Question about Eureka 431A Optima Bagless Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Eureka Wide Track Superlite vacuum roller brush motor

The vacuum is Model #409. The roller brush motor died. Is it possible to splice a new motor to the existing wires? Do you know where can I buy a new motor? How much? I've looked all over "Eureka land" and can't find one. The numbers on the dead motor are: DA-20L-2001 17.5V DC Aom 4293S.
Thanks!

Don't know if you can find something that will work, Eureka doesn't make these motors available thru them. Try some local shops or a place that sells small motors.

Trying to change the belt


things you will need Vacuum belt
  • Screwdriver
  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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

My vacuum caught on fire when I tried replacing the belt and when I tried to unclog it. Is this common for other people, or am I just very lucky?


Today sadly to say it is common for most vacuums. The quality is so poor that the roller brushes don't last long and can burn up belts as fast as you can replace them. Next time you want to buy a vacuum, turn it up side down and see what the roller brush is made of. If is is steel then buy it, if it is wooden or plastic forget it.

Roller brush will not turn on Eureka "The Boss Power Plus" 12 amp


Depending on the model there will be a couple of screws on the top plastic cover. The cover lifts off and the belt is then serviceable. On some models you will need to remove some parts on the bottom too to get the roller out.
In any case just look for screws that hold the covers on and explore a bit. You can't break anything.

Eureka doesn't make these motors available. Best to just replace the stick vac with a new one.

I changed the belt on a Eureka Whirlwind superlite, all was well but I can't seem to find where this white piece of plastic approx.2" and less than 1/2" wide and there is a copper like V shaped clip, I was hoping maybe you had a diagram or something showing where these go.
Much Appreciated

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
I would suggest contacting your local vac dealer in your area to she id they have a schematic of the Eureka Whirlwind Superlite vacuum, and include the model number so that it would be easier to find the vacuum you are speaking of or you also can check on line, some factory manufacturer have some type of schematics that you can download using the name and model # of the vacuum, but this is not a guarantee, 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.

The top comes off to get to the belt and brush roll. Did you check the brush roll to make sure that the ends turn freely, or is one not turning, the belt is a lon life "U" part #61120A. The brush roll is what drives the vacuum, but if brush roll or belt is bad, then it won't drive it.
