Thanks for your question. There are some major benefits offered with a central vac system versus what you may be experiencing now with an upright. For example - you may notice dust particles in the air after you vacuum when sunlight enters the room. You may also notice odours after vacuuming. You’ll experience neither of these issues with the Vacuflo Built-In Central Vacuum system. The built-in cyclonic power of VACUFLO offers up 5 times more suction and power of an upright. The result is your family breathes cleaner air and will live in a cleaner home!

First, check the breaker in your electrical panel and reset if necessary. You should also check to see if the reset button on the canister itself has popped out. (The reset button is located on the upper left hand side of the unit above where the low voltage wires connect into the machine.) Push this reset button in if it has popped out. If the power unit still does not come on, try plugging something else (hair dryer, electric drill) into the electrical plug your canister is plugged into. It may be that your electrical outlet is not working, in this case call an electrician. If you have checked all of these items and your unit will still not come on, please contact your local dealer for service.
This black film is carbon dust that is caused by the wearing down of the motor brushes. This is not an indicator of bad motor performance. This dust typically accumulates on the PVC tubing that connects to your unit on the right side because the tubing has a static electric charge that attracts small dust particles.
The problem could be that the pleated cartridge filter needs changed. The filter needs to be replaced once a year to avoid build-up of dust and debris. If this does not restore the suction to the original level, you may have a clog or an air leak in the tube system.
