Carbon Dust Everywhere
Hi, I have a 7 year old beam central vac system, have recently replaced the brushes, and have noticed a terrific amount of carbon dust in the room that the power unit is situated in, and i mean terrific, everything in the room is black. It was bad before we replaced the brushes, but is horrific now, please let me know what the problem could be! We thought maybe it could be the size of the room, it is only about a 8 ft. by 6 ft. room, but I can't see why this should matter. It actually smells in the room of carbon dust. The model is the Beam Classic III. It has a permanent filter which I clean after every time I empty the pail.
Hi Bernice, replacing brushes in a well used motor can cause this. It is not uncommon. We are glad when brushes work out for owners but not surprised when then don't. Old motors need to be replaced. It looks like you will have to buy a new motor. If you bought the brushes from us then please call and we can work out a deal with you.
