Some of the Electrolux central vacuum parts that may be replaced over time include the motor, PC board, relay, and other various components that are used for the attachment set.
The motor for your central vacuum is housed in the central vacuum unit itself. It us usually located at the top of the machine, and can be accessed via removing the top plastic cover. This is not true for some Electrolux central vac models. If you have a motor go bad, it is better to go ahead and replace it rather than purchase a new unit.

The only other main electrical component on the Electrolux central vacuums manufactured by beam is the PC board / Relay. This printed circuit board combo is the computer of the central vacuum unit. It is one of the most important central vacuum parts, as it regulates the power going to the motor and will shut off the unit if it overheats or trips a circuit breaker. If this piece of the central vacuum unit short circuits, it is extremely easy to replace and can be accessed via the top of the machine.
Other Electrolux central vacuum parts that you may need to replace are the parts for the power head, hose, and all the extension wands in between.

Luckily this can be repaired and the parts can be found on centralvacuumdirect.com. The Electrolux hose is also a part that tends to wear down throughout the years of use. These central vacuum hoses can short out in the handle, within the hose itself, or at the base of the hose end.
