Central Vacuum System Parts
When figuring out the best way to go about replacing your old central vacuum unit, due to malfunction, you should consider getting the parts that are not working replaced.
Replacing Central Vacuum Parts
Central vacuums are less complicated in reference to accessories and spare parts. It is important to note that only the central vacuum motor moves in a central vacuum system.

It is also way cheaper to replace a malfunctioning part rather than buying a whole new system

If the motor is indeed the problem, you can easily have it replaced by opening the central vacuum unit and taking
