Question about Eureka Smartvac 4870 Bagged Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Any belts that can sub. for the RR

I have a Eurka Boss Smart 4870. I am having the problem with the roller bhrush not spinning, when it is put on the carpet. I already read here that others are having the same problem because Eureka wonderful plastic belt is to slippery against the shaft and it dosen't get enough friction to catch the belt. People here suggested putting contact cement or electircal tape on the belt/shaft to gain friction and this dose work.....but I am wondering if there is another belt from any other manufacturer that is the same size that would work??????Any ideas, where can I get the size of the belt anyway????

    yo can do that same as the belt in the car.

    take the belt off the vacuum, take it to any of appliance store or repair shop, have them match the size of the belt.

Applied the electrical tape to the motor shaft as suggested by another poster. The tape ripped off, but the sticky residue left provides enough friction to grab the belt and cause the beter brush to turn correctly. Thanks

My Eureka The boss Smartvac Model #4870 roller brush won't turn even on the highest setting and the belt smells hot. we took the belt off. How can you tell if it needs replaced?


Just by what you explained I can tell that it needs to be replaced. The belt doesn't have to be broken to need replacing, if it is stretched and worn then it will slip on the motor shaft and not turn the brush roll and get hot. Here is a link to the belts you need and the manual which has instructions:

Yes, you need to replace the belt. You should actually change this belt every year. Here is a link to the belt you need and the manual which has instructions:

Brush roller spins until it touches the carpet, then stops.


That means that the belt is stretched or worn. Here is a link to the replacement belts you need and a manual which has instructions:

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.

Euerka Smart Boss upright


Price of Belt: $ 7.49 from www3.sears.com
Part No. 61110A

Price of Bag: $7.99 for a pack of 3.
Part No. 61115A or Eureka Bag Type RR

Estimated Repair Cost: $75-90 pending parts and labor rates

The likely possibility is that the belt was installed wrong. Without seeing the unit myself, I cannot say if the pulleys are mis-aligned. I will get back to you if I find any new information.
