Eureka Complete Clean 955A loss of suction

Vac only 3 months old, used twice and now the suction at the bottom head is gone and the suction is weak in the hose. I took apart the bottom head and the duct were the dirt goes is clear, and the beater bar is clean with a new belt. I checked the hose and it's clear. The red filter light is on so I followed the directions in the manual and cleaned the filters and emptied the dust cup, that did not work either. The unit is starting to over heat also.

SOURCE: Burning smell and smoke

I ran into a scenario similar to this at work. With the burning smell and smoke combined, it leaves only one problem remaining; the motor. The motor and the pulley that enables the belt to spin could be malfunctioning (causing friction between the 2 parts) and thus causes the burning smell and the smoke. I'd highly advise not to touch either part after having the unit on (YOU WILL BURN YOURSELF).

The only other likely possibility is to make sure there aren't any hairs caught in or around the motor and the bearings of the agitator.

SOURCE: my eureka 2961avz bagless vacuum has no suction

Usually clogs are in the dirt inlet by the brush roll, or in the hose. Take the hose off from the bottom and see if there is suction, if not, then the hose is clogged. If suction there, then it is lower. Also is the brush roll turning, if not, that could be your problem.

SOURCE: vacuum is sucking but dirt is just shooting out behind the vacuum

I bought this same vacuum and have all the same problems. It seems it is always the filter but if it out and use the air hose and clean it it really really well then it sucks really well it will pick up anything but who wants to always do this. As one person asked about the bare floors not working well I read on another blog that company knows it does not work well on barefloors but has failed to metion this. One more thing besides the clog always being in the back were the hose connects I always find a clog in the yellow part above the canister. I always pull out so much crap there. Oh sorry one more thing I found that helped with the power was that I completely took the duster part completely off and just use the hose. Hope you have better luck than I do or did..

First, check to see if there is suction without the hose on the base. If not, and there is no blockage, the problem is likely a damaged impeller, the small fan that makes the suction. That will have to be replaced.

Buckaboo, you say the debris no longer collects in the cup? Does that mean you don't have suction as well?

The brushroll has it's own motor so the brushes spinning doesn't necessarily mean there's not a problem with the wiring, the switch, or the motor.

Assuming you haven't inadvertantly set the selector switch to floor when you wanted to use the hose or vice versa, try the following.

Start with the motor/impeller first. Take the dust canister off and turn the vacuum on. It doesn't matter if you turn on the brushroll or not as you're looking for suction.

With the vacuum on feel for exhaust out the front of the motor (by the secondary handle on the bottom. Also put your hand over the area where the dust canister sits. You should feel strong exhaust and suction respectively.

If not, then you should take it in to a technician as going any further requires disassembly.

If you feel there's enough suction, then it may be as simple as a clog. This vacuum has a particularly easy air path to check. There's a clear snap-on door on the bottom to check the brushroll and neck. Then from there it's a straight shot through the canister itself before dumping inside and going through the filter. If it's the hose, you can turn the end clockwise to remove it from the body of the vacuum and use a broomstick to clear any clogs.

If it's not a clog or filter then you may try cleaning the seals (one round at the bottom of the canister where the canister mates to the body and a rectangular one in back of that where the dust runs up and into the canister.

Good Luck!

No suction. dirt goes into the filter instead of the canister


Check the motor and clean it properly. A very dirt motor will cause no suction or weak suction.
Be sure the motor is running on proper speed, a weak motor will cause a weak suction.
Thanks for asking.

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 437 stopped sucking


Hello,
I believe the filter on your vacuum is clogged. Bagless vacuums require the filter be brushed or washed and dried, If they are not, the filter will clog, resulting in the reduction of suction. Clean filter about every 3 months or sooner if the same problem happens again. Hope this helps.

Need to replace belt on Eureka Powerline 12.0 vac. Screws look like Torx head or something on bottom of vac. Are those the screws that need to come out for changing? If so, what size do I need?


No, do not remove the torx head screws for a belt change. If there are any screws that need to be removed for the belt change, they will be phillips head. What is model # of vac??

Eureka the Boss Smart Vac. Hose has suction, but still isn't picking up. Weird.


Your belt is probably broken. Check your belt and make sure your brushroll has not seized. If both of those check out ok, (because the smartvac belt doesn't stretch,) the belt tensioner assembly may have gone bad.

I like using a Wire Clothes hanger to work the stuff out with. If you fashion a fish hook of sorts out of the wire, you can catch things inside the brush head and pull them out.
