Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Some of the Eureka brushrolls have a sensor in the brushroll that indicates that the brush is moving and the sensor and the light are linked together – you may have a bad brushroll – to check that you need to remove the brushroll, stand it on end and spin it freely, if it does not spin the bearings could be bad or needs to be replaced with a new brushroll and a new belt. The belt change is every 4 to 6 months for the best cleaning. . If you need further help please refer to a local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area. 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.

Roller brush spins


The roller brush will turn as long as the sweeper motor is running no matter what brand you have. Turn it off as you return it to the upright position.

Eureka burning smell


Hi, it's Cindy from Crucial Vacuum.

Since you have replaced your Eureka 4870MZ 9200 Proheat 2x vacuum's belt, the issue may either be caused by your roller or the position of your belt. It sounds like as soon as your vacuum is lowered, the belt is either slipping or wear on the end caps is causing your roller to stop. This will cause the burning smell since your motor is now straining against the abrupt stop. Try taking off your roller and checking the conditions of the end cap or try to reinstall your belt. I have included an instructional video: http://youtu.be/rji0fl9hytY

On our eureka world vac 9834 we cannot figure out how to remove the roller so we can put a new belt on


On this particular model the TOP cover is removed. There are 2 phillip screws near the roller and 2 tabs near the back wheels (push in with a flat screwdriver while pulling apart). Pull the hose through cover for easy cleaning. Everything I watched or read were for other models, where the bottom cover was removed :-(

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:

Motor smells like it's burning. Upright Powerline Model 5847. Have kept filters clean and cut entangled hair from the rollers. Have had vacuum for about 5 or 6 years.


The burning may be coming from the roller drive belt if the roller is jammed due to debris build up or has seized roller end bearings. Remove the roller and belt and examine both for damage. The roller, without the belt, should spin freely by hand. Replace the belt if it has a burned spot as it will fail shortly. Hope this helps.

This the 2nd roller i put on here and it keeps


Keep the brush free of hair and thread, check your housing for excess wear and only use a genuine belt. As these uprights have gotten cheaper the reliability and durability has gone out the window. If within warranty consult a warranty center.
Sorry to say most bagless uprights are becoming disposable ,not highly serviceable....Retailers make huge money on expensive filters and in 3-5 years the vacs are in the landfill with unused filters still in your closet

I have a eureka the boss smart vac petlover vacuum and I cannot find the book on how to replace the belt. I have opened it up, but there is a silver roller that is confusing me.


Either go directly to the Eureka internet site, or GOOGLE "eureka boss smart pet lover manual". Several options should be displayed to download the needed manual.

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
