Check two things with this model: if the top slider button has been activated it will turn the brush roll on. If not then you'll have to remove the sole plate and check the sides of the beater bar - sometimes this will get jammed and refuse to turn because clogging of dust or tangled hair/carpet thread takes up the thread wheels at the sides. Sadly this model has a permanent toothed drive belt that can't really be replaced by the owner. However check the slider control on the top of the main body / handle first before doing anything - as you know it has a two option slider - switching on without the brush roll function and switching on with the brush roll activated.

How can I use my upright as air compressor to inflate air mattress


It would be difficult because your upright does not have an exhaust port where you can hook up a hose. You would have to attempt to funnel the air from the exhaust filter into a hose or tube.

My vacuum caught on fire when I tried replacing the belt and when I tried to unclog it. Is this common for other people, or am I just very lucky?


Today sadly to say it is common for most vacuums. The quality is so poor that the roller brushes don't last long and can burn up belts as fast as you can replace them. Next time you want to buy a vacuum, turn it up side down and see what the roller brush is made of. If is is steel then buy it, if it is wooden or plastic forget it.

Eureka boss power plus


I had this same problem. The brush roll wouldn't spin, smoke came out, and it smelled like burning rubber. I changed the belt thinking that would fix the problem but it didn't, so I took the belt back off and checked the motor shaft in the back and found a whole bunch of hair wrapped around the shaft. Once I cut out the hair with some scissors and replaced the belt, everything worked like normal. I hope this helps.

Roller brush will not turn on Eureka "The Boss Power Plus" 12 amp


Depending on the model there will be a couple of screws on the top plastic cover. The cover lifts off and the belt is then serviceable. On some models you will need to remove some parts on the bottom too to get the roller out.
In any case just look for screws that hold the covers on and explore a bit. You can't break anything.

Can't find manual needed to see why brushes don't turn Eureka Boss Whirlwind Lite Bagless Vacuum 450A


Hi Please visit http://www.eureka.com/parts.jsp and enter 450 into the first box on the page where you put the model number. This will gve you two options, one is for the PDF user manual, the other for parts.
Alternatively if you are trying to get into the drive belt locate four screws, two at the front and two at the back on top of the hood. Once undone, the hood should pop off easily to reveal the brush roll and drive belt. If the belt is intact check that the dust channel is completely free of blockages.
Dont forget to rate thanks!

Belt location


If you torn the macine over, at the bottom of the sweeper you will see the belt on on side. You have to take the bottom part apart and remove the brushes to replace the belt. I hope this helps.

Belt broke


The belt number is 60957, There should be some screws that you remove from the bottom and the whole bottom nozzle will come apart, then you can change the belt.
