To generate strong suction, the motor has to turn at a good speed.If its a bag vacuum change bag with new one when a great deal of debris builds up in the vacuum bag, the air faces greater resistance on its way out.

My Eurika 4D bagless upright will not pick up anything. The belt is not broke but the roller won't spin and there is verry little to no suction. Still makes all the notice but won't roll as easily


You say the belt is not broken and the roller does not spin. Does the motor that spins the belt turn. If the belt does not spin and the little drive motor spins then you will burn the belt out. Try to turn the roller by hand. Could be plugged up with dirt and the roller seized. The little drive motor could be burnt out. Take all hoses and areas out that any dirt could be in. No suction means something is plugged. Even your main suction hose could be plugged.

No suction


I presume the motor is running, take the front brush roller off and check the fan is still intact. Possibly broken fan.

Suction/odor


could possibly be a bad bearing on the motor or motor itself. and possibly the end on the beater bar ( bearing or belt placement roller ) could be seized up .

Eureka vaccuum blowing out and not sucking in


Hi There,
I am going to assume you are talking about a Eureka upright vacuum.
The cause for this is generally either
A) Broken Belt - Which you can easily fix by changing belt
or
B) Blockage in the hose somewhere - Basically test the suction with the machine turned on with you attachment hose and see if you have suction. If you do check the belt and make sure you clear out any muck left around the roller.
If you need Eureka vacuum belts go to VacuumSpot.com.au

Will not pickup


Hi, what you need to do is check for suction at the inlet hose that detaches from the roller brush. If you have real good suction there and you plug it back in to the brush, it should pick up if the roller is turning. Turn it over to see if the belt is on the motor and the brush will roll when it is turned on, but be very careful not to get you're fingers near it! If you have no suction from the hoses, you have a blockage in the hoses. You can take the hose loose and try and run a long broom handle, it may be long enough to clear what ever is caught inside. Its just a matter of cleaning all hoses and making sure the belt is not broken and the bag is not full if it has a bag. Let me know what you find.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

Eureka 4870: Brush roller turns even in hose setting.


You either have the wrong size belt, most likely too small, or you have installed a new belt incorrectly. When you open the cover on the bottom of your vac, you will see the pulley that moves as you flip the switch from floors to carpet. The belt does not go around this pulley. When activated(carpet) the pulley puts tension on the belt causing it to turn the roller. When switched back to hard floors, the belt looses tension allowing motor to cause suction but disabling roller. Also, the dial on top of vac is only to direct suction, not for disabling roller

There is no suction to the floor sweeper. The


Sounds like you have two separate problems here.  If the brush bar does not rotate, probably the belt is broken. This is easily replaced, but you need to be precise about which model you've got so you get the right belt.
Loss of suction is due either to a blockage or, quite often, to a split in the short length of clear plastic hose that leads back from the brush bar enclosure.  Repair is possible but replacement is better.
If you need more help, post here again.

No suction in floor attachment *& brush not turning


Lay the machine on the floor with the front side down. Undo the 3 large plastic screws with a coin of some sort, then remove bottom panel. On the back of carrage where the roller bar sits their should be a clear plastic tube check this tube is free of dirt. Check around inside the carrage for hair string etc. Check belt for breaks and swelling in the rubber pull ont roller bar and check the end caps on the roller can spin freely. If not pull off the end caps these will be very tight and wash out all dirt and fluff, dry thourley and lubricate centre pin and end caps inside the roller with baby oil or wd-40. replace roller bar and belt, turn roller bar twice slowly to centralise the belt, replace bottom panel making sure that the clips on front are sitting in their holes. fastern the plastic screws and leave two hours before usage
