We are a hair salon and have been using the MD central vacuum in a commercial environment for over 12 years. We handle 100 clients a day 7 days a week.. I have just now replaced both motors and updated the circuit board. It runs like new. I estimated the usage over the 12 years to be nearly 500,000 cycles. Without hesitation one of the best and most used pieces of equipment I have purchased. I'm good to go and looking for another 12 years. Tech/sales staff was a a tremendous help when I ordered the parts. Guess you can say something about American made Thank you
I found the motors easy to install and very pleased with performance.
The motors are a different size than the originals--not as tall--they work fine, but are not the same and that was a bit disconcerting
I finally got them working properly after a big struggle. The motor's rotation is dependent on how the electric connections are made. I first had one motor reversed so there was lots of noise, building up heat, but only a trace of suction. Eventually I figured it out, swapped the leads on one motor, and now everything is ok.
I could have used some help. Marking the connections as '+' and '-' on the motor would help.
Other than that I have a brand new central vac system.
The new motor fit perfectly and works great, my central vacuum is back in normal operation.
I ordered this motor to replace the old, model 6763-13 motor, for my BEAM355 central vacuum. New motor is a little shorter than 6763-13 but no problem for cooling. The only thing is to swap old three connectors to new motor. It works very good. Thanks a lot for MD CENTRAL VACUUM's professional work.
Installation was easy and fixed my problem.
Easy to install and runs great.
I would rate one motor with 5 stars, the 2nd motor with 4 or less because when received it was in compromised condition. Since none of the packaging was deficient, I can only surmise that the housing was dented before it left the factory. This dent caused a high pitched noise when the metal under the housing was in contact with the housing.
I wish that when I reported this problem to customer service the rep would have offered to send a new motor overnite so 1 could get on with my life (have a labrador who sheds constantly). Instead my choices were: 1) to continue to use the compromised motor for 7 days while waiting for the replacement; 2) opt to have no vacuum for 7 more days.
Worked just as advertised
A perfect fit to replace the bad motor.
The motors appear to be satisfactory but there were 2 significant faults which made their installation difficult. Considering the cost of these units, correction of these faults would be inexpensive and of great benefit to the installer.
The 4 holes in the plastic base were not tapped, as they were in the original cast metal base, to accept the mounting screws. I called your customer service and after being placed on hold for a very long time, I was told that the screws are self tapping. No screws were supplied with the motors and the original screws are not self tapping. They simply ream out the holes to the O.D. of the screws so that the screws go into the hole but the threads do not grip the base. It was necessary for me to purchase a suitable size tap and tap the holes myself. I am a Mechanical Engineer but I suspect that most homeowners would not have the expertise to do that.
One of the leads from each of the original motors was joined to one from the other motor at the connection to the single terminal on the relay.
The new wire set consisted of 2 separate pairs of wire, each with their own individual terminations. It is not possible to connect both motors to the relay. It was necessary for me to cut off the terminations and purchase a connector that would accept 2 wires, one from each motor.
All in all, installing these motors was a very frustrating and time consuming effort.
Not difficult to install, works like a champ!
Easy replacement and works great
Install was straight forward and now the vacuum works as it did. Thanks.
Quick shipping, great product!
I received the motor and scheduled its installation.
Upon installers arrival, he noted I needed two motors. I had no idea until he took the vac apart and showed me.
One old motor needed to be reset, so we kept that one and replaced the other one with the new motor. The installer thought it would be ok. Since the installation, the central system works. I just have a continuing concern and wish I had known of the two motor requirement.
Upgrade motor installed easy and works, seems little quieter.
