Question about Eureka 6993 Canister Vacuum

1 Answer

Eureka 6993 power switch will not stay on

My Eureka will start but once I let go of the switch it cuts out. If I tape it down it stays on. Furthermore I am trying to open up the unit and other than three external screws there seems to be no way to open it up.

I Have a Eureka central vac that won't start.


First determine if it's the suction unit or the low voltage wiring and switches. Close the circuit to see if unit runs, if not it's an internal problem.

My Eureka Altima 2961 won't switch on


  • The first thing to try is the fuse. The best way to do this is swap the machine's fuse with that in your kettle's plug - this should also be 13 amps as on your machine. Also, it is possible that there has been a power cut; even though these are rare they can happen, so do not dismiss this possibility. There may be a problem with the electrics in your house, or the socket that you are using - try another one - or a trip switch may have activated. These should generally only be checked by a suitably qualified person! The final thing to try is to move the cable and see if the machine will come on. If the machine comes on then you will need to contact the manufacturer for further advice as this indicates a fault. You've tried all the above checks but still no power. This is where it becomes likely that the thermal cut-out safety feature has activated. To protect the motor, most vacuum cleaners contain a system that switches the unit off if it becomes too hot. This system won't allow the machine to be switched back on again until the motor has cooled down. Most thermal cut-out systems need you to leave the machine unplugged for about 2 hours. To check this for your cleaner, review the user guide supplied with it. Once you have found out how long your machine has to be left for, it is time to consider why your machine has overheated and the steps to prevent this recurring. Vacuum cleaners essentially draw air in, through a series of tubes and a dirt container or bag and then expel clean air through their exhaust. If this flow of air is interrupted then the motor will have to work harder to try and pull the same amount of air through the system, to maintain the suction performance. This is usually accompanied by an increase in the sound that the machine makes. After a while, the cleaner will reach a certain temperature and will switch off - the thermal cut-out has activated. Think of it like someone putting a hand over your mouth and asking you to breathe normally!

Eureka powerline umc-18 vacuum quit working


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.

My eureka enviro vac shut off and wont turn back on it was clogged but does not smell burnt . is there a reset or some kind of shut off when it gets clogged?


Same thing happened to me. I checked the owner's manual and it turns out the Eureka Envirovac has a built-in thermal cut-off switch. So anytime the motor gets too hot, it just shuts down. Most of the time this is because it gets plugged or the filter is too dirty. In my case, the dust basket thingy and filter were clogged beyond belief. Probably would help to clean that more regularly in hindsight. Supposedly it will turn back on after the recommended 30 minute wait.

The power paw on my vacuum machine is not working.Eureka ez kleen


The filter is not the reason it's not working. Take out screws and open Power Paw, remove fur from the roller brush on the right side, there is a small gap where fur winds around tightly, cut off with scissors or pull out with a small toothpick.

My vacuum (Eureka Bagless Model 2961 AVZ) will not START!


Had exactly the same problem with my upright Eureka Model 5893 bagless. Eventually, the handle would get hot, 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.

Eureka Boss Smart Vac 4870 evidentally overheated. Allowed unit to cool and observed a spark/smoke at outlet when it was replugged into the power outlet. Unit will not power up now. Circuit breakers in...


The wires leading to the switch inside my Eureka 4870 are fried...black and melted. Don't know why that happened, but it may be what is happening to the others listed on this site as well.

COUNT ME IN ON A CLASS ACTION IF ANYONE KNOWS A GOOD LAWYER.
Here's my story, posted on other solutions here, especially on the Model 5893; many people with burned wiring and switches. Major fire hazard imo! Okay, here's the skinny on my upright Eureka POS vacuum:
