Question about Eureka Smartvac 4870 Bagged Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

My enviro vac is being stubborn

I bought a Eureka Enviro Vac about a year ago and it worked great...until a few weeks ago- the belt on it broke after i loaned it to my sister. I figured the belt needed to be changed so i changed it. I turned it on and the belt did not spin but the metal piece it hooks on did and it got very hot and broke the belt in about 15 seconds. The hose still works and sucks up fine but the big part (i think its called a deck) does not **** up at all. I had the warranty on it but i lost the paperwork in a move so i cannot take it to get it fixed and i am too broke to get a new vacuum. PLEASE HELP! :)

First , spin the brush roll by hand and see if it spins freely. Then remove it.
CLEAN OUT ANY HAIR OR THREAD UNDER THE CAPS Inspect the end caps , if one is melted you will need to replace the cap if available or the entire brush roll assembly.
The "metal piece" is the motor shaft. Clean any burned rubber of with fine wet dry sand paper, then install a fresh belt, using the brush for leverage to stretch the belt into place. Rotate the brush again to be sure it is not binding and that the belt is not pinched anywhere.
Buy 2 belts and keep your spare inside the hood of the vac.

What is the difference between the 2 eureka enviro steamers: the 310 model, and the 313A? are they doing the same job, and which one is a better buy i.e., does the job, and does not cost an arm and a leg...


Greetings,

The Eureka 310 Envirosteamer is no longer made. Eureka discontinued this particular model several years ago. It was a very highly rated steam mop at the time, so Eureka came out with a new model that had a very upgrades which was the Eureka 312, which is also now discontinued. These two old models are discontinued because Eureka has introduced the 313A which is the best model they've made to date. This is the most current, and only upright steam mop that Eureka makes currently, so if you are going to buy a Eureka, the 313A is the one that you want to buy. It's a great steamer I think. We do offer a 60 day full money back guarantee with any purchase, I hope you will consider us when you're ready to go for it.

Please feel free to request a clarification here on Fixya if you have any questions I can answer further for you.

I hope this was helpful information for you. If this was helpful, please rate it as helpful by clicking on the thumbs up icon in the lower right hand corner.

Thank you so much,

Brush stopped rotating and little suction on unit.


Even though the brush is spinning, you probably need to replace the belt2_bing.gif because it is stretched. It is probably slipping on the beater bar..

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.
