Question about Sunbeam Vacuums

Open Question

Changed the motor carbon brushes on my Beam central vacuum cleaner equiped with an IntelliWatch system. This system includes the Alutron DB100 module. This Alutron module needs to be reset so that the vacuum cleaner can operate properly. I believe that this module keeps log of running time and disables operation after a predetermined time. Can you help me with providing a reset procedure that will reset this module. Thanks

There are two screws just to the rear of the accessory compartment. There are also two hidden screws under the cord retractor lever. I tried to get the retractor off by pulling upward on it, but it just wouldn't come. It is not screwed down but held by friction via its hinges. The way I got at the last two screws was by drilling a couple of holes thru the plastic cord retractor lever - about 1" from the end of the lever on left side (looking from the rear of vac) and about 0.5" from the other end of lever.

SOURCE: Carbon Brushes wearing out quickly on Kirby Heritage II

4 possible reasons.
1 – one or both bearings are worn so armature (rotating part) wobbles as it is spinning and cause motor brushes to wear fast. Solution – change bearings too.
2 – Whoever replaced brushes – did not use some brush seating sticks to make cmutator smother and contour brushes to the shape of the comutator (not likely). Solution – appropriately install new set of brushes.
3 – Comutator is so warped that seating sticks do not help anymore – solution – new armature or turn the old armature.
4 – The fact that ONLY ONE brush was worn may mean that there is something wrong with the brush or housing. Maybe it could not move freely within the housing? I think this may be most likely cause it it may be a combination of all 4.Is it worth to fix? Hmm depends how much will it be. If this is 100+ - I’d say get newer Kirby for 300 ad enjoy the tech drive (Heritage does not have tech drive so it is much harder to vacuum with than the newer models)

SOURCE: how to replace central vacuums Carbon Brushes

The entire brush and holder assembly has to be purchased/replaced. That's the plastic piece that screws on to the motor. I don't think you can even get brushes for their machines anymore.
Remove screws. Remove plastic piece from motor. Replace.

Depending on the age of the vacuum and how much use it gets, the first two are possible. I would question the brushes as they should last for several years.
The servicing is generally for labor only and doesn't include parts. I do recommend this regularly, more often if used a lot (yearly).

Motor will not start


You appear to be describing a case of motor brushes worn out. They may be replaced on some motors, but if there is damage to the motor armature (the rotating part the brushes contact) rhe brushes mayu not last long.

I have a Beam Central Vacuum cleaner. I can't dislodge a piece of mulch from the rug attachment, and the motor won't turn on.


Don't know which power head you have, but if there is a base plate, take it off, you should be able to get to the debris from there. If not, remove the screws from the bottom and remove the top. Some also have a cover over the brush roll, remove it and then you can get to the brush roll and inlet. It stalled the brush roll, that is why the motor won't turn. Some have a reset on the back of the power head and it most likely tripped, just push it back in.

Beam Central Vac Breaker Pops
Posted by tinateggart1 on Jul 17, 2008
The breaker on our beam model 167 central vac popped while in use. Every time I try and restart it, it immediately pops again. What's the problem? Circuit board? Motor? Overheating?
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Chances are it is the relay switch on the inside of the Beam Central Vac, if it was a motor, it would not turn on @ all. If it was a circuit board, it may or may not be turned on, but if it will turn on and then pop your circuit breaker than it probably is the relay switch. Please, check with your local Beam vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or contact the Beam website or cust serv @ the phone number listed below. 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.

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.

Motor won't turn on


It sounds like you have a motor problem there. I don't know how old your machine is, but if it is still under warranty, don't explore any further as you will void your warranty. This problem sounds like a carbon brush problem and you will not be able to address it yourself unless you know your way around an electrical motor. The carbon brushes can stick or become jammed and once they are loosened up, they need to be reseated or the motor will burn out. You will not be able to do this yourself. These motors generally have 5 to 12 year warranties and yours may still be under warranty. If your machine is over 10 years old, the carbs are probably worn out and the motor will require repair or replacement. You should refer to a competent tech for help.
