Question about Eureka Lite 4331 Bagged Upright Vacuum

Open Question

Eureka 4331 (Boss Lite) vacuum doesn't pick up dirt anymore

We have changed the bag, cleaned the filter, made sure all hoses are clear. The brushes are turning. We have suction. Just not picking up th dirt very well.

We've loved this vacuum for its price, weight and excellent cleaning abilities and versatility.

It doesn't appear that Eureka makes this model anymore.

On the top cover, there are holes at the front on both sides, there is a screw on each side in one of the holes. Take the out, and the cover should come off, then you can get to the brush roll and belt.

It should be a standard Eureka U belt. That number you have is not a good number. Most repair shops should have this one. The R belt is a real thin and different material.

Usually clogs are in the dirt inlet by the brush roll, or in the hose. Take the hose off from the bottom and see if there is suction, if not, then the hose is clogged. If suction there, then it is lower. Also is the brush roll turning, if not, that could be your problem.

SOURCE: In Carpet setting, the vacuum brush does not spin

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.

My dirt deivl want pick up dirt that well. what is the promblem?


Most likely, it needs to be cleaned out. Change the bag (or clean the dirty cup), change or clean all filters and hoses . Clean the brushes. It probably sucked up some water and combined with dirt it clogs up filters and hoses.

I replaced the belt in our Eureka Boss Smart Vac, it still seems loose, it uses a type R belt. The beater belt still doesn't seem to turn properly and seems that it doesn't pick up very well when I use it...


Check to see that the beater brush is not frozen up. Pull the brush and clean it, spraying some WD40 on each end piece that holds the brush in place. Also be sure the belt is properly installed so that the brush turns in the correct direction. If the brush is not turning or not turning in the correct direction, it will not beat the dirt from the carpet so that it can be picked up by the vacuum's suction.

Have a Eureka "the boss" smartvac, won't pick up anything when I try to vacuum carpet. Any suggestions on how to fic this problem?


1st) make sure your yellow dial at the top by handle is in floor position
2nd) make sure your brush roll spins when handle is reclined in operating position. (disengage brushroll control by flipping the "switch" towards you)
3rd) check belt to make sure it is not broken
4th) check the brush roll for debris caught in it
5th) check lower hose

Burning smell and not picking up dirt


You probably need to change the belt. Here is a link to the belt you need and to the manual:

Suction is not good. It is more hassle to empty. You have to take apart top filter & pull out everything stuck uptop. I end up with more dust on the outside when I change. I miss my bags. No dirt to...


Yeah i agree with you...Sometimes you have to disconnect the primary vacuum hose at both ends and clear the debris in it..Then take the plastic top off the motor houseing and clean it out aswell...Its a pain rest assured :)

The brush does not spin when making contact with carpeting


I tried the electrical-tape-around-the-wooden-spindle technique. After a minute or so, it's back to functioning normally.

Motor runs fine and hose not clogged will not pickup dirt


This may sound silly, but have you checked the belt? A lot of Eureka vacuums use the vac motor to run the brush, and if the brush is not running the vacuum won't pick up. Another thing to check is the condition of the fan blades.. if they get worn they will push air out of the exhaust ports, but not push enough air to pull the dirt into the vacuum bag. Another thing to check is the length of the bristles on the brush... you can change a lot of the bristle strips and save the cost of a whole brush roll.. All of these fixes are under $10.00 (Belt: $1-2, Brush Strip $3-6, Fan $5-10) at most places.

My eureka has no suction at all


try taking out the bag and checking to see if the inlet port onthe bottom of the inside of the bag bay is giving any sucion or if you can feel air rushing past your fingers. if there is then there is eiher a full bag, or a clog in oneo f the inlet ports going to the bag that the vacuum cannot clear. also make sure your filters are clear of debree and clean.
