It sounds like you have too much nitrogen in the soil. This will make for a large, lovely plant with no flowers, thus, no beans. Try adding some phosphorous to the soil to help balance it back out. Bone meal is a good source of phosphorous. If you are seeing blossoms but no beans, this article should help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/beans/bean-blossoms-no-pods.htm
