Question about Eureka Smartvac 4870 Bagged Upright Vacuum

Eureka Boss 4870gz shuts off (thermal protector) after 2 or 3 min

I have checked for any plugged areas, changed the bag and have run the vac without the filter and it still shuts off. Is it possible that the motor is bad or that the thermistat needs repaced or ??????

Wiggle the cord while running the vac. if it cuts off from that, then you most likely have a bad switch or cord. if the motor was bad, you would smell it. it smells aweful.

Where is the reset button the eureka the boss smart vac


There are many different models of Boss Smart vac so I can't say for sure without your model number but it most likely does not have a reset button. It may have a reset switch built into the motor.

Lately as I'm vacuuming, my vacuum will turn off. I can start it again, and it will shut off again. It seems like a power issue. Happens different places in the home, so it is not the outlet.


Some vacs shut off when the dirt bag is full Check your brush area and see if there is dirt or bits of string like things wrapped around the brush or the brush ends. This will cause the machine to shut down as well if there is pressure holding the brushes. Will it run if you wiggle the plug if so you could have a bad plug as well.

Eureka Smart Vac The Boss no suction from either setting. I have taken it apart trying to see if it was clogged but it isn't. Checked the hose it is not sliced.


Remove the bag cover and feel for suction above the motor. If their is suction there then check the bag compartment is sealed. You can drop a coin down the hose to check for blockages all the way to where the bag attaches.

We just moved in - the house is about 9 years old. I have a Eureka Mega Boss central vac - looks like model # is CV20220. 12.4 amps, 120 volts. Can't figure out what type of bags I need. Can you...


Well, for this unit you will need any of the following bags,

Eureka genuine Part# 90610
Eureka replacement (Central vac bag)
another genuine bag style called CV-1, and/or CV-2
Kenmore Central vac bags

Most of the bags there are available at your local vacuum shop, and sometimes even Sears. The Kenmore central vac bag is, can and will fit your Eureka Mega Boss. Prices range on these bags anywhere from $12-$20 for packages of 3. Generally you will replace a bag once every 3-4 months.

Good luck,
Mark
