Question about Eureka Sanitaire S661 Bagged Upright Vacuum

Open Question

Sanitaire Model S661 Type A, heavy duty commercial motor, 8840 watts. A large nail was accidentally vacuumed. There was immediate noise, and then it smelled like smoke. We can see after removing the bottom plate that the translucent plastic fan was completely broken. Can it be replaced? We have no repair service nearby.

One of 2 ways, remove the plate on the bottom, the is a clear cover covering the fan. Just unbolt the belt pulley and remove the fan. If there is no cover covering the fan, then you will have to remove the top, take out the 4 screw holding the motor and turn motor over, then you can remove the fan.

SOURCE: How do I remove motor from a Eureka 4870 GZ vac so I can replace

I don't know the 4780, but I do know eureka uses two basic types of motor housings:.. One, on the sanitaire is pretty straightforward with 3 screws on the topside after removing the topcover.
The second type involves splitting the case, since the motor is mounted vertically and is a more involved project necessitating removing most everything. Here is a schematic, and while you can see there is a lot to pull off to do this, it's not impossible!

bear in mind, however, a replacement vac should only cost 50-70 dollars, so whatever your time is worth...

How can I stop the squealing noise in the motor on my Sanitaire wide track commercial vacuum? It's making a squealing the minute I turn it on


Is it the motor or the brush roll? Remove the brush roll and belt and see if it still squeals. If not clean or replace the brush roll and get a new belt. Inspect the fan to insure there is not something stuck in it. If it's the motor you can try to clean it, make sure there is not something stuck in the motor causing the noise.

How to download an owners manual or sanitaire red mighty mite model 3683?


There really isn't much to know about this vacuum in the owner's manual. It has attachments, doubles as a blower by attaching hose to back end. Practice the usual safety standards like don't use near water. Ck the prefilter on bag changes. That's about it.

The motor is sounding real loud lately like its straining to operate, any ideas?


It could be a worn belt. Sometimes worn belts can cause the vacuum to make funny noises. I have listed a link to the owners manual and a link to the belt you need.

Hello, I have a Eureka Sanitaire upright vacuum. It is not picking up as well it usual and I notice it no longer has that deep motor sound. What do you suggest?


Does there seem to be good air-flow and suction? If not, look for a blockage somewhere. Otherwise (and more likely because of what you say about the sound), look to the brush roller. Does it rotate when the machine's switched on? If so, maybe the bristles are worn and no longer make contact with the carpet properly. If not, the belt that drives the brush roller is broken and must be replaced. Your Owner Manual will tell you how to do this.  Good luck!

Motor running extremely hot


You might want to check the brushroll. It may need to be replaced. The brushroll end caps on your model should come off easily and if there is a collection of hair, etc under them and you can clean it out, do so. If it is impossible to clean out, you must replace the brush. You can get one at any Eureka/Sanitaire dealer or warranty station. If you have a model 1934, you can upgrade to a better metal brushroll which won't give you as much trouble.
