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. ... Electrolux Central Vacuum

Hello, I have a problem with my Eureka Powerline bagged upright vacuum. It has a 12 amp motor and is model #4352, Type D. It was probably bought new in 1998. My problem is, while vacuuming today the motor seemed to slow down all of the sudden and then began smelling like burning rubber. I shut the vacuum off to check for blockages but could not find anything blocked. When I then turned it on again it runs but seems to only be running at 1/2 the motor speed and still has the rubber buring smell.
It sounds like a rubber sealing in the motor has come loose and is being constantly rubbed against the walls of the motor with would cause the smell and loss of motor speed caused by the fricton of rubber against the rod so if you can get to the moto ... Vacuums
Central vac system is 18 years old. Recently started to shut down during vacuuming. Motor may be over heating. Electrolux has been out and is pushing a new system but not sure if it is necessary.
The motor can be replaced for a lot less than the cost of a new machine. A new motor comes with a one year warranty if installed by the service tech. A new CV unit alone may be over three times as much, but does have a five year warranty.\015 ... Electrolux Cs 3000 Central System Vacuum

Hoover F5809 Hello, I seen a few of your post and was hoping you could help me. I just became a member today. My sister gave me her old Hoover Steam Vac-Model F5809. This thing is so dirty and clogged because my sister has pets. So far I've gotten it all taken apart to clean it. I'm not a newbie and taking apart and fixing things. I have fixed things like microwaves, washers, dryers, dishwashers (still learning about TV's-very hard, hehe). Anyway, I got what I believe to be the motor cover off.
That cover is the called the fan cover and is usually pressed on. Tapping on the edge with a flat blade, you may be able to get it off and hope you don't bend it up, you will to put it back on tight enough so it will stay in place. Another thing to ... Vacuums

Dust....dust....dust 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

Power I bought my Vac about a year ago for a home project, used it about an hour total, and when i went to use it today, it started to turn on, and then shut off. I thought i tripped a breaker, but that was not the problem. Very confused. George
I had a similar problem with a Shop Vac. The solution was to disassemble the power switch and polish the metal electrical contacts to remove any oxidation caused from humidity. Tedious and time consuming but effective. ... Craftsman 17026 Wet/Dry Vacuum

Have you checked for a clog in the lines or in the hose? If there is no clog in the system anywhere, then your motor could be dying. ... Electrolux Centralux Vacuum
No suction I am getting no suction on my central vac at the vac. I do not believe that the piping is plugged up, the vacuum is not creating suction. What are the causes of no suction at the vacuum and how do I take the top half of the Nutone central vac off?
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. ...
