Re: BEAM Serenity Plus 2900 has shutdown

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. OK, there is a reset button on the unit but i think it could be that your vacuum could be clogged in the vacuum lines and that you should check all the inlets/outlets in your house with your vacuum hose - or get a vacuum cuff and go to each individual outlets and check the suction by feel - if the outlet is clogged you may have to call someone to unclogg it or by going to each oultlet the system may unclog it self -- or you can use a plumbers snake and be careful because the lines in a central vacuum are thinner than the walls in a plumbing situation or have it professionally unclogged by a priofessional. When you are using another vacuum to unclog the unit make sure the central vac is runing and to try to pull the clog apart from both directions. Below is a link to the factory for Beam and if you need a owners manuel for the Central Vac

Hoover U6434-900 started smoking while vacuuming. Now it will not start. Waiting 30 mins for the reset but still wont start.

Check the drive belt and then check to make sure the cleaning bar is free of hair. This will cause a burning smell. I know, I raised 4 girls.....

System not working when switched on.Observed 3 amp fuse blown. Replaced with 13 amp fuse and switched to manual. Sparks and noise coming from one motor. ? brushes or motor need replacing.

Fuses blow for a reason. It's never a good idea to replace a fuse with a higher amp one. House fires can easily be started this way.
As for the motor, at this point the whole motor will need replaced.

Check to see if you have suction at the outlet, if so
the plug is in the hose or wand. If no suction at the wall, check at the vacuum. If you have suction at the vacuum then the line from the vacuum to the outlet
that you were connected is where the plug is.
Try a plumbers snake to try to get plug out.

Carbon buildup on plug to hose causing burn

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
