When to replace: The signs that a 116765 lamb motor needs to be replaced include: mini breaker popping, electrical smell, excessive blue sparks seen from motor top, you only hear a click, motor shuts down on its own but works later, or its life of 900-1,200 hours has been used up. (If you don't hear a click, then your relay most likely needs to be replaced and your motor may be fine). Five percent of the time, the minibreaker will go bad as well as the motor. If this happens, replace the motor and then evaluate the mini breaker.

Great customer service. I was looking for a single stage motor for an older Hoover Central Vac model that was discontinued. The representative was able to find me a 3 stage fit. I did try a couple of other places before I found MD Central but they could not cross reference. In about 15-20 min after double/triple checking the specs, I had a motor on the way. No issues with installment nor operation. It's a little louder than the single stage but it's cheaper than a new system!

Thank you for your help, you're a God send. You quickly sent my new central vacuum cleaner motor and gaskets, and the installation was a breeze. Thank you again for your technical assistance. Sincerely yours, Donald Haggerty, New Haven, Ct
