Hi, I have a question, I just got my vacuum 3 mouths ago and it shuts-off?

Hi, I have a question, I just got my vacuum 3 mouths ago, and its a eureka pet lover model # 439 . I sent it to the local vacuum shop that eureka told me to bring it, It toke them a week to fix's it and got it back 1 week ago and they said the problem was I needed a new filter , so they charged me for that I binged it home and worked for 2 days and now it shuts off aging just like before, and I called eureka and they said that maybe the motor is bad but when I sent it in to the local vacuum shop they said that everything is good just needed a new filter, but I know there's a safety thing in the vacuum that when it get clogged it shuts-off , how can I make it that it wont shutoff anymore is there away to stop the safety thing in the vacuum, because It has a new filter and its clogged a little , show I cleaned it out and it works aging then it stops aging, what can I do? Eureka told me I have 1 year Warranty but they still wont help me, they told me to bring it back aging to that shop but I do not have the money to pay for another filter, and why do I need to buy a new filter every week Please help,

Your new filter should last more than a week but you may have to clean it thoroughly after each use. One problem with vacuums that do not have a bag is the surface area of the filter is usually not very big so it does not take much fine dust to clog the pores of the filter. If air can't pass through the filter the motor will get hot and shut off.

SOURCE: Why does the Eureka capture plus pet lovers put

I would check your fan and see if any of the blades have been fractured. I had this happen recently when my vacuum caught a screw and the sound and vibration was deafening.

A high pitch wine may be the sign of a bad bearing. Try to narrow down exactly where the noise is coming from. You may have to remove the brushroll and turn it on without it to see if it could be coming from there.

"Eureka - Pet Expert HEPA Bagless Upright Vacuum - Mystic Purple" is BRAND new and burning! I literally had soot on my hand and up my nose and mouth after using it just now. I've only had it for 24 hours....


Sounds like the beater brush is frozen and the drive belt is burning up.
Check your directions on changing the drive belt for the beater brush. When you remove the beater brush, clean as best you can. At each end of the beater brush you will find a plastic clip. These clips hold the beater brush in the vacuum. Add some WD40 between the brush and the clips. Turn the clips by hand and be sure they turn freely. Reassemble and at the same time, put on a new drive belt.

Eureka Boss 4870gz shuts off (thermal protector) after 2 or 3 min


wiggle the cord while running the vac. if it cuts off from that, then you most likely have a bad switch or cord. if the motor was bad, you would smell it. it smells aweful.

Problems with Eureka 5892AVZ Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum? the cat hair seems to plug up the filter instead of goint to the canister


You may be using the wand/hose without an attachment on it. The attachments on my dyson always allow some air to flow to by, it may be the same on the Eureka. If air flow is completely stopped the cyclone will shut down and then the hair/dust/whatever will flow to the filter. So don't let the air flow be completely shut off during use.

Vacuum shut off while in use. almost new. now it won't turn on. other outlets work so not a breaker.


Not sure if this will help, but this is how my problems began, then I noticed the handle getting very warm. This went on for a few weeks (used the vacuum maybe 4 times).
Eventually, the handle got hotter and hotter, and finally it just quit. When handle was disassembled, the wires were melted and it was toast. Ordered a switch after talking to several repair men. Talked to Eureka, too, and they were absolutely no help. Cheap wiring and switch made in China. Good luck trying to find a switch. vacuum-depot.com has switches, so you might try there, but make sure you get the 3-prong switch (same switch used on Eureka's Genesis). It is Part #27871.
