Question about Eureka Smartvac 4870 Bagged Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Vacuum roller stops at half tilt.

Recently our vacuum roller just stopped spinning when the handle is only raised half way. So in order to clean the rug, you have to be slumped over with the handle far down. Once you lift the handle more than half way up the roller stops spinning.

You need a new belt. Belts will stretch to the point that they won't turn the brush roll under load, they will just slip. Check the brush when you change the belt to make sure the ends turn easily, if not, then replace it also.

Dyson brush roller spins intermittently. it starts out good but then stops


Do you have a burning rubber smell at the same time? Turn the machine over and remove the bottom cover. Hook a loop of cord under the belt, pull it up wards and pull the brush out. Remove one end cap and pull the spindle out from the other end. Remove the fluff and hair that is tied around each end.
This shows quite well.

Put the brush back and see if that fixes it. If not, then you need to change the two belts, and possibly the clutch. The same guy at Vacuum spot shows clutch servicing, but you may wish to get a professional to do it. How to check the Dyson DC04 Roller Brush Bearings

Why the Dyson dc 41 roller brush will not turn?


Try these steps:
  • Check the button that turns off the roller brush to make sure you didn't press it by accident.
  • Unplug the vacuum and clear pet hair and other debris off the roller brush. It may stop as a safety feature if the roller brush is too restricted.
  • Make sure the belt to the roller brush is placed correctly and not broken.
  • Press the roller brush reset button. It may be located on the side of the vacuum's head, or inside the handle. The switch may need to be replaced if it's defective.
  • The roller brush is disabled while the handle is in the upright position, so tilt the handle backwards while testing the roller brush.
I hope that helps you!

Roller stops when the handle is lowered


Hi, it's Cindy from Crucial Vacuum.

Over usage, the bristles on rollers wear. The reason why the roller stops properly working when the handle is lowered is because as the handle is lowered the vacuum is raised from the floor. It may be time to change your roller. A quick search of part # 303202004 will bring several options for purchase.

While your changing your roller, you can also change your two filters and carbon filter. For optimal performance, it is recommended to change your filter every 3-6 months.

Vacuum wont spin when on carpet but will spin if tilted off the carpet


Remove the bottom plate of the sweeper. Remove the sweeper brush roller and clean the end bearings of debris. Oil the bearings lightly with 3-1 oil or similar machine oil. Clean the motor shaft with alcohol as well as the brush drive area, and the inside of the drive belt. Test on a carpet for improvement--if still stopping, replace the rubber drive belt. Hope this helps!

Burning smell loud grinding noise when tilted


Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. The rattle is the clutch engaging. It can happen for a couple of reasons. The best case for you is if there is something caught in the brush roller that you can simply remove. The next best is that the end caps of the brush are full of junk that you will be able to remove. Its not easy getting the brush out to clean there but it can be done.
If the brush spins in your hand easily when the brush is removed then it is the clutch itself. THe main roller often melts which is caused when the tension on the belt gets to high thus creating too much heat. THis can be resolved only with a new clutch.
Hope this helps, if you have more questions dont hesitate to reply or if you need parts just visit

Happy Vacuuming :)

Roller turns but makes noise


When you set the roller back in place, you probably didn't get it set in the slots properly. May be raised up slightly on one side.

Beater bar does not work dyson DC07


If the beater bar does not spin freely, and the belt still seems to be in place, then you may not need a new clutch, but you may need to reset the clutch.  This is done very simply by keeping the beater bar section of the vacuum flat on the floor and reclining the handle all the way to the floor so the entire vacuum lays flat. There is a mechanism in the vacuum which resets the clutch. You will probably not hear anything when the clutch resets.  I sat on the phone for an hour and a half to hear this simple technique is built into the vacuum, but excluded from all instructions and website customer service information.
