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

Hi. The roller brush won't turn so I assume a belt inside is broken or disconnected. Problem is I don't see a way to get inside the housing. Any ideas?

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.

My Eureka The boss Smartvac Model #4870 roller brush won't turn even on the highest setting and the belt smells hot. we took the belt off. How can you tell if it needs replaced?


Just by what you explained I can tell that it needs to be replaced. The belt doesn't have to be broken to need replacing, if it is stretched and worn then it will slip on the motor shaft and not turn the brush roll and get hot. Here is a link to the belts you need and the manual which has instructions:

First, make sure you have the right belt, second, i am thinking that you are not lineing the roller up right, it will only fit one way. look at the ends of the roller and the grooves where it slides in, you should be able to see clearly how it goes.

No manual


Take the hood off of the unit, and remove the brush roller and belt. Wrap the new belt around the shaft of the motor and slide the brush roller inside the loop of the belt. Use the brush roller as leverage to stretch the belt out and slide the brush roller back into the roller housing. Once you have it installed correctly, make sure the roller and belt are free, by spinning it by hand. If that belt is pinched it will just burn it up when you turn the unit on.

Good luck

My daughters is doing the same thing and the plastic at the ends of the brush bar melted just enough for it not to turn properly. You might want to chech that.
