Could be a problem with the cord. There also is a circuit board by the motor that could be the problem. Did you drop something in the hose to see if it comes out the other end? Because you could have a clog. Or just unhook the hose and see if it runs that way.

Your belt is probably broken. Check your belt and make sure your brushroll has not seized. If both of those check out ok, (because the smartvac belt doesn't stretch,) the belt tensioner assembly may have gone bad.

SOURCE: Bosch Vacuum Cleaner: I changed

Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

It sounds like you may have a bad thermal switch inside the machine. Most vacuum cleaners have a switch connected to the motor, so if the vacuum cleaner is running hot, it will shut off to prevent any damage to your motor. You did all the right things by checking the bag, making sure the hose was NOT clogged, and replacing HEPA filter.

Most of the time on canister vacuums, the reason is caused by a clog in the hose, or somewhere in the powerhead. If you're sure that there is no clog anywhere, it is going to be the thermal switch on the motor.

Here's a link to the parts schematic for the Bosch upright vacuum. I hope it helps you in determining how to access the thermal switch. A word of warning to you before you try it, this is a very tough vacuum cleaner to work on, you may want to bring it in to a vacuum repair shop, as this is not an easy repair.

SOURCE: No suction from base or hose attachment

Hi,
I had the same problem with my Eureka vacuum cleaner. I don't have the problem with the beater bar, but I had the problem with the attachment hose not getting any suction. I found out that I was putting attachment on the wrong end of the hose. The end that you use in the front. Don't how I got that confused because it always worked before. Hope this helps with the hose part of the problem.

I have a Eureka upright bag less model 5857 az. The hose has suction but not for the carpet. Is there a switch that needs to be turned to floor suction? I do not have a manuel.


I'm just guessing here, but have you laid the vacuum down with the underside of its head showing? There is a channel that runs from the brush section to the hose when it's connected correctly to the head. Look for item(s) that may be jammed into that channel. Ensure that the hose is properly attached to the head. If you feel no suction on that underside channel, you have something jammed in it.

The brush roller could be worn and in need of replacement. Some Eureka uprights have a wire guide that prevents the belt from slipping off the motor shaft.

I have power on the rotating brush but no vacuum?


First check the filters. If the motor is running properly and the filters clean the most likely problem is a blockage in the tube from behind the brushes pet hair is good at blocking any vac, make sure the vac is disconnected from power then unscrew the assembly under the vac that holds the brushes the drive belt and the tube, once free you should straighten out an old wire coat hanger and prod it through to the inspection flap at the rear of the vac, if this is clear try the same procedure with something more substantial than a coat hanger on the detachable suction hose that you use for getting into corners. If there is no blockage I am sorry that is the limit of my experience.

What filters do i need for the eureka the boss bagless vacuum w/widetrack modal 4495


There is a Cassette Micron Filter 60696.If you have a HEPA cartridge filter you need EUREKA's HEPA part 61500.In earlier models there is a micron filter instead of a HEPA filter--for that you need EUREKA's Micron part 60801. But if you have that HEPA filter, the manual says you have to use the HEPA filter to achieve the closed HEPA filtration system again.

Stopped suddenly, won't start back


Your vacuum has an auto shut off when motor gets hot. It comes back on after 1 hour & is cooled down. While it is cooling down, you want to check the following; look for either a blockage in either the main hose, or lower hose, or just need to clean the dust cup foam & filter, & check the hepa filter on the side of the vacuum.

Cyclone action is not working


Hello,

When the Cyclone Assembly on the Dyson is not spinning around, it usually means that you are loosing suction somewhere. This can either be caused by a clog, suction leak, or dirty filters. I will give you detailed step by step instructions along with pictures on how you can diagnose this.


Possible Problem # 1. Turn the vacuum cleaner upside down so the brush roller is facing upwards. I found the easiest way to work on it is to put it on a counter top or work bench. On the left hand side behind the roller brush you should see a flexible transparent hose that goes from the motor to the agitator housing. This hose actually has a lot of strain on it when the vacuum cleaner is in the vacuuming position with the handle down. When the first few series of Dyson DC07 models came out, they didn't make this hose long enough, so when the handle was in the reclined position, it would put too much stress on the hose, and cause the hose to actually crack, usually right where the end of the hose that goes into the agitator housing. Examine your hose and see if you have any visible cracks in this hose. If you need to you may just remove the entire hose assembly by pulling on it. It will easily come right out of the machine so you can inspect it better. Here's a picture of where the hose usually cracks:

If you do find a crack in this hose, the this hose needs to be replaced. Here's a direct link to that hose on our GoVacuum website.

Possible Problem #3. Dyson's in general are prone to clogging. There are a few clog ports throughout the vacuum cleaner that were added there due to Dyson prototypes becoming clogged at these points. Here are pictures of how and where to check for these clogs. Simply remove the suction port covers at both of these locations:

Possible Problem # 4. The Dyson DC07 has two filters on the vacuum. The first filer is the pre-motor filter. This filter is located on the right side (if you're standing in front of the vacuum) underneath of the of the cyclone assembly. There is a filter catch that holds the filter and the filter bracket in place. Simply press the filter latch, and remove the plastic circular part that comes off. In side of this plastic part you'll find the pre-motor filter. This filter is washable, but if it hasn't been washed recently, this could be the source of your suction loss. Here's what a clean pre-motor filter looks like, compared to a dirty filter:

moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.png6fb4438.jpg

The second filter in your Dyson is the HEPA filter. The HEPA filter is also known as the post-motor filter, or it's located after the motor. This filter typically doesn't have any effect on the suction, but you should periodically open it up and take a look at it. Despite the bogus claim of a Lifetime HEPA Filter. As you can see in the picture below, this filter gets filthy. When this filter is this dirty, it prevents the air flowing through the filter, which causes the air to look for other ways to escape, causing the dirty air to escape unfiltered. A dirty filter can also take away from the life of the motor. Here's how you can access the HEPA filter.

First remove the dust bin completely from the vacuum cleaner. Take a flat head screw driver, and right where the dust bin was sitting you'll see a groove. Put the flat head screw driver, and pry this groove off. Here's a picture of that: de80f32.jpg

Also on both the left and the right side, there are two more grooves that need to loosened before the filter can be removed:

e3fcc61.jpg

After loosening three grooves, one on the front, left and right sides, the HEPA Filter cover can be removed. Inspect the filter to see if it's dirty. Here's a look at what a dirty filter looks like compared to a brand new filter:

I'm pretty sure that one of these solutions will help you with your loss of suction, and the cyclone assembly not spinning.
If one these solutions still didn't fix your problem, I'd be happy to try and help you further. Just use the Clarification Request, or comment section here on the Fixya repair page, and let me know specifically what happened after trying these solutions. We can then narrow down the possible problems, and help you get your vacuum fixed.

I really hope that this repair was helpful to you. If this repair did help you, please be sure to rate this repair as helpful by clicking the thumbs up icons in the top right hand corner of the repair. Thanks so much!

Sounds like it is over heating do to a dirty filter. Or there is something blocking the air flow in the vacuum.

Water leaking from out of the heppa filter


Reasons for that to happen:
a) You have tilted the vac while vacuuming
b) Used the Rainbow without separator (basket like thing on the bottom of the motor)
c) Overfilled the rainbow tank with water (may have happened when shampooing with AquaMate)

Clean and install back the separator, remove HEPA, Set the Rainbow on empty water pan (with HEPA removed) turn it on for a while so everything will dry. Install new HEPA.

You will have to get a new HEPA filter (you can find them HERE)

Good Luck,
Rocky

Generic problem for all Vacuums
Hi my vacuum (Russell Hobss 2200 Bagless HEPA)
Hi my vacuum (Russell Hobss 2200 Bagless HEPA) seems to have just enough (not loads) of suction till it reaches the cleaning head. The head does not appear to be blocked - but there is then almost no suction at all.
It also makes loads of noise when on- and an even louder noise when turning off.
is it fixable or is it dead?
Thanks


I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Well there seems to be maybe a few problems, the head may be clear, but the hoses could be clogged and or the HEPA filter could be clogged as well – if the hoses and wands are clear and the filter clean you may look @ a motor replacement depending on the cost or to buy a new vacuum and in some instances you can trade in your old vacuum for a new one – but check it fist from the suction head thru the hoses, wands and filters, B4 you decide to purchase a new one or to replace the old motor with a new one depending on cost. A rule to live by – the item cost more to repair that to replace – replace the item, if the repair cost (as an example) say $50.00 to $60.00 and to buy a new one would cost $100.00 – buy a new one.
