Question about Eureka 2961AVZ Bagless Upright Vacuum
Okay I hope this clarifies things. I plugged in my vacuum cleaner and tried to turn on the unit. However, the on/off switch connector did not connect. I tried to remove the front face cover near the switch, but there the screws are unusual. I was wondering if you knew what type of screwdriver must be used to remove the cover in order to replace the on/off connector. I hope that explains a little better. Thanks.
The screws are Torx head screws. If you don't have most places that sell tools should have them.

Tips for a great answer:
If something becomes lodged in the foot and the
brush shuts off, turn the cleaner off and unplug
from the outlet. Remove the obstruction. The
brush will automatically reset when the cleaner
is plugged in and turned back on.
Additionally, you could have dirty filters that are activating a thermal protector switch that shuts the vacuum off if the motor becomes too hot. If this is the case unplug the vacuum, clean any filters, clogs, or obstructions and wait 30 minutes for the unit to cool. Then plug the unit in and it should work. I hope this helps.

Locate and purchase the correct belt for your Eureka vacuum cleaner from the local grocery or department store. Vacuum belts come in different sizes according to your model of vacuum. Check your owner's manual or the vacuum itself for your model number.
Turn your vacuum cleaner over so that the bottom of the unit is facing you. Remove the cover plate from the bottom by undoing the screws that are holding it in place with a screwdriver.
Locate the belt pulley rod near the back of the vacuum base coming out of the motor. With the vacuum cleaner base turned upside down and facing you, the motor and pulley rod should be up near the top of the base.
Slide the vacuum brush roller out of the slots at the bottom of the vacuum base and remove the old belt from the brush roller and pulley rod. With the brush roller off of the unit, clean the brush by removing any strings or cords wrapped around the tube.
Install the new belt by looping it over the belt pulley rod next to the motor and then looping around the end of the brush roller in the belt slot. Hold the brush roller and pull back on it to tighten the belt while you slide the roller back into the slots on the vacuum base.
Replace the base cover plate by snapping it back into place and securing it with screws. Turn vacuum back upright and turn it on to test the belt and verify the unit is working
