Question about Eureka 5849A Boss Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

Suction is not good. It is more hassle to empty. You have to take apart top filter & pull out everything stuck uptop. I end up with more dust on the outside when I change. I miss my bags. No dirt to deal with.

Yeah i agree with you...Sometimes you have to disconnect the primary vacuum hose at both ends and clear the debris in it..Then take the plastic top off the motor houseing and clean it out aswell...Its a pain rest assured :)

Hoover dm6200 blowing air


check your suction hose again, follow it to where it goes into the body of the machine. I assume this will be near where the bagless cannister is. Remove the bagless cannister and look up inside to where the attachment hose should come into the cannister. I believe you are still blocked up there. using a butter knife or something along those lines should free up the blockage.
Also, if that is all clear, try re-adjusting the dirt cannister as it may not be on properly to create your suction flow through the hose.
Good luck and let me know if I can help further.

I have a shark navigator vacuum that is making a loud noise and sounds like air is blowing out a hole on the side


I found the issue, the square hole in the side is an emergency air release if the suction is not reaching the dust collector. The cylinder filter screen inside the the top of the dust collector had a thick layer of dust which wasn't allowing airflow to the dust collector, hence the air was escaping through the square hole on the side. I cleaned the screen and it worked as if it came right out of the box.

No suction?


-Check to make sure the dirt cup is empty.
-Check the filters, If your filters are dirty they can restrict airflow.
The black filters only may be hand washed in cold water with mild detergent, re-install filters when they are completely dry.
-Check for good suction at the end of the upholstery hose. If there is limited suction from the upholstery hose detach the hose from the machine. Insert a broomstick into the hose to push any obstruction through to the opposite end.
-Check the lower hose for clogs. Remove the screw from the left side of the lower hose on the back of the unit and straighten this section of hose by pulling it down or lay unit out flat (the detent will need to be pushed twice) and roll unit on its side with the lower hose towards the top side. Look through the hose for obstructions. Push a broomstick through this lower hose to unclog.
-Check brush belt and replace if broken.

There is no suction, even though the container is empty


Your hose is clogged and needs to be cleared. You may have to remove one or both ends of the hose that connects the dirt to the container.

You might have success trying to "back vacuum" the hose. A broom handle is sure to clear the clog, however.

No air pressure to **** up dirt


First test suction on unit without the hose, is there suction? If yes, attach hose and test. If no go to the door to outside, attach hose to the top of unit where it blows (under handle on top), put hose out door and turn on. The stuff clogging the hose should blow out the end.

If it wasn't the hose check the wand, and then the power nozzle and using the above to clear obstruction.

Electrolux Z8240 model vacuum cleaner flashing red & blue 1 every 6 seconds. What could be wrong with it


Inside ,the dust collection container, there at the far end is a white cone shape (another filter). I think you may find this covered in lint etc and if you reach in with your hand you can just pull the stuff off. Happened to me around the two month mark and I THINK, so far, so good. My machine is now not switching off and flashing lights at me and the suction is back to fabulous. Found this information on another obsure website. You would think electrolux would mention it in their "Troubleshooting Guide" GOOD LUCK

1. Make sure the hose attachment is pushed all the way down into its receptacle. It will click softly when it's all the way down.

2. Detach the hose from the machine. Do this by twisting the grey fitting on the back of the machine. (Note: leave the attachment end of the hose plugged into the machine) Turn the machine on. Hold your hand over the hose fitting. If there's strong suction then there is a blockage in the hose.

3. If not, check in the fitting to see if something is stuck in there. On the back of the machine there is a long clear tube that travels down the back of the machine. Sometimes larger peices of paper get stuck in there. If something is in this tube, take a phillips screwdrive, remove the 7 black screws off and remove the blockage. Reassemble and try the machine.

4. There are two filters on this machine. The one that may be clogged and affecting the suction is located below the canister in the front of the machine. Simply pull ouot the tray and reomve the grey foam filter to clean. Rinse it out with warm water then allow it to dry. Replace in its tray then slide the tray back into the machine. The other filter is the HEPA filter and has nothing to do with the suction of the unit. It is an exhaust filter and does need to be changed at least once a year. It filters the air coming out of the machine. The first few times we used ours the whole house smelled "clean". Whne a new filter is placed in the machine that "clean" snmell returns. The filters are $25 apiece at Amazon.com.

5. As a maintainence item, remove the canister as though you were going to empty it. Place it on the ground, locate the two buttons (one clear plastic/one blue) on the front and back of the canister and remove the clear plasctic housing. This will allow you to clean the hundreds of little holes on the grey surface of the top of this section. (This looks like a circular colender.) To clean this, use an old toothbrush and scrub the dust and stuff into your grabage can. I do this once or twice a year. (Since I have a Shop Vac in the garage, I use this instead of a toothbrush.)

Hope this helps.
