Question about Eureka Mighty Mite 3670 Bagged Canister Vacuum

2 Answers

Won't work My Eureka Mighty Mite 3670 Bagged, was working fine, and we unplugged it to switch to another outlet in another room and it just stopped. We tried several other outlets and it just won't turn on. We thought maybe it got hot because we had been using it for a while and we let it rest for a while and then changed the bag just to be sure, although it was not full. But it still will not turn on. Any ideas?

    I had the same problem today. Have a 9 amp model I bought 10 years ago which I never use. Has been sitting for years. Today put in new bag and ran it continuously for 45 minutes. After I turned it of it wouldn't restart. Tried another outlet and wouldn't restart. Felt canister at back and motor housing was hot so I thought I might need to let it cool down. After letting vacuum cool off for 10 minutes it restarted. All I can assume is that the vacuum has a built in overheat sensor on the motor.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Eureka Mighty Mite #3670 Bagged Canister. I have the same type Mighty Mite Canister and from what you are saying the must be some type of heat sensor that is shutting off the motor to protect it from excessive heat. Al of the old ones have had lower amps and did not needs the heat sensor but once the bag is full and the filter clogged; they will shut down as well. They all use a plastic hose to clean with and that even gets hot sometimes. So I suggest that you get an owner’s manual from the manufacturer on you particular model so that id if happens again, you will be prepared. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Our's did the same thing. I cleaned the clogged motor filter, took out the clogged hepa filter and replaced the bag. In my case the plugin arc'd and I also had to replace the plug for safety. All is well now.

Hello,
It sounds like your vacuum is fine if it works when plugged in the kitchen outlet. It is tripping the breaker switch in the other room because the circuit is overloaded (too many things plugged in this circuit). Try unplugging some things in that room and try your vacuum again.
If it only trips when using one particular outlet, then the outlet should be replaced. I would recommend having an electrician check your wiring out.

Hope this helps

Brush stopped rotating and little suction on unit.


Even though the brush is spinning, you probably need to replace the belt2_bing.gif because it is stretched. It is probably slipping on the beater bar..

How do I change the belt on a Eureka Mighty Mite II.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Normally the Mighty Mite II does not have a belt unless you have the model with the turbo head and then I believe it is a geared belt and then you can pup the belt from your local vacuum cleaner dealer or the Eureka factory parts dept. there are 2 to 4 screws on the bottom of the turbo head and then I believe the top will come up and then you can get to the belt. The average belt change is every year if it is a geared belt for the best cleaning or if you have a flat belt it is every 4 to 6 months. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
