Central Vacuum Motor
Think of your central vacuum
cleaner as a human body. Now think of the role of the heart in
the human body and its many ramifications within the body. The
motor plays the same role within a vacuum cleaner. Central
vacuum motors have their own ramifications or rather components.
These include the field coils, the bearings, the armature, the
fan blades which create the airflow and so on. Now, to continue
with the analogy, think of the replacement of a central vacuum
motor as a heart transplant because both these operations are
only successful in certain conditions.
Can you repair a central vacuum
Not all central vacuum motors can be replaced or repaired. Once
they die, some of them remain dead. These are the so-called
throw-away vacuum motors. Others, on the other hand, can be
brought back to life and, of course, they are preferable. The
match is mainly determined by the model number of the central
vacuum cleaner and the lamb number, but in fact, it depends on
the size of the motor, its voltage and other such technical
details. Naturally, there is no point in keeping a central
vacuum cleaner once it has exceeded its life expectancy, so a
full replacement is recommended in such situations.
Learn about sizes of central
Almost all central vacuum cleaners in North America use Lamb
Ametek motors, so it is almost as if vacuum manufacturers had a
favorite toy in terms of motors. This motor manufacturer has
been leading the market for over fifty years now. In fact, there
are four main toys vacuum manufacturers get to play with. Number
one is the bypass motor, which does not transport the air pulled
in through the electrical part, but through the fan blades. The
three-stage 5.2-inch models create an impressive suction power,
but they also have a cooling fan in the upper part for
protection purposes. A larger toy is the 7.2-inch motor, which
is one of the best models in the world. This motor can be used
with filtered units, being designed to fight small dust
particles, and it is also very durable. The peripheral motor is
smaller, but just as efficient. It is called a peripheral motor
because the air is exhausted around the sides and it is used by
the less expensive vacuum models. Last but not least, there are
through-flow motors, whose airflow is really impressive, but
which overheat very quickly because the cooling of the motor is
ensured by the air pulled in by the vacuum cleaner.
In conclusion, learning about
central vacuum motors.
The last few years have brought a massive wave of motors made in
different parts of the world. Many manufacturers sell central
vacuum motors made in China, for instance. The downside here is
that there are no track records with these motors, so this
approach does not promise to deliver long-lasting results. This
context makes the Lamb Ametek motors really safe to play with,
so to speak. Safety is extremely important when it comes to
central vacuum motors, no matter who manufactures them, because
every central vacuum cleaner needs a good and long-lasting heart
to work its wonders. So choose carefully and play safe!

Central Vacuum Motors are the heart of your central vacuum system. A motor consist of many parts such as, an armature, field coils, fan blades, bearings, etc.
Central vacuum motors create suction power through the motion of fan blades. These blades turn which draws in air flow to create suction. When the machine is connected to PVC pipes throughout the home it will cause the suction to pick up dirt and debris and carry it back to the central vacuum canister for disposal. When buying a replacement central vacuum motors there are a few things to keep in mind.
