Hello :

If you need to know how to replace the belt then follow these steps :

1: Release the handle lock, lowering the handle to the lowest position and turn the vacuum upside-down so you are looking at the bottom of the vacuum.

2:Slide the base plate patches outward from the center to unfasten the base plate, lifting the plate off the bottom of the vacuum.

3:Slide the brush roller out of the slots in the bottom of the vacuum and take the old belt off the roller as well as from off the motor shaft.

4:Remove any strings or other debris from around the brush roller and place the new belt around the roller, sliding the brush roller back into the slots on the base of the vacuum.

5:Stretch the new belt over the motor drive shaft in the center of the vacuum base and place the base plate back on the vacuum, sliding the plate latches in toward the center.

6:Turn the Eureka Power line Plus vacuum back upright and plug the electrical cord into the electrical outlet. Switch on the vacuum cleaner to test it .

Warning :

Unplug the vacuum cleaner before attempting to replace the belt .

SOURCE: smoking belt

Belt is slipping because the bearings on the beater brushes, which it turns, are jammed or full of dust.
Alternatively the belt has stretched after being overheated and needs replacing because it now slips.

SOURCE: how to put on a belt on eureka uno bagless vacuum cleaner

Unplug the vacuum.

Turn it over so you have access to the bottom of the unit (you should see the brushroll)

At the base where the "head" attaches to the body there is a small silver button that you must depress to remove it from the body. Press the button in with a screwdriver or unsharpened pencil while pulling the "head" away from the body.

Use a #2 Philips screwdriver to remove all the large screws from the bottom. They are all the same size and type so you can collect them for safekeeping without worrying about which one goes where. There are 2 smaller screws (if I remember correctly) that are for the upright lock that you do not need to remove. They will be on the small plastic piece near where the bottom brush "head" attaches to the vacuum.

Remove the clear plastic clog cover.

Gently pry the gray cover off. This shouldn't be too difficult as the cover goes loose when you remove the screws.

Flip the gray side over and you should see the innards including the brushroll, the motor, wiring, etc. Facing the assembly like you were looking head-on at the vacuum the belt should be on the right.

Pull up the far end (non-belted end) of the brushroll and then the belted end.

The brushroll should now be free and you should check the teeth on the belted end of the brushroll to ensure none are broken.

Remove the old belt from the motor (also toothed) and replace with new belt (a second spare would be handy to keep around and this is a good opportunity to clean up the air path).

Put toothed end of belt into the belt loop and stretch it a bit to get the toothed end back into place. The belt should auto adjust but just in case you may want to manually rotate the brushroll a few times after replacing the far end (non-toothed end)

Repeat the rest of it in reverse order to put it back.

Good luck!

My eureka vacuum won't suction and starts to smoke when I try to use it. It sounds like it is suctioning when I first turn it on, but after about 20 seconds it begins to smell like burning and does not...


The problem is that your belt is stretched and worn. This causes that burning smell and it also causes the vacuum to not pick up well. You need to replace the belt. Here is the belt you need and the manual with instructions:

Eureka Altima Bagless Upright Brush is not spinning


You probably just have a broken belt. The belt needs to be changed about every 6 months regardless. I believe yours takes a style EXT U(Extended life upright), or a regular Eureka "U" belt works fine too.
