You either have something worn out or the motor inside is going bad. Sounds like the motor in the power head is going bad. Disconnect the the wand from the power head and flip over the head take the plate off. then take the plastic cover off uou should get to the motor then. look at all the parts. I would think you need to replace the brush roll, belt and motor. But this is just a guess

B&s engine on mower turned upside down, won't start now.


Take the spark plug out, turn ignition key or pull rope until the engine turns over several times. Let it sit for about 5 or 10 minutes and repeat. Replace the spark plug with a new one. Make sure that your crankcase is not over filled or under filled with oil, and make sure that there is plenty of gasoline in the tank. Make sure that gasoline cap and oil cap are on "securely". Now try to re-start. (The engine may smoke for a while, but it should clear up in a few minutes).

I was using my steam vac and it blew out smoke and quick sucking anything up. i have taken everything I can find off and can't figure out what the problem is. I have the F5915900.


Hi well usually any "Smoke" that comes from a device such as this, it is from the Motor, i suspect that the motor has burnt out? That is usualy what it is when they are bought to my shop anyway?

You will need to take this unit to a repair center and ask for a "Quote", it maybe that this device is an uneconomic repair?

Smoke coming out!


This sounds electrical. If you have had this one year or less then it should be under warranty. find your local Hoover warranty dealer at the Hoover website hoover.com

Eureka Altima is smoking!
Posted by saysay on May 18, 2008
Help! My vacuum is smoking. It won’t work anymore and starts to smoke as soon as it gets turned on.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.

Eureka Altima Upright Vacuum Model #2996AVS – it is probably doing 2 things, it could be the belt and or brushroll and the easiest ay to check is to remove the belt and see if the motor smokes, if the motor is fine then buy a new belt and check the brushroll to see if the brushroll spins freely, there are bearings in the brushroll and thread and hair get bound up in the ends and needs to be cleaned out. So #1, check the belt – no smoke from the motor then check the brushroll to see if it spins freely then changed the belt. If the motor smokes check your purchase date it may still be under the one year factory warranty from the dop. #2. Either clean or replace the brushroll and belt. If you have any further questions, feel free to contact your local vac dealer. 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.

Central vac toast?


Most of these motors, the fan cover is just pressed on, but getting off isn't easy and you don't want to bent it up. Maybe using a flatblade try to knock it off from the edge of it may loosen it enough to pull it off.
