Sometime during the summer of 2013, my central vacuum stopped working. Resetting the fuse had resolved issue the last 2 or 3 times but not this time.
I researched on the internet. A very useful diagnostic guide suggested a circuit board problem. You can buy these on the internet. I decided against trying to repair it myself.
I found Javid's store on Homestars. Fast pickup & delivery. by the way, I could have detached the vac and taken it to his store myself, but i was not in a position to do that.
He gave the breakdown of the cost over the phone: circuit board card $89, carbon brushes $20, labour and pickup+delivery $120 = $239. Taxes brought total to $270. By the way, I really would not have saved money buying the circuit board via the internet.
I have a Eureka that is roughly 20 years old. $270 got it working great again..
I did not even meet Javid, my tenant did. I paid by credit card over the phone. It was all very convenient for me.
Other customers have mentioned the following. Javid does a bang up job of cleaning the vac. Once he reinstalls it, it looks brand new.
