Question about Eureka 2991AVZ Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Open Question

On/off switch we have two of these vacuums at work, and both of there on/off switches dont work too well. its hard to explain, but when u normally turn it on or off theres a little resistance in the switch and you hear a click, with both of ours the switch moves freely back and forth from on to off, no resisntace, no click, and the machine doesnt stay on, or off for that matter. the switch just moves back and forth.

The screws are Torx head screws. If you don't have most places that sell tools should have them.

SOURCE: I purchased a Eureka C4910

Good day!


Normally when the motor is easily moved back and forth means that it have a proper lubrication,proper alignment and no clogs.

When the motor and the belt is OK the problem could be on electrical wiring and switch.

If found electrical switch burned out you need to replaced it because when the switch is burn the contact of that switch is open even you turn it ON.that's why the motor is not function because the voltage is not pass through the circuit because of open switch.You need to replaced it.
And check some fuses if any and other burned electrical wire.Replaced it also.

Thank you and don't forget to rate my answer.

Dyson DC07 will not turn on


If the fuse in the plug is good, then this could be a faulty cable or switch, but could also be a faulty motor.
The motor also has a built in over-current protection device which normally automatically resets itself, but if the motor has a serious fault or the over-current device itself is faulty then this could be the cause.
Both the switch and motor are available quite cheaply on eBay2_bing.gif, but fitting new ones requires good DIY skills (especially the motor), and some unusual tools (Torx drivers2_bing.gif).
Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com which has some great info on repairing your machine, but if you dont feel you can repair it yourself, time to call a vacuum repairer or the Dyson helpline

The 'on' button isn't working/sticking


The ratchet mechanism within the power switch has failed.

There is no "fix" for this other than to repalce the switch with a new one.
If you have good DIY skills and tools, and feel competent to work on electrical devices, then it is possible to do this yourself, however Dyson dont make it easy !
The plastic switch covers (the bit you actually press) are normally held in place by a hidden plastic tag that is released using a narrow, flat tool such as a very small screwdriver or flat file. If you look very carefully at the switch cover, you should be able to see a very small "slot" on one side in to which you place the flat tool and "feel" for the tag. Once the swicth cover is removed, you can then access the switch.
Replacement switches are normally available on eBay.

If all this sounds a bit daunting, take it to a repair shop, or call Dyson helpline.

N/D switch came out of housing


If the pedal shaft came out - it may be very hard to install it back properly and most likelly it will fall out again soon. You may need to get another N/D pedal assembly. To buy it you can go HERE. If you want to try to get it back together - go HERE and scroll down. You will see the section that explains how the pedal works so it will give you an idea how you have to assemble it.

Good Luck,

Roller not spinning on hard floors


after 2 weeks it should be still under warranty. but my guess is you have hair etc wrapped around the brush tip vac so you can see brush(es) remove all string,hair etc... from around the brush area (may have to remove bottom to get all the hair etc... stuck around it. it also may have been jammed up pretty tight and continued use could snap the belt or burn out motor

My vacuum doesn't **** at all...


Hi umanski... release the hoover as though you were to use it normally... please turn the hoover upside down.. it should be lying flat to the floor now.... being careful that you dont have your fingers or anything else in the way... switch the hoover on.... is the brush roller spinning?

If not it is your brush belt has gone and needs replacing, which is fairly straightforward. Expect to pay approx £4-7 for genuine dyson belts (2).. though you can get generic copies for about £2.

Does this solve your prob, if not let me know.

regards Faggly

Power drive


it could be but i dont have enough info to really help. if the brush isnt working it could be power from the handle, it could be a bad motor, it could be even as simple as something is tangled up in the brush and that will stop it from turning but you can normally smell burning rubber when this happens from the belt slipping. please give me more information. so i may help. thank you james klgr
