Question about Eureka Atlantis 2595A Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum

1 Answer

Eureka Atlantis Stopped Working

I have used my machine only a few times. I've not been happy with the amount of water it puts out, but overall I like the machine.

However, today it just seemed to stop running. I was cleaning my carpet and it was working well when I noticed it sounded as if it was slowing down and losing power. I turned it off and it smelled the way it does when a vacuum belt breaks. It wasn't a strong odor though. Anyway, the heat light comes on and when I lower the handle position the brushes move so I believe the motor is fine. Although you would not know it's on without lowering the handle. I'm wondering what happened! I was on a roll. Thanks for any help!

    Same here, winded down, smelled like a burnt belt and stopped. I think it is likely Not Economically Repairable This Time Sorry (NERTTS).

The dirty water tank will not fill up


Make sure it's putting the right amount of water down. Many machines brought in to my store for repairs are putting down just a small amount but people think its not extracting any when the real problem is not putting out enough water.
If that's not the case make sure there are no clogs or suction leaks anywhere which will greatly reduce water extraction.

I have a DC 44 animal I have taken the filter out and cleaned and dryer it and when I put it back in my machine just keeps surging


Hi there,

You absolutely right to wash the filter and this is recommended approximately once a month on a smaller machine such a cordless.

The surging or pulsating noise is caused by a restriction in airflow which is usually an indication of a blockage. If this is happening since the filter was washed then the immediate thought would be whether or not it was dried sufficiently before being replaced and whether or not detergents were used. Detergents of any kind are a 'no' when washing our filters, which need to be done in cold water only.

Overall though, if the machine is pulsating we would recommend having a look at the following video (please note the model in the video is different but the principal remains the same).

I hope this helps but If you continue to have difficulty, please give the Dyson Helpline a call on 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA), 0800 298 0298 (UK). Our experts will be happy to talk you through some further diagnostic checks when you have your machine easily to hand.

Loss of suction


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.
I'm sorry to hear you've had difficulty with your DC44 Animal. It's normal for air to blow out of the back of the machine - this is where the exhaust air is returned to the room after passing through the cyclone pack.
However, if your machine doesn't seem to be picking up as well as usual and you've recently washed the filter, this may be due to a blockage. To check the motorised carbon fibre floor tool, wand and bin inlet for any obstructions, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide:
http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc44/dc44-animal/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-picking-up-as-well-as-usual-dc44/no-resolved-redirect-to-check-the-wand/check-wand
The motorised carbon fibre floor tool is driven by it's own motor, rather than the machine's airflow. If it isn't rotating, the video attached should help you locate anything which could be jamming the brush bar. Make sure you remove any threads or hair from around the brush bar carefully using scissors, taking care to avoid causing any damage to the bristles.
I'm confident this will resolve the issue, but if you would like some further help you can reach the Dyson customer Helpline directly by calling us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).
Best wishes,
Jack - Dyson Online Customer Support

You already said it, so check the carbon brushes. Once it is no longer able to push the rotor or stator it need to be replace. Carbon brushes are customized at the machine shop, so you should bring it so that you have a sample of the brushes itself. Just be observant when disassembling the motor so that you put it back to exact place.
Thanks for asking.

It sounds like the belt is too worn and loose to stay on. Buy a new belt specified for that model of vacuum and install. Ensure that there is only a slight amount of give in the belt when you press the middle.

No suction or spray - Eureka Atlantis Steam Cleaner


I got the machine working. I think because it hadn't been used for awhile that the seals were dried out. I wet them and let it sit for awhile and then I could push the containers all the way in and seated them properly. Then it started working no problem and I got to clean my carpets.

The suction on my eureka optima stopped working but the roller still works, what might i do to fix it?


Hi there. Most suction problems are due to a blockage. Start with the base and look carefully for debris that is stopping air flow. You may have to remove the base plate to get to the problem. I am including a link to the manual for your machine. look on page four so see how to remove the base and check for blocked airways. http://www.eureka.com/service/manuals/75287_eng.pdf
