Thank you for your question on the model CV352 central cleaning system. The current electric power head is model CT700. You will need a new power head, wand, and depending on the hose you have, you may need a new hose. 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. Every time you replace the bag you should clean the secondary filter. You would normally just brush the filter clean or vacuum it off with a hand held vacuum. If the filter is excessively soiled, wash it in a mild detergent and thoroughly dry before replacing.

Question

Hose Switch Replacement

The electric hose failed on our unit (approx. 8 years old). I disassembled it and found that the switch on the handle is bad. The part of the switch that controls the vacuum system itself works, but the other half that controls the AC for the power head is always open. The switch assembly is shown in the enclosed photo.

Would it be possible to purchase this assembly, or at least a new switch. I was in the computer business (Data General, Intel) for years, so soldering, etc. is no problem for me.

Question

Wark suckion fis ?

My vacuum turns on at both unit and outlets but, I have weak suction at all locations. Even at the unit outlet!. Vacuum sounds like it is running strong, at least plenty noisy. I have changed the bag and dusted off bottom filter. Oh yea, old bag looked like someone had vacuumed up water at some time in last six months. No moisture in bag, just discolored, maybe mold...?

Thank you for your question on the central cleaning system. It is much easier installing the central cleaning system in a house under construction, but many times you can install it in an existing house. Please download the installation instructions from our web site for tips on installing in an existing house.

Thank you for your question on the model CV654 central cleaning system. We do not have a model CV654 in our data base, but we do have a CV554 and CV653. The comparable replacement for the CV554 would be the model VX475C. The comparable replacement for the CV653 would be the CV400 or the VX475. If you would like more power you could use the VX550C for the CV554 and the VX550 for the CV653.

Question

switch harness

I need a switch harness for my Nutone vacuum head; I don’t see any identifying model number. The vacuum will work with the switch to the left, which is vacuum only, but when the switch is in the right position it will only run the brushes, no vacuum.
