TriStar EXL/MG/CS Series
Original Message   Nov 1, 2012 11:01 pm
Will a HEPA filter fit the motor of my TriStar EXL?

This is the filter I'm refering to

And will this motor fit the EXL or MG Series?  I want to "supercharge" my EXL & have equal power like the CXL.

btw, I'm enjoying the EXL more because of its quick-connect wands & PN.

I thought my EXL had a VM3 motor; fortunately it has a Lamb (Ametek) 2-stage motor.

The HEPA motor filter fits my EXL's motor.

I guess the EXL is just as powerful as the old CXL.

So today I REALLY enjoy vacing the car with the EXL & MiniStar; connectilng the MiniStar to an extension wand makes vacing more comfortable.

I just replaced the EXL's motor with a Ametek/Lamb high-performance motor #115923 & it's more powerful than ever before. Now the problem is, I bought a 12ft electrified hose & the PN will NOT turn off, even when the hose handle switch is OFF. Hopefully removing the wand won't short-circuit & melt the hose handle and/or wand(s) or PN swivel? Is the hose handle switch faulty or are the wires not properly connected? The regular length hose handle switch works; but it's when I use the 12ft hose on the EXL.
