I have an Easy-Flo central vac unit. The handle on the electric hose has a switch on the handle. With the switch on ''O'' in the center, it's off. On the left, is the ''I'' position. The vacuum runs but the power brush doesn't. On the right is the ''II'' position. The switch won't flip that way. It feels stuck. It feels as if there is something underneath of it that won't let it push that direction. I have the switch out of the handle, but I can't seem to get the actual black casing around the

The handle for my Eureka 5993 AVZ was getting very hot when used. Finally, the wires around the switch melted and now the vacuum will not work. What is wrong? Is the switch bad? The wires only melted in the immediate vicinity of the three-prong switch. Nothing else appears to be wrong; the vacuum worked fine when it was running - except for the handle getting hot.

I have Nutone VX550C. Motor runs intermittently (cycles on and off rapidly--the light on the handle is blinking furiously) when I use the on/off switch on the hose. This happens at all of the wall connectors, so suggests a hose contact problem. Motor runs continuously when I turn it on at the switch on the wall unit.

The unit does have a switchs the PVC outlets, and it sounds like the hose mech to operate the switches is broken, and intermittently making contact. A replacement hose would likely fix the problem. Looked them up on the net, and they're not che ... Broan-NuTone VX550 Bagged Central System Vacuum
