There is no suction when the Eureka model 7685 is turned on. Is there an Air filter? If so, where is it located? The belt turns slowly when the vacuum is turned on. Is that normal?

No you vacuum tub is clogged. Shut off machine and remove hose where attachments go. Use a long handled kitchen appliance like a spaghetti stir to work the jam back and forth. You will be amazed at what comes out. Then remove string etc from the brush assy on each side so it can move fast again. You'd be surprised at how many of these calls I get and they can be fixed at home!!! Good Luck Matie!

Even with your explanation,it seems the hose is clogged.Try taking the hose off,then blow through it or pour water through it.If this doesn't do it,make sure the suction canals are going to the proper areas.

Make sure that the brush is turning freely and that there is no thread or lint preventing it from turning. Do not run the motor in this condition, you will burn the belt out.

The problem is that your belt is stretched and worn. This causes that burning smell and it also causes the vacuum to not pick up well. You need to replace the belt. Here is the belt you need and the manual with instructions:

Eureka Optima vacuum has suction at the hose but not at the floor. I took out the filter and it still isn't suctioning so I don't think it is the filter.


it sounds like you have a plug. check where the hose goes into the back of vac. it should have a clip remove this and see if there is a plug there

Motor runs fine and hosed not clogged will not pickup dirt


Check your fan for damaged or worn blades, then following the flow towards the bag check for blockage. Does your bag inflate when the vacuum is on? If so, it is less likely that you have blockage, than it is that there is an issue with the fan.

Vacume cleaner


Check the hose and see if it has a clog, also the hose at the bottom. The filters may be clogged, make sure they are clean and that air flows thru them, if not then replace them.
