Question about Eureka Vacuums

Open Question

I have a Eureka 4870 GZ Upright Smartvac. The power cord has broken just where it goes into the housing on the back. I can't figure out how to open this compartment to pull out the old power cable.

I have opened up the front and back of the vacuum, but I dont see a screw, slide or tab to open this compartment.

Tear in Eureka Upright "The Boss" 4870
Posted by kdunnett on Jun 07, 2008
I have a tear in the hose of an upright Eureka "The Boss" 4870 vacuum. I cannot find how to release the parts I need to get the hose out and put in a new hose (which I already have) I've searched the Eureka site and the owner's manual - nothing about how to replace the hose itself. Thanks in advance.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Eureka 431A Optima Bagless Upright Vacuum. In answer to your question, the owner’s manual may or may not give an example to install the hose only, but on most vacuums the hose sometimes will screw in to the hose cuff on both ends unless if it is a hose assm then it will then twist and turn. Check with the
Eureka website and have them send out a schematic and owner’s manual for you so that you can install your hose properly. Sometimes you have to place hose glue on the end of each side in order for the hose to screw in properly. the website address will be listed below and they certainly should supply you with the owners’ manual and maybe a schematic of the parts breakdown that also may help. If not; check with your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area. 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.

SOURCE: Broken on/off switch

I have the same vacuum and the on/off switch wasn't working any longer so I took the cover off to find out that the wiring got so hot that it melted through the wire coating and plastic frame.

Brush roller spins until it touches the carpet, then stops.


That means that the belt is stretched or worn. Here is a link to the replacement belts you need and a manual which has instructions:

Eureka the Boss SmartVac just turned off and won't turn on


Make sure it is not the electrical outlet that has tripped. If not then you basically have 3 choices. Cord, switch, motor. A service tech. should be able to diagnose.

How do I remove motor from a Eureka 4870 GZ vac so I can replace


I don't know the 4780, but I do know eureka uses two basic types of motor housings:.. One, on the sanitaire is pretty straightforward with 3 screws on the topside after removing the topcover.
The second type involves splitting the case, since the motor is mounted vertically and is a more involved project necessitating removing most everything. Here is a schematic, and while you can see there is a lot to pull off to do this, it's not impossible!

bear in mind, however, a replacement vac should only cost 50-70 dollars, so whatever your time is worth...
