We have a beam Serenity plus home vacuum system and there is no longer sucks. I removed the dirt from the bottom plastic container, but I also notice a sack or bag connected to the unit when I removed the bottom container and inside that sack there appears to be lots of dust. How do I access that and remove that dust without damaging the unit. I don't know how to do that

Hello. Let's begin by getting that dust and dirt out of your permanent filter. To do this, get a big clear plastic bag and pull it up aroung your canister, with the dirt receptacle removed. Then Grasp the sewn in weight inside of the filter and shake it around. This will cause the dust to come into the plastic bag. Continue to do this until most of the dust has left the filter and made it's way into the plastic bag. THEN

1. Put the empty bottom plastic container back in place as hopefully now, and turn the unit on using the manual switch on the side of the unit. Let it run for ten minutes.

This may solve the problem but if the system is still clogged read on:
1. Replace the empty dirt receptacle and use the manual switch on the side of the unit to start the unit. Leave it running as you continue.

2. Then start at the closest wall balce to the unit and open the door to the wall valve. Then let a tissue be sucked from your hand. If the tissue makes it back to the dirt receptacle proceed to the next wall valve.

3. IF at any valve, the tissue fails to go through to the dirt receptacle, there might be a blockage of some degree. At this point, use a shop vac or at least another strong vacuum cleaner to try to use back suction to uncolg the blockage.

4. If that fails, you will have to snake the pipe, a dry garden hose works well for this purpose.

Enjoy your working system and be sure to empty the dirt receptacle on a regular basis so the filter doesn't get filled again. Regards, Joe

BEAM VACUM DOSE NOT WORK GOOD BECAUSE SOMETING SUCKED IN THEIR


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

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.

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.
