Carpet Beater for Central Vac
\015 I have a Hoover central vacuum with a carpet beater brush. One of the wires entering the carpet beater was frayed and eventually broke. I took the carpet beater apart cut off the broken wire, bared some new wire and re-connected the wires to their proper places. The carpet beater works on another Hoover system but does not work on the original. Took the handle apart. There is the plug, the switch and what looks like a circuit board to which wires are attached. they go to terminals that connect to the circular part of the end of the hose. The vacuum works but the carpet beater does not. Is it possible that one of these three items got shorted and needs to be replaced?\015
Some of these types of hoses, if there is a male plug on the end that goes into the wall outlet, could be that one side of it is fused and will have to be replaced. When something happens like a short or a bad brush roll stall, this fuse will open up. If you supplied the model number I may habe been able to look it up and see. But if the hose end cuff comes off, then you can check it with an ohm meter to see if one side is open or not.

No suction I am getting no suction on my central vac at the vac. I do not believe that the piping is plugged up, the vacuum is not creating suction. What are the causes of no suction at the vacuum and how do I take the top half of the Nutone central vac off?

I have just purchased two (2) Electrolux Nimble vacuum cleaners. Not one, but both, straight out of the box, the beater bars will not run. It turns on, select carpet, and lower the handle, the red light to check beater bar/or filter lights up.

Now the kicker, if you take out the handle, select carpet, lower the body by the carry handle, it will run and operate correctly, however, as soon as you r
