    I figured it out. You pull the front bottom piece forward and then pull up on the cover. It is head on with three tabs, be careful not to break the tabs, they seem fairly strong though.

SOURCE: Eureka Maxima Bagless brush not spinning in vacuum position

belt doesnt have to be broken, check the metal arm on the vacuum, see if there is build up of old rubber from previous belts, clean the arm that spins the belt and double check to make sure u have the correct belt

SOURCE: Broken on/off switch

I have the same vacuum and the on/off switch wasn't working any longer so I took the cover off to find out that the wiring got so hot that it melted through the wire coating and plastic frame.

SOURCE: Eureka Altima Bagless Upright Brush is not spinning

You probably just have a broken belt. The belt needs to be changed about every 6 months regardless. I believe yours takes a style EXT U(Extended life upright), or a regular Eureka "U" belt works fine too.

SOURCE: eureka 4870 roller only spins in upright

if the belt has been slipping it may have pollished the moteror brush shaft and it just slips. take a small piece of sand paper or enery cloth and ruffen up the shaft to give it some grip.
if the metal shaft of the motor has been heated up due to slippage it will take some doing to ruffun it as the shaft will be hardend due to heat

How can I disassemble the Eureka Altima Brush Roll (#60844-7) for cleaning? Thank you, Jerry in Irving, TX


You can remove the two screws in the top cover above the roller. Then lift off the top cover exposing the roller. You can then pull the roller out, and clean out the cradles that hold the end caps. The square end caps can also be pulled off the bearings at the ends of the rollers. I had a lot of stuff wrapped around mine creating a lot of drag, but the bearings were just fine once everything got cleaned out. Just remember which end cap is which, cause they're different for each end.

I have a Eureka Bravo! 7.0 vaccum cleaner, how do I change the belt


Turn the vac over so the brush is facing up.. There is a cover plate that surrounds the brush.. Take the screws out and remove the cover plate.. Pull up on the side of the brush that the belt is on.. Replace the belt.. The belt goes around the metal shaft and the brush.. Push the brush back in place.. It might be a bit tough going in because the belt causes some tension.. Put the cover plate and screws back in..

Good luck ! Please don’t forget to rate well ;o)

Belt seems to have broken where do I get new belt for my eureka


If this is the same model as the one you have dont forget the 402A has a brush roll on/off function located on the main power switch so that it can be used with the beater bar on or off. If you remove the sole plate you'll find a toothed drive belt. These don't normally break and can be difficult to find a replacement. Check EBAY or Electrolux/Boss for replacements. It may just have slipped off its mechanism.

I want to replace the belt on an upright eureka vacuum model 4481, any ideas?


I just replaced the belt on my 4481. Very simple. Be sure unit is unplugged. Unlock handle and let it lay down. Remove two screws on plastic cover. I purchased my belt at target for 2.54. Part number anywhere is Eureka U. Remove the roller brush. Loop belt around drive motor first and then around roller brush inserting the roller back into place belt side first. Replace cover and your ready to go. 10 min fix.

There are 2 screws on the top cover, remove those and the cover comes off, then you can get to the brush roll and belt. Inspect the brush roll, make sure the ends turn freely, if not, then replace it also.

No sucking


Could be that the dust cup filter is clogged, part #60958, or the inlet down by the brush roll is clogged.
