Question about Easy Flo EF1500 Vacuum

1 Answer

We just purchased a house with the Easy Flo central vacuum system. When we opened the canister to empty it we discovered a bag or something hanging down into the canister. It is covered with dust, dirt, hair and who knows what. Do we change it or clean it?

Hi Trudi,

Yes, you can wash it in warm water with a mild detergent. Be sure that the bag is completely dry before putting it back on.

Should you ever decide you want to replace it, just do a google search for your vacuum make and model number and several websites will be advertising for your business.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. It keeps me working here... Thanks,

Handie Andie

Suction not working. Opened machine and dirt is not going into the bag even though it is empty. Inside of machine is dirty.


Check that the hose is not plugged. If you hang it over a railing, then look down into it, you won't need a second person. Alternately drop a golf ball or a marble through it. If the ball makes it through, then it can't be clogged.

I am assuming you have checked the breaker that it is on? Have you tried using it at a different outlet?

I am buying a central vac system, can you tell me the better of the easy flo or nutone brand. I want the one with the least problems. It appears to me that the easy flo has fewer problems, thank you


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.

How do you empty the bag?


Little gray colored knob at the top of the canister housing and you press that and it seperates the canister from the rest of the upright and then you can go empty the trash collected therein.

My easy flo built in system wont turn on when the


If there is a switch on your hose, it may be broken.
Your system powers on from the inlets via two low voltage wires that run from the inlets to the switch/relay at the power unit. Each inlet has 2 spring loaded pins attached to the low voltage wires. In the photo below you should see these pins at the bottom of the opening, just above the door hinge. The receptacle at the top of the inlet in this photo supplies 110 volts to power your power nozzle. Not all inlets have this option, but if yours does, exercise extreme caution. Your hose must have a completely metal end or if it is a plastic end, it must have a metal band in order to short the 2 low voltage wires together to trigger the switch.
You can manually short the two low voltage pins together by using a metal pipe or needle nose pliers, just touch both pins at the same time. CAUTION: stay away from the 110 volt receptacle if present.
If your system powers on with this manual method then it would seem that the problem is in your hose.
If your system does not power on; your low voltage wires may be disconnected from the power unit or disconnected somewhere else . It's also possible that you have a bad circuit/controller board in the power unit.

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

    Central Vac will not turn on.


    These problems are nearly exclusively caused by a bad circut board and replacing it is the fix. Bad boards can cause many different effects so its nearly impossible to be sure. The 9v signal wire is not enough to short out an entire unit so it is unlikely the hose. If it is a direct connect system and you are pulling power from the 110 somehow that would cause main unit problems but that is unlikely at best. Sounds like a failed board to me.

    Best of Luck

    I can not find how to get the canister apart to empty the dirt.


    From the bottom of your machine going upwards past the handle that is on the canister portion of this vacuum, you will see that the top of that canister had a depression where you should be able to put your fingers in, and gently pull that lid back, opening the vacuum bag compartment. According to the manual, simply pull that back, exposing the bag. To remove the bag, pull the cardboard plate on the top of the bag, out towards the no open face. Throw away your old bag, and take your new bag, fold down the paper sides of the bag, then slide the new bag into the track completely. Close your lid, and you are done.
    While you have this compartment open, it's a good idea to check your filter that sits below the paper bag.

    Part numbers
    Paper Bag: SC-P11
    Filter: SC-F2

    I hope this helps you.

    HOW TO EMPTY


    One of 2 ways, some you just take the top off, it will have a paper bag that you can toss and put in a clean and empty one. The other is the bottom is actually a bucket that unhooks so you can empty it. Hope this helps.
