These motors run like champs. Installation was easy and took about an hour - the motors have 2 black wires and it does not matter which end gets connected - motors operate either way. Did not realize that I was down to one motor that provided limited suction until it failed. Now with both motors operating, it's like we have a new central vacuum system with the air powered sweeper operating as advertised. The motors are also somewhat quieter than the previous motors.
Working good. Powerful and quiet running.
Replacement motors are exact physical format and deliver apparently equivalent technical performance while perceptively operating somewhat more quietly.
Fit and worked very well.
Fit perfectly and works very well.
Motors work fine but are extremely noisy. More so than the old ones I replaced.
Easy transaction. Quick delivery. Installation of the vacuum motor was much easier than anticipated.
Motors are working fine.
The motors arrived as scheduled and are a vast improvement from the originals.
I loved the web site, which allowed me to diagnose the problem and order the new motor. However, I was very frustrated when installing it, as the old bolts did not fit the new motor, and no bolts came with the new motor. This should have been included or noted. Also, the muffler that I ordered with this, did not really reduce the noise.
exactly what was needed, shipped promptly.
Motor fit perfectly and runs great..
Better than the original motor.
There was an error in your web site information and this was the wrong motor for the unit I have. Your customer service rep. discovered the error and promptly sent me the right one. It arrived Friday and it was damaged to being unusable, so I filed a claim with UPS and they picked up the damaged motor today to inspect the packaging. No word on anything yet, so still without the use of our central vacuum until we get a motor that we can use. I know most of this is just unfortunate and I was impressed that when I called about the motor not being the right one, your rep. immediately sent out a replacement that was correct, just damaged in shipping, but, we are still with a way to vacuum our house for weeks now and it looks like it could take another week or better depending on UPS's action or lack of action.
(MD Notes: We regret to learn of this issue. We are reaching out to the customer to resolve this issue.)
Worked great, very satisfied with the vacuum performance.
Very easy to install.
the purchase - the product - everything worked smooth and flawlessly. Will purchase hear again if I have another issue.
Do yourself a favor and buy the motor gaskets whether you think you need them or not! They're inexpensive and will save you time & hassle if you do end up needing to replace them.
The motor works fine. Just wish they had quicker shipping. Waited 10 days to receive the motor. That is a long time to not be able to vacuum with kids, a dog, and a cat in the house.
I had a great transaction the motor worked great . The lady I talked to on the phone was very helpful in helping me pick the right motor. Thanks very much
work was pretty much straight forward...however old screws were difficult to remove [original motors have been in place for 31 years] and i had to get creative to get them out...the hard part in reassembly was to line up the 3 plus inch screws with the top and bottom holes...these screws held the case together... note : the old rubber gaskets were much better then the new foam ones...
Had to replace both motors in my M&S FX500 central vacuum system after 22 years of extensive use. The 116336 Lamb motors were almost identical and I was able to fit them in the housings with no modification. Very happy that I did not need to replace entire vacuum system.
