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 mini breaker will go bad as well as the motor. If this happens, replace the motor and then evaluate the mini breaker.

5.7 Inch Motor Gasket
The purpose of a gasket is to prevent metal to metal contact when bolting in the motor. When replacing a motor you may or may not need to replace the gasket. Some units have quite differently shaped gaskets that are more functional that must be reused. PLEASE NOTE: if your original gasket is a larger form fitting gasket, then REUSE this original gasket to prevent damage to components.

Vacuum Motor Circuit Board Single Motor 15amp 120v


Vacuum Motor Circuit Board Single Motor 15amp 120v
Vacuum Motor Circuit Board Single Motor 15amp 120v

Excellent replacement for all single motor 110 volt central vacuums with a separate relay/transformer/breaker or with a single control board. Some retrofitting may be required.

Compatible and Durable. This very durable, industry standard, Alutron control board contains a relay, transformer, 15 amp mini breaker, and two pairs of low voltage leads (wire set and black tower with flag terminals).

Installation. Circuit board control module is 2" high from board to top of reset button. The reset button and low voltage stems are threaded. When put through holes in the body of the vacuum, the two stems hold the board in place with two included thin mounting nuts. If you don't have a proper hole for installation you can use a drill and step bit to create proper holes. NOTE: It is recommended that an electrician should install this board. It should take them less than an hour.

Wiring. Click on the photo and print it to use as a wiring guide. The connections are 1/4" flag terminals. We recommend purchasing quarter inch female flag terminals to put on the motor and power cord wires, or buying our wire set with terminal ends and striping them into the wires with wire nuts. Wiring locations on the board:

  1. “LINE”: The 110 volt line (usually black) from the power cord
  2. “NTL”: The neutral wire from the power cord (usually white)
  3. “MOTOR”: Connect either wire from the motor to this contact
  4. “MOTOR”: Connect the other motor wire to this contact. Vacuum motors are polar neutral it doesn’t matter which motor wire goes to which motor board contact.
  5. Black Tower: The low voltage wires from the home will attach to the two 1/4 inch male flag connectors inside the black tower part of the board. It doesn’t matter which wire goes to which side.
  6. Yellow Wires: Attached to the board are low voltage wires that can ignored or go to an on/off low voltage switch on the side of the tank.

ATTENTION! Beam, Frigidaire, Eureka, Honeywell Control Board available HERE.
