, you could have a pipe loose where you can't see. Make sure that you can get a coin to go all the way through the hose. make sure the suction motor ( the unit ) is coming on.

2) Call the repair man.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It sounds to me like you have a bad replay switch on the inside of the Electrolux Central Vacuum and it needs replacing. They are not too bad as per the cost if you are mechanically able but B4 you attempt to do that I would have it checked by a local vacuum cleaner central vacuum service tech just in case. I will give you the website and the factory phone number for the Electrolux listed below. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Dust....dust....dust
Posted by Kitkatman on Jun 11, 2008
Hello,
I recently bought a house with an older Electrolux Central Vac system. I'm unfamiliar with them, so I'm not sure how to deal with this: I cleaned up some mortar dust with it, and noticed not too long after that when I went into the garage, there was a fog of dust. The hose from the unit is venting into the garage. Is this normal? I have since used it for everyday household cleaning and each time I go back to the garage to a cloud of dust. Is there anything I can do? Thanks


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It sounds to me that the unit you have may have to be vented outside as I am not familiar with this particular unit, or it could very well be that it is missing a filter or the filter you have inside already is shot and is in need of replacement or on some central vacs there are paper filter that go over the cloth type filter. Again, I am not familiar with this older unit but feel free to contact the Electrolux Factory or Manufacturer and give them the model # and the serial # for the unit and they will have a breakdown of if it should be vented and what type of filtration it should be using. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
