  • Bagged version power units feature a sleek design allowing them to mount closely against the wall so you can make the most of your space. The power unit has a revolutionary internal sound suppression system that provides quiet performance. A convenient status light on the power unit indicates when the replaceable bag is full and needs to be changed. New motor designs have up to 5 times more cleaning power than conventional vacuums. With better filtration, you won’t be spreading the dust around -- because microscopic dust particles are exhausted to the exterior of your home.

    • Designed for larger homes up to 4,000 square feet, this power unit has a 2-stage motor that delivers 475 air watts of power, making it the most powerful unit in its class to deliver deep cleaning and better filtration than any conventional vacuum; UL Listed for your confidence
    • Easy access door to change the debris collection bag; typically bags need changing only every six months and have a self-closing collar which minimizes exposure to dust and dirt; that means simple maintenance and a cleaner home with improved indoor air quality
    • Large six gallon 2-ply disposable filter bags securely trap dust and bacteria which means your environment stays cleaner longer
    • Internal sound suppression system significantly reduces noise, so even though it’s mounted outside the living area, you won’t hear it through the walls
    • Featuring a true “bag-full” light, the unit will shut down automatically to avoid rupturing the bag; a great safety feature that makes your life easier (order replacement bag 3-pack VX3916)
    • Dual vacuum air intakes are located on both sides of the unit for connection of the trunk lines and for flexibility of choice in installation locations; six foot power cord included for even more convenience
    • NuTone Central Vacuum Power Units provide superior soil removal, filtration, efficiency and carpet wear and are recognized in the industry as products you can trust

  • VX475 is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product works very well but is bulky to store away The hose is quite long, it takes a lot of space in the closet to store, the supplied hose Mounting Brkt is too small to loop all the hose on it, even a couple of times and still lays on the floor taking up even more space. The power head Vac workes well, all three tools can attach to it for handy storage. All in all a nice product. Tom G.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The vacuum has preformed as expected. My only issue was with the hose kit that I purchased with the central vac. The metal tube/fitting on the hose's handle, that inserts into all of the attachments kept coming out when I was using the power head attachment. Every time I would pull the power head back to me the tube would come out of the handle. NOT GOOD! This started happening the very first time I used it. Long story short, I called Nutone, told them what was happening and they said "no problem". They verified my receipt, and in less than a week I had a new hose that so far has worked great. I have been very satisfied with my Nutone central vac every since.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quite Operation and Powerful Cleaning I'm now retired, so you know I have been vacuuming all my life, and this product VX475 is simply the Best. First I notice how quite it was because the noise was out in the garage instead of being right next to me. Then to my surprise I did NOT feel any hot smelly air from the vacuum because the bag is also out in the garage, and last I like to tell you just how powerful it is with all the attachments, this vacuum cleaning by far will out perform any hand push model. So there you have it, QUIET, AIR PURIFYING, AND EASY CLEANING. That's what you want in a vacuum. Look it up at http://www.nutone.com/ Thanks for reading.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The greatest I have had the built-in vacuum system in two different homes for the last 40 years and you can not go wrong with the systems. I had the intercom-radio in one home and wished I had it in the second. Good product.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from It is cumbersome. The suction is fair, but the advantages over a regular vacuum are minimal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful suction This 475 replaces a 25 year old vacuum that chugged along until it breathed its last. New has far more suction and is a great deal quieter.

  • Where do I get instructions on how to use the attachments?

    The deluxe power head is the only item that seems to run when attached to the nozzle. I assume I am doing something incorrectly when attaching the other accessories so I would like to get an instruction book etc. Thanks

    I have a unit that stopped working.

    I replaced the bag with a new one and also removed dust/debri that had collected over time inside the unit. But now it will not come back on. The green light indicator is lit. Is there a reset button on the VX475 that I can reset the motor?
    Asked by: Tim
    Thank you for your question on the model VX475 central vacuum system. There is a circuit breaker on the side of the tank, but if the green light is on, it would not need to be reset. You can use the “Service Center Locator” found under the “Customer Service & FAQ” section at the top of our web site page to find a service center in your area to look at the unit for you or contact the Technical Service Department at 888-336-6151 for assistance.

    I need to replace a CV352 that is 20 years old. Will the 475 line up as a replacement for it? Does it turn off and on at the outlet when you plug in

    the hose, or do you need to turn off and on at the unit (not a plus...). Also, the unit we have vents inside. Does this unit have to vent outside or can we keep the same venting? Thank you
    Asked by: Nancy
    Thank you for your question on the VX475 central cleaning system. The VX475 would be the replacement for the CV352 and the new unit would work with all of your current inlets, piping, hoses and attachments. The VX475 would also operate the same as the CV352, but you will need to do a little adjustment on where the tubing comes into the unit. We do recommend that all central cleaning systems get vented completely out of the house. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 888-336-6151 for further assistance.

    Left capped side collects debris - shuts vacuum down V475

    Tube on left side of unit, might be used to connect a hose? It collects debris, when it get blocked, it then stops unit from operating. Appears debris not going into bag
    Asked by: Joe
    Thank you for your question on the model VX475 central cleaning system. There are two sets of connections on each side of the main canister. One set is used for the bag version and the other set is used for the cyclonic version. It sounds like the unit is installed incorrectly. Please use the “Service Center Locator” found under the “Customer Service & FAQ” section at the top of our web site page to find a service center in your area to look at it or contact the Technical Service Department at 888-336-6151 for further assistance.
