Choosing the Right Central Vacuum Attachment Kit for Your Home

by Zack 24. February 2014 09:43

At first it seems overwhelming to choose the most suitable central vacuum accessories for a home.  One should become familiar with several subjects before committing to any particular kit to ensure compatibility and performance. However, besides the overall performance of central vacuum attachments, where is a good place to start?

One of the best questions to consider, even before delving into the vast quantities of attachment sets, is "which types of flooring does the home consist of?"  There are sets of central vacuum accessories that are intended solely for homes with bare floors (i.e. tile, hardwood, granite etc.), and other sets intended for homes containing both bare floors and carpets.  It is imperative to narrow down which surfaces require maintenance prior to inquiry to avoid becoming deluged with the possibilities.

Once the desired attachment set is understood, the next step is determining compatibility with the existing home. The most effective way to begin this process is by examining the current central vacuum hose cuff where it plugs into the wall.  Depending on the way everything was wired during installation, the cuff will either have a seven foot pig tail cord extending from it, or two prongs for direct plug-in. The hose with a pig tail cord is used with central vacuum attachment kits that require an additional 110 volts of electricity to operate motorized components. For use, the cord is plugged into a nearby outlet while the hose plugs into a standard inlet valve. Central vacuum hoses with a two prong plug-in have the additional 110 volts built into them.  When the hose is plugged into the inlet valve, the prongs make contact with the integrated receptacle, powering both the central vacuum unit and the necessary attachments.  The standard size for inlet valves is an outside diameter of 1 1/2 inches.

Central vacuum attachments provide unparalleled reach and cleaning capabilities.  The wide variety of options allow for a level of cleanliness that most conventional vacuum cleaners are incapable of reaching.  Although the selection process may seem arduous and overwhelming, the afformentioned steps can help alleviate the stress.  Electrolux, Beam, Eureka and Honeywell are some of the top recommendations in terms of quality and performance contributing to the continued success of central vacuum systems and accessories.

Top 5 Vacuum Cleaner Brands According to eVacuumStore.com

by Zack 17. February 2013 06:33

With such an abundance of vacuum cleaner brands making a name for themselves, it can sometimes be difficult to choose which one is ideal for your specific living or business conditions.  Through the oftentimes overwhelming veil that is created by the cleaning industry, how is one to know which brand to choose?  Well fear not!  A list of the five best brands of vacuums has been compiled, in no particular order, to help alleviate the stress that can occasionally be associated when searching for the newest addition to your cleaning arsenal.

The first brand worth a notable mention is Miele.  Miele is a German based company that strives to provide consumers with the highest quality imaginable in terms of their upright and canister vacuum cleaners.  With over 100 years of experience in the field, it's obvious that they have applied their innovation and ingenuity to their machines, making them as consumer-friendly as possible.  Sealed HEPA filtration, durable design, light  weight, and overall silence are some of the features that help to separate Miele from the rest of the competition.  This brand has divided their vacuum cleaners into various series: the S2, S5, S6, S7 and S8 series.  The S7 series is the only series of Miele vacuum cleaners that is not canister type.  This particular series contains Miele upright vacuum cleaners, that are considered to be the best on the market today.  Similarly, the S8 line is considered to contain the highest quality canister vacuums and is also the newest series of the Miele vacuums.

Next on the list is the world-renowned brand. Electrolux.  As one of the most common household names for close to a century, Electrolux has created a name and fan base for themselves that seems to be insurmountable.  Considered to be the standard for canister, upright and central vacuums alike, this brand provides a certain quality of cleaning performance and filtration that leaves homes cleaner and fresher than they have ever been before.  From their humble beginnings with canister vacuums like the Model V and Model L, to their undeniable success with the Electrolux central vacuum systems like the PU3650 and PU3900, this brand is certain to provide you with one of the greatest ranges of machines available today.

The list of top five vacuum brands would not be complete without yet another German manufactured brand gracing its presence.  SEBO has been dropping the jaws of consumers for close to forty years due to their innovative design, causing their canister and upright vacuum cleaners to be considered the best pet vacuum around.  In fact, SEBO vacuum cleaners were some the first to have the automatic shut-off function when something gets caught in the brushroll.  This feature is ideal for pet owners, as well as any home or business owner interested in keeping their home/business and vacuum in optimum condition.

Another brand that simply cannot be overlooked when considering a new sweeper is Panasonic.  Oftentimes this brand name is associated with quality electronics, however the quality of the bagged and bagless vacuum cleaners available are definitely worth mentioning.   HEPA filtration is a standard among the majority of upright Panasonic vacuum cleaners offered by this brand which helps to guarantee that you and your family are breathing only the cleanest air imaginable; and with the option of bagged or bagless, you're sure to find a machine to suit your specific needs.  In addition to their diverse array of upright  vacuum cleaners, Panasonic canister vacuums provide one of the most versatile cleaning experiences of any brand.  Similar to the upright models, these canister style vacuums primarily operate using HEPA filtration but additionaly utilize OptiFlow technology.  This allows for a consistent flow of air in and out of the machine even when vacum vacuum bag becomes full.

Last , but certainly not least, on the list is Kirby.  This brand has been an established company for over a century and has since obtained plenty of experience with the competitive nature that is the vacuum industry.  Kirby vacuums are generally sold door to door and are made out of aluminum which makes them one of the most durable vacuum cleaners available.  Due to their aluminum bodies, these vacuums are projected to last consumers, smart enough to own one, well over thiry years.  This being the case, the only additional time and money that needs to be spent is maintaining the sweeper, which is much cheaper when compared to purchasing a new one every few years. Kirby vacuum bags are readily available for all models including the Ultimate G, the G4, G5 and G6, as well as the earlier models such as Generation 3.  Newer models such as the Kirby Sentria are also easy to obtain vacuum cleaner bags for.  Similar to the availability of the bags, Kirby vacuum parts such as brushrolls, hoses, belts and attachments are easy to come by and work together to keep your machine lasting a lifetime.

How to Replace an Electrolux 1590 Circuit Board

1. Remove the three screws loated at the of the machine and remove top cover.

2. Disconnect all of the wire from the circuit board with needle nose plires.

3. Remove the nut from the front of the circuit breaker, and also remove the front screw just below the nut.

4. Once the circuit board has been removed, you will need to drill a 3/4" hole where the screw in the circuit board has been removed.

5. After the hole has been drilled, you can now insert the circuit board into both holes and lock into place with the nuts provided.  The low voltage wires will now be connected into the new circuit board and the old red low voltage receptical will no longer be used.

6. Next proceed to connect all the wires to the circuit board: 
-Connect the black cord lead to L (The top contact on the left side, looking at the front of the circuit board).
-Connect the white cord lead to N (The second contact on the left side, looking at the front of the circuit board).
-The third contact is left blank.
-Connect any of the two motor leads to MN (The fourth contact on the left side, looking at the front of the circuit board).
-Connect the last motor lead to the top contact on the right side, when looking at the front of the circuit board. 
-The second terminal on the right side, when looking at the front of the circuit board is left blank.

-The two wires on the bottom of the circuit board are not used on Electrolux model 1590, they are used for a filter lock out swith on a newer model. You can tape them back, or cut them off so they are out of the way.

7. You are now ready to put the top cover back on and test the unit.
