Having problems with your Beam Industries Vacuums ?

The Vaccum is not turning on when i plug the hose into the wall. The hoover system will turn on when i turn the switch on at the base and wont go off till i turn the switch off. But it will not come on automatically when i put the hose in to the wall connections. Many Thanks Linda


Answers :

You can test this out by taking a small metal spoon and with the bottom side of the spoon insert it into the vac outlet on the wall. you want to touch the two metal pins inside the vac outlet to test if the unit is the problem or the hose is the problem.
\012
\012If the unit starts, the hose should have a 3 year warranty on it. I recommend you have your nearest beam dealer check it out.
\012
\012If the unit does not start, it has a 7 or 10 year warranty, the circuitry should be replaced. Again have your nearest beam dealer check it out.

I have Nutone VX550C. Motor runs intermittently (cycles on and off rapidly--the light on the handle is blinking furiously) when I use the on/off switch on the hose. This happens at all of the wall connectors, so suggests a hose contact problem. Motor runs continuously when I turn it on at the switch on the wall unit.


The unit does have a switchs the PVC outlets, and it sounds like the hose mech to operate the switches is broken, and intermittently making contact. A replacement hose would likely fix the problem. Looked them up on the net, and they're not che ... Broan-NuTone VX550 Bagged Central System Vacuum

No suction Just received my refurb. dyson animal bagless. Finally figured out how to get it all together, turned it on and there is no suction coming up thru the beater bar. The hair is just collecting around the bar and not going up into the canister. It appears all the suction is going thru the open red end of the attachment hose, which has a vented cover piece. Am I missing a piece or is there a switch to turn of the attachment suction?


So the red hose isn't connected to a part on the vaccum so like it is connected to the connester but not to an opening just above the beater bar, this is the only idea i can supply you with. good luck, maybe i got lucky and helped you out. ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

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.

I have an older model Electrolux central vac. When I put the hose into the wall outlet, the cannister comes on but there is no suction ? What is needed to correct this?


Three things are the most likely.\015\0121. Since it's an older model, the hose is likely well worn and probably has leaks at each end where it attaches to the handle and connector at the other end. If this is the case, a new hose is needed. ... Electrolux Central Vacuum

When I flip the switch on my sebo x1 upright, a red light comes to the brush and bag icons. However, I cleaned out the hose and checked to make sure there is no obstruction from the brush to the hose also, or from the hose to the bag. It is clear that juice is coming to the vacuum, but there is no sign of life except the two red lights.

Hoover on off switch won't turn off. I have to unplug the vacuum to stop it. I have dismantled the handle and now I can't get the inditation in the handle to fit over the little silver knob. I saw there was an on/off switch under the handle that is controlled by a piece of the handle. #1 question for the manufacturer is why don't they put the switch on the outside instead of having gimicks that turn it on and off... arghhhhhhhh
