Question about Electrolux Central Vacuum

1 Answer

Electrolux central vaccum works sporadically

I am having problems with my 10 year old central vaccum. It keeps stopping but when i twist the pipe slightly, it works again. The 1/2 inch needles that join the pipe become very hot and one can burn themselves from touching them. Not sure what to do to get it to work again.

The the hose, wands and power nozzle to the nearest AERUS store for repair. You have a short that needs to be fixed. They should just be able to replace the wire assemblies inside the wands, handle and power nozzle.

My beater bar is struggling to turn. actually, it appears as though it is the motor that is struggling, as it slows down when going against the pile and the motor labours so much that it frequently fails...


Replace the belt, they should be replaced every 6 to 12 months. A belt may look ok but may have lost elasticity and be stretched out. If your belt is a year or two old it may be an inch or so longer than when it was installed. A stretched out belt may turn the brushroll fine but when it is lowered onto the carpet the belt may slip rather than spinning as fast as needed to properly agitate the carpet fibers.
If the motor isn't spinning properly that could be another problem.

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.

Motor not working


You have the vacuum unit and most people have a motorized power nozzle. If one or both of these is not running properly you can likely take them to a local Vac shop that sells, installs and services central vacuum systems. Some will come to your home. In what city and state are you located?

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

    Problems with Beam central vac


    My Beam central vac has started turning off after about 10 minutes of use. I thought it was the hose, but the hose in the garage does the same thing, and I've also tried the other outlets, and the same. The canister was just emptied about two weeks ago. I have also reset the breaker, and unplugged and replugged in the system. Could this be a bad motor?

    Sounds like the motor finally siezed on you. Motor is trying to turn but won't thus the hum. Do not allow the vacuum to stay on like this as it may cause a fire. Requires a motor replacement.

    Hello,
    I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The Beam Central Vac may have more than a one year factory warranty and it sounds to me that you may have a bad relay switch the Central Vac, if you do it should be covered under the factory warranty. Otherwise, you may have a bad supervalves or a wire came loose, if the hose switch turns on the power nozzle then it may be a bad supervalve or a bad relay and to contact the installer or the manufacturer of Beam. 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.

    My Kenmore Central Vac loses suction


    Do you have the same problem in all of your outlets? If you do, then there is a problem with the hose end. If it is only at one outlet, then that outlet has a problem.
