Question about Eureka 5892AVZ Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Vacuum bar not rolling

Hi!  I am using my roommate's eureka.  It is gorgeous and fancy so of course I had to go and break it. 

I don't know exactly what happened.  I ran over a bookbag strap, heard a "clunk" sound, turned the vacuum off, pulled the strap out, and turned the vacuum back on.  The rolling bar no longer rolls.  I examined this bar.  It had a dryer sheet wrapped around it (not sure where it picked that up or how long it was there).  I pulled and removed the dryer sheet.  The bar still does not roll. There is other debris around it- a couple of hairs- but nothing that would interfere with it rolling.  Vacuum still has suction and all other parts seem to be fine.  Do you know how to remove and clean the roller?  Or should I just give up, fess up to the roommate, and bring it to get serviced somewhere?

The suction on my eureka optima stopped working but the roller still works, what might i do to fix it?

Hi there. Most suction problems are due to a blockage. Start with the base and look carefully for debris that is stopping air flow. You may have to remove the base plate to get to the problem. I am including a link to the manual for your machine. look on page four so see how to remove the base and check for blocked airways.

In Carpet setting, the vacuum brush does not spin

I put 3 turns of electrical tape around the area of the beater bar that meets the vacuum belt. This solved the problem short of replacing the beater bar.

Multiple broken belts in months

Either the belt is not tracking straight, the brush roll is bad(check the ends to make sure they turn easily), or the base has warped and the brush roll is not sitting in the proper spot.

Belts keep breaking

Check the brush roll ends to see if they have melted or frozen. They should turn freely, part #361869-1. Make sure the belt isn't being pinched somewhere.

The top comes off to get to the belt and brush roll. Did you check the brush roll to make sure that the ends turn freely, or is one not turning, the belt is a lon life "U" part #61120A. The brush roll is what drives the vacuum, but if brush roll or belt is bad, then it won't drive it.
