Question about Eureka 4700A Maxima Bagless Upright Vacuum
There is only a hole underneath in the plastic housing that the wheel assembly fits up into to adjust for carpet or smooth floor etc. Looks like there is supposed to be a part that fits in that hole but numerous online searches for the part haven't turned up anything for me. The assembly is supposed to be self adjusting. As is there is no adjustment that I can see and the vacuum just sucks down onto thin carpeting making it difficult to move.

I do not know if mine is the santria brand but are you turning the knob on top of the solution carrier to off before trying to suck the water? Renee

It is a simple fix that you need. Your belt needs to be replaced. After a period of time, the belt stretches to the point where it is still strong enough to spin the brush when you have the machine upside down to look at it, but when you put the machine down on the carpet the belt is too weak to turn the brush against the resistance of the carpet.
Most Eureka belt changes are simple to do and the belts are inexpensive.

hey i had the same problem with mine, (standing over it and looking straight down) there should be two screws on the top of the yellow cover, one on each side, take those out and the yellow cover should easliy pop off. if the white ink is off the belt or the belt isnt tight than replace, once off just pop the wheel brush (which has the belt around it) up out of its socket and take off of the belt from the wheel brush and motor's metal pole, then put on the new one just like the old one was. let me know how it works out, firstname.lastname@example.org

I put 3 turns of electrical tape around the area of the beater bar that meets the vacuum belt. This solved the problem short of replacing the beater bar.
