In this article, the top 5 vacuum cleaner parts that usually need replacements are discussed with reference to the central vacuum cleaner. Here are the descriptions below:
If you are cleaning your carpet with your vacuum cleaner with the power-head resting on the carpet, and you notice that the forward pull cannot be felt or the roller brush stall can be felt, you should consider changing the powerhead belt. This is because there is the possibility that the powerhead belt has worn out. When this happens, it will not allow the roller brush to work properly. The belt needs to be replaced in situations like this described here and to do this, you need professional advice.
The Plastiflex Low Voltage Crushproof Hose
This is about the easiest part to replace in the central vacuum. It has a lightweight, a 360 degrees swivel and it is 30 feet in length hose that can be switched off and on for suction. The hose is compatible with the wall valves of a central vacuum cleaner. It features 2 small low voltage metal contacts inside a hole that is 1.5 inches in diameter.
For a central vacuum system, it is quite easy to replace the motor which is most of the time Ametek-Lamb model. The task of replacing the motor is so easy that anyone can do it. However, you need to identify the right motor replacement for your vacuum unit and the right transformer, relays and PC boards that will work well with the motor.
Synthetic Vacuum Bags
This is another part of the vacuum cleaner that usually requires replacement after using your vacuum cleaner for some time. For a central vacuum cleaner, one of the common models for vacuum bags is the Universal CVS synthetic disposable filter bags. Being a cloth-like filter bag, it normally offers an excellent airflow performance and also retains tiny particles well. With this type of vacuum bag, you do not need to bother about hampering of airflow and suction by clogged paper pores because it has a larger holding capacity for the dirt.
The common relay used for most of the central vacuum cleaner is the Vacuflo 7090 (which is a universal relay). It works very well with the single motor central vacuum cleaner system. It is also a very easy task to change the relay of a vacuum system. You should, however, ensure that the vacuum is disconnected from power and always remove and connect one wire at a time so as to avoid confusion.
The above top five parts are the ones that are commonly replaced in a vacuum cleaner and it is believed that it is because they easily become faulty and require replacement. So, make sure you get these spare parts for your vacuum cleaner in case any of them will need replacement at any time possible.
