We had a Nutone VX550 Central Vac system installed in our new home built in 2007. Since then we have had to have the power unit replaced (it burned up) and now we have an issue with a flimsy piece of plastic that broke, it engages the cardboard gasket to the suction. My husband called Nutone directly after the first vac's power unit motor blew up and they sent a replacement directly to our home and he installed it. I have been notified by the warranty company that I have to drive and pick up the new replacement part and have to install it ourselves. Needless to say I am very concerned, my warranty is up next year and I am afraid I am going to be stuck paying for other troubles that obviously plague this power unit. I have spoken to 2 Customer Service Reps for Nutone and both times I have found it to be a less than enjoyable experience, they immediately were on the defense when I told them which unit I had put in my house, basically they take no responsibility for their poorly designed, poorly made central vac power unit. I have spoken to the local warranty people, who service these units and they have said that they are plagued with issues. I would not recommend purchasing this unit due to its poor quality and adversarial response from customer service.

I bought this vx550c to replace a 30 year old Nutone that was getting noisy due to a bad bearing in the motor.

This unit works OK when clean.

The plastic seems about Wally world/big box store generic shop vac quality not $400 plus quality.

If you think this is like a Dyson or other push vacuum with one of those neat never clog up plastic holding tanks you just dump
and put back in, you are mistaken.

This "bagless model with cyclonic action" is just the standard model with a non replaceable filter cloth that has a weight sewn in the center of the cloth. I believe the idea is under suction it sucks the bag and weight upward and when you turn it off gravity drops it down and knocks off the dust stuck to it.

It does not work well at all.

Even though the bucket is not yet a quarter full It gets a loud/struggling motor sound and suction drops off every month or 2.

Then I have to put my shop vac outside and duct tape my central vac hose to the shop vac hose,pull the shop vac filter out and proceed to vaccum the Nutone filter out. After cleaning the filter/blowing all the dust outside it starts working Ok again with none of that "i'm gonna burn up" motor sound.

Doing the cleaning ritual every month or two is about as much fun as it sounds, however I think if you don't clean the filter out good every few months it would burn up/die long before a pricey central vac should.

My original Nutone was made back when they cared about making a durable product, I'm going to replace the bearings in the motor and when this VX550C dies I'll gripe about wasting money on what I thought would be a good product and then switch back to the old non annoying to use one and just change the bag once or twice a year like I used to.

This was a replacement for an old model of Nutone in my case. This is the cyclone or bagless version. I had to make couple of modifications to my existing piping to make this fit, but it was very easy to do. I recommend it.
