Question about Eureka 411A Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

I have a Eureka Boss Model 411... I need to know where the reset button is for the suction motor. The canister was clogged on the backside, I didn't see it and the suction motor shut off. I have cleared the obstruction, but don't know where the reset is for that motor. I know how to reset the brush head motor.

If your vacuum motor overheats, it will stop working. it will start working again once it cools.

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.

Eureka boss sucked up water and won't work


The water probably got into the motor causing it to "burn" out. The motor will need to be replaced, but by the time you include labor cost it may be cheaper just to replace the vacuum.

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.

If the motor is running, there should be suction. Possible problems depend on whether it's a canister or upright and are:
A clog in the hose, UR or canister. Detach hose. Drop small coin in one end and lift hose causing it to roll out the other. If it does, no clog in hose. Drop same coin into hose opening on power head. If it rolls out, no clog in PN.
Broken fan blades, UR. Needs to be taken to shop for repair/replacement.

A reset button is for use if the motor isn't running, so won't have anything to do with the suction.

Buckaboo, you say the debris no longer collects in the cup? Does that mean you don't have suction as well?

The brushroll has it's own motor so the brushes spinning doesn't necessarily mean there's not a problem with the wiring, the switch, or the motor.

Assuming you haven't inadvertantly set the selector switch to floor when you wanted to use the hose or vice versa, try the following.

Start with the motor/impeller first. Take the dust canister off and turn the vacuum on. It doesn't matter if you turn on the brushroll or not as you're looking for suction.

With the vacuum on feel for exhaust out the front of the motor (by the secondary handle on the bottom. Also put your hand over the area where the dust canister sits. You should feel strong exhaust and suction respectively.

If not, then you should take it in to a technician as going any further requires disassembly.

If you feel there's enough suction, then it may be as simple as a clog. This vacuum has a particularly easy air path to check. There's a clear snap-on door on the bottom to check the brushroll and neck. Then from there it's a straight shot through the canister itself before dumping inside and going through the filter. If it's the hose, you can turn the end clockwise to remove it from the body of the vacuum and use a broomstick to clear any clogs.

If it's not a clog or filter then you may try cleaning the seals (one round at the bottom of the canister where the canister mates to the body and a rectangular one in back of that where the dust runs up and into the canister.

Good Luck!

Eureka 12 amp vaccum lost all suction how do I fix this?


There must be a clog somewhere in the line. I don't know this model, but if it has a hose, disconnect it and see if the machine has suction. If yes, then you know hose is clogged. If you don't hace hose, then you can try to take apart the air intake to unclog it. It is also possible that the motor runs, but the impeller on the motor is loose and is not spinning to create the suction. I would try checking and cleaning any clog first. Good luck!

Eureka the Boss bagless


Sounds like you have a clog somewhere. Check the filter inside the dust compartment, if is very dirty it won't allow ait to flow thru, Part #62132, DCF-H filter. Check the hose, take it off if you can and drop something in it to see if it comes out the other end, if it doesn't, then the hose is clogged. Check bown by the brush roll, the inlet may be plugged. Also if the belt is more then say 6 months old, you may want to replace it, I am sure it is strertched, part #61120B, extended life belt.
