The way I resolved the problem was to remove the cover at the end of the power paw. Then remove the so side black covers for the shaft. Remove any debris and hair and then put back together. This solved my problem.

Can you tell me how to change the belt on my eureka AS3001A vacuum. It is belt 75914 for the pet power paw attachment. Please help,


Swivel the collar at the smaller end where it attaches to the vacuum which will allow the clear plastic cover to come off which will allow you to pull out the brushroll and belt to replace it. Reverse to reassemble.

How do you replace the belt on the pet power paw vacuum


1. Pry off adjustable clear cover with flathead screwdriver.
2. Unscrew 2 Philips screws holding power paw together.
3. Place tips of needle nose pliers into the two holes on each of the black round pieces on the ends of either end of the roller. Twist and the black pieces will release.
4. Remove roller, use needle nose pliers or awl to dig out any hair wrapped up in the roller or especially the ends of the roller at the metal pins.
5. Replace belt and put everything back together in the same order you took it apart.

The power paw on my vacuum machine is not working.Eureka ez kleen


The filter is not the reason it's not working. Take out screws and open Power Paw, remove fur from the roller brush on the right side, there is a small gap where fur winds around tightly, cut off with scissors or pull out with a small toothpick.

I have a eureka power paw that keeps breaking belts. there doesnt seem to be a part that keeps the belt in place


Make sure the roller and turbine bushings are clear of obstructions (hair, etc) and spin without excess resistance. As for a lack of barrier or belt guide, make sure that the bushing blocks on either end of the roller (and turbine, but most importantly the roller) are installed identical to each other (otherwise the roller may be in on an angle causing the belt to mis-track). Possibly a part may be missing or improperly installed, but not likely. What's important to remember is Eureka (Electrolux Homecare Products) designed the Power Paw as a cheap, quick source of income to add onto their uprights to cash into the ever-lucrative market of pet owners dealing with pet hair. Like their upright vacuums, Eureka/lux know extremely well the importance of designing their product with a very FINITE life-expectancy, and hence expecting this product to be anything of a long-term or durable solution is evidence only of you having been mislead by marketing. Of all the turbine-driven tools in use today, this one is the most inexpensive, disposable I've had the pleasure of working with. I got one free when they hit the scene. I took it back to work still in the package after seeing its track record evolve.

Long-term solution if you love these turbine-type tools? (and you should, they're great and solve major issues. I own several different ones and am very attached to them as attachments!). Go to a vacuum store and find a robust, long-life version of what these little things are trying to be. They're in a higher dollar-range, but so's a Power Paw if you start replacing it every few months. Ask for one made by Wessel-Werk. German engineering, been around for decades. The made-in-china knock-offs are better than the power paw, but if you're up for it, the actual tool made by Wessel is the benchmark by miles. The only thing possibly comparable in long-term quality and durability is called a RugRat by guys in our industry, and sold by Vacuflo and Kirby and such for decades and decades now. Most vacuum vendors should be able to hook you up. :)

Eureka 2971 vacuum


The duster on this unit is just that a duster the holder for it is to vacuum it off when your not using it it doesn't have anything to do with the vacuum cleaner really. As for the power pawl it is a air driven upholstery nozzle the suction air passes through a turbine which in turn spins the brush agitating whatever it is your cleaning ie. sofa,steps. Simply attach it to the end of the hose and your off just be sure to try and clean any hair or debris for the unit it will not work if the air flow is cut off.

Smell/suction


The brushroll may spin when looking at it but stops when pressure of the floor is applied. The belts stretch, so they look fine but are not. The smell - if it's a rubber smell - would also be the belt. Some, or most, brushrolls can get hair in the ends that could also cause a smell and belt problem.

Burning smell/lost suction


Is the brush roll turning while on the carpet. If the belt is old, then it has stretched and will slip causing a rubber smell. But if it is an electrical smell, then your motor is failing and will need to be replaced.
