Eureka vacuum won't stay running

I have a central Eureka vacuum, model CV160IF. It quit all together the other day. I removed the canister and it was VERY full. It has a cloth filter which I cleaned as best I could without removing it. It had tripped the breaker so I reset it and reset the unit and it came on. Now it only runs for about a minute, suction is great but it quits. I can tell there is still some fine dust inside the cloth filter. I put a platic bag around the bottom and tried to work as much of it out as possible but I can't get it all out and I'm not sure how the cloth filter comes out. All I can find on the Eureka website is there's some kind of ring that has to be removed and reinstalled properly but I haven't figured that out yet. I'm wondering if there's some sort of internal switch or resistor that may be gone instead. I'm going to keep trying to figure out how the filter comes out but thought I would do this at the same time. Any ideas? Thanks for your help.

There is a relay in the system. Based on your description it sounds like yours is bad. The cloth filter is a big pain to remove. I would recommend burrowing a shop vac from a friend and cleaning it that way.

I am buying a central vac system, can you tell me the better of the easy flo or nutone brand. I want the one with the least problems. It appears to me that the easy flo has fewer problems, thank you


between the two brands... stay away from the nutone. If you can get it, the Beam, Eureka, or even the Electrolux and Kenmore(sears) would still be better. The warranty would be better on the Beam and Eureka (7 or 10 and one model is even 15 years)

Good luck on your purchase.

Canister turns on but no suction in house


sounds like there could be a clog in the lines, Check the pipes running through your attic/basement, and see if there's something blocking the piping.

If you can't seem to find the problem, I'd suggest looking into having someone who services central vacuums come and take a look. They'd have the proper tools and knowledge to help you in person

Dirt is being trapped in the filter area instead of canister.


The canister has a filter as well. It needs to be replaced or cleaned. A damaged canister filter will feed dirt into the HEPA filter. (and the motor)
An improperly installed filter can allow dirt to bypass the canister filter and collect in the HEPA filter.
I suggest a new canister filter and then clean it carefully every week.
Here is a list of the filters for your vacuum.

Central vacuum won't turn on


Check your filter to make sure that it is seated completely in the unit. There is a switch at the top that the filter has to press before the unit will run. It is there to protect the unit from running without a filter. If you remove the filter, and look up into the unit, you will see it. It's a longish white plastic piece that you can depress by hand. Listen for the faint click while you are inserting the filter to be sure the filter is depressing the switch. Good luck!

Eureka canister vacuum model 6865- cleaning


70227 is the part number for the owner manual, but you would have to have it order it. You can call 1-800-282-2886, this is Eureka's customer service, they don't have it in their data base, but maybe they can find something for you.
