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.

Did not know the part # so had help from customer service right away to get the exact part needed.

Part came on expected date, no issues with delivery. Instructions on website were very helpful to replace old part with new.

Vacuum now works better than it has for a long time even when old motor was working.

I had priced part at a few different sites, this company sold part for almost half what other sites were advertising.

Very satisfied with purchase.

When then vacuum motor was first installed it made a horrible noise, then then the bottom of the motor started spinning and came off. It was pressed back on and seems to be working fine for now.

The Lamb Ametek Central Vacuum motor I ordered was shipped along with the 235SB circuit board and received in Miami within a week and I returned to Canada with the two items however unfortunately I messed up during the installation and caused a problem with the circuit board. The Central Vac Online representative was very understanding and shipped a replacement circuit board on a one time basis and my 30 year old central vacuum is working like a charm and with much more suction.

Thank you Central Vacuum Online for the great customer service and to Jenny and Ally.

Five stars for sure. Exactly what I needed. Super fast shipping, received it in less than 72 hrs, and it was free. Best of all, it was less than half the price of America's prime online retailer.

Quick delivery of what appears to be an exact replacement motorblower. Good replacement part service and price . Expedited delivery happened as advertised.

Unfortunately a replacement was not needed after all. When removing the old overheated motorblower I found the blockage and managed to clean up the original motorblower. Unit ran great so I have decided to keep the replacement as a house spare.

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.
