Try taking out the bag and checking to see if the inlet port onthe bottom of the inside of the bag bay is giving any sucion or if you can feel air rushing past your fingers. if there is then there is eiher a full bag, or a clog in oneo f the inlet ports going to the bag that the vacuum cannot clear. also make sure your filters are clear of debree and clean.

Eureka Optima Lightweight suction weak on bare floor, hose only works when dial is turn to floor?


I think it is normal. My favorite setting is the dial is turned to bare floor. If you set your vacuum to hose, then you need to adjust the height (do not set the dial to the bare floor).

Eureka Smart Vac The Boss no suction from either setting. I have taken it apart trying to see if it was clogged but it isn't. Checked the hose it is not sliced.


Remove the bag cover and feel for suction above the motor. If their is suction there then check the bag compartment is sealed. You can drop a coin down the hose to check for blockages all the way to where the bag attaches.

Eureka vaccuum blowing out and not sucking in


Hi There,
I am going to assume you are talking about a Eureka upright vacuum.
The cause for this is generally either
A) Broken Belt - Which you can easily fix by changing belt
or
B) Blockage in the hose somewhere - Basically test the suction with the machine turned on with you attachment hose and see if you have suction. If you do check the belt and make sure you clear out any muck left around the roller.
If you need Eureka vacuum belts go to VacuumSpot.com.au

Vacuum shoots dirt or whatever it has just vacuumed out the back of the vacuum. I checked and cleaned the filter and the vacuum bag and it still leaves dirt behind the vacuum.


Good morning,

If you've checked both the bag and the filter, the next step would to check for any clogs.

I will detail what you will need to do below, or you can always reference your Owner's Guide (check: How to Check and Clear Hose Blockages)
http://www.eureka.com/service/manuals/77418_r2.pdf

Step 1: Remove hose from hose retainer on the base and check suction at end of hose - if little or no suction, check dust cup. Empty if needed. If no improvement, proceed to step 2.
(Make sure you turn off the switch and unplug the unit before proceeding to step 2)

Step 2: Remove electrical cord from cord hooks. Disconnect the clear tube by unscrewing the 2 screws, then lift away from cleaner. Check for any obstructions that may be in the tube or hose. Any obstructions can be removed by using a blunt instrument to clear the tube or hose (I will sometimes you a bent hanger or a retractable pointer). Flexing the hose may help loosen the blockage. After clearing blockage, reverse above steps to reassemble unitpcfloy86_0.jpg.

I hope this helps. If so, please give this solution a thumbs up!
Have a good day

No suction when vacuuming, but suction is good when using hose


check for blockage from where the hose sets in its
holder to the roller brush. Also see if the brush is
turning, the belt maybe broken.

Eureka rm 4480


Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au . Unless there is a bad sound coming from your vacuum i would suggest you have a blockage. This machine is prone to getting blockages in 3 different places.
  1. at the base behind the brush.
  2. Inside the main suction hose - this should be removeable so you can drop a small coin through. If it doesnt fall easily viola blockage found.
  3. Where the dirt enteras the chamber or bag.
Basically start by removing all hoses and filters and turn machine on put your hand over all inlet and exit points provided you can feel airflow at one of these points work backwards from there and identify the point at which you no longer feel airflow.
HAPPY vacuuming !

Eureka Enviro Vac Model 4470 Not Sucking


First, check to see if there is suction without the hose on the base. If not, and there is no blockage, the problem is likely a damaged impeller, the small fan that makes the suction. That will have to be replaced.
