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.

SOURCE: Electrolux central vac problems

I work on many types of units. If you electric floor brush runs but you have no suction then there is possibly a problem with the relay board that allows you to turn on the suction from the hose handle. This is a low voltage (24 V) switching loop circuit that will cause the 120 V motor in the unit to run.

Inside the wall valve are two brass pins. NOTE: there are 120V valves installed on some systems known as a Super Valve. A shock hazared exists if you work on that type of valve. That being said. In the round portion of the valve you can use a garage hose that has a 360 deg. chrome ring to test the valve. The ring completes the circuit causing the unit to power up and suction at the end of the hose. If the suction is weak, there is a colg in the pipe. If you hear no airflow, the relay inside the unit did not energize or the motor is bad.

To test: go to the unit and turn the switch on the side to "manual" if the unit turns on the motor should be ok. DO NOT RUN THE UNIT without and open valve. In some brands dammage to your motor will occure.

If the unit did not run, look for a small button near the switch. This is a circuit breaker for the motor. If it is poped out and you hear a "click" when you press it in there is most likely motor problems and someone should be contacted for repair.

Hope this helps!!

SOURCE: Electrolux Central Vacuum won't turn off

There is a relay board on the unit (where the dirt goes) There are two small wires that connect and usually a switch near by. This switch has an Auto and Manual setting. If set to manual the unit will run all the time or until set back to Auto. If it is set to Auto and is still running, unplig the two small wires. They are sometimes on screw terminals behind a round plactic cover. It does not matter which terminal the wires go back on just one on each.

If the unit turns off the problem is in the wire running to each valve or a paper clip is shorting across the pins of a wall outlet. (something like this).

If the unit does not turn off once the wires are removed, the relay in the unit is stuck closed and will need to be replaced. Time to call a pro unless you have good electrical skills.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: I have two Electrolux Central Vacs. One is not

If this is a CENTRALUX metal bodied 1590 series vac vac there is a reset breaker on the side of the motor housing of the vac. Depending on the age of the vac there is also a filter lockout switch . If you are using a cartridge filter and it is misaligned and drops down the switch will shut the vac off to prevent motor damage. Check those two items. The internal filter must be fully inserted so its twist lock/washer device can rotate holding it up in place. Then take a pair of insulated pliers and short across the low voltage terminals where the wiring system enters the top of the vac . If the vac starts, it is fine. If not your problem lies in the motor , the relay or the filter lockout switch.
If you have a plastic bodied Electrolux, a recent model the test procedure is the same but there is not the same lockout for the filter

Next test the nearest inlet in the house. If it fails to start you have a break in your internal wiring, possibly at a connection or a an inlet which may have a loose wire connection behind the wall. Post back with your results and if you have more questions. If so post the model #

Have you checked the roller brush. Thread, string, and hair wrapped around the brush will create stess on the motor, resulting in overheating and shut off. Clean the brush and try.

From the description it sounds as if there had to be a short in the unit somewhere. This is what would have tripped the breaker. the fact that it is not tripping could mean that there is a fusible link or that the wires or whatever have burned back from the short, and are no longer shorting out.

Ok thiese are my specialty. Somemodels have a cloth filter, make sure it is clean. Also check the hose or pipes for a clogg. The best way to do this is turn the machine on, put hose in, if the motor winds up like its labouring there is a clog in ther hose. Do this with every inlet and listen for the same. If the vac. is hot it will not turn back on until it cools. Hope this helps, if not let me know. Chris

My vacuum worked just fine... i went in another room to use it and now it won't turn on no matter what outlet i use!


If it works in the other room's outlets, I would think that it might be tripping the circuit breaker for the room it isn't working in. Check your circuit breakers.

No it dosen't. I fix central vacs all the time and relays usally don't do what you described. They either go out all the way and won't turn on or they will trip and you will have to push the breaker back in. What is probably happening is you have a short in your low voltage wiring. this wiring goes from the hose handle all the way back to the unit (you can see the two little wires clip in to the side of the unit). My guess is that it is in the hose some where and when you turn it a certain way it shorts and the unit turns off. It can be hard to find shorts sometimes so you might need to call an expert.

My Hoover Windtunnel blew the circuit breaker today, and did so again after I reset the breaker and turned off the only other appliance on that circuit. Any advice? Thanks from GrGrandma in Fremont


There could be a problem with the vac, the only way to know is to use an ammeter and test the current draw of the unit. If the vac is ok, the breaker could be failing. Plug the vac into another receptacle on a different breaker and see if it still trips the breaker; if it does, then have the vac checked out

Hoover Wind Tunnel bagless- issue with turning on


Have you tried to plug the vaccuum in another outlet that is on another breaker? It could be the vaccuum tripped the breaker. Turn the breaker back on. The manual mentions the thermal protector could have been activated. If this happened it resets and your vac should run after 30 minutes. I have a Widepath Tempo and it has tripped the surge protector. If this is the problem try turning some things off that are also on that breaker/outlet, or unplug them when you use the vac.

Premalite vac brush stopped turning


Not familiar with thi sbrand, but a reset is for when the brushes get jammed pr stalled, it will trip the reset. Make sure that the brsuh roll turns easily, also for a broken belt and/or bad brush roll. Some resets are for when the vac motor over heats, it will trip saving the motor. Usually this is for a jammed brush roll or a clog.
