Re: eureka altima vacuum cleaner

This happens to me...I am actually on here to figure out why the hard-to-find belt keeps breaking...What usually works for me is an air compressor so it will force the clog out, or you can try another vacuum or shop vac if you have one, or could try with those flexible bristle brushes that are made for lint screens, under tight spaces like the Fridge. Good Luck

Usually a clog is in the hose, or in the inlet down by the brushroll.

I have a eureka altima bagless and it wont pick up dirt i clean it and everything it just wont work

The belt is probably worn, stretched or broken that is why it is not picking up. Here is a link to the owners manual which has instructions and a link to the belt you need.

I am looking for the filter for the Eureka bagless Altima vaccum cleaner

There should be an toll free # to call for eureka and they can direct you to the nearest authorized eureka service center in you area. If its a new model places like wallmart wont stock it. There are so many vacuum makes and models its impossible for any one business to stock every single bag, belt, filter etc. for them all. But a decent vacuum repair shop should be able to get it for you.

Eureka Altima is smoking!

Eureka Altima is smoking!

Help! My vacuum is smoking. It won’t work anymore and starts to smoke as soon as it gets turned on.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.

Eureka Altima Upright Vacuum Model #2996AVS – it is probably doing 2 things, it could be the belt and or brushroll and the easiest ay to check is to remove the belt and see if the motor smokes, if the motor is fine then buy a new belt and check the brushroll to see if the brushroll spins freely, there are bearings in the brushroll and thread and hair get bound up in the ends and needs to be cleaned out. So #1, check the belt – no smoke from the motor then check the brushroll to see if it spins freely then changed the belt. If the motor smokes check your purchase date it may still be under the one year factory warranty from the dop. #2. Either clean or replace the brushroll and belt. If you have any further questions, feel free to contact your local vac dealer. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
