Question about Eureka 5892AVZ Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Horrible sounds on carpet setting!

My vacuum is working on the bare floor setting (but not that well), and has great suction with the hose. But! When I try to turn it on carpet setting, it starts making really terrible terrible sounds like something is hitting against something else inside the vacuum cleaner. I turned it on and looked in while it was running and the carpet roller wasn't spinning, it wasn't sucking, AND it was making the terrible sound. BUT I couldn't see what was hitting what. Suggestions?

Sounds like what ours is doing. we took off the roller, and if you look on one side, it's melted. we're looking at either replacing the roller and seeing if that helps...and hoping it doesn't happen again...or we may just go out and replace the vacuum entirely. haven't decided.

There some screws from the bottom to remove then the top cover will come off, then you can check it over to see what the problem is.

Brush roller works on carpet setting but not on floor setting. have already cleaned roller. suction is great. just won't do anything on floor setting (all 3 settings)


Check the arms that make the roller go up and down to achieve the settings. There may be something clogged in there.GOOD LUCK FRIEND

Eureka Optima Lightweight suction weak on bare floor, hose only works when dial is turn to floor?


I think it is normal. My favorite setting is the dial is turned to bare floor. If you set your vacuum to hose, then you need to adjust the height (do not set the dial to the bare floor).

When the vacum is set on the bare floor mode, the on/off light blinks and the roller brushes stop working


This is normal. The roller brushes aren't needes on bare floors. They are used to brush lint, hair, etc. from the carpet that the suction itself wouldn't get.

Every thing clean & sucking well except wont pickup off floor. brush in good condition &rotating. any answers would help.


This is hard to answer without see it in person. Check and make sure there is no broken pieces on the bottom where you could loose suction. Also make sure you have the machine set correctly for either bare floors or carpet. If it is on set on carpet and yopu are cleaning bare floors you might loose suction there also. Also make sure you check all pathways for the dirt to get to the canister fo any signs of blockage. Are all the filters in place like they should be? Sounds like the suction is getting diverted from the floor somehow, make sure everything is secure and locked in place on the canister. Also check on the top of the handle and make sure the little purple screen is moved back into place covering the top of the handle, you could be sucking more air in thru this inlet and not enough off the floor! This is usually moved out of the way when you connect the hose to the handle for your attatchments. It may still be pulled back and needs to be moved forward into place!

My beater bar will not spin when the handle is lowered? But there's suction thru the hose when the handles upright


The motor that spins the beater bar is connected to a tiny switch, if that switch is not operating that could be the problem. If the motor is not spinning, that could be your problem (seized), or if you have a broken belt that could be your problem.

Hope this helps

Vacuum not picking up dirt


The neck in your power head is likely clogged. Disconnect from the wand and look inside. Also check the wand.Since you have suction on the bare floor the hose is likely not blocked.

Hoover savvy no suction on carpet setting


Check to make sure you hear the vac. motor is running when in that position. The switch in the handle could be bad if it is not.
