Having problems with your Vacuums ?
Central Vac does not shut off
\015 My wife was vacuuming today and when she was finished she hit the off button on the nozzle to off but the central vac still ran. She disconnected the hose from the receptecle in the wall and it still ran. I tried switching the button on the cannister to manual but no luck. Finally I had to unplug the power cord to shut it off. I pulled each receptical in the wall out to see if there was any lose wires but everyone seemed fine.I'm not sure now what my next step should be can someone help? It is a Kenmore Central Vac about 8 years old\015
I would almost guarantee the relay inside went bad. its an inepensive part that any good vacuum tech or electrician could install.
Sounds like the relay that is in the central vac unit is stuck to the ON position. When you plug it back in..does it start right up ? If so.. You should be able to disconnect all the receptacle feeds to the central vac unit at the central vac unit to determine which one ( if any) is calling for the vac to stay on.. if none are.. then it is internal to the vac and may be a stuck relay... Hope that gives you some ideas to check...

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.

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. ...

My brand-new Hoover Windtunnel T-Series Pet Rewind Bagless vac simply shut off while I was using it and now I can't get it to turn back on. I've emptied the dirt collection bin and let the unit sit unplugged for 30 minutes to reset the Thermal Protector as per the manual. I've even tried a few different outlets just in case a fuse got tripped, but the vac still won't turn on. What happened? Do I need to return this vac to the store? I just bought it 5 hours ago.
