Height adjustment not working


Manual says to tilt the vacuum back so the front wheels are off the ground (unit turned off of course) and make the adjustment. May take some back-and-forth force, but should adjust. If not, then something is jamming the switch.

Have a Eureka "the boss" smartvac, won't pick up anything when I try to vacuum carpet. Any suggestions on how to fic this problem?


1st) make sure your yellow dial at the top by handle is in floor position
2nd) make sure your brush roll spins when handle is reclined in operating position. (disengage brushroll control by flipping the "switch" towards you)
3rd) check belt to make sure it is not broken
4th) check the brush roll for debris caught in it
5th) check lower hose

I have a Eureka 'The Boss Smart Vac'. The beater


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:

Eureka the Boss SmartVac just turned off and won't turn on


Make sure it is not the electrical outlet that has tripped. If not then you basically have 3 choices. Cord, switch, motor. A service tech. should be able to diagnose.

New brushroll for eureka smartvac 4870; bristles too long to turn


HI Don't forget that you have a height adjustment control so its better to put it in the highest position - if this is not allowing the roller brush to move properly on the carpet then switch the vacuum off, and lightly trim with scissors on the brush lines. Avoid cutting everything down though - a slight trim should improve things. Generally though when brushes appear too long its usually because the height adjustment dial hasn't been set upwards.

The brush does not spin when making contact with carpeting


I tried the electrical-tape-around-the-wooden-spindle technique. After a minute or so, it's back to functioning normally.

Kirby creating dirt under carpet?


It is possible that the height adjustment on your Kirby is to close to the carpet,which could account for the problem you're having.The correct height adjustment for your Kirby is this-Lower the height adjustment down until you hear a change in the sound,then adjust one more click down.The Kirby is at the correct height for cleaning.If the carpet is different in another room,adjust it the same way for each carpet

Carpet height selector doesn't work.


You have a bad belt. It may not be broke but it's so loose that it isn't turning the brush roller when a little resistance is applied to it. That belt is cheap and it's routine maintenance to change it about every 6 months. You will notice a big difference when you put a new one on.
