How do i install a filter on a eurika optima upright model 431? I was given a filter model hf-7 and was wondering how it would fit.


Hi nena,

The hf7 model is not made to fit the 431 series.

I believe I can find the filter and instructions for you if you give me the entire model number.
The 431 series include several models.

Do you have your instruction manual?

Handie Andie

If this helps, please place a vote or comment for me. Thanks

How do you replace Hoover Handle Release Pedal on


The handle pedal is snapped in to the base, where it pivots.
The pedal needs to be pried away fron the base, exposing the pivot pin to release it for removal. On your model, you will likelly have to remove the lower handle from the base (where it pivots) to get room to release and replace the pedal.

My Eureka Optima vacuum handle broke right at the metal tube.


I have exactly the same problem. I plan to drill a hole in the handle through plastic and metal, and then pass a metal pin to hold them together. I don't rotate the handle much, so the loss of handle spin functionality will not be a major issue for me.

Brushroll not spinning
Posted by vistaloopy on Mar 19, 2008
I have a Eureka Bagless Optima 431 Lightweight Upright that is not working. I took it apart to clean the brushroll and have tried to put it back together several times, but the brushroll will not spin anymore. Maybe I'm putting the belt in the wrong spot? Where can I find a diagram or something?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Eureka 431A Optima Bagless Upright Vacuum. You have only 2 choices, the belt is either side driven belt or the belt is a center driven belt and the brushroll has one side that is for the belt and the side driven brushroll and the motor pulley must be in line in order to work properly, you may want to check the bearing holders, some vacs will mark the ends with words like NEW or USED and both have to be identical in order to fit right. Once you have the brushroll out it should spin if you set it on it’s side and if that happens you are OK, then watch the ends of the brushroll. Align the end with the motor pulley, B4 install the belt place the belt on the pulley side and install the brushroll. Then once the brushroll is in and spins properly, and then you can use a belt puller and stretch the belt onto the motor pulley and then track it in a straight line. If you need further help please feel free to contact your local vac 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.
