How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?

Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced Vacuum Technicians :

Eureka vacuum cleaners have been known for their excellent service and reliability in cleaning floors, carpets, rugs, upholstery and drapery for more than 100 years.
You will find your model number on a metallic silver sticker. It`s usually located on the back or bottom of the vacuum cleaner.
Eureka is a brand owned by Chinese company Midea Group that manufactures vacuum cleaners, including uprights, cordless, canisters, sticks and handhelds.
Founded in 1909 in Detroit, Michigan Eureka vacuums have been in American`s homes for more than a century. Now we`re building on that experience with innovative cleaning technology to help you clean for years to come.
Our Verdict. The Dyson Ball Animal 2 and the Eureka FloorRover are both excellent options for cleaning pet hair, though the Dyson has a couple of advantages. The Dyson is slightly easier to maintain and has no recurring costs, while the Eureka has a HEPA filter that needs replacing on occasion.
The Eureka is better overall on bare floors and high-pile carpets, while the Shark generally performs better on low-pile carpets. That said, the Shark can be used in a handheld configuration, so it`s more suited to cleaning stairs or cars than the Eureka.
Eureka products are made available from our Wuxi, China; Gothenburg, Sweden; and Ohio, USA stock. Our packing and boxes has been carefully designed for best product identification and to minimize logistic and retail handling costs.
In 1909, real estate auctioneer Fred Wardell of Detroit, Michigan, acquired several patents for emerging vacuum cleaner technology and started up the Eureka Company. In 1910 he incorporated the company in Michigan.
The best vacuum ever constructed on Earth was done at CERN at reported to achieve a density of about 1000 atoms per cubic centimeter. While this is astonishingly low, it is still over 2 million times more dense than interstellar space!
Asthmatic American inventor James Spangler sold his idea for an electric broomstick-like cleaner—with cloth filter and dust-collection bag attached to the long handle—to William Hoover in 1908. His invention proved to be arguably the first truly practicable domestic vacuum cleaner.
Dyson invested £2.5 billion in research and development.

While you might feel that this is the reason their products are expensive, you`re highly mistaken. This investment was mainly to accommodate a centre for their 1,200 employees, 22 laboratories, prototyping space, and areas for collaborative work.

Ultimately, unlike bagged vacuum cleaners, the performance of Dyson machines won`t be compromised the more you vacuum. Our machines are engineered with six layers of advanced whole machine filtration, which means that we capture 99.97% of microns as small as 0.3 microns.
TLDR: Roomba is better, but Shark offer better value.

This is also true of their other products. We liked Roomba`s latest robot, the s9+, but with 90% it had a couple of flaws that kept it from the top spot. It was a similar story with the Shark IQ Robot XL, which scored 80%.

What causes my eureka boss vac to smell bad – Eureka Smartvac 4870 Bagged Upright Vacuum
ANSWER : Clean it out with lemom juice

Looking for Eureka belt 70646A for a Eureka The Boss upright
ANSWER : I just replaced the belt on my Eureka The Boss Smart Vac (Model 4870D). I purchased a namebrand Eureka R belt from a local vendor. I did my best to follow the instructions printed on the bottom of the machine. I turned on the vacuum cleaner and the belt brush was spinning! I dropped it into vacuuming floor mode and the belt wouldn’t spin no matter what level I put it on.
.
.I called the manufacturer (1-800-282-2886) and spoke with a very nice woman on the phone. While I was speaking with her I noticed that a silver screw was lodged within the “brush roll control” yellow selector switch. With some shaking it became dislodged and I was able to put the “brush roll control” into the hard floors setting and turn the “carpet height adjustment” all the way to the right, so that it was facing the word “low.” I then followed the instructions for replacing the belt again.. (1) remove base plate (2) remove brush roll (3) place new belt around motor shaft and then around brush roll (4) insert left side of brush roll before right side (5) rotate brush roll to be sure belt is centered (6) replace base plate, making sure to insert under 4 little tabs before securing with screws.
.
.It appears that it is very important that the carpet height and brush control adjustment are set to their highest point possible (hardwood setting) in order to get the brush to roll in a carpet setting.
.
.″R” is the correct belt for the 4870 and should be correct for all other 4800 models.
.
.Thank you for posting your problem to this website. If I hadn’t seen that others were having trouble, I would have just given up. I hope this long post helps someone that was in my situation.

.Tear in Eureka Upright “The Boss” 4870
.Posted by kdunnett on Jun 07, 2008
.I have a tear in the hose of an upright Eureka “The Boss” 4870 vacuum. I cannot find how to release the parts I need to get the hose out and put in a new hose (which I already have) I’ve searched the Eureka site and the owner’s manual – nothing about how to replace the hose itself. Thanks in advance.
.
.Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Eureka 431A Optima Bagless Upright Vacuum. In answer to your question, the owner’s manual may or may not give an example to install the hose only, but on most vacuums the hose sometimes will screw in to the hose cuff on both ends unless if it is a hose assm then it will then twist and turn. Check with the
Eureka website and have them send out a schematic and owner’s manual for you so that you can install your hose properly. Sometimes you have to place hose glue on the end of each side in order for the hose to screw in properly. the website address will be listed below and they certainly should supply you with the owners’ manual and maybe a schematic of the parts breakdown that also may help. If not; check with your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

It is not clear how to access the front spool on a Eureka ‘Boss – smartvac’ 4870K vacuum cleaner, when replacing the belt. Trying to force the flimsy black plastic lever attached to the shiny silver spool where the front end of the belt appears as if it should go, would cause breakage.
ANSWER : The shiny spool is the mechanism that stops the brushroll (brushroll control). The belt only slips around the brushroll, and the motor spindle.
