You have several options. You could replace the motor itself (not too difficult), or you can replace the entire unit with a new quiet and powerful SilentMaster for about 3 times the cost of the motor. The SilentMaster's exhaust emits no visible dust (unlike the Vacuflo), and uses disposable 12 gallon paper bags. Regarding your inlets, we recommend updating them with an adaptor and new faceplate (not difficult). There is more information on the Vacuflo Help
page about that. Your older attachments and hose will work with the new inlets so long as you buy a new hose end with a metal ring on it (found in Hose Parts
). If you have carpeting, we suggest making these changes and buying a complete Stealth Kit with corded hose.
