Question about Eureka 5849A Boss Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Mine is actually the BOSS 5851 by Eurkea. Wide-track, 12-amp. The belt mechanism breaks easily. I may be missing a part that keeps it in place. It isn't easy to get too. The motor runs and I can push but the drive doesn't go probably due to belt. But why then does the cannister-like suction hose function just fine. Does anyone know where I can get an owner's manual on this unit? If U know, please email me. greyghosts and G mail dot com.
The top comes off to get to the belt and brush roll. Did you check the brush roll to make sure that the ends turn freely, or is one not turning, the belt is a lon life "U" part #61120A. The brush roll is what drives the vacuum, but if brush roll or belt is bad, then it won't drive it.

Often on these models the right rotating, hexagonal clip on the brushroll breaks off, or worse, melts off from faulty alignment. Check out the Eureka website to buy a new roll for under $20.00.
