EUREKA Bagless altima shooting out debris and not picking it up

This is my 2nd Eureka bagless vacuum. Frustrated with it's performance and about to call it quits for all eurekas. PROBLEM: Instead of it sucking up debris (random pet hair, potato chip crumbs, etc usual stuff) it spits out debris sending it elsewhere all over the friggin floor.... whats that about? Have cleaned all tubing, vents, screen, cleared out anything possible. H-E-L-PPPP!!!

My eureka vacuum won't suction and starts to smoke when I try to use it. It sounds like it is suctioning when I first turn it on, but after about 20 seconds it begins to smell like burning and does not...


The problem is that your belt is stretched and worn. This causes that burning smell and it also causes the vacuum to not pick up well. You need to replace the belt. Here is the belt you need and the manual with instructions:

I am looking for the filter for the Eureka bagless Altima vaccum cleaner


There should be an toll free # to call for eureka and they can direct you to the nearest authorized eureka service center in you area. If its a new model places like wallmart wont stock it. There are so many vacuum makes and models its impossible for any one business to stock every single bag, belt, filter etc. for them all. But a decent vacuum repair shop should be able to get it for you.
