I just installed 3 of these outlets to my Central Vac, However when I connect my hose that has a "cuff with metal 1.5" ring" my vacuum does not turn on. I have checked all 3 outlets with a jumper and they all switch the vacuum on when I jump the metal contacts inside the outlets. Is their a special hose cuff for this utility outlet or is their something else that I can do that will correct this problem?
Hi, any vacuum hose with metal on the end should touch the inner contacts on the valve and start the suction. You have verified that the contacts, when shorted, start the vacuum. The hose's metal end, when touching them will do the same. Please verify that the hose is going in far enough.
