Having problems with your Easy Flo EF1600 Central System Vacuum ?

Power to operate beater bar

\015 What power am i looking for? I have 2.3 volts ac and think i need 24. Second question is i located another vac system that said to operate the suction motor, you jumper the 2 low voltage wires with a screwdriver. ok so where is the 117 volts coming from to operate the (power head) or beater brush?\015

Answers :

Do you have direct conect style inlets? your power nozzle is ran from a completly seperate power source from the main unit. this comes from either the plug part of a direct connect inlet, or your hose has a pigtail cord your plug into a regular electrical outlet. the only place you should have any 14-2 wire going to inlets is if you have the direct connet style.
\015\012I am taking ashot at providing you with enough information that you will be able to work thru your problem with it.Here is a link to a standard installation kit http://www.thinkvacuums.com/instructionas.pdf
\015\012and this one
\015\012If I understand your question, the two low voltage terminals should be shorted together in order to activate the 120VAC to the brush motor. As rge drawing indictaes, you may also press in the two terminals at the vacuum wall receptacle to short the low voltage circuit .. to activate the 120VAC to the motor. If you are measuring across the terminals and see 2.3 volts ..than that may be normal but try measuriung from each terminal to ground and see what you get.. I believe the low voltage circuuitry is 24VAC... Try these installation documents to see if they help you solve your problem.. Hope this helps..

My dyson animal is hard to push on carpet - the beater bar is still operational. When I turn off the beater bar and run the vacuum on hardwood the beater bar stops moving, but it still ''rolls'' on the hardwood - it doesn't pull up like it used to. It also seems to not be picking up as well as it used to, although no blockages are present and the filter is clean.

Again, I have a Bissel Model 3760-4. The same problem as everyone else. The beater bar will not turn. Took apart, nothing. Took to vacuum repair shop and they said it is not getting power to the motor to the beater bar. Seems like a fair number of folks are having this same issue. You would think Bissell would come up with a fix, if nothing else to save their reputation. Thanks Diane
