Re: weird noise

Check to make sure that the hose and the inlet down by the brush roll are open and not clogged. It could be a bad bearing in the motor, if so, you are looking at replacing the motor.

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.

We just moved in - the house is about 9 years old. I have a Eureka Mega Boss central vac - looks like model # is CV20220. 12.4 amps, 120 volts. Can't figure out what type of bags I need. Can you...

Well, for this unit you will need any of the following bags,

Eureka genuine Part# 90610
Eureka replacement (Central vac bag)
another genuine bag style called CV-1, and/or CV-2
Kenmore Central vac bags

Most of the bags there are available at your local vacuum shop, and sometimes even Sears. The Kenmore central vac bag is, can and will fit your Eureka Mega Boss. Prices range on these bags anywhere from $12-$20 for packages of 3. Generally you will replace a bag once every 3-4 months.

Good luck,

I have a Eureka The Boss Smartvac. I was vacuuming and it just went off. It was on one second and then off the next. I changed the bag thinking it was full but it didn't go back on. What's happening?

it overheated, just have to wait a few minutes, maybe change bag and have a look at filter in bottom of chamber where bag is located, clean it if its really dirty. lack of flow will cause the vacuum to overheat.

My eureka has no suction at all

try taking out the bag and checking to see if the inlet port onthe bottom of the inside of the bag bay is giving any sucion or if you can feel air rushing past your fingers. if there is then there is eiher a full bag, or a clog in oneo f the inlet ports going to the bag that the vacuum cannot clear. also make sure your filters are clear of debree and clean.

Eureka 5849A Boss bagless upright

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
