You can try to isolate the problem by moving the vacuum switches, which
will switch the "motors" out of the system, depending on switch
position. If the problem goes away with a switch in a certain position,
then you've narrowed the problem down to that leg of the system. If the
problem stays for all switch positions, then the problem is in the
vacuum supply side of the system.
