Door doesn't work properly. I've reordered a new door in metal instead of pvc. I'm planning on returning the pvc door after the replacement door comes in.
(MD Notes: We have reached out to this customer to better understand the issue and to provide a resolution.)
The inlet oval door pvc was fine but did not fit the mounting plates at all. We had to purchase mounting plates locally. We purposely ordered the plates from the same company as the inlet so this wouldn't be a problem but unfortunately it was.
The metal keeper that holds down the foam seal has come loose twice only to find it in the vacuum canister. The last time this happened I crimped it down with a screwdriver and we will see if this worked. Perhaps this inlet sealing mechanism needs a little more R&D or the one I received is faulty.
THE PARTS INSTALLED EASILY, HOWEVER THE HOSE IS NOW A VERY TIGHT FIT. I HAVE SANDED THE END OF THE HOSE DOWN AND SHORTENED IT BY 1/2". THAT HELPED SOME BUT IT IS STILL VERY DIFFICULT TO INSERT THE END FAR ENOUGH TO ACTIVATE THE VACUUM.
These wall plaques were only on the wall for 3 days when they torn around the screw. My old ones had been on there for 15 years, so the new replacements arent like they used to be.
I will give them one more try.
Cheap plastic...not as good as Beam original
the lid has broken off one of these, so i am replacing with another style.
