Question about Vacuums
The hose connects to a set of low voltage contacts inside the top of each inlet. The vac wiring is connected by a low voltage circuit to each inlet as well. your hose when plugged in completes the circuit when you turn the hose switch on. For simplicity ,I also use a coin to connect the terminals mentioned below instead of dragging the hose with you.
Reinsert the hose with the tongue or cord at 12 o clock or 6 o'clock position. If the vac does not start, rotate the hose cuff to 3 oclock.This over rides the hose handle switch to test the vac circuit.
if the vac still does not start you have a loss of LV signal in your wiring. You will need to back track to make sure you have continuity from the vac to each inlet.
if you have colored alarm or telephone type wire, it is very easy to break a wire strand while fastening so go back one connection at a time and inspect.
If you have no power to any inlets,your problem will be in the main run of wire from the vac, likely to the first connection. If you have power at only some inlets, your issue will be at one of your wire junctions, either at a pipe intersection or where two wires meet at an inlet, depending on how the system was wired.
