Take either the plate over the brush roll off, if it doesn't come off, then the top cover comes off, should be 2 or 3 screws on the top to remove. Then you can get to the belt and brush roll. Check the brush roll, make sure the ends turn freely, if not replace it. The belt is either broke or stretched to the point that it won't turn the roll, replace it.

What is the cause of the loud noise in my vaccum it's a eureka boss bagless


If it's a rattling type noise, its possibly something in the fan assembly, including a broken off piece of the fan.
It could also be something loose near the roller brush, including a piece of the belt.

Eureka boss power plus


I had this same problem. The brush roll wouldn't spin, smoke came out, and it smelled like burning rubber. I changed the belt thinking that would fix the problem but it didn't, so I took the belt back off and checked the motor shaft in the back and found a whole bunch of hair wrapped around the shaft. Once I cut out the hair with some scissors and replaced the belt, everything worked like normal. I hope this helps.

THE BOSS SUPERLITE THE BRUSHES WON'T TURN


Check two things with this model: if the top slider button has been activated it will turn the brush roll on. If not then you'll have to remove the sole plate and check the sides of the beater bar - sometimes this will get jammed and refuse to turn because clogging of dust or tangled hair/carpet thread takes up the thread wheels at the sides. Sadly this model has a permanent toothed drive belt that can't really be replaced by the owner. However check the slider control on the top of the main body / handle first before doing anything - as you know it has a two option slider - switching on without the brush roll function and switching on with the brush roll activated.

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.

Vacuum doesn't go into carpet mode


If the model number is 5892AVZ, either the brush roll is bad or the brush roll motor isn't coming on to drive the brush roll. There is a circuit breaker, make sure it didn't trip, reset it if it has.

Belt


Turn vac over, take out 4 to 5 screws and the top cover will come off. The belt is a cogged belt #72393 and goes between the brush roll motor and the brush roll.

Eureka 5849A Boss bagless upright


remove belt to brush roll and see if noise persists. if it stops, you probably need a brush roll. at least doing this will narrow down the fault area
