Question about Eureka 5892AVZ Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

Debris in front of foam filter

Before I vacuum I always make sure the dust cup is empty and the filters are clean. When I finish, there is always a lot of dust and debris in front of the foam filter - you can actually see it through the clear plastic. Is there something wrong with my vacuum cleaner?

When that happened to me it was because the cup got full or was loose. I am now seeing the cup seal, located on the body above the cup, is not sealing and my filter is loaded. That might be a clue.

My Shark Navigator does not have any suction. The roller brush works. What should I do?


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

If the dust cup is too full, there is no space for the dirt to go when you are vacuuming. To fix this, remove the dust cup and empty the it.

If your vacuum is still not picking up dirt after emptying the dust cup, there may be something blocking the airway. There are two places where you can check for a blockage: the dust cup air duct and the intake opening behind the brush roll. To check for a blockage in the dust cup air duct stand the vacuum upright and remove the dust cup. Now you can disconnect the super stretch hose and check for clogs in the air duct behind the dust cup. If that is not the case, to check for a clog near the roller brush lay the vacuum down. Next check the opening behind the brush roll for clogs. If there is debris, clean the opening with scissors, carefully cutting away any debris.

Uncleaned filters may also the reason why your vacuum has lost suction. To clean the foam and felt filters, remove the dust cup and pull out the two filters that are on the top of the motor base. Rinse the filters with lukewarm water until the water is running clear. Let the filters dry fully before putting them back into the vacuum.

If your vacuum is still not picking up dirt, you may need to replace it.
Unfortunately, if none of the other solutions worked, your motor is going bad. Most of the time a new motor costs as much as the vacuum itself and it is not easy to replace the motor. It may be time for a new vacuum.

If both your foam filter and felt filter have not been cleaned in the past month, this may be why your vacuum has lost suction. To clean the foam and felt filters, remove the dust cup and pull out the two filters that are on the top of the motor base. Rinse the filters with lukewarm water until the water is running clear. Let the filters dry fully before putting them back into the vacuum. If your vacuum is still not picking up dirt, you may need to replace it.

If none of the other solutions worked, your motor may be bad. You would need to check with Shark about this.

My Eureka endeavor nls vacume cleaner will not suck at all. I have taken it apart to clean everything but still nothing what could be wrong with it


HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

Vacuum maintenance is a general procedure and requirement for all units to ensure suction. Your Eureka can be easily maintained and by doing so properly you will make sure your unit performs at it's peak performance. The following tips will help your vacuums suction.

After every use, make sure to empty your unit's dust cup. Allowing for fine dust and debris to rest in your unit's dust cup for a long period may cause your unit to become clogged.

It is recommended to wash and clean your unit's filter screen weekly. To do so, empty your filter screen outdoors to take off any excess debris and then clean under running water until the water comes out clean. Allow the filter screen to fully dry before inserting it back into the unit. This may take up to several hours.

Foam and cloth filters should also be washed and dried weekly, by following the same steps from cleaning the filter screen. Do not use any soap, dishwasher, dryer or washing machine to do so. Allow your filters to air dry for 24 hours before re-installing them in your Eureka.

Replace your HEPA filter and belts every 6 months. Last, make sure to clear your roller brush of any tangles hair strands or debris monthly and to replace at least every year.

My vacuum has lost the suck when I try to use the hose


Hey there! It sounds like you may possibly have a clog in your hose. Try removing the hose completely from the vacuum from both ends. Use a broom stick to loosen and remove any clogs from the hose. Your filters can also affect suction power so be sure to clean and replace any filters if needed. Hope this helps!

My vaccuum cleaner has lost its suction, how can i fix this?


Your vacuum most likely has a clog in the hose somewhere. It's a dirty job, but usually pretty easy to fix. They usually clog where there is a bend in the hose, such as near the brushes or near the body of the vacuum itself. It would be helpful to know what kind of vacuum you have. Sometimes the bag is full and debris starts to back up. That fix is very, very easy. Sometimes there is a clog in the hose because something was vacuumed up that should have been picked up instead. I (unplugging the vacuum first) generally take apart a wire coat hanger to snake my way through the hose. You may have to unscrew the brush area of your vacuum to access that end of the hose.

Upper Filter gets clogged quickly


You may have to replace the filters, air maybe restricted going thru them. The main filter is part #73494, and the foam #74038. Also make sure the SLINGER/CYCLONE ASSY part #74068 isn't clogged up.
