SOURCE: My Eureka Lite speed whirlwind has a bad odor when it runs.

It is either the filter or on the roller or belt.

SOURCE: what belt do I purchase for eureka whirlwind

Hello,

If you have the exact model Eureka that this repair was listed under, model 4388 then please find a link to the belt you need below. If you'd like to verify the model number, please check the back or the bottom of the vacuum for a sticker that also will contain the serial number, and look for the word Model Number. If you don't have the 4388, please just add a comment with the model you have and I'll be more then happy to verify these two models take the same belt, or give you a link to the belt that goes to your model if they are different.

Here's a link to the exact belt called for on the model 4388:
Eureka Extended Life Style U Belt, Part 61120

Here's step by step instructions on how to replace the belt:

How To Replace Brush Roll Belt
NOTE: Turn off the switch and unplug the electrical cord
before replacing belt. Belt pulleys can become
hot during normal use. To prevent injury, avoid
touching the motor pulley when checking the belt.

9. Rotate brush roll to seat belt.
10. Replace the hood. Make sure hood front is
behind furniture guard. Hood should seat
onto self-locating screw tabs.
11. Tighten screws.


I hope this information was helpful to you in changing the belt. If you have any questions about how to change this belt, please just add a comment here on the repair page of Fixya, and I'll be happy to answer any follow up questions you might have. If you found this helpful, please be so kind and rate my repair helpful and / or leave feedback for me.

SOURCE: the vacuum roller won't turn but the belt is fine

The belt may look fine but it's probably stretched out. Rubber belts are usually good for about 1 year. The tension of the belt is what allows it to turn under the strain of the carpet. Make sure the brushroll spins freely when held out of the machine. Eureka brushrolls are prone to melt down on the end caps. If that has happened you will need a new one.

Eureka Model Whirlwind litespeed. The rotart brush does not turn or rotate. Should it turn or rotate in order to give better suction?


Hello fnintel, yes, if you are using the upright vacuum it should spin, ( the belt likely slipped off, or the brush is clogged with hair and the likes.)
However, if you are using the hose on the vacuum like a shop vac, some models bypass the rotary brush.
Good luck!

The bristles aren't rotating. Is there an easy solution to this?


The belt probably broke. Simply purchase another belt and replace. These belts are made for much stress, and if you've had the vacuum for even a month, they can easily break.
It may also have slipped off the motor shaft, causing the brush to spin freely.
