Question about Top Vacuums

Open Question

I have the eureka- shop boss - model 2812. The blower appears to be working but the suction is very weak.

When I connect the hose for suction, the top connection still blows and the suction is weak.

SOURCE: Hose has no suction

Most uprights need to be in the up-right locked position to enable the hose pickup.

Your belt is probably broken. Check your belt and make sure your brushroll has not seized. If both of those check out ok, (because the smartvac belt doesn't stretch,) the belt tensioner assembly may have gone bad.

SOURCE: My Eureka Whirlwind Plus is not sucking up

Hi,
It sounds like you just have a clog going on... maybe a sock or something. You might have to do a little disassembly of the roller to get to it.
Hope this hlelps... Good luck

My eureka boss 5856 has suction through the hose, but the cyclone isn't spinning and it will not pick up anything. I have tried using it normally and with just the hose and it will not pick up.


Is the suction strong or weak?
Have you cleaned or replaced the filter?

A plugged filter will restrict air flow and cause vacuums to lose the ability to work properly.

Eureka Optima Lightweight suction weak on bare floor, hose only works when dial is turn to floor?


I think it is normal. My favorite setting is the dial is turned to bare floor. If you set your vacuum to hose, then you need to adjust the height (do not set the dial to the bare floor).

Eureka Smart Vac The Boss no suction from either setting. I have taken it apart trying to see if it was clogged but it isn't. Checked the hose it is not sliced.


Remove the bag cover and feel for suction above the motor. If their is suction there then check the bag compartment is sealed. You can drop a coin down the hose to check for blockages all the way to where the bag attaches.

The suction for carpet cleaning is great but there is very little suction through the hose. I have cleaned out the hose but there is still very little suction. What else can I do?


Have you tried cleaning the hose from the vacuum end, the end that feeds the sweepings into the cannister/bag? Might be something close to that end of the hose. Also, one reason for a hose not to work is the possibility of a cut or broken hose or a loose connection. The closer an opening like this might be to the vacuum end of the hose, the less suction the unit will have through the hose as it will pull air through the hole/break easier than through the full length of the hose.

I tried the electrical-tape-around-the-wooden-spindle technique. After a minute or so, it's back to functioning normally.

Eureka Boss - no suction in upright postion


when mine does that I find that the hose is not connected properly where it comes off to use the attachments.
If there is suction there, it is a straight shot to the floor unless it is loose where it fits together.
