AirStream with Bag?

Marilyn, Canada Thanks for the answer re my airstream vacuum, I have a sponge filter in the machine, which was with the machine, there is not a paper bag in it, but it says on the machine that it should have a paper filter.

Answer:
That is probably a paper pleated filter, not a bag. We have not seen a bag in AirStream system but then again we have not seen every single unit out there. Is there an obvious pipe inside that a bag would slip on to?

Bags Seem Too Big

I have an Modern Day J model and just bought some 8 gallon replacement bags. When I put the paper bag inside the support bag, there is a ton of excess paper bag bunched up. Is this normal? Do I need a larger support bag?

Hi, that is completely normal and intended. The bag has a lot of surface area to draw in air. Thanks for asking.

Easier Way to Change Bag?

I was wondering if there was a bag that made it easier on me when I change it out? I have been using these paper bags for years now on my silent master, and they work great. But as I'm getting older, the dirt from the bag has not been good for my health. Any suggestions would be very helpful.

Answer:
Hi, yes you can buy a different bag and the adapter that goes along with it. The price is just a couple dollars more and the bag makes changing it a lot easier. Take a look at it here https://builtinvacuum.com/bagsfilters/bagadapter.html. Note that if you want to use the inlet on the front of the unit then you can't make this conversion.

FX3000 Grommet

I have a FX 3000 and all I need is the cord grommet that wraps around the power cord going into the body of the vac. I was hoping to get a parts break down, but can't find any. Can you help me? Thanks in advance. Bailey Rochester,NY

Answer:
This is not a part that we carry. As this is only a rubber grommet to prevent vibration damage on the cord, you can use any fitting part that is available from your local hardware or electronics store.

HEPA?

What is the filtration capability of this bag...HEPA?

Answer:
It is nearly HEPA. It is .3 microns at 99.7% effiency with the vacuum motors at full speed. Remember, that few HEPA filters are doing HEPA filtration once the air moves too fast through them. There are not a lot of standards in this realm so buyer beware. Most filters are tested with very little airflow which is not the case once in the vacuum itself. Once in, it is a different story!

How Often to Change?

Simple question I hope. What is the best indicator for changing a bag? We vacuum the entire 2200 ft2 house twice each week. Just two of us, no pets--- house mostly closed up depending on season. In about two months use, I have about 3 inches of debris in the bag. Time to change? Gary Ziols Park Ridge, illinois

Answer:
It sounds like you should change your bag about once a year, unless you feel more comfortable with doing it more frequently. The only real issue is the weight of the dirt, so that you can lift it out, and if it is causing too much loss of suction. We have serviced homes that have had no bag changes or emptying in 10 years, are totally full, enormously heavy, and still have decent suction!

How Often?

How often should you change the bag...Sue...Falmouth, MA

Answer:
Hello Sue, we recommend changing the bag every 4 months or so. If you have shedding pets it may be sooner than that.

MD Bags? New to Central Vac

We just moved in to a home that has an MD J 114 central vac. So - do I turn it on at the switch at the bottom of the unit? Then when I insert the hose in one of the wall outlets in the house, it starts to vacuum? I notice that the wires that go from the unit into the house are connected (spliced?) with those twist-on connectors electricians use. Is that ok? Would another type of splice be safer?

Answer:
Hi, congratulations on your home and the central vac. We made that vacuum and would love to assist you. When the hose is inserted into a wall inlet, and the switch on the hose handle is activated, the suction starts - if no switch then the suction starts upon insertion. The wire nuts you see on the low voltage wire is fine. It will not shock you. The on/off switch on the unit can be used when you insert a hose into the utility valve on the front. The manual you need is here www.builtinvacuum.com/manual and the parts and accessories here www.builtinvacuum.com/help/md.html. Oh, and yes, these are the bags you need.

Modern Day Replacement Bag Size

Hello, I just bought a home with a Modern day vacuum system installed and I can't find a model number on it. I need filter bags and the rubber gasket. Can you tll me how to figure out the parts needed in order to get this operational. The movot seems to work great.

If your unit is under 34 inches, then you need the 8-gallon replacement bags. If over 34 inches, then you have the 12-gallon size. The rubber gasket will be the same for both size bags.

Modernaire Filter Bag Needed

Our unit is Modernaire with "Red Carpet" printed in large letters on the front and the manufacturer is MD with a Hollywood, Calif. address. My problem is that the last few batches of paper filters I have purchased are all 13.5" in diameter and they are just a bit small and fall into the fabric liner every time.

Answer:
The unit is made by MD and should be using the following bags that have an elastic top that wraps around the metal circle of the cloth support bag. So you should have these two things in your unit. We are MD and all of our units use these filters. https://builtinvacuum.com/retail/shopretail.php?part_no=720H-5,710

Never Changed Filter Bag?

I have an older MD built-in vac system. We have never changed the bag and I intend to start doing so. It is a model B2. Which bags do I need, and how are they installed? I opened the top of the unit but can't quite see how they attach. Also, do you have a list of available attachments and options? I would like to get full use out of the system. It seems to work great.

Answer:

Thankfully, you have our signature top-emptying vacuum tank that will never be damaged when the filtration is not maintained. For your information, here is the Owner's Manual for Modern Day. You will find bag changing, replacing, and buying information there too. If your bag is full of dirt it can weight as much as 50lbs so you'll have to scoop out a lot of it to begin with. Getting new attachments will take your cleaning to the next level as well. Your system is universal so it can use any of the tools, kits and hoses for Modern Day. If you have a carpet consider an electric kit. Simply changing the bag and buying a new kit will take you to a whole new level in CLEAN.

Pick Up Drywall Dust?

Hi, I was wondering if MD central vacuums are meant to pick up drywall dust, or if it will damage the system. Thanks, Andrew

Answer:
Hi Andrew, dry wall dust is the most corrosive for all vacuum motors. At MD we are not worried about it though because we filter all if it out using our high quality filter bags. Great question, thanks.
