The bearings in the motor needs to be checked,
or the impeller is damage.

Doesn't pick up


This could be a few reasons. Check and make sure your bag is not full of dirt, a full bag will make your vacuum's suction worse. Next check for clogs of dirt and debris. Check the nozzle and brushroll too. If you find no clogs and the brushroll and belt look good, it may be your vacuum fan is damaged and needs to be replaced.

My Oreck XL has quit sucking. The brush turns but


Same problem here with XL9100. Bag would not expand implying no suction. Motor ran and brushes turned. Easy disassembly using common tools found that a plastic bag had been sucked up and caused a blockage prior to the impeller. Cleaned up, reassembled, and everything worked fine after that.

Hello, I have a Eureka Sanitaire upright vacuum. It is not picking up as well it usual and I notice it no longer has that deep motor sound. What do you suggest?


Does there seem to be good air-flow and suction? If not, look for a blockage somewhere. Otherwise (and more likely because of what you say about the sound), look to the brush roller. Does it rotate when the machine's switched on? If so, maybe the bristles are worn and no longer make contact with the carpet properly. If not, the belt that drives the brush roller is broken and must be replaced. Your Owner Manual will tell you how to do this.  Good luck!

How to replace fan impeller on old Hoover upright. Taking off the belt pulley is giving me the problem.


Depends on how old it is ... if it is real old try putting a open end wrench on metal belt pully, and then hit wrench with a hammer i think counter clockwise to loosen

Motor running extremely hot


You might want to check the brushroll. It may need to be replaced. The brushroll end caps on your model should come off easily and if there is a collection of hair, etc under them and you can clean it out, do so. If it is impossible to clean out, you must replace the brush. You can get one at any Eureka/Sanitaire dealer or warranty station. If you have a model 1934, you can upgrade to a better metal brushroll which won't give you as much trouble.

Eureka Enviro Vac Model 4470 Not Sucking


First, check to see if there is suction without the hose on the base. If not, and there is no blockage, the problem is likely a damaged impeller, the small fan that makes the suction. That will have to be replaced.
