Question about The Office Equipment & Supplies
I was vacuuming as normal and pushed the power switch to turn it off....it kinda "hiccuped" for a split second then continued running. I unplugged and waited about an hour and plugged back in....it came right back on even tho power switch was in "OFF" position. I waited overnight and tried again, still no different.

Central vacs have relays in them, some stand alone, others mount on a circuit board. A stuck relay causes this type of problem. At the unit disconnect the low voltage wires, plug in your unit, does it still come on, if it does then you have a bad relay. If it doesn't then you have a problem somewhere in your low voltage wiring. One of the outlets, the wires may be touching or there is a staple casuing a short.

It is a simple fix that you need. Your belt needs to be replaced. After a period of time, the belt stretches to the point where it is still strong enough to spin the brush when you have the machine upside down to look at it, but when you put the machine down on the carpet the belt is too weak to turn the brush against the resistance of the carpet.
Most Eureka belt changes are simple to do and the belts are inexpensive.

You have a clog in the hose (or somewhere) most likely the hose though. Find the clog -clean it out-let the machine cool down and you are back in business. This is really a good feature of the Eurekas because rather than continue to run and burn up the motor it shuts off -you clean it out and your vacuum is saved.

This just happened for the second time with our 4870. It about $8 part with shipping (total of $12) from 24x7 vaccum. Pretty easy to change out.

SOURCE: Central Vac will not turn on.
These problems are nearly exclusively caused by a bad circut board and replacing it is the fix. Bad boards can cause many different effects so its nearly impossible to be sure. The 9v signal wire is not enough to short out an entire unit so it is unlikely the hose. If it is a direct connect system and you are pulling power from the 110 somehow that would cause main unit problems but that is unlikely at best. Sounds like a failed board to me.
Best of Luck
