Question about Eureka Vacuums

1 Answer

Eureka 4381 when switch is on lite works, but motor doesn't start

Found vacuum inlet hose to be plugged and cleaned all parts of vacuum. Don't know if motor has a thermal safety breaker or if motor burned up, because vacuum was borrowed by a relative, and they said the vacuum worked for them.

If it has an internal sensor that shut the motor off when it got hot the motor will come on after it has cooled down.

My home has a central vacuum system hook-up but no vacuum installed. My friend upgraded his central system and gave me his Eureka Mega Boss central vacuum system and the accessories, including the pow


The power head requires 120 Volts. Some hoses have a receptacle in the handle for the power head plug, and the hose has a cord at the wall inlet end that plugs into a receptacle. Some hoses have a plug at the wall inlet end that plugs into a 120Volt receptacle built into the inlet. The hose plugs into this receptacle when you push the hose into the inlet. The power for this built-in receptacle is wired with line voltage when the system is installed.

Central vac is Eureka Altima CV1801M. Tripped the circuit breaker when I turned it on. Discovered bag was full. Replaced bag and now vacuum won't power on without tripping breaker. Any idea what could...


Ok thiese are my specialty. Somemodels have a cloth filter, make sure it is clean. Also check the hose or pipes for a clogg. The best way to do this is turn the machine on, put hose in, if the motor winds up like its labouring there is a clog in ther hose. Do this with every inlet and listen for the same. If the vac. is hot it will not turn back on until it cools. Hope this helps, if not let me know. Chris

Need instructions to reassemble Eureka vacuum
Posted by TamiLynn on Jun 18, 2008
I had to completely disassemble my Eureka Whirlwind Lite Model 410 bagless vacuum due to an excessive amount of debris that collected in an inconspicuous spot and now that I've reassembled it sounds like something from the motor is rubbing inside somewhere as if I put it together incorrectly. Do you have any schematics on what the insides should look like so I can put it together properly?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The best way to get the schematics is to contact the Eureka Factory @ the listing I will give you below. Sometimes the owners manual have the schematics in the owners manual but if not they might be down loaded from the factory website or to contact them by phone

And ask for cust serv or the serv tech support or parts for the schematics. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Eukerka lite speed


There are 2 screws on the top cover, remove those and the cover comes off, then you can get to the brush roll and belt. Inspect the brush roll, make sure the ends turn freely, if not, then replace it also.

On the top cover, one on each side will be a screw, take those out and the top cover should come off. While you have it off, check the brush roll to make sure it is turning freely, and replace the belt, they stretch after a short time and will give you problems.

Eureka Boss vacuum just quit


You have a clog in the hose (or somewhere) most likely the hose though. Find the clog -clean it out-let the machine cool down and you are back in business. This is really a good feature of the Eurekas because rather than continue to run and burn up the motor it shuts off -you clean it out and your vacuum is saved.
