There are a couple ways (more, I'm sure). Disconnect the hose from the vacuum and invert over a waste receptacle while stretching it and straightening it simultaneously. By stretching and shaking it, you can dislodge all but the most stubborn clogs. If that fails, straighten a portion of wire clothes hanger and bend a small hook in the end. Using your new tool, fish out the clog in bits until clear. Use care so as not to puncture the hose with the hook. Farmerbear at FixYa.com

Nothing is going into the waste basket when i vacuume


Do you mean the "bag"? If so you have a clog. The first thing is to check is the on board tool hose. Remove the hose from the machine and check suction at the end of the hose. If you have no suction there the clog is between the end of the hose and the bag. Open the bag door and remove the bag. You will have to use a coat hanger wire, make a small turn at one and slowly put it though hose to unclog. If you have suction there, check the section of hose between there and the head of the vacuum with coat hanger wire. If nothing there, then remove the base plate and check the inlet for the dirt there. You should also check to make sure the belt still turns the brush roller, if not replace it.

My eureka vacuum won't suction and starts to smoke when I try to use it. It sounds like it is suctioning when I first turn it on, but after about 20 seconds it begins to smell like burning and does not...


The problem is that your belt is stretched and worn. This causes that burning smell and it also causes the vacuum to not pick up well. You need to replace the belt. Here is the belt you need and the manual with instructions:

My Eureka Lite speed whirlwind has a bad odor when it runs.


It is either the filter or on the roller or belt.

No dirt is getting to the plastic container.....


if the filters are clean I doubt it! Under the foot of the hoover there should be a little black cover/flap that covers the intake part of the hose, try lifting this flap forward and see if there is any blockage at this end.

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!
