Just slide the dark gray release tab, located just below the cup, all the way to open position, and then pull the Easy Empty Cup toward you.

Can not get the dirt cup off of my eureka altima 2993


I have a similar model but I believe the solution would be the same. My dirt cup wasn't coming out after turning the lever so I wedged a butter knife between the clear dirt cup and the grey plate under it and pried the two apart. With the knife pushed in between the two pieces came apart easily. Now the cup slides out with no problem. _395.jpg

The belt is probably worn, stretched or broken that is why it is not picking up. Here is a link to the owners manual which has instructions and a link to the belt you need.

CAN NOT REMOVE THE CUP THAT HOLDS THE DIRT


Remove the separate "flange" component at the top of the dirt cup FIRST. Of course this is after you've moved the lever to "open". The cup should slide out easily--don't force it!
Good Luck!

Same problem removing the easy empty cup..


The dark gray plastic slide is separate from the Easy Empty Cup. Just slide the release tab all the way to open position, and then pull the Easy Empty Cup straight up. With a little effort, the cup will dislodge from the dark gray plastic platter.

How do I to change the belt on an eureka altima 12?


the belt is on the bottom right (looking at it from the front). the Eureka website does have the manual for download, http://www.eureka.com/service/manuals/80244.pdf

With the vacuum flattened (straightened) out, turn it over and remove the back roller cover, (2 screws) once off, the roller should just pop out on the opposite side (opposite from the belt). Don't forget to turn the roller to center the belt once you have it on.

My eureka 2961avz bagless vacuum has no suction


Usually clogs are in the dirt inlet by the brush roll, or in the hose. Take the hose off from the bottom and see if there is suction, if not, then the hose is clogged. If suction there, then it is lower. Also is the brush roll turning, if not, that could be your problem.

Eureka altima bagless


I experienced the same problem of being unable to remove the dust cup. Inspection of the dust cup appeared to indicated two tabs on the bottom of the dust cup preventing it from sliding straight out as illustrated in the instructions. However, after much fiddling, I assumed that the dust cup with the tabs was probably a slightly different part than actually intended for that particular model (2996avr) and so decided to force the cup out, reasoning that if the tabs broke in the process, that was necessary for removal of the cup anyway, and therefore not detrimental.

HOWEVER, upon forcing the cup out, the cup broke away from a plate upon which it is designed to sit. The cup had apparently become stuck to the plate after much use without sufficient care and cleaning. The plate is what the tabs are attached to, and so by breaking the cup free of the plate, the tabs were not an issue, and the cup easily slid in and out of the housing, as intended. It was also observed, upon removal of the cup, that there is a very slight lip on the front of the plate to secure the cup in the proper position; this would likely act as an additional hinderance if the cup was also stuck to the plate by old cemented grime.

You didn't mention brand or model #, but try going to the manufactures web site and see if they offer manual downloads.
