Hello, wolf

I was trying to help you out here. Maybe this will help some? I was going back to some customers that asked questions in the recent past and even farther back. It appeared that no one answered some of them, So, I thought I would take some of my own personal time
to see if I can help. Even though this a Informational site may not have your exact model or brand, But this site will help you a lot. Here is the site link about everything you want to know about vacuum cleaners and possibly yours, from repair to trouble shooting it.

Please if this helped you at all, if you can find the time and in your heart to rate my help and some kind words written would be appreciated for my free help, I would appreciate it. Like I said I just tried to help, If anything this is good information for future problems. If you felt that my free help was a waist of time for you, I'm sorry.I do not get paid to help people on the site, I do it cause I like to help.

Here is also my direct link to my own pages of other areas of my expertise for other problems you might have in Automotive, Appliance, and Electronics. Drop In anytime for my help.

Thanks, Mike

My Eureka Optima vacuum doesn't have any suction when on the floor option. How can I fix this?


It will as long as long as your accessory hose is properly inserted into the base. Otherwise the vacuum stays on the hose only.

My Eureka Optima vacuum handle broke right at the metal tube.


I have exactly the same problem. I plan to drill a hole in the handle through plastic and metal, and then pass a metal pin to hold them together. I don't rotate the handle much, so the loss of handle spin functionality will not be a major issue for me.

Eureka 4870 roller only spins in upright


if the belt has been slipping it may have pollished the moteror brush shaft and it just slips. take a small piece of sand paper or enery cloth and ruffen up the shaft to give it some grip.
if the metal shaft of the motor has been heated up due to slippage it will take some doing to ruffun it as the shaft will be hardend due to heat
