Question about Vacuums
I have a Hoover central vacuum with a carpet beater brush. One of the wires entering the carpet beater was frayed and eventually broke. I took the carpet beater apart cut off the broken wire, bared some new wire and re-connected the wires to their proper places. The carpet beater works on another Hoover system but does not work on the original. Took the handle apart. There is the plug, the switch and what looks like a circuit board to which wires are attached. they go to terminals that connect to the circular part of the end of the hose. The vacuum works but the carpet beater does not. Is it possible that one of these three items got shorted and needs to be replaced?
Some of these types of hoses, if there is a male plug on the end that goes into the wall outlet, could be that one side of it is fused and will have to be replaced. When something happens like a short or a bad brush roll stall, this fuse will open up. If you supplied the model number I may habe been able to look it up and see. But if the hose end cuff comes off, then you can check it with an ohm meter to see if one side is open or not.
