12 Inch Pigtail Cord Hose Option

We have a Beam Model 287c that was installed in 1993. It is working fine but the hose needs to be replaced. Your hose looks like it will work but our hose has about a 12 inch pigtail. It looks like the direct connect would fit our outlets but how can I tell? Or do I have to get the 8 foot long pigtail and tie up 7 feet of it? thank you, Charles Landgraf Anacortes, WA


If the wall end of your hose has a short pigtail then yes, you will need an Beam Electric Hose w/8ft Pigtail Cord and keep the majority of it bundled up. If your hose is corded, a direct connect electric hose will not work unless your inlets have two small holes above or below your main hole opening (pictured here). If so, our Beam Electric Direct Connect Hose is compatible.

189D and Rugmaster Compatible?

I have a Beam built in vacuum model#189S, serial number 920100229 and a Beam Rugmaster Plus eletric brush with a three prong electic connector. I need a new 30' hose with a pigtail wall connector and a three prong power connector. I looked at your 30' hose with the three prong adapter and I want to be sure this will work with my system before I order it. Thanks in advance for your response. Sincerely; Bob Denton North Port FL 34287


Our Electric Hose for Beam is for the outdated Beam 3-prong cords (they are no longer made with 3 prongs but 2). The hose comes with two high quality adaptors. One of the benefits of the new hose is you are ready for a new powerful electric power head such as the Stealth - when you need it.

189D Vacuum Hose?

I need a new handle and hose for a Beam model# 189D; which should I buy? Bob Woolwich Twp, NJ


There are several hoses you could have that all work with your model. Hoses are not model specific but rather carpet brush specific. And that boils down to 110 volts needed or not - does your carpet brush have a cord coming out the back of it? If so, you will need this electric hose. If not, then you can purchase any Low Voltage or Basic Hose.

2-Prongs, BM 1393 Brush

I need to replace a beam hose that the electric 2 prong connector burned-out. The carpet beater attachment part number is BM 1393...... Which hose will work for me? Paula Marietta GA

A.B. 27 Hose Replacement

I have hose Model A.B.27 LR82648 E56267 that came with my Eureka Boss Plus central vac (model CV1801G). There is a break in the electrical wire in the hose and I need to replace it. Can you recommend an appropriate hose? I have a Eureka Power Head attachment (model E1393, 120V, 2.5A) that I do not want to replace at this time.


Our Electric Hose for Eureka (or Beam, same hose) is compatible with your Eureka power head attachment. Simply choose the length and the wall end termination and you are done.

A.B. 27 LR82648 E56267 Replacement Hose Option

I have a CEN-TEC Model CT14 Power brush with a hose base model A.B. 27 LR82648 E56267 3.5 amp 120V. Do you have a hose to replace it? Thanks. Dan in Collinsville, IL

A.B.27 LR82648 E56267 Hose Parts

I have hose Model A.B.27 LR82648 E56267. The electic cord has failed inside the wall-end moulding into which the two pins which conduct power into the hose itself are inserted. The power conductors within the hose itself are fine. Do you sell a replacement electric cord assembly only, which is an exact duplicate of the original and can be installed into the existing hose without modification? Thank you. Peter Hume Peterborough, Ontario


Yes, we sell the wall end connection replacements. They have a molded-in diode fuse that can go bad.

Beam 199D Replacement Hose

I have a model 199D Beam unit. I need a replacement hose. Which hose do I need and how much does it cost? Thanks, Ron in Morris, Alabama Also, does it come with the cloth cover?


If your current hose handle has a 2-prong female receptacle, you will need to choose one of the hoses listed here: 2-Prong Electric Hose Options. If your current hose has a 3-prong female receptacle, you will need to choose one of the hoses listed here: 3-Prong Electric Hose Options. Simply choose between a 30 foot or 35 foot hose length and whether you need a 8ft corded/pigtail hose end connection. The hose covers are sold separately and can be found here: Hose Cover Options

Beam Hose With Intermittent Power To Brush

Beam Butler brush BM1197, AB 27 electric Total Control hose, 3 prong. Brush started to go on and off. Hold hose bent away from the handle and it works. Then it quit working altogether. Seems like the problem is in the hose where it connects to the handle. We found white wire crimped flat (factory). 4 holes in hose with metal inside. 4 wires plug in. Are these the rings you were talking about? We pushed wires in, but still no power to the brush head & no light either.Where could the problem be? The hose or the handle?


You most likely have a short in the hose itself that cannot be repaired. You can replace your existing hose with our Electric Hose for Beam which includes adapter for the outdated 3-prong cord configuration. You can also upgrade the brush and purchase a new kit such as our Stealth Electric Kit or our Ace Electric Kit. When the kit is purchased, the individual items are discounted for the complete set.

Beam Model BCF 27 Replacement

We have a Beam Model BCF 27 direct connect hose - which replacement hose do I need? Also need a new wood/ceramic floor attachment and round brush. Thanks for your help.


Our Electric Direct Connect Hose for Beam will replace the Beam BCF 27 direct connect hose. Replacement electric hoses are available in both 30 and 35 foot lengths.

Beam Models

I need a replacemnt vacuum hose for Beam Heavy Duty Vacuum Model 294. Can you give me the appropriate part number to reorder and any additional accessories (pligs, adaptors, etc) that I will need. Thanks John


Several hose and tool sets were used with the Beam 294. If your vacuum head nozzle has an electric cord that runs up the metal wands and then into the hose handle, you can select from our Electric Hose For Beam. Simply choose a 30 foot or 35 foot hose length and whether you need a 8ft corded/pigtail or direct connect hose end connection. Please note: We do not carry replacement hoses for the Beam Q or Solaire series.

Beam Series X-Y Model B C F 27 BCE CCE FCE 27CE Hose

I have the Beam Series X-Y Model B C F 27 BCE CCE FCE 27CE. That is what is on the end of the hose with the two prongs that goes into the wall outlet. The other end has the hose handle that with the nose that inserts into the pipe that holds the attachment. The handle has come loose from the nose so that when you pull back on the handle, the handle comes off the nose. Is this repairable or do I have to buy a new handle? Dave K


The difference between available handles is how far back the pin connection is on the hose handle. If you have a 3-pin connection you'll actually have to replace the entire hose with our Electric Hose for Beam.

BM1372 Hose Replacement Option

I have a BM1372 sweeper unit. Apparently, the conductor in the hose has an intermittant opening--it operates when the hose is wiggled into the exact right position. I guess I need a new hose? Which hose fits the BM1372 Type AA? Thanks, John, Albany, GA


Our Beam Electric Hose will work great with your BM 1372 sweeper unit and includes adaptors to accommodate the outdate 3-prong configuration.

Broken Prong - Wall End

I have a Beam 189 Classic. One of the prongs on the hose where it plugs into ElectraValve came off. The vacuum still works,do I need to replace the connector. Can I just replace the connector on end of hose or do I have to buy new hose? Is it ok to use vacuum with just one prong? What is prong for? Thank You


You need both prongs in tact in order for the electric carpet sweeper to function properly. We carry Replacement Fuse Plugs to remedy this issue. Note that the connections you will have to deal with may require some wire splicing since the manufacturer changed these connections recently and there are no more kits for the older hoses.

Compatible With Beam Serenity Series?

Is this compatible for the Beam Central Vac system (serenity series) Stacy, Wisconsin


Yes, our Electric Hose For Beam is compatible with Serenity and the others except the latest Q series. You can view all of our available hose options on the Beam Electric Hose page on our website.

Continuity Broken

I have a less than three year old Beam electric hose that will not power my rug sweeper. I have check continuity and one of the connections does not go through. Is there anything I can do short of replacing the entire hose such as replacing the ends? Thanks Jim - Tucson AZ


You can replace the Switch Assembly (wiring harness and switch in the hose handle) and the wall end cord or pronged plug, which can be found on our Hose Parts page.

Cutting In and Out

I have a 10 year old 35'hose w/ pigtail. The power frequently cuts out no matter what wall outlet I use. I assume there is a kink in the hose and the hose should be replaced. Is this what you recommend ? If I get a new hose, will the low voltage hose w/o the pig tail still work. I never use the attachment requiring the pigtail. Joe, Wilmington, DE


It may be the inner connection of the hose in the handle. There are fingers that may need to be bent a little so they have proper pressure. Also, there are metal rings (fingers rest on them) and their connection is to a metal end of a wire under the ring. If the rings spin too easy then that connection needs help. Simply slide the rings off and you'll see how to bend up the metal on the wire's end. That said though, you really only need a Low Voltage Hose since you don't use the electricity. The low votlage hose is compatible with your system and tools.

Electric Hose for Beam and Eureka

Will this fit a Beam or Eureka central vac?


Yes, and it comes with adaptors to fit outdated styles of the hose to carpet brush connection.

Finding a Short on Old Hose

I have a Beam B1500 that's about 5 years old - 2 prong electrical connection on a pigtail. The power head and light stops intermitently when cleaning (carpet, hardwood or tile), if I'm patient for a couple of seconds it powers back up. It sometimes feels like it needs to "warm up" to run better. I suspect I have a broken cable somewhere on the electrical feed to the brush head. I don't believe it's in the last connector to the head as when I wiggle it it has no effect on the power head. I cannot make it go on or off when I flex the hose - any thoughts on where the problem maybe? I'd hate to buy a new hose only to find it didn't cure the problem.

Carefully play with each connection point while it is running, twisting, pulling, pushing, rotating, while leaving the rest of it still. You need to find the short this way.

Hose Extension To Add 8-feet?

Is it possible to add a extension, let's say 8', to an existing Beam hose? Thanks Bob


We carry a 12' Hose Extension that works with corded electric hoses, low voltage hose, and basic hoses. This extension is NOT compatible with an electric direct connect hose.

Low Voltage Hose Handle Replacement

Hello. The handle on my low voltage Beam hose (model AB 27) is cracked and broken. Can I purchase a replacement handle?


Yes, we carry replacement low voltage handles for industry-standard hoses. Please review the details on our Low Voltage Handle Replacement to confirm compatibility.

Need Handle Only

I have an older Beam Rugmaster Plus with a broken plastic gas pump handle. Your handle HP200 looks exactly like the handle I am trying to replace, but the description says it does not fit Beam Rugmaster hoses. Is this all Beam Rugmaster hoses or just newer models? (Pigtail hose, model AB27, power head model BM1393). Thanks for the help.

It seems like our hose handle will fit but it will not match up to the wand connection on the RugMaster. It will fit the hose but not the wands. The new one is a further distance back. Plus, if your cord on the RugMaster is three pin then that hose and handle are obsolete. You'd need to buy a new Beam Electric Hose which comes with adapters and later buy a new vacuum head that will not need adapters, just a new wand.

Need Handle Receptacle For AB27 Hose

I have a Beam AB27. The female receptacle on the handle has worn out. It has 3 holes, but the male connector only use 2 prongs, and after viewing the inside of the handle, it's only wired for 2 prongs. Is it possible to purchase just this female receptacle?


The receptacle is not sold alone. However, you can purchase the complete Switch Assembly For Gas Pump Handle #352GS.

Non-Electric Hose Needed

I have a Beam central vac Model 189D and need a new 36' hose. The wall plug-in end does not have prongs but rather is totally plastic and connects against plastic on the wall outlet.(again,no prongs) All of the replacement hoses pictured seem to have prongs. What hose will replace my non-prong non electric cord hose. Thanks.....Norm, Florida


You need the low voltage hose as opposed to an electric hose. You may view details and hose length options on the Low Voltage Hose page on our website.

On/off Hose from Switch on Handle?

My unit is a Beam Vauum system model #189S and a Beam Rugmaster Plus electric brush with a three prong electic connector. When I plug the original hose into the wall outlet the power unit does not turn on until I hit the "ON" switch on the hose handle. A hose that I got form Beam and since returned does not work the same way. If I plug it into the wall outlet the power unit goes on regardless of the three way switch setting on the hose handle. Will your hose works same as my original hose? Bob Denton, North port, FL 34287


Yes, the hose will turn on/off from the switch on the handle when plugged into any Beam inlet, outlet, or vacuum port. Plese ensure to put the hose in so that the cord, which is attached to the hose end on corded hoses , is up at 12 o'clock or down at 6 o'clock. Otherwise the vacuum will start when plugged in regardless of the switch position.

Repair Old Beam Hose Metal Prong?

I have a broken prong on my hose for the carpet function. I was wondering if I could just replace the prong portion instead of buying the entire hose? Model #A.B. 27 LR82648. Thanks. Vicki, Santa Maria


You can replace the broken prong on the wall end of the hose but please be beware that they changed the internal connection so it requires very fine skill to strip wire, crimp, and modify very small parts. Please review our Fuse Plug Replacement for additional details and installation instructions.

Replacement Brush Belt For B1500

We have a Beam Central Vac with an Imperial Powerbrush which was installed in 2005 by previous owners. The power head is B 1500 with S/N 100519334. The belt on the powerbrush has broken. Please inform me what belt would work to purchase. Robert Ashfield, MA 01330


Please compare the measurements of the belts listed on our website to determine which will be the perfect fit. Power Brush Belt Options

Rugmaster Not Working Well

I have the beam189D and rugmaster plus, lately when I vacuum I feel like the carpet is not getting cleaned. Not everything gets picked up as if the brush is not working properly or the unit itself lost suction power. Any advice? thank you


We suggest testing the system from the ground up using our Troubleshooting Flowchart. We certainly think that if the system checks out fine then the hose and nozzle kit need to be replaced with either our Complete 360 Electric Kit or our Ace Electric Kit options.

Short in Old Hose

Patti in Tulsa My Beam Total Control hose seems to have a short in it when using the brush. If you bend the hose, it would still work, then cut off. Now it won't work at all when using the brush. Could you let me know what part I need to repair it? Purchased in 2000. Power head is Beam Butler, SN#0039003458 Model #BM1197. Hose has the electric cord attached, not direct connect. Hose model #A.B.27 LR82648 E56267 are on the hose end that plugs into the wall.Thanks

You may be able to fix it. There are contacts in the hose that may not be working. You'll see brass rings that have a contact on top and under them. Each one has to have some good pressure on it. Also, since it was shorting, the cord on the end may have shorted out. There is a hidden diode in the plug. This cord is replaceable. If you want to replace the hose you can buy this one or look elsewhere for the Total Control but it may not be made any longer.

Short in the Hose? Or Bad Motor in Unit?

I have a 30 foot electric hose. Every other time I use it, it throws the circuit breaker in our basement. The electrical system in our house checks out fine, plus it doesn't seem to matter what plug I use. Is there a short in the hose causing this, and what can be done about it? I would prefer not to spend $200 on a new hose when this one is less than 4 years old. Thank you-- Shary, Roanoke, VA


Actually, it sounds like your motor is going bad. If it is the same circuit that pops, it indicates your vacuum unit's motor is at fault. You probably have it on a 15 amp circuit so it is popping the home breaker on the unit breaker. The motor will eventually stop working but you can replace it now to avoid being without a vacuum when it does eventually give out. Please look up your brand and model our website to locate the proper replacement motor.

Short Metal Tube Replacement?

I have Beam 2900 with the Serenity hose & powerhead. The end of the hose that slides into the wands with the button-lock is my problem. I accidently started to suck up a necktie, so of course I cut the power but in pulling the tie back out it was stuck. So I pulled harder and got it. What I didn't realize is that it was caught on the button lock with in the hose. We have tried to bend it back to it's original position but of course it's just not as tight and snug as it should be. Can I replace just that tube that in the handle and NOT the whole handle? Kathie in Hawaii


Yes, you can replace the tube with our Gas Pump Handle Metal Stub Assembly.

Suction Control Too?

I am looking to upgrade our beam vacuum with a 110 volt electric brush kit & hose. It is currently a low voltage hose. Does the new hose with the 110 voltage also has the low voltage wire to turn the unit on?

Yes, all electric kits have the low voltage control at the hose handle as well as the 110 volt control. They are our best kits and are fully featured.

Switch Replacement Options For A.B. 27 LR82648 Hose?

I have a hose Model A.B.27 LR82648. The electic switch in the handle is intermittent in the position for both suction and brush. The position for suction only is OK. I have cleaned by air pressure to get dust out but the switch works only sometimes and you have to tap it to get it to work other times. There appears to be no other short or broken connection in the hose. Do you sell a replacement switch assembly for the handle only, which is an exact duplicate of the original and can be installed into the existing handle. I've seen assembly replacements for newer models like CH515 and CH 615 that visually look correct but don't know if they would work. Thanks. Walt El Cajon, CA


We carry two switch replacement options for the A.B.27 LR82648 hose: Gas Pump Handle Switch Assembly #352GS and Pistol Grip Switch Assmbly #352S.

Upgrade to Electric?

Can I purchase an electric hose when this is not my original system? I have the lower voltage unit and would prefer something stronger. I am trying to find a second hose and set of tools to keep in the upstairs of my home instead of dragging the hose up and down the stairs. (I vacuum a lot!) Jenn Highland Mills, NY


Upgrading to an electric hose and vacuum tool kit is a fantastic improvement. Our most popular is the Stealth Electric Kit and our Ace Electric Kit. Simply choose from a 30 foot or 35 foot length option and whether you need a 8ft corded/pigtail cord or direct connect hose end.

Weight of All Hoses

Could you tell me if there is much difference in weight between a 30 foot electric hose, a low voltage hose, and a non-electric hose?

Weight for 30ft hoses: Electric is 8.85 lbs, Low Voltage is 6.90 lbs, and the Basic is actually more than the Low Voltage coming in at 7.45 lbs.

What Hose Option Replaces My Old 3-Prong Connection?

Beam AB27 power hose replacement--I want to be sure i'm buying the right replacement hose--which has a 3-way switch--Off, on vac only, on-powerhead, with a 3-prong connector to gas-handle control. I cannot tell for sure from descriptions on the website if the replacement hoses do this with direct 2-prong connect to wall outlet. Many thanks.


The 3-prong version is no longer supported. Our Electric Hose for Beam includes two adapters to enusre a proper fit.
