MD Manufacturing is known for quiet and powerful central vacuums made in the USA. Since 1961, MD Central Vacuum has made quality and service the number one priority, as evidenced by products in homes across the world, and by the quality of this website and its thousands of reviews.
MD's original vacuum line is the Modern Day Central Vacuum, otherwise known as "MD". The all steel, powder-coated unit was mainly colored blue but in 2010 it went to a modern grey. MD Central Vacuums were first produced in California in Charlie Emdy's garage. With the guidance of Charlie's son, Wayne, the business prospered, eventually moving to manufacturing facilities in Bakersfield, California. Take a moment to see MD Manufacturing's history and where we are today.
If you are new to central vacuums or moved into a home with an MD Built-in Vacuum System, we make it easy for you to understand how the system works and determine if there are any issues that need to be addressed. Read the central vacuum overview and then use the homeowner's guide to thoroughly review the system. In fact, if you place an order with us, you will receive a free, 24-page booklet full of parts and accessories, as well as troubleshooting tips and guides to understand the vacuum and how to maintain it.
The central vacuum parts, products, and accessories above are compatible with all Modern Day central vacuum cleaner models produced over the years including the models listed below and those that are not, making it easy to find what you need and repair your Modern Day Central Vacuum. If your home has no hoses or accessories, we suggest a complete attachment kit. The kits here will work perfectly with the system and there is information to help you make an informed decision. If you have a Modern Day but need help repairing it, we have a complete line of compatible products and extensive product information to assist you. Replacement bags for your Silent Master are also available. Should your system have non-universal hoses or inlets, please contact our office for alternative ways to upgrade your system into the more readily available universal components.
If you can't find what you need, please contact us by phone or through the Modern Day Questions and Answers, and one of our helpful technical customer service representatives will point you in the right direction. We also have a large network of independent dealers that can assist you with a Modern Day central vac repair, if needed.
