Frequently asked questions

Have questions? We’re here to help

Do I need to stick with the Beam brand to replace my central vacuum?

No, you can replace your Beam central vacuum with any brand. Newer models may offer better filtration, quality, and value. Choose based on desired features like suction power, quality, warranty, and materials. Check out our VacuMaid, CanaVac, and DuoVac central vacuum units.

Will replacing my Beam central vacuum require changes to my home setup?

No changes are needed for your home's inlets or attachments. You simply install a new unit and connect it to the existing intake line. For assistance, contact us at 


Is replacing my Beam central vacuum unit something I can do myself?

Yes, installation is easy and takes about 15-20 minutes. Disconnect your old Beam unit, remove it, and mount the new unit with its bracket. Reconnect the intake line and low-voltage wires, then power up the new vacuum. A professional installer is not required, but we would be happy to answer any questions you have. Feel free to call us at 1-833-382-2886.

What should I do if my Beam central vacuum unit won't start?

Here are the steps to troubleshoot starting issues with your Beam central vacuum unit:

1. Begin by flipping the switch on the side of the unit to the manual position. The unit should power on immediately. If it does, move to step 2. If not, contact us at 1-833-382-2886 for assistance.

2. Disconnect the low-voltage wires from your vacuum unit.

3. Ensure the unit's side switch is set to Auto and that its power cord is connected to a power outlet. It's also wise to check if the circuit breaker or fuse for the outlet hasn't been tripped.

4. Use needle-nose pliers to gently squeeze inside the port where you disconnected the low-voltage wires. If the unit powers on, reconnect the wires and proceed to step 5. Should the unit fail to start, reach out to us.

5. Check inside each wall valve (where the hose connects) for two contact pins. These pins should contact the metal ring on the hose's end when inserted. Beginning with the valve nearest to the unit, open the valve door and use a spoon or a quarter to touch both pins at once. If the unit starts, proceed to the next valve until all are checked. If the unit fails to start at any point, contact us for help.

6. After following the above steps, try inserting your hose into a wall valve. If the unit or powerhead doesn't activate, contact us at 1-833-382-2886 for assistance.

Remember: Always start troubleshooting at the vacuum and work your way back to the hose. Any failure points you encounter will likely indicate where the issue resides.

What should I do if my Beam central vacuum unit won't turn off?

To troubleshoot a Beam central vacuum unit that remains on:

1. Verify that the unit is set to Auto mode and ensure no hoses are connected to any wall valves.

2. Disconnect the low-voltage wire at the side of the unit. If the unit keeps running, the issue lies with a faulty relay on the circuit board, necessitating a replacement of the entire board. However, if the unit stops when you disconnect the low-voltage wire, it indicates a short or pinch in the low-voltage wiring within your system. In this case, contact us at 1-833-382-2885.

What should I do if my Beam central vacuum system is clogged?

Here's how to address a clogged built-in vacuum system:

1. Empty the dirt container.

2. Use the manual switch on the side of the unit to activate the unit.

3. Begin with the wall valve nearest to the unit, open its door, and release a tissue from your hand into it. If the tissue travels back to the dirt container, move on to the next valve. Should the tissue not reach the dirt container at any valve, it's possible there's a blockage. You can attempt to clear the blockage by using a different vacuum to create suction at this valve, or you can contact us at 1-833-382-2886.
