Beam powerhead looses power intermittently

I have a Beam central vac with a serenty plus powerhead. Recently the power to the brush/light has started cutting out intermittenly. I cleaned the contacts where it connects to the handle, but that did not solve it. I realized that the power cuts out has the wand swivels up and down. There is a switch in there that that turns the head on when the wand is released by the foot pedal. Could this switch be acting up, or should I look for a different issue?

SOURCE: Electrolux Central Vac - very hot where tube attaches to handle

Hello randpmarion,
Because you said you had intermittent power and the area where the wire is got very hot, there is a high probability that you have a poor electrical connection inside the handle. Left unrepaired, it could pose an electrical hazard or fire hazard to you. If you unplug it and can disassemble the arm, look for evidence of carbon or arc damage near where you felt the high temp but I would not use it as is until it is repaired or replaced,
Regards
Rick

Have you checked the roller brush. Thread, string, and hair wrapped around the brush will create stess on the motor, resulting in overheating and shut off. Clean the brush and try.

The electric powerhead for my Beam Central vac shakes or vibrates as I vacuum.Cannot find an obvious problem. Brush strips are not worn.


The brush roller itself may be warped, or the bearings may be starting to wear out.

Replacing the brush roller may solve the entire problem.

Good luck.

My eureka central vac power brush turns off when pushing forward than back on when pushing back. Ever seen this before?


Yes I repair them all the time. What that means is that the connection of the hose handle to the power brush upper wand is loose. This can happen over time with use. The connection just loosens up. Do you have the exact model of the power brush?

The plugin indicator light is on and the unit won't run but the powerhead will. Is the motor bad?


The motor could be bad. Sometimes the carbon brushes will get stuck from the fine dust buildup over the years and will loose connection with the comutator. Take the vac to your Aerus/Electrolux dealer/shop for repair.

Problems with Beam central vac


My Beam central vac has started turning off after about 10 minutes of use. I thought it was the hose, but the hose in the garage does the same thing, and I've also tried the other outlets, and the same. The canister was just emptied about two weeks ago. I have also reset the breaker, and unplugged and replugged in the system. Could this be a bad motor?

I need a new hose for my Electrolux central vac


Do you need a new powerhead too or only the hose? If you need a new powerhead than I would recommend looking at the Imperium Pro Elite Attachment set. It is an excellent quality powerhead and hose. If you only need a new hose than you will need to contact the Aerus because they will be probably be the only company who can sell you a hose that wil be compatible with your powerhead. Their website is http://www.aerusonline.com/products/

Do you know what a filter bag looks like in a central air vac system?


The unit displayed is a Beam Electrolux central vacuum power unit. It has a 15litre dust bucket which does not need any dust bags.

If you take the bucket off you will notice a white shiny weighted bag hanging down. This is the filter. The good news is, it is a self cleaning filter.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The Beam Central Vac may have more than a one year factory warranty and it sounds to me that you may have a bad relay switch the Central Vac, if you do it should be covered under the factory warranty. Otherwise, you may have a bad supervalves or a wire came loose, if the hose switch turns on the power nozzle then it may be a bad supervalve or a bad relay and to contact the installer or the manufacturer of Beam. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
