More likely than hose or unit is the wiring going from the unit to the inlets, somewhere its disconnected, check low voltage at cannister by touching the terminals together where they connect to the unit, if the unit turns on, its the wiring, get a pro vac guy in to sort it out

You can test this out by taking a small metal spoon and with the bottom side of the spoon insert it into the vac outlet on the wall. you want to touch the two metal pins inside the vac outlet to test if the unit is the problem or the hose is the problem.

If the unit starts, the hose should have a 3 year warranty on it. I recommend you have your nearest beam dealer check it out.

If the unit does not start, it has a 7 or 10 year warranty, the circuitry should be replaced. Again have your nearest beam dealer check it out.

good luck

I installed the Hoover Wind Tunnel Central Vac in my new home. After connecting the wall outlets and successfully turning on the system from the hose control, I discovered there is lots of air flow t


I would recommend checking your wall outlets where the hose plugs in for any type of clog in the tubing. If the vacuum itself has great suction but when you go to the wall outlets that is probably something in the hose that is stuck. If cleared it will most likely have excellent suction throughout the entire system in the house.

Hoover Model SH80520 starts and won't quit


that's how it's supposed to operate, switch on turns the unit on. switch off turns the unit off. thier is a wire that is connected to the leads on each outlet that turns the unit on when the hose is inserted and the switch is in the off position.

I cant get my hoover vaccum brush to spin


First be sure the switch/circuit breaker on top of the nozzle is on. The brush also will not turn unless the handle is released and tilted back. This model of Hoover has a gear drive to turn the brushes. This was VERY prone to problems, and Hoover discontinued making replacement parts for it several years ago.

I've just installed a hoover central vaccum SH800CA and when i plug the hose in the inlet, it doesn't turn on. It turns on when I turn on the switch on the canister


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.
Post back to say how you are making out

The on off swtich doesn't work on our hoover windtunnel vaccum cleaner. Can it be repaired?


Hi,
If its just the switch then by all means it can be repaired or replaced. If it needs replacement and the part is not available, you could replace it with a generic switch which may need some modification. Alternatively you can bypass the switch with the wiring and turn the machine on and off at the wall outlet.
Best wishes,

Plugged hose on Hoover Windtunnel


you will have to remove the bottom cowling under the vaccum cleaner there are 4 phillips head screws one at each corner when you turn over the vaccum cleaner, take this off and remember how it goes back on. in the area where the hos is there will probably be a clog at that point. remove this and pull hose off and make sure it is not clogged farther up the hose, reinstall and check

Model 116.1260


Need the complete model #, 116.1260*****. I assume this is a built-in system? Yes you have to plug the hose into the wall outlet, and there usually is a switch on the hose handle to turn it on.

Kenmore central vacuum system


There is two possible causes. One you could be plugging in the end of the hose wrong. Make sure the hose end is securely in and in the right position. Second it could be a malfunctioning switch in your handle. Here is a site with a variety of different hose handle switches.
