SOURCE: Problem getting belt around motor shaft... Eureka The BOSS

make sure the vacuum is in the upright (locked position) - when you lower the handle, this puts tention on the belt. If it is in the upright and locked position, there is plenty of clearance (unless you have the wrong belt.

SOURCE: Roller brush will not turn on Eureka "The Boss Power Plus" 12 amp

Depending on the model there will be a couple of screws on the top plastic cover. The cover lifts off and the belt is then serviceable. On some models you will need to remove some parts on the bottom too to get the roller out.
In any case just look for screws that hold the covers on and explore a bit. You can't break anything.

SOURCE: My eureka 5902 4D bagless uprights roller brush

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.

The brush roller could be worn and in need of replacement. Some Eureka uprights have a wire guide that prevents the belt from slipping off the motor shaft.

What is the cause of the loud noise in my vaccum it's a eureka boss bagless


If it's a rattling type noise, its possibly something in the fan assembly, including a broken off piece of the fan.
It could also be something loose near the roller brush, including a piece of the belt.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
There are 2 different models of the boss by Eureka – there is a standard old style upright that the belt that the belt would unscrew from the bottom of the motor and you would have to remove the top of the vacuum cover to remove the main motor and gasket assm, and then the fan has a reverse thread on the plastic fan and you would unscrew the fan after removing the belt pulley. Then you would screw on the new fan, belt pulley, replace the gasket and re-install the motor. If you have a new style with a side mount motor you would remove the top cover, the motor would be in there sideways, un-screw the motor, remove the silver tape around the fan housing and un-screw the fan housing – same as above un-screw the fan from the motor, there is a nut on the end of the fan holding that on – (remember, the fan has a reverse thread) re-install the fan. Then the fan housing, replace the silver tape, and then screw down the motor and replace the top cover, then you can test. As always free to contact your local vacuum dealer in your area in the yellow pages or contact your Eureka factory manufacturer listed below:

Vacuum doesn't go into carpet mode


If the model number is 5892AVZ, either the brush roll is bad or the brush roll motor isn't coming on to drive the brush roll. There is a circuit breaker, make sure it didn't trip, reset it if it has.

remove belt to brush roll and see if noise persists. if it stops, you probably need a brush roll. at least doing this will narrow down the fault area
