The Ametek Lamb 116472-00 Motor is intended for for central vacuums, industrial vacuums and blowers, and similar applications. It replaces all versions of the 116472 motor used in all types of industries spanning many decades. The 116472-13 version is intended for applications where water vapor may reach the motor, but the 116472-00 can be used otherwise. Older model 116472 motors may not be marked properly with the motor number and some may have 11-6472 or just a 6472. We do not recommend rebuilding these types of motors due to cost and technical precision for proper performance and longevity.

Question: I have an old Astro-Vac SR-42 with AMPS at 10. If I buy this motor should I buy a new relay board and if so, which one? Thank you.
CVO's Answer:

Hello and thank you for contacting Central Vacuum Online my name is Ally and I am happy to assist you today.

This is the proper replacement motor for your unit (116472-00) Your current unit should have a 15 amp board presently and there should be no need to replace it unless it is experiencing issues as well. The new motor should not affect the current circuit board. 

Question: will this motor work with my Vacuflo 466Q
CVO's Answer:

Hello and thank you for contacting Central Vacuum Online, my name is Ally and I am happy to assist you today. 

Unfortunately, I do not have reference to the motor in the Vacuflo 466Q. The next step would be to remove the motor and reply with the 4-6 digit Lamb Ametek Motor # printed directly on the motor.

Question: Does the Ametek Lamb Central Vacuum Motor 116472-00 fit my Vacuflo True Cyclonic Model 260? Do you recommend any other components be replaced at the same time the motor is replaced? Thanks for your help, Bill
CVO's Answer:
Question: Have a Vacuflow model 460. 28 years old. Vac will no longer quotsuckquot enough to run the power head of the whole house system. Is this just a symptom of the motor being old?
CVO's Answer:
Question: Does this motor work on Vacuflow 260 True Cyclonic?
