    After reading and going through the comments, suggestions and advises here, nothing still works, here is what have solved my problem: a) cleaned the canister, cleaned the filters (didn't change them, I actually rinse them with water and dried them). After doing this, my vacuum wouldn't still work. So, I took my other vacuum and poked the non-working vacuum hose and allowed it to be sucked by my working vacuum. Effect? voila! problem solved. if you're successful with the advice i gave, send me $5 at ha ha ha ha ha . I just want to share with you my joy after an overnite struggle of thinking about solving this problem. God bless!

SOURCE: my eureka surfacemax 300 is not sucking up

I've found that some times if you let the cup get too full, stuff will get jammed up above it. Turn off the vacuum and unplug it, and remove the cup. Reach up inside the vacuum above the cup and there is a small, plastic cylinder you can twist to remove (twist and pull down). clean this plastic piece off, and reach up inside where it was located. Clean out that crevice as well. Vacuum should be as good as new!

(It shuts off because it is over heating from not being able to pull anything through there.)

Check the leak (where the dust come from); maybe you need to tighten or reseat one or more part in that area.

Smells hot when running and will not pick up debris I recently cleaned all filters


Something is stuck in the piping system. The passing vacuum air is used to cool the motor. It's not getting that air so it will start to over heat and smell

Seems to **** up the dirt/dust and simply blow it out instead of capturing it inside


Most of these have an suction hose and a blow port. One blows air, one sucks air. Make sure the suction hose is on the correct port. Also, a dirty air filter will cause the same effects. The filter must be good to prevent the dirt and dust being blow around.

Surfacemax 300 yellow eureka vac. is there a belt? if so , what is the belt number and how do you change the belt? most vaccs have this info on the product a is not ablet to locate this info. tnanks


On the top yellow part above the rollerbrush, there are two screws. Take them out. Insert your fingernail into the part where the yellow meets the rubber and lift. The yellow should pop off. Follow the directions printed on the label inside, directly above the rollerbrush to change the belt.

Your vacuum SHOULD have come with a replacement belt as well as an instruction guide. The instructions for replacing the belt are there. If you don't have this, well, that's why I typed this out. :) You can purchase a belt on eureka.com by looking under customer service, and putting in your model number. This is located on the label on the back of the vacuum, under where the cord goes through that loop thing.

What causes a vacuum to make lots of dust and throw back out what it vacuumed


It sounds like the airducts that lead to your dirt chamber are clogged. The dirt can't get through to the dirt cup so it spits it back out and blows dust everywhere.

I just discovered that if you remove the dust cup, lay the vaccum back, reach up inside above the dust cup area, there is a yellow piece that can be removed (twist it and it comes out.) I found that there were GOBS of lint and pet hair stuck inside there. We removed all of that and the vacuum works great again!
