I know the belt number
Eureka Part Number: 61110B (Replaces 61110, 61110A)
And the roller i think: Genuine Eureka Brush roller part number 61250-3 for Eureka The Boss/Smart vac/smartvac ultra 4800 series vacuums including models 4870 and 4880
Hope this helps you.

My Eureka The boss Smartvac Model #4870 roller brush won't turn even on the highest setting and the belt smells hot. we took the belt off. How can you tell if it needs replaced?


Just by what you explained I can tell that it needs to be replaced. The belt doesn't have to be broken to need replacing, if it is stretched and worn then it will slip on the motor shaft and not turn the brush roll and get hot. Here is a link to the belts you need and the manual which has instructions:

Brush roller spins until it touches the carpet, then stops.


That means that the belt is stretched or worn. Here is a link to the replacement belts you need and a manual which has instructions:

I have just changed the belt but I continue to get a burning smell on my Eureka 4870 vacuum.


check if you have the correct belt for the machine, that model doesn't use normal belts.. If it isn't and R-belt then you have the wrong belt. It needs to be a that specific belt or it will not work

How do I change the belt?


Turn the vacuum over so the bottom is up.. Remove scews from plate surrounding the brush area..
Pop of the cover plate..
Lift out the side of the brush that the belt connects to..
Put new belt on..
Put the brush back in place.. It might be a bit tough because the new belt will have a bit of tention..
Put plate cover back on and screws..

Eureka 4870: Brush roller turns even in hose setting.


You either have the wrong size belt, most likely too small, or you have installed a new belt incorrectly. When you open the cover on the bottom of your vac, you will see the pulley that moves as you flip the switch from floors to carpet. The belt does not go around this pulley. When activated(carpet) the pulley puts tension on the belt causing it to turn the roller. When switched back to hard floors, the belt looses tension allowing motor to cause suction but disabling roller. Also, the dial on top of vac is only to direct suction, not for disabling roller

New Eureka vacuum cleaner belt keeps slipping off


You may have a bad brush roll, part #61250-1, or the base itself has a problem and isn't letting the brush roll sit straight so it can be in alignment.
