    Clogging and spitting dirt out.

  • Anonymous Jan 05, 2009

    Spitting dust everywhere.  Not cleaning at all anymore.

  • tomandpatl Jan 24, 2009

    Only 6 months old; had professionally cleaned at a Eureka / Electroluv=x warranty shop; all 3 filters are new; but very limited / no suction and smells "hot". Eureka says is still under warranty but repair shop claims this is not a manufacturer's problem....Suggestions?

MAINTAINING A EUREKA BAGLESS VACUUM


HI, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

Vacuum maintenance is basically a general procedure and requirements for all units, but your Eureka Altima Vacuum can be easily maintained and by doing so properly you will make sure your unit performs at it's maximum capacity and to last longer.

After every use, make sure to empty your unit's dust cup. Allowing for fine dust and debris to rest in your unit's dust cup for a long period may cause your unit to become clogged.

It is recommended to wash and clean your unit's filter screen weekly. To do so, tap your filter screen outdoor to take off any excess dirt and debris and then clean under running water until the water comes out clean. Allow the filter screen to fully dry before inserting it back into the unit.

Foam and cloth filters should also be washed and dried weekly, by following the same steps from cleaning the filter screen. Do not use any soap, dishwasher, dryer or washing machine to do so. Allow your filters to air dry for 24 hours before re-installing them in your Eureka.

Replace your HEPA filter and belts every 6 months. Last, make sure to clear your roller brush of any tangles hair strands or debris monthly and to replace at least every year.

You can purchase direct your replacement belts and HEPA filter from Crucial Vacuum with free shipping and an exclusive 10% coupon for Fixya.com readers, use code: FIXYA10

Eureka Maxima 12 amp vaccum cleaner is not picking what can be done to make it pick up?


remove and clean the filter ( tap and brush filter or use a air compressor to blow out filter ) --- also check the vacume hose near the floor attachment for any dirt and debris that may be clogging the line. this should bring your vacume to full operation.

Kicking out debris


Your vacuum will kick back dirt if there is a clog of anykind, or if the filters are dirty. First check the suction lines for any clogs, if none are found, take out your dirt cup, and take off the filters. Normally there is a foam prefilter covering a paper filter - replace both filters. The reason this happens, is that the filters allow the air flow at a specific rate, creating the suction and they cyclonic action you see when you are picking up debris. I hope this helps.

Vacuum is sucking but dirt is just shooting out behind the vacuum


I bought this same vacuum and have all the same problems. It seems it is always the filter but if it out and use the air hose and clean it it really really well then it sucks really well it will pick up anything but who wants to always do this. As one person asked about the bare floors not working well I read on another blog that company knows it does not work well on barefloors but has failed to metion this. One more thing besides the clog always being in the back were the hose connects I always find a clog in the yellow part above the canister. I always pull out so much crap there. Oh sorry one more thing I found that helped with the power was that I completely took the duster part completely off and just use the hose. Hope you have better luck than I do or did..

Spinning debris in cup


If the 2 stage filters inside the bin chamber have not been washed then they will need to be - they sound like they are clogged or somewhere there is dirt which is blocking up the system. Also check the side part duster to ensure that the airways are not clogged with dirt.

When you turn the machine on, have a look to see if the moving brush is actually spinning. Then switch off and remove the base plate to see if anything is clogged in the main dirt channel which is usually located on the left or right hand side - where the dirt goes in from the floor.

This model is based on an Electrolux model in the UK which can be notorious for clogging dust. Check the hoses at the bottom where they come from the main dust bin and the air ways to check no dust is stuck.

Dust is flying!!


Bad filters could be the problem. They need to be replaced, some every 3 months or so. Also a clog in the hose or the dirt inlet down by the brush roll.

Self-propelled windtunnel bagless


Either the inlet down by the brush roll is clogged, or the hose is clogged. Check that out and if you still have a problem, then take it to a warranty repair shop, you have a 1 year warranty on this. Take your sales slip as proof of purchase.
