Question about Vacuums
I've had a Eureka Optima lightweight upright for 7 months. One day while vacuuming the carpet in the living room, the motor started making a grinding sound. I thought something was caught in the rollers. After cleaning the small amount of fibers from the rollers, the sound continued. I have no suction. What could have happened?
I have only two floors that are carpeted in my apartment.
I don't use the vacuum cleaning alot. Please send my some information that could save my vacuum cleaner.
Check to make sure that your agitator still spins. (Agitator = brush). If your agitator still spins, it eliminates your belt and agitator as likely culprits. The last possible solution would be that your vacuum is clogged. The grinding sound might be a motor-related issue or could possibly mean your bearings are going out. Check the bearings of the agitator and the motor of the vacuum.
Accessing to the agitator and belt can be done by removing the bottom cover of your vacuum. There are 2 scews that are holding the bottom cover to the head of the unit. Remove these 2 scews and the bottom cover should snap off.
