Having problems with your Beam Industries 2900 Serenity Plus Central System Vacuum ?
Carbon buildup on plug to hose causing burn
\015 I noticed that my Beam Serenity Plus Central Vac has been wanting to shut down, it never did but there is definitely a power loss. Upon taking the hose out of the plug I noticed a carbon buildup on one of the prongs. I cleaned it and put it back in but am still having the same problem. The plastic on the hose section that connects to the plug has a burn spot. This vacuum is about 4 years old now so I'm not sure if it's time for a replacement. Any help or info is appreciated.\015
Sounds like there could be a short in the hose. Try another hose and see if that's the problem. It's too soon to have to replace the unit. Try having the hose checked out, it could be the root of your problem

My dyson dc animal's brush is not spinning. The machine smells like burning rubber. I believe the clutch has gone out but the machine also only sucks from the top of the hose in the handle. I am wondering if the machine is not locking properly which is causing the brush to not need to spin. If this is the problem how do i fix this problem.

Bissell PowerForce Turbo: The motor spindle becomes very hot while spinning, causing the new belt to burn and break. Is this because the motor is overheating?

Shop vac has something plugging hose, I can't disconnect hose
The hose just pushes in. You should be able to just twist the hose and pull it out. After you get it out, try attaching it to the discharge side and try to blow the obstruction out. If that doesn't work, try running a fishing pole or something inside ... Shop Vac (464-38-10) Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum
I was given a model 6591, plugged it in and it worked but didnt "****" and didnt sound right. I turned it off and removed the hose from the back found a badly plugged hose. Removed the hair plug cleaned filters and when I tried to turn it on again. Now the motor will not turn on or even make a noise. I hear there is a fuse that can be blown? How can I find the fuse if there is one? Thank You Ron

Wondering if the head is plugged up because it makes a sound like air is escaping somewhere. I've replaced the original cloth bag with a comparable "O" paper bag from Sears. I tried to see if there was a clog in the hose by placing a broom handle in the hose to see if something would loosen. I also cleaned the filter and the air filter. If the head is plugged, how can I fix it? We can't get the vacuum apart. Thanks.

The hose on my Samsung 9048R is torn partly from the swivel base. The main problem is that the carpet attachment with the beater bar will not operate now. My brother checked the connectivity at both ends of the hose and there is juice at the bottom swivel part but at the other end of the hose where the carpet wand plugs in it is dead. is there any way to fix this? How does the wire go up through the hose? I have looked around on the internet and it would seem that the entire hose assembly is

I've taken everything apart but cannot locate anything that would cause this part to burn up. I think if I did not disconnet immediately, he vac would catch my rug on fire. Help? I didn't send back the warranty card, so I can't get any help from Hoover. Any suggest

I have a Eureka Boss Power Plus and the beater bar is rolling, the belt is turning, but after vacuuming up around the litter box (not a lot of litter), when I turn the vacuum off, the litter, or even household dirt, falls out. When I hold the vacuum back to turn it off so that it doesn't fall on the floor, it's sitting in the cubby where the wheels are. The bag is empty, the hose is not plugged, the hose is securely fitted on both ends of the unit. This vacuum was purchased in July and is being

The brush roller stops turning and I can smell the belt burning, then it will catch and start working normal. I looked under the plate to check the belts and they looked okay and no hang ups of string or anything. The only thing that seemed weird was that the smaller belt that actually attaches and turns the roller is a bit loose. The larger belt is tight but looks like its the one that is burning and causing the smell.
