What to do if Volta Ducted Vacuum system does not start!

I’m John Ellem from Ellem's Centravac. We are the national distributor of Volta Ducted Vacuums.

Just to clarify situation on the odd occasion you may find when you insert the cuff into the inlet and the machine doesn’t start, this could be caused by several factors:

• One will be that the two little terminals inside the inlet as you’ll see now, these two terminals need to be sitting proud.

• If one of them or both of them are not sitting proud, it means that some dirt or grime has been caught and they’re not popping up making contact to the metal ring on the cuff.

If this is the case, you need to clean the inlet and that will normally solve the problem.

If not please give us a call on (03) 9555 9411 .We will explain to you how we can resolve this problems yourselves.

Use of telescopic rods in central vacuum cleaner

I’m John Ellem from Ellem's Centravac. We are the national distributor of Volta Ducted Vacuums.

On several occasions we had people comment they felt that the telescopic rods, that we supply, with our kits is too short.

Now the simple explanation with that on the rod there is a button. If you press that button, you are then able to extend the rod and that now gives you a nice long ride which would be suitable for any size person.

If you have a need for it is a great investment. If you don't have need for, naturally you don't need to purchase it.

Only one thing with this head, it comes with the instructions - every time you finish using it before you put it away, take yourself a pair of scissors and then run it along and cut the hair etc. off the roller brush.

How to insert hose cuff into the inlet?

I’m John Ellem from Ellem's Centravac We are the national distributor of Volta Ducted Vacuums.

Just I would like to show you how about the insertion of the cuff of the hose, into the actual inlet. Open the flap up, the cuff goes in, and as you are pushing it in just give it a little twist towards the end thus taking it that little bit further in. This ensures good contact with the low voltage system.

To stop the vacuum system you may find that again a little twisting may assist with the cuffs removal from the inlet.
Now with the inlet, it is very important that you notice that there are two little terminals or contacts.

They need to be proud or sitting up so as to make good contact with the cuff one of them is not coming up its jammed in with some sort of grime or bit of dirt or something and that needs to be cleared.

• If one of them or both of them are not sitting proud, it means that some dirt or grime has been caught and they’re not popping up making contact to the metal ring on the cuff.

If this is the case, you need to clean the inlet and that will normally solve the problem.

If you are unsure of what to do give us a call (03) 9555 9411, We will explain to you what the process is.

How Central Vacuum System can be installed in New or Existing Home?

Installation of central vacuum system is surprisingly easy for new or existing homes.

However before commencing any installation steps, we recommend you watch this tape and read the installation booklet:

  1. Watch Tape
  2. Read Installations Booklet
  3. Check local building codes - Central vacuum system installation must conform to local Building regulation planning.

Planning the installation starts with determining the number of inlets required and their locations, much of this planning is predicated on the style of home, the power unit and accessory kit to be installed.

When choosing the inlets locations, the hose from the central vacuum system is an important measuring device. Select an interior wall (with in 1.2 meters of an electrical outlet may be beneficial long term) that will allow maximum cleaning coverage with the hose assembly, usually several rooms can be cleaned from a single inlets.

Either draw a floor plan as described in the installation booklet, If the scale is 1:100 a piece of string 11 c m long would be the hose from the selected inlet to determine the area that can be cleaned, remember the hose may have to reach around furniture when cleaning, ie an eleven metre hose would usually have a radius os 8 to 9 metres depending door positions as well as furnishings.

Keep in mind that the idea of a central vacuum system is to use the fewest number of inlets possible yet as many as necessary allowing for whole house coverage and user convenience.

When choosing the power unit location remember an electrical outlet must be close by, a 10 amp circuit is sufficient if no other heavy loads are on it. The power unit should be accessible for easy emptying and service. Its location should be outside the living area where ever possible. An attached garage is ideal.

You may want to vent the unit outside but it's not necessary. The last step in planning a central vacuum installation is to plan the entire piping system. Start at the proposed Furthest inlet and then work your way back to the motor location picking up the other inlets as you go. If at all possible it is better to run the piping under the floor if the house is suspended on stumps. With solid Brick and concrete houses the initial pipe run should be prelaid prior to the slab being poured.

When there's no under floor access run the pipe up to between the two floors or to the ceiling for a single storey , then up and down the wall cavities to the inlet locations. For existing structures pipe can run through the back corners of cupboards, under stairways, alongside plumbing pipe and if on stomps it could be best to mount the inlets on the floor in near the skirting board.

In homes under construction install pipes after framing and before the war lining is on. To avoid problems be sure plumbing and heating systems have been installed. Determine the location of electrical outlets, remember pipe using the straightest run with the least amount of bends and curves will result in the most effective and efficient cleaning system.

These are typically the tools needed for a central back installation. Refer to the installation booklet for a complete listing of tools and procedures. Now that you have your tools installation materials and have completed your planning.

Let's start the installation

To install inlets in an existing home, check the walls in which the inlet valves are to be installed, for possible obstructions between the studs when the house is upon a concrete slab or better still utilise cupboards to run the pipe down from the ceiling.

When the house is on stumps

cut a straight piece of coat hanger of wire at an angle and use it as a drill. Being careful not to snag carpet fibers drill a pilot hole through the floor directly below the proposed wall location or floor location leave the coat hanger in place. It will be your locator and guide point.

From beneath the floor, measure over from the pilot hole to locate the center of the wall soleplate. Now drill a 60 millimeter diameter hole through the center of the wall soleplate, check for inner wall obstructions with a flashlight or probe the inner wall with a section of tubing. For a floor mount simply ensure that there ius sufficient clearance for the vacuum pipe and inlet to connect.
