There are two screws just to the rear of the accessory compartment. There are also two hidden screws under the cord retractor lever. I tried to get the retractor off by pulling upward on it, but it just wouldn't come. It is not screwed down but held by friction via its hinges. The way I got at the last two screws was by drilling a couple of holes thru the plastic cord retractor lever - about 1" from the end of the lever on left side (looking from the rear of vac) and about 0.5" from the other end of lever.

SOURCE: Suction not working in upright
You will have A blockage in either the wand or hose, completely remove them from machine the hose unclips at the bottom back of machine,
Now switch machine on with this removed if machine sounds ok then remove the blockage from hose or wand.
If machine still poor suction & noisey with hose & wand removed check the (U) shaped inspection port for blockages.
Let me know how you get on.

Just had the same problem. Switches and motor checked ok, then found the circuit board on the left hand side of cleaner. The fuse (on the board) looked ok, but when removed and checked for continuity I found it had blown. The problem I have now found is that the fuse cannot be ordered only the complete board. Hope it gets the brush roller going again.

The same thing happened to me about a year ago with this very model.
The issue on mine was a small, copper-colored metal wheel that attaches to the end of the brush roller. You'll need to remove the top cover (there are several screws).
Once it's off, you should see the belt, the beater brush, and the metal gear. The gear didn't fit correctly - so the motor just spins without moving the brush. I ended up going to the store and buying superglue that withstands high tempuratures, then gluing the gear to the motor's shaft... and hammering the thing into place before the glue 'set' too much. ...Not fun, but it's working and has been ever after. I can take photos of the thing if need be.

Tips for a great answer:
Locate and purchase the correct belt for your Eureka vacuum cleaner from the local grocery or department store. Vacuum belts come in different sizes according to your model of vacuum. Check your owner's manual or the vacuum itself for your model number.
Turn your vacuum cleaner over so that the bottom of the unit is facing you. Remove the cover plate from the bottom by undoing the screws that are holding it in place with a screwdriver.
Locate the belt pulley rod near the back of the vacuum base coming out of the motor. With the vacuum cleaner base turned upside down and facing you, the motor and pulley rod should be up near the top of the base.
Slide the vacuum brush roller out of the slots at the bottom of the vacuum base and remove the old belt from the brush roller and pulley rod. With the brush roller off of the unit, clean the brush by removing any strings or cords wrapped around the tube.
Install the new belt by looping it over the belt pulley rod next to the motor and then looping around the end of the brush roller in the belt slot. Hold the brush roller and pull back on it to tighten the belt while you slide the roller back into the slots on the vacuum base.
Replace the base cover plate by snapping it back into place and securing it with screws. Turn vacuum back upright and turn it on to test the belt and verify the unit is working
