    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the light weight hose This is my second NuTone as I just built a new home-- I had a Nutone in my other house as well--this Nutone is much improved from my former one-the hose being the biggest change, more flexible--I mostly love the cleaning ability of the Nutone, that has NOT changed.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from NuTone central vac system Very little power, suction isnt great at all. Additional option of under cabinet outlet is cheap. It never seal back up right leaving a vacuum leak while using the system elsewhere in the house. Very disappointed in this system and the money spent.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product is an improvement over prior products. As a central vacuum cleaner this model is an excellent value and performs well. It was a replacement for a prior product and well exceeds the performance of the prior product.

    I am confused by one of the two photos shown on the web site. One shows the vac complete, the other shows it with something removed and a foam circle

    Asked by: Don
    Thank you for your question on the model VX475C central vacuum system. The two pictures you are referring to are: 1) The unit complete 2) The very top of the canister removed, showing the sound suppression system that makes the unit quiet.

    Vacum shuts off by itself after a few minutes.

    I have a NuTone 475CC, the last few years it has stopped after some time vacuuming. It is continually getting worse to the point now where it only runs a few minutes and then stops. I have checked to make sure nothing is plugged that I can find, the motor does not seem to be getting to hot. I am wondering if there is a temp. sensor or switch that might be causing issues. We bought this vacuum when we built our new house 8 years ago and it was good at the start and has been getting worse since. Please advise.

    Thank you for your question on the model VX475CC central vacuum system. The problem is probably being caused by a thermal protector inside the motor. Please contact our Canadian office at 888-882-7626 for assistance.

    Why all of a sudden does my VX475C sound extremely loud

    Asked by: Dannyboy
    Thank you for your question on the model VX475C. Unless there is a clog in the line, the unit should not suddenly sound extremely loud. If the unit is loud when using different inlets and the suction is good, please contact our Technical Service Department at 888-336-6151 for assistance.
