Shorten hose, Beam

\015 Shorten hose\015

Answers :

If your Beam has a fixed handle RUBBER hose with switches and is deteriorating between coils, you can dismantle the handle (or wall end) with about 6 screws. If it has a swivel handle with switch it can not be shortened. If it is not switched and non electric, the cuffs simply unscrew and the vinyl can be cut and reglued with vinyl adhesive.
You will see once open the handle that the hose has fine wiring wound through its shell and this wiring controls the switching between the handle and the vac. You must unwind the hose from the inside handle stem, cut short with a utility knife and wire cutters and then screw the fresh hose end back onto the handle stem.
The hose should also be glued from the inside (after cleaning with a dry cloth) with a contact type cement suitable for rubber and plastic. Generally PLIOBOND is used.
Then splice your wiring and reassemble the handle.

Stops Immediately. We have a Beam Serenity model 2100 installed in the home and when the hose is inserted into the wall it turns on for a few seconds and then shuts off on it's own. Turning the handle's power switch off/on restarts the unit only to have it once again stop after a few more seconds. The canaster is clean. What could be causing this stopping issue? Thanks.
