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.

This is a direct replacement of the original motor - not a knock-off. I added the electrical connectors and hooked it up and it works just as it should. The price was right, the delivery was fast and the product is as advertised. That's the way things are supposed to work.

New factory motor, not refurbished, not difficult to install. New motor brushes are included and installed. Before ordering, remove the motor you are replacing and check to see if you need to replace the motor gasket which is located under the motor right above the top opening into the canister. Better to find out now that you might need to order one along with the motor. I'm very pleased with your products, service and prices.

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.
