Getting a Eureka central vac cloth bag back in after cleaning

We have a Eureka mega boss built-in vacuum installed 1994 - took out the cloth bag to clean it, but can't get it back in. It has a flexible band and loop, and there is a groove on the inside of the cannister - but we can't seem to get it ailgned properly.
any suggestions?

I found that if you start by making sure that the tab that you pull to remove the filter is in a spot where you can reach it next time you need to remove it. Next, put the filter in over the inlet spoutand push it up to the white "stops" then gently push all the way around - you should be able to feel a groove around the edge of the filter.

The easiest way is probably to take the unit off the wall turn it upside down. This will give you some leverage. I would not try to get the ring in all at once, but leave a little out and then that piece that is left out you might need to bend it a little to get it in. There really is no trick that is why I am not a big fan of filtered central vacs. I prefer true cyclonic.

My home has a central vacuum system hook-up but no vacuum installed. My friend upgraded his central system and gave me his Eureka Mega Boss central vacuum system and the accessories, including the pow


The power head requires 120 Volts. Some hoses have a receptacle in the handle for the power head plug, and the hose has a cord at the wall inlet end that plugs into a receptacle. Some hoses have a plug at the wall inlet end that plugs into a 120Volt receptacle built into the inlet. The hose plugs into this receptacle when you push the hose into the inlet. The power for this built-in receptacle is wired with line voltage when the system is installed.

Central vac is Eureka Altima CV1801M. Tripped the circuit breaker when I turned it on. Discovered bag was full. Replaced bag and now vacuum won't power on without tripping breaker. Any idea what could...


Ok thiese are my specialty. Somemodels have a cloth filter, make sure it is clean. Also check the hose or pipes for a clogg. The best way to do this is turn the machine on, put hose in, if the motor winds up like its labouring there is a clog in ther hose. Do this with every inlet and listen for the same. If the vac. is hot it will not turn back on until it cools. Hope this helps, if not let me know. Chris

We just moved in - the house is about 9 years old. I have a Eureka Mega Boss central vac - looks like model # is CV20220. 12.4 amps, 120 volts. Can't figure out what type of bags I need. Can you...


Well, for this unit you will need any of the following bags,

Eureka genuine Part# 90610
Eureka replacement (Central vac bag)
another genuine bag style called CV-1, and/or CV-2
Kenmore Central vac bags

Most of the bags there are available at your local vacuum shop, and sometimes even Sears. The Kenmore central vac bag is, can and will fit your Eureka Mega Boss. Prices range on these bags anywhere from $12-$20 for packages of 3. Generally you will replace a bag once every 3-4 months.

Good luck,
Mark

My eureka has no suction at all


try taking out the bag and checking to see if the inlet port onthe bottom of the inside of the bag bay is giving any sucion or if you can feel air rushing past your fingers. if there is then there is eiher a full bag, or a clog in oneo f the inlet ports going to the bag that the vacuum cannot clear. also make sure your filters are clear of debree and clean.
