If the motor is obsolete which it appears to be, have you considered repair?

Write my shop at service@emrrepair.com, with enough information on the failure mode we can get you a close estimate, some of these older vacuums just cannot be beat, for performance, power, etc, We traditionally do not do retail work, but with the current conditions, and woodburning stove blowers rendering perfectly good stoves into land fills, and replacement costs of over $3000,. we have repaired many blowers and fire eyes from $50.00 to $159.00, it all depends on the degree of damage, but we are trying our hardest to salvage some very nice older equipment, let us know, references or see me at allexperts.com.

Very loud motor


If you are sure the noise is comming from the motor, either the fan on the motor is damaged and now not balanced or the bearings are bad. If it's a year old or less you can get it repaired under the guarantee at a Eureka Nationwide service center. Proof of purchase is needed. If it's over a year old it probably won't be worth fixing as the motor and labor charge may equal the price you paid for the vac.

Noise can also come from the spinning brush. If you disconnect the belt and turn on the vac and the noise is still there it's the motor. If its gone it's the brush roll.

Eureka 5841 upright vacuum cleaner quits running, it takes a very long time before it will start again


The motor is running hot and causing a emergency shutdown. It is either clogged somewere or the motor is bad check for cloggs first then if none are present you will have to replace the motor. Depending on the original price of the machine if the motor is bad you may be better off buying a new machine.

Will not start ...I get a momentary flicker of power about every 3rd or 4th time that I flick on the power switch. Outlet is fine / Plug looks good / cord looks good / I see no obstructions ........Would appreciate any helpful thoughts ....Trying to get Mom's Eureka 2961AVZ back up and running. Thanks

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It sounds to me that you may have a bad switch or the worst scenario would be a bad motor and or armature, and the armature is almost the cost of the new motor, so I would replace the motor, but check the switch and the cord because sometimes the cord looks good but there might be broken wires inside the cord that you can’t see. If the vacuum is less than one year old the motor would be covered under the factory warranty if one year and maybe the switch as well. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Eureka Wide Track Superlite vacuum roller brush motor


Don't know if you can find something that will work, Eureka doesn't make these motors available thru them. Try some local shops or a place that sells small motors.

Eureka Bagless Widetrack, The Boss, Vacume, model 5893


Had exactly the same problem with my upright Eureka Model 5893 bagless. Eventually, the handle would get hot, and finally it just quit. When handle was disassembled, the wires were melted and it was toast. Ordered a switch after talking to several repair men. Talked to Eureka, too, and they were absolutely no help. Cheap wiring and switch made in China. Good luck trying to find a switch. vacuum-depot.com has switches, so you might try there, but make sure you get the 3-prong switch (same switch used on Eureka's Genesis. It is Part #27871.

Eureka Altima is smoking!
Posted by saysay on May 18, 2008
Help! My vacuum is smoking. It won’t work anymore and starts to smoke as soon as it gets turned on.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.

Eureka Altima Upright Vacuum Model #2996AVS – it is probably doing 2 things, it could be the belt and or brushroll and the easiest ay to check is to remove the belt and see if the motor smokes, if the motor is fine then buy a new belt and check the brushroll to see if the brushroll spins freely, there are bearings in the brushroll and thread and hair get bound up in the ends and needs to be cleaned out. So #1, check the belt – no smoke from the motor then check the brushroll to see if it spins freely then changed the belt. If the motor smokes check your purchase date it may still be under the one year factory warranty from the dop. #2. Either clean or replace the brushroll and belt. If you have any further questions, feel free to contact your local vac dealer. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
There are 2 different models of the boss by Eureka – there is a standard old style upright that the belt that the belt would unscrew from the bottom of the motor and you would have to remove the top of the vacuum cover to remove the main motor and gasket assm, and then the fan has a reverse thread on the plastic fan and you would unscrew the fan after removing the belt pulley. Then you would screw on the new fan, belt pulley, replace the gasket and re-install the motor. If you have a new style with a side mount motor you would remove the top cover, the motor would be in there sideways, un-screw the motor, remove the silver tape around the fan housing and un-screw the fan housing – same as above un-screw the fan from the motor, there is a nut on the end of the fan holding that on – (remember, the fan has a reverse thread) re-install the fan. Then the fan housing, replace the silver tape, and then screw down the motor and replace the top cover, then you can test. As always free to contact your local vacuum dealer in your area in the yellow pages or contact your Eureka factory manufacturer listed below:
