Question about Eureka Vacuums
Unplug the machine and remove the foot plate (at the bottom of the vacuum head) and check the belt that drives the beater brush/bar. if the beater bar is hard to turn, pull the beater bar and belt out, check the inside circumference of the belt to see if the motor shaft has worn it down in one spot. If so, remove the two bearings (one at each end of the beater bar) and remove the hair, carpet fibers, strings and any other junk from the bearings and the ends of the beater bar. lubricate the bearings with oil (thin machine oil like 3 in 1 oil works best. roll the bearings with your hands until they spin freely. Now would be a good time to check the bottom of the foot plate where the dirt is vacuumed up. check the hole in the middle of the foot plate and check the hose for clogs if the hole and foot plate hole are clear, reassemble the bearings on the beater bar and install the beater bar (with a new belt) and reinstall the foot plate. The machine should run well for you.
