Power Head Not Turning On
The vacuum runs when plugged in but the motor does not run. We think it may be an electrical connection problem but are not sure. Any suggestions??
The suction turns on but the vacuum head doesn't spin? That is usually the wall end of the cord. The two pins or the pigtail cord depending on the vacuum hose you have. If you can test continuity that will tell you. We have instructions and parts here https://builtinvacuum.com/hoses/electrichoses-tech.html
Turns Off Right Away
My vacuum was disconnected at the tank part everything inside the walls wern t touched.Now all I see is a tube coming out from the wall and 2 wires. and when I plug the vacuum in at the tank it switches on then goes off rite away.Can you tell me whats missing thanks
The tank needs a new motor and maybe circuit board. Or you can buy a new tank, any MD made tank will do but we suggest you call a dealer for help. The tube and wire simply need to be routed to the tank and you are set.

I own a 30 year old Centra Clean built-in vacuum system. I need to replace the cylindrical foam rubber filter that fits over the air intake cylinder inside the main unit below the motor. Are replacements available? Is there a parts supplier in Toronto?
I have a CentraClean CP 5000. It keeps shutting off while I am vacuuming. I have to flip the switch off to keep it from tripping the reset button on the unit. After doing this a few time (3-4) during cleaning the reset triggers and I have to wait a minute and then go out and push the reset button. Why?????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a Centra-Clean Model CL-120 where the motor may have stopped working. Can I get a replacement motor for it? I can't even find if the manufacturer is still around.
Hello Kevin, you can get a replacement motor for but we don't have a cross reference. Is there a 6 digit number on the motor in the unit that starts with 11?
