INSTALLATION
InterVac Models: CS8 and CS-RM 220/240 volt
CAUTION: To avoid possible electrical shock, be sure that electricity is turned off at the main switch or circuit
breaker. All wiring must be in accordance with the National Electric Code.
Note: Electrical connections should only be made by a qualified electrician.
SERVICING OF DOUBLE-INSULATED APPLIANCES
A double-insulated appliance is marked with one or more of the following: The words DOUBLE INSULATION or DOUBLE
INSULATED or the double insulation symbol (square within a square).
In a double-insulated appliance, two systems of insulation are provided instead of grounding. No grounding means is
provided on a double-insulated appliance, nor should a means for grounding be added to the appliance. Servicing a
double-insulated appliance requires extreme care and knowledge of the system, and should be done only by qualified
service personnel. Replacement parts for a double-insulated appliance must be identical to the parts they replace.
To reduce the risk of electric shock, this appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). This plug will fit
in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a
qualified electrician to install the proper outlet. Do not change the plug in any way.

Recessed Installation into Wood or other Hard Surface Walls:
The central vacuum should be mounted so that the power supply cord can be plugged directly into
an electrical outlet. Choose a place that is centrally located to maximize the reach with the vacuum hose.
The minimum wall thickness is 1cm the maximum is 25cm.
The cut-out in the wall is 28cm wide X 15.3 high and requires a minimum depth of 15.3cm.
Very important: If you installed the vacuum in a very small cabinet you must make provisions to
exhaust the air from the vacuum out of the cabinet.
Option 1: Cut a hole in the cabinet a minimum 70mm, attach a louver to cover the hole.
Option 2: Use our part #B560 exhaust fitting with a 50mm diameter flex-hose to guide
the warm air to the outside, or to where ever you prefer. See page 8 options
Step A. Tape the paper template against the surface at a comfortable operating height
Step B. With a skill saw cut along the dotted line of the paper template.
Step C. Slide the unit, power cord in first, into the opening and secure by tightening the four attached
screws with the “clamps”. Do not over-tighten.
Step D. Check to be sure dust bag and motor filter are in place.

for the vacuum valve or VacPort. Extend the wires along the 50mm flex-hose and
connect the wires to the valve.
e) Connect the wires under the screw heads on the back of the valve.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT REMOVE THE SCREWS COMPLETELY. You will lose a tiny

TROUBLE SHOOTING:
TIP :
If using our very convenient stretch hose, be aware there will be some loss of suction power, should you require
more suction power, we recommend you try our traditional central vacuum hose.
NOTE: IF MOTOR SUDDENLY STOPS:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
The most common cause is a clogged hose. Disconnect vacuum hose from cleaner, hold one end
high up in the air and drop a quarter or similar object into the hose. If the quarter gets
stuck the hose is clogged. Try to unclog the hose with a long stick or see below “cleaning the hose”.
The bag is overfilled or fine dust has clogged the bag.
Replace with new bag.
DO NOT EMPTY AND REUSE
The vacuum cleaning tools are clogged.
Vacuuming large amounts of dust other than household dirt, such as dry-wall or fine wood dust can
block the bags pores fast, even if the bag is fairly new.
The motor filter is dirty and should be cleaned or replaced.
If vacuum unit is installed in an air tight compartment the exhausting air cannot escape, the motor can
overheat and shut off until it has cooled down and is restarted. See page 3 “very important”.
CLEANING THE STRETCH HOSE:
The stretch hose, besides all of its’ conveniences, has a tendency to get clogged, especially if you have pets.
a) lift the hose up on both ends and dispense some liquid detergent into both ends.
b) with a garden hose, holding both ends still up, fill ¾ with water.
c) shake hose up and down, let detergent loosen the dirt.
d) stretch the hose as far as you can ( 2 people required ) and wash the dirt out with the full pressure of the
garden hose. Repeat if necessary.
e) Hang hose up, let hose drain and dry completely, up to 24 hours.
MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTION:
a) Keep vacuum chamber clean. Use a brush to clean out dirt if accumulated.
Options:
VacPort sweeper pan.
Model A900 with LED lighting
Model A910 without LED lighting
For CS8-RM models only.
Besides a standard vacuum valve you could add the VacPort in
your kitchen cabinet’s kick-board and use a broom to quickly
clean the floor.
