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.
Eureka Vacuum Cleaner Company was founded in 1909 in Detroit, Mich. by Toronto, Canada-born real estate auctioneer Fred Wardell (1866-1952) to sell vacuum cleaners for which he had acquired several patents.
Bagless vacuums, as the name suggests, don`t use a replaceable bag that collects the dust and dirt from the surface. A bagless vacuum cleaning machine is compact and uses a dust cup or chamber to store the dust and dirt. The dust cup used in the vacuum cleaner can be easily emptied and cleaned.
Add a few drops of soap or detergent into a bowl of hot water. Submerge the filter and squeeze it so it absorbs the cleaning solution. If the water becomes dirty, empty the bowl and refill with more soapy water. Once the water runs clear after soaking the filter, take it out and rinse the suds away.
This HEPA filter is washable. For optimum performance, change your filters every 6 months.
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.
The Miele Complete C3 is a better overall canister vacuum than the Miele Classic C1. The Complete C3 has a better performance on all surface types, it`s more maneuverable, and it comes with a HEPA filter.
In vacuum handling technology and other applications that operate in the rough vacuum range, the vacuum level is typically measured using direct-reading gauges. Direct-reading gauges can provide an accurate measurement from atmospheric pressure down to about 1 Torr and in some cases lower.

Eureka Boss Capture – bagless upright – green
ANSWER : .Eureka Boss Capture – bagless upright NOISE PROBLEM FIXXED!!!.
.I had the same noise problem as everyone else here and found no solutions on the web. i took the thing apart a few different times to no avail. i read here that it could possibly be the brush bearings but i didn’t believe that was the problem. i removed the brush and spun the bearings in my hand and they seemed to be ok, i didnt feel or hear anything wrong. i looked around the house for something to use to lubricate the bearings but i found nothing. i then remembered the all purpose wonder tool that is olive oil. i carefully added some to brush bearings on both sides and spun them in my hand a little bit and put everything back together. Voala! The vacuum now runs as quiet as the day i first bought it. i no longer feel ashamed to vacuum at 11pm and my neighbors can get some sleep 😀

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.
