Need the complete model #, 116.1260*****. I assume this is a built-in system? Yes you have to plug the hose into the wall outlet, and there usually is a switch on the hose handle to turn it on.

I installed the Hoover Wind Tunnel Central Vac in my new home. After connecting the wall outlets and successfully turning on the system from the hose control, I discovered there is lots of air flow t


I would recommend checking your wall outlets where the hose plugs in for any type of clog in the tubing. If the vacuum itself has great suction but when you go to the wall outlets that is probably something in the hose that is stuck. If cleared it will most likely have excellent suction throughout the entire system in the house.

Hoover Model SH80520 starts and won't quit


that's how it's supposed to operate, switch on turns the unit on. switch off turns the unit off. thier is a wire that is connected to the leads on each outlet that turns the unit on when the hose is inserted and the switch is in the off position.

How do i change from vacuum to blower?


In order to change from suction to blowing, insert the hose into the
exhaust port of the vacuum cleaner.
The vacuum cleaner should have two ports, one which is for suction,
the other is an exhaust port. The exhaust port can be used for blowing
when the hose is inserted into it.
After inserting the hose into the exhaust port just turn on the switch.

The Vaccum is not turning on when i plug the hose into the wall. The hoover system will turn on when i turn the switch on at the base and wont go off till i turn the switch off. But it will not come on...


you can test this out by taking a small metal spoon and with the bottom side of the spoon insert it into the vac outlet on the wall. you want to touch the two metal pins inside the vac outlet to test if the unit is the problem or the hose is the problem.

If the unit starts, the hose should have a 3 year warranty on it. I recommend you have your nearest beam dealer check it out.

If the unit does not start, it has a 7 or 10 year warranty, the circuitry should be replaced. Again have your nearest beam dealer check it out.

good luck

Our Easy-Flo built in vacuum system will not turn off, even when the hose is disconnected. We have to turn it off manually. Could it be a short in one of the wall outlets causing this?


Some models have an on/off switch on the power unit itself. This switch is used to turn your power unit on when you are right at the machine.
If there is no switch on the power unit, unplug your power unit from the wall socket, look for two low voltage wires coming out of the power unit. These two low voltage wires are usually either attached with terminals or are tied to two wires coming out with plastic screw on wire caps. Disconnect the 2 low voltage wires. Plug your power unit back in. If the power unit does not come back on then yes, the problem is most likely a short in the outlet wiring. If the power unit still comes on with the 2 low voltage wires unattached, then the problem is in the internal circuitry of the power unit, usually a relay or some units have a circuit board with relay, circuit breaker and other components on it. The relay or circuit board will have to be replaced.
It's a little difficult to check for a short if you have multiple outlets, but if you've recently done some renovations you might start checking in that area.

Central Vacuum works when power switch on canister is turned on, but will not turn on when connecting the hose.


DOes it not work on any of your wall inlet valves? If all wall inlets appear dead take a coin making a connection with both of the contacts inside the throat of the valve. If the vacuum turns on the problem is in your hose or the powerhead. If nothing happens plug in your hose and try wiggling the low voltage wires at the vacuum as you leave the hose plugged in with the swich on your in the "on" position ( if you have a switch) If still nothing unscrew all valve plates from wall leaving wires attatched. Inspect all connections for loose wires or wires that have come off terminals. .

NuTone CV353 Central Vac does not start when hose is plugged into


Try to plug the hose in sideways. So the top of the hose is rotated 90 degrees. If the unit turns on then there is something wrong with the hose. It might be a short or it could be a bad switch on the handle. If the unit still wont turn on I would think that maybe the low voltage wire got disconnected from the unit or there is a break in the low voltage wire somewhere along the way. Let me know if you plugging the hose in sideways works.

Kenmore canister model 116.25512 won't start


Sounds like you have a switch problem. Some of the Sears models also have a relay in them, which could be bad. The complete model isn't stated so couldn't look it up. But you can go to Sears.com, click on parts, enter your complete model number and a parts list with diagram of parts will come up.
