Assuming it does not need emptying, then it sounds like a dangerous electrical fault. Recently similar thing happened to me, (different vac cleaner), and if I'd left it on any longer I'm told that it would have burst into flames. Be careful.

SOURCE: Vacuum Cleaner sucking dirt out of the cannister instead of into it.

You didn't give you model number, but check by the brush roll to see if the inlet there is clogged, hose still has a clog, filters are bad and need replacing. Does the brush roll turn, belts stretch after short usuage and will not drive the brush roll under load, may need to replace the belt.

SOURCE: My vacuum doesnt **** dirt

Probably have a clogged intake from the beater bar thru to the vac system.. Try this.. with the vac unplugged, flip the vac over so you can get to the bottom of the vac head near where the brush rotates.. then depending on the model.. remove the cover to access the brush ( called a beater bar).
Once the cover has been removed ( may require removing several screws) .. look at the beater bar and make sure the belt is hooked up.. you should be able to lift that brush assembly out of the housing to expose the duct where dirt travels into the bag.. that path ( including the flex hose) is probably clogged up...clean out any debris found there.. ( if you have access to another vacuum..try sucking that junk out with it or use a stick or coat hanger to pry anything lodged in there out.. When that is clear, reassemble things and try it again.. Hope this helps you

SOURCE: vacuum is sucking but dirt is just shooting out behind the vacuum

I bought this same vacuum and have all the same problems. It seems it is always the filter but if it out and use the air hose and clean it it really really well then it sucks really well it will pick up anything but who wants to always do this. As one person asked about the bare floors not working well I read on another blog that company knows it does not work well on barefloors but has failed to metion this. One more thing besides the clog always being in the back were the hose connects I always find a clog in the yellow part above the canister. I always pull out so much crap there. Oh sorry one more thing I found that helped with the power was that I completely took the duster part completely off and just use the hose. Hope you have better luck than I do or did..

That means that the belt2_bing.gif is starting to wear. When the belt starts to stretch it can't turn the roller brush against the resistance of the carpet and therefore doesn't pick up well. You simply need to change the belt. Here is a link to the belt you need and to the manual:

The eureka model # 4703D does not **** although the motor is running


The vacuum cleaner probably is clogged. Look especially in the opening behind the roller and follow the path to the bag/container. If you have a pet that sheds, you can clog a vacuum quickly

How do I change the belt on Eureka Pet Pal


Unlike most vacuums, this one the screws are on the top of your base. There are two screws one on each side. When looking at the front of the vacuum right side screw is located above the s in 12amps and on the left side screw is located above the p in pet. Now keep in mind it's not directly above the letters look about 2 inches up. Unscrew them, take cover off. Once you have done that pull up on the brush rod. Maybe tough if ur vacuum has a lot of built up dirt. Next put belt on metal prong then put on brush rod. Place rod back in its spot, gonna need little bit of muscle. Then put top back on and replace screws. Plug in flip bottom just to make sure brush is spinning. If u have followed steps this should work. I hope this helped took me forever to find the screws because I have always had vacuum with them on the bottom and internet was no help to me. Good luck
