After the Eureka 4467 runs for a few minutes a power surge occurs. The vacuum motor slows down and any lights in the house are dimmed.
Is there a fuse or something that I can change?
The suction seems okay, and nothing is clogged.
Thanks for any info

The Motor has locked up due to over heating. Once that happens the only way to go is either replace the motor drive or get a new cleaner. Do not try and keep energizing the Vacuum as you could blow circuit-breakers or start an electrical fire.
Sadly, the battery is not replaceable on this unit. According to the schematic, I can get almost every part but that. This is common with all of the cordless units too. Batteries are usually the same price as purchasing a new unit. If the unit is more than 1 year old, sorry to say its pretty much garbage. IF the unit is less than one year, it should be under warranty and replaced by your local Eureka/Electrolux dealer.
Also, not all hope is lost on this unit, if there is an obvious burn, or connection issue, a little bit of solder should correct the problem. Good luck!!
make sure all your filters are clean,try to turn the brush roller by hand a few times if it turns real freely then the belt is broke.if it is reall hard to turn then you have something wrapped around the ends of the roller where the bearings are.your motor guard might be keeping it from running because it got too hot take the brush roller out and the belt let it cool down for 20 minutes then try it without the roller and belt.you should be able to take the ends of the roller off by just pulling out on them so you can remove what ever is in there
It sounds like you have a motor protection fuse that resets after an overheat/cooling cycle.These work the same as a circuit breaker in your house with the difference being they can reset themselves.The Bosch will also shut down if there is insufficient airflow and I would check your filters first.1) Pull the filter and let the machine run.Do not pick up debris when you operate without a filter-it will be drawn straight into the motor.If it runs fine without shutting down, all you need to do is change your filter.If it shuts down again check the external hose for any blockages.Also check the throat from the powerhead for any blockages.If you continue to have the same problem then you will need to replace the fuse because at this point you have eliminated all the other likely problems.Good Luck-Scott
I would contact eureka for warranty repair. sounds like it there is something wrong with the mechanis of the unit. could be that water is making its way into the motor pump housing and causing damage to the pump
The windings have a temperature sensor that "usually" resets when it detects an over heating problem. The other alternative is a light bulb in series with the motor that has popped, this will stop the motor from running.
I'd bet on the thermostat in series with the windings first though, can be replaced if you can get the cleaner apart.
