"Thank you for your review. The Husky Storm was designed to be worry-free, durable, and user friendly. All vacuum motors have parts that will wear out with normal use and will need to be replaced after a certain amount of run-time. The Husky Storm is equipped with an electronic circuit board that will stop the power unit after 500 hours of usage (approx. 10 years) to prevent costly repairs. The visible LED will indicate hours in advance that maintenance is coming and then stop at 500 hours. The vacuum can be restarted with a simple reset procedure using the one button on the side of the machine. There is no secret code supplied by the manufacturer. We hope you find this information useful while choosing your next central vacuum system! "

They go into a lockout mode and expect people to call a service technitian (which I am sure is not cheap) to "service" the unit and reset the lockout.
Good thing car manufacturers haven't caught to this idea (yet?)
