After the Eureka 4467 runs for a few minutes a power surge occurs. The vacuum motor slows down and any lights in the house are dimmed.
Is there a fuse or something that I can change?
The suction seems okay, and nothing is clogged.
Thanks for any info

The Motor has locked up due to over heating. Once that happens the only way to go is either replace the motor drive or get a new cleaner. Do not try and keep energizing the Vacuum as you could blow circuit-breakers or start an electrical fire.
make sure all your filters are clean,try to turn the brush roller by hand a few times if it turns real freely then the belt is broke.if it is reall hard to turn then you have something wrapped around the ends of the roller where the bearings are.your motor guard might be keeping it from running because it got too hot take the brush roller out and the belt let it cool down for 20 minutes then try it without the roller and belt.you should be able to take the ends of the roller off by just pulling out on them so you can remove what ever is in there
I would contact eureka for warranty repair. sounds like it there is something wrong with the mechanis of the unit. could be that water is making its way into the motor pump housing and causing damage to the pump
The windings have a temperature sensor that "usually" resets when it detects an over heating problem. The other alternative is a light bulb in series with the motor that has popped, this will stop the motor from running.
I'd bet on the thermostat in series with the windings first though, can be replaced if you can get the cleaner apart.
