SOURCE: looking for Eureka belt 70646A for a Eureka The Boss upright

It should be a standard Eureka U belt. That number you have is not a good number. Most repair shops should have this one. The R belt is a real thin and different material.

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!

SOURCE: Eureka Altima Vacuum Cleaner w/Power Paw

The way I resolved the problem was to remove the cover at the end of the power paw. Then remove the so side black covers for the shaft. Remove any debris and hair and then put back together. This solved my problem.

I'm looking for CV1801 Vacuum Motor, Greator Toronto... Thanks


Hello There,

I've looked up your model vacuum cleaner, and it seems that I am able to still get this motor for your Eureka central vacuum cleaner. We're located in the United States, but we can certainly ship this to you.

Here's a picture of the diagram for you;

vacuumrepair_1.jpg
We sell the genuine Eureka motor for $199.00, however you may save substantially on this motor by purchasing it under the Lamb Electric name. The motors are identical, and Lamb actually makes this motor for Electrolux, and sells the replacement parts for MUCH less money they Electrolux. We sell the motor under the Lamb name for $119. I went ahead and added this part to our site so you could place your order if you wanted to. I don't have it in stock today, but my parts distributor is showing 3 in stock, so we can easily have your order shipped out within 2-4 business days.

Here's the link to the Eureka CV1801 Central Vacuum Cleaner motor, Part number 54586;
http://www.govacuum.com/10661-Eureka-Central-Vacuum-Cleaner-Suction-Motor-Assembly-Part-54586-.aspx

Hopefully this was helpful to you. I've also left you a link below to the parts diagram of your vacuum cleaner, in case you need some visual help to see how it comes apart. If you found this repair to be helpful, please be so kind and rate the repair helpful, or leave feedback for me. I really do appreciate it, and this also helps people with the same question find the answers easier. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at chris (dot) jones (at) govacuum (dot) com.

My Model 2961 Eureka wont take power now?


Hi,

Anytime that you smell that electrical burning smell on a vacuum cleaner, this is the motor going bad. There are two distinctive burning smells in fixing vacuum cleaners, the electrical burning smell which is the motor, and a rubber burning smell which is the belt.

The bagless vacuums cleaners in general, their motors last usually no more then 3-5 years. The motor in bagless vacuums work much harder then the motors in their bagged counterparts.

The motors in Eureka vacuums can range in price from $70-$120. If you can provide me with the exact model number on your vacuum cleaner (can be found on the bottom or the back of the machine on the sticker that also contains the serial number) I will be able to get you the part number, and price of the motor that's used in your vacuum.

It may be worth considering to just get a new vacuum cleaner at this point. If you'd like me to give you a personalized recommendation specifically for your unique cleaning needs, I'd be honored to do so. Please just let me know what types of floors you have mostly in the home and I'll be happy to share my knowledge of vacuum cleaners.

I hope this was helpful to you. If you found this helpful, please be sure to rate the repair helpful so other Fixya users that have this same problem can easily find the answer.

Thanks so much,

Where can I get a fiter for my GE Combination Bagless Vac model 106687


Greetings,

Your GE is actually made by Eureka for Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart owns the GE brand for vacuum cleaners, and they have different manufacturers (most always Eureka) make vacuum cleaners specifically for Wal-Mart, but in actuality it's really a Eureka vacuum cleaner in terms of the parts (most of the time, in this case for sure).

Your GE model 106687 uses Eureka Dust Cup Filter Part Number 61518. Here's a link to Amazon for the filter;
http://www.amazon.com/Eureka-Model-106687-Filter-61518/dp/B001DPLYAG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&m=A13YM4FUDXTJG6&s=generic&qid=1269298852&sr=1-1

The parts Diagram for your vacuum cleaner can be found here;
http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/vacuumcleanerbacgs/GE106687.pdf

This will give you all of the Eureka part numbers for your GE Stick Vac. I hope that this was helpful to you. If you found this helpful, please be sure to rate the answer as helpful by clicking the 4 thumbs up icons in the top right hand corner.

If you need any other parts, please feel free to contact us.

Thank you very much,

I am looking for the filter for the Eureka bagless Altima vaccum cleaner


There should be an toll free # to call for eureka and they can direct you to the nearest authorized eureka service center in you area. If its a new model places like wallmart wont stock it. There are so many vacuum makes and models its impossible for any one business to stock every single bag, belt, filter etc. for them all. But a decent vacuum repair shop should be able to get it for you.

Eureka vacuum cleaner


That means that the belt2_bing.gif is starting to wear. When the belt starts to stretch it can't turn the roller brush against the resistance of the carpet and therefore doesn't pick up well. You simply need to change the belt. Here is a link to the belt you need and to the manual:
