Eureka 4870 hose assembly replacement

I cannot figure out how to replace the hose assembly. You cannot take the back of the unit apart as there are some sort of screws that cannot be removed. The assemly will not slide through the narrow hole.

Boy, it's been awhile since I took one of these hoses off, but I think at least one of those plastic hose guide things has to come off in order to remove the hose. Those screws that look like they cannot be removed are probably torx screws which need a T20 torx scredriver that you can get at any hardware store. That is the most common size torx screw that Eureka uses.

Here is a link to the owner's manual in case you need any diagrams for getting the clear tubes off:

Hope this helps. :-)

Tear apart all hoses and make sure no clogging, also take apart to expose motor and make sure their is no dust on motor, this will cause symptoms you are describing, another thing check Impeller fan and make sure the fan is running and not blocked if fan is not working then will need to replace Impeller.

My Eureka The boss Smartvac Model #4870 roller brush won't turn even on the highest setting and the belt smells hot. we took the belt off. How can you tell if it needs replaced?


Just by what you explained I can tell that it needs to be replaced. The belt doesn't have to be broken to need replacing, if it is stretched and worn then it will slip on the motor shaft and not turn the brush roll and get hot. Here is a link to the belts you need and the manual which has instructions:

How do you open a hoover steamvac agility to change the lower hose assembly?


ok. you will need a screwdriver phillips and a pair of ****. this is going to take about an hour. first take off the tanks, nexted on one side of the machine you will see i believe its 8 to 10 screws. (you don't need to take apart the handle) once you take all of them out, there's a plastic plate that the tanks sit on. take this off. (4 screws) got that done, seperate the two pieces.(the handle will come out so you have more space, it will be a tight fix) the haves are apart and you will see the hoses there. take out the big long hose(2 screws hold it on at the top) and at the bottom of this is the short hose that you need to replace. using your **** cut the plastic on either side of the notches on both sides. put the new hose on. then reverse your steps for putting back together. hope this helps out
