Great motor, direct replacement for my Beam House vacuum. Looks and build exactly like the original motor that had a bad bearing. This is a complete replacement, the only thing to note is you will need to attach new wire terminals onto the new wires for a direct plug into your Beam Vacuum.

My last motor lasted exactly 20 years. I?d be happy to get the same out of this one.
Easy to install. Saved me a little $$$ ($100-$300 depending on where I buy it)
Even seems a little quieter.
Glad I researched and found you guys on-line.
