Question about Eureka Whirlwind 4388 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Bought the 'eureka whirlwind lite' vacuum at a rummage sale - looked to be in good shape & sounded fine when turned on. doesn't really seem to **** dirt up when used tho. brushes turn & all that, but where exactly is the suction part? (doesn't seem like the rolling brush area actually has suction) i'm confused about the whole thing, & don't know if i just bought something that's all clogged, etc. (the guy didn't know anything about the filter, which i thought was weird) any simple things i can try?

On the top cover, there are holes at the front on both sides, there is a screw on each side in one of the holes. Take the out, and the cover should come off, then you can get to the brush roll and belt.

If the belt isn't turning then it has snapped. Check the top of the hood for two or three crosshead screws; two at the front and one under neath by the left hand side if looking at the upright from the front. Its easy to fix if you take your time and you have a spare drive belt. Check EBAY in your country for spares.
After you put a new belt on make sure the roller beater is completely free of threads as this will keep the belt longer for running.

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
