There’s a little do it yourselfer in everyone these days, especially as the economy is slowing down and repair jobs are starting to get more expensive. For this reason, and at the request of a customer, we have decided to do a blog post about beam vacuum systems how to replace the neck assembly on your beam q power nozzle.
First you should gather all the tools you will need to do the job, that way you won’t be scrambling for them when you have the power nozzle apart. You will needs a normal flathead screwdriver, a drill with a Phillips screwdriver head, wire cutters, and wire stippers.
Here are the steps to replace the neck on your beam q powernozzle:
Step 1: Turn the powernozzle over and remove the 6 bottom plate screws. There are two located by the wheels, two near the center, and two near the front height adjustment wheels.
Step 2: Now that you’ve removed all of the screws, locate the two tabs at the back of the power nozzle that holds the top plate on. Using your flat head screwdriver, push in lightly on the tabs. You should now be able to remove the top power nozzle cover and should be looking at the internal components.
Step 3: Remove the two smaller screws for the small pc board located on top, move this piece off to the side and make a note on where the wiring goes.
Step 4: Remove the screw that holds the led lights for the height adjustment mechanism. This part will then pull out of the height adjustment, you can set it aside but make another note on where the wiring goes.
Step 5: This is where it may get tricky, you need to remove all of the screws for the plate holding down the power nozzle neck. Since the wires for the motor are also going across the top you may need to release the motor from its base by unscrewing the screws holding it down. Once you release of the screws, and the motor with the wires going across the top, you should be able to access the power nozzle neck. Release the old neck, cutting the wires as close to the right side by the PC board as possible rewire your new neck in, splice the wires in with the old ones using smaller wire nuts. Put the wire nuts in a location that will not interfere with the height adjustment mechanism.
Step 6: Follow the directions backwards to replace all of the internal parts correctly. Your new beam q power nozzle neck is now installed!
