Question about Eureka 1934 Bagged Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Changing fan I changed the broken fan in my eureka 1934A. Put the cover back on and reattached the belt and when I went to start it, it wouldn't work. I took the cover back off to see what was going on and it looked like the motor was running in reverse of what it had been. Is this possible?

My solution is one that only works if the vacuum is a spare... To get mad at it and throw it in the garbage...

My thought though on what the problem actually was... Seeing as where the vacuum came from and what the problem was, that it was run with the fan broken causing more damage to the motor and therefore making it impossible to fix with just a fan. I would suggest that if your vacuum sounds different than it has before, stop running it and see if there's something you can do to fix it and if not then don't keep running it. Coins are the main problem with a broken fan and are not made to be sucked up by a vacuum cleaner.

How do you change the belt


The model that you have unscrews from the top. Unscrew the cover of the base to gain access to the belt and brushroll. Remove your brushroll and the broken belt. That vacuum takes a Eureka EXT-U belt. Use your brushroll to stretch the new belt into place. Let the brushroll click back into place and secure the cover back onto the base.

How do i change the belt on the eureka 4703D


Changing the belt is quite easy on this unit.

First, you will need a phillips screwdriver looks like the X. there should be 2 screws on the top cover, and then MAYBE one more there by the hose where it attaches to the base at the back. The top cover comes off and you have full access to the belt underneath.

Also, side note, once you have the cover off there you should see a black and yellow sticker near where the belt rides, and it will go into more details to changing the belt.

Not sucing


The reason it is not picking up is probably because the belt is stretched, worn or broken and is not turning the brush the way it should and therefore not picking anything up. You should change the belt on your model at least once a year. Here is a link to the belt you need and a link to the owners manual which has belt changing instructions:

I have a Eureka Bravo! 7.0 vaccum cleaner, how do I change the belt


Turn the vac over so the brush is facing up.. There is a cover plate that surrounds the brush.. Take the screws out and remove the cover plate.. Pull up on the side of the brush that the belt is on.. Replace the belt.. The belt goes around the metal shaft and the brush.. Push the brush back in place.. It might be a bit tough going in because the belt causes some tension.. Put the cover plate and screws back in..

Good luck ! Please don’t forget to rate well ;o)

How to put on a belt on eureka uno bagless vacuum cleaner


Unplug the vacuum.

Turn it over so you have access to the bottom of the unit (you should see the brushroll)

At the base where the "head" attaches to the body there is a small silver button that you must depress to remove it from the body. Press the button in with a screwdriver or unsharpened pencil while pulling the "head" away from the body.

Use a #2 Philips screwdriver to remove all the large screws from the bottom. They are all the same size and type so you can collect them for safekeeping without worrying about which one goes where. There are 2 smaller screws (if I remember correctly) that are for the upright lock that you do not need to remove. They will be on the small plastic piece near where the bottom brush "head" attaches to the vacuum.

Remove the clear plastic clog cover.

Gently pry the gray cover off. This shouldn't be too difficult as the cover goes loose when you remove the screws.

Flip the gray side over and you should see the innards including the brushroll, the motor, wiring, etc. Facing the assembly like you were looking head-on at the vacuum the belt should be on the right.

Pull up the far end (non-belted end) of the brushroll and then the belted end.

The brushroll should now be free and you should check the teeth on the belted end of the brushroll to ensure none are broken.

Remove the old belt from the motor (also toothed) and replace with new belt (a second spare would be handy to keep around and this is a good opportunity to clean up the air path).

Put toothed end of belt into the belt loop and stretch it a bit to get the toothed end back into place. The belt should auto adjust but just in case you may want to manually rotate the brushroll a few times after replacing the far end (non-toothed end)

Repeat the rest of it in reverse order to put it back.

Good luck!

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
There are 2 different models of the boss by Eureka – there is a standard old style upright that the belt that the belt would unscrew from the bottom of the motor and you would have to remove the top of the vacuum cover to remove the main motor and gasket assm, and then the fan has a reverse thread on the plastic fan and you would unscrew the fan after removing the belt pulley. Then you would screw on the new fan, belt pulley, replace the gasket and re-install the motor. If you have a new style with a side mount motor you would remove the top cover, the motor would be in there sideways, un-screw the motor, remove the silver tape around the fan housing and un-screw the fan housing – same as above un-screw the fan from the motor, there is a nut on the end of the fan holding that on – (remember, the fan has a reverse thread) re-install the fan. Then the fan housing, replace the silver tape, and then screw down the motor and replace the top cover, then you can test. As always free to contact your local vacuum dealer in your area in the yellow pages or contact your Eureka factory manufacturer listed below:

Eureka High filtration Commercial vacuum fan


One of 2 ways, remove the plate on the bottom, the is a clear cover covering the fan. Just unbolt the belt pulley and remove the fan. If there is no cover covering the fan, then you will have to remove the top, take out the 4 screw holding the motor and turn motor over, then you can remove the fan.
