I have a yellow Eureka Boss Smart Vac. The clear plastic hose on the right of the vac is full, does that mean it is clogged?

SOURCE: RENAISSANCE HOSE/VAC

THE RENAISSANCE IS KNOWN FOR HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THE CIRCUIT BOARD IN THE HANDLE.YOU'LL NOTICE THAT MODELS THAT CAME AFTER THAT HAD SLIDING SWITCHES. UNFORTUNATELY THE NEW HOSE DESIGN WON'T WORK ON YOUR MACHINE BECAUSE THE CIRCUIT BOARD INSIDE THE MACHINE WAS CHANGED TOO.AERUS MAY OR MAY NOT STILL MAKE THE PARTS YOU NEED. OTHER WISE LOOK ON E-BAY FOR A NEW HOSE.
ELECTROLUX FOOLISHLY REPLACED IT'S FLAGSHIP STEEL MACHINE WITH THIS DESIGN...A FEW YEARS LATER ALL THEY HAD WORTH SELLING WAS THEIR NAME, HENCE THE NEW NAME AERUS.

I work on many types of units. If you electric floor brush runs but you have no suction then there is possibly a problem with the relay board that allows you to turn on the suction from the hose handle. This is a low voltage (24 V) switching loop circuit that will cause the 120 V motor in the unit to run.

Inside the wall valve are two brass pins. NOTE: there are 120V valves installed on some systems known as a Super Valve. A shock hazared exists if you work on that type of valve. That being said. In the round portion of the valve you can use a garage hose that has a 360 deg. chrome ring to test the valve. The ring completes the circuit causing the unit to power up and suction at the end of the hose. If the suction is weak, there is a colg in the pipe. If you hear no airflow, the relay inside the unit did not energize or the motor is bad.

To test: go to the unit and turn the switch on the side to "manual" if the unit turns on the motor should be ok. DO NOT RUN THE UNIT without and open valve. In some brands dammage to your motor will occure.

If the unit did not run, look for a small button near the switch. This is a circuit breaker for the motor. If it is poped out and you hear a "click" when you press it in there is most likely motor problems and someone should be contacted for repair.

Hope this helps!!

SOURCE: Electrolux Central Vac Hose Clogged

John,

There are several handle types. The pump style has about 8 phillips screws that hold the handle together. Make sure it is not connected to the wall as some have 120V cords or direct connect pins to supply power to a motor driven brush.

The two halves will separate and if it has slip rings the tube will lift up out with the hose.

If this is a low voltage hose, there are three tabs at the base of the handle you press in and pry out the end piece. You will need to remove the switch contacts before the hose will pull out. Remove the phillips screw that holds the switch trim in place and lift out. This will allow the cover to be removed to lift the contacts off the slip rings and the hose will drop out.

Hope this helps!

Have you checked for a clog in the lines or in the hose? If there is no clog in the system anywhere, then your motor could be dying.

Where is the reset button the eureka the boss smart vac


There are many different models of Boss Smart vac so I can't say for sure without your model number but it most likely does not have a reset button. It may have a reset switch built into the motor.

Eureka Smart Vac The Boss no suction from either setting. I have taken it apart trying to see if it was clogged but it isn't. Checked the hose it is not sliced.


Remove the bag cover and feel for suction above the motor. If their is suction there then check the bag compartment is sealed. You can drop a coin down the hose to check for blockages all the way to where the bag attaches.

No suction on my eureka boss smart vac. The belt is fine and the roller moves. I just changed the bag but no dice. any insight?


I know this is an old question but this is a good vac and maybe I can help somebody else some day, wish I'd figured this out a couple months ago when this problem first started. :} Anywho, this is another option from an amateur; I don't know the right terms but here goes: Right below the yellow flow knob (Floor/Hose) are the tops of two hoses, one to floor beater, one leading to hose. There is a sort of black clip holding these in place. Open it up, it hinges toward the front of the vacuum. On the back of the vacuum to the right of the lower cord wrap is a gray screw-looking thing, with little pix of locks imprinted above - one locked, one unlocked. Turn the screw toward unlock. Take the top of the black tube that leads to the hose and maneuver it out of the hole it's in, and you may find your clog in the top there. I found just a handful of dog hair, leaves and sticks stuffed in that tube but it was dense enough to stop flow to the hose. Removing it fixed the problem completely.

I havc a boss smart vac and it does not **** well especially throught the hose. I have lost the handbook. have recently replaced the belt. still does not work right. help


Sounds like either there is a clog in the hose or the paper bag is not installed correctly.
If it as a bagless machine, clean all your filters thoroughly....let them dry completely before putting them back in.

Eureka the Boss Smart Vac. Hose has suction, but still isn't picking up. Weird.


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.
