Thank you for your question on the model 352 central cleaning system. There is a muffler (model 392) that can be installed on the exhaust side of the 352. This muffler will help reduce the noise that gets transferred to the outside, through the exhaust ducting. There is nothing that can be done if you are trying to quiet the main canister.

Question

Power heads

I have a central vacuum system, but the power head has broken. I would like to know if power heads fit universally. That is, would your power head fit an older system that is still working well? Also, does the electric power head that you offer include an electric cord that plugs into the wall?

Thank you for your question. If your existing system has been installed for many years and the hose(s) are older, there is a good chance that you will need to replace the power head, wand and hose. The CT700 is not a universal fit for all of our older hoses and wands. If you need additional assistance, please contact our Technical Support group at 888-336-6151.

Thank you for your question on the central cleaning system power head. The CV750 is the model number of an older unit, but not the model number of the power head. Please contact Technical Support with the model number of your power head for further assistance at 888-336-6151.

Question

The electricity is not getting from the wall to the vacuum. I've narrowed it down to a problem in the hose since I've bought a new motor and wand.

I see that there is a fuse in the handle of the hose. Could this be the problem?

Thank you for your question regarding your central vacuum system. If you have good suction at the other inlets, the most likely cause of the poor suction at the dustpan would be a clog. You can use the “Dealer Locator” link on our website to find a service center in your area, or you can call Technical Support at 1-888-336-6151 for further assistance.

Question

Can hear the suction throughout the office

We have had the vacuum system for about 2 1/2 years in the recent added on in our office. We have it throughout the building, we can hear the suction throughout the clinic if it is being used it one of the rooms. Wondering if that is normal or is something missing?? Our Dr actually installed it because he installed it at his home, there is no noise and is very quiet when it sucks at his home. We have the VAcusweep Model # C13671V, not sure if that will be helpful.

Thank you for your question on the central cleaning systems. The problem you are having is probably from a stuck relay inside the main canister or a short in the low voltage wiring. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 888-336-6151 for further assistance.

Thank you for your question on the model CV750 central cleaning system. The unit should automatically turn on from inserting the hose into an inlet, or from a switch on the hose handle. If you turn the unit on from the switch on the tank itself, the unit will run until the switch is turned off. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 888-336-6151 for further assistance.

The openings at the top of the canister are for ventilation purposes and even if they were dirty, this would not drastically affect the suction, as you describe. I would suspect that either the bottom pail is not fully sealing or there has been a break in the tubing somewhere. To eliminate the latter possibility, remove the tubing at the canister and then check the suction, with no tubing attached. If you need further assistance, please contact our Technical Support group at 888-336-6151.
