First undo the hose from the base and then take the cover off from under the vacuum, remove the brush roller and belt, then note where the suction hole is and shine a light through the hole and look in the other side, if there isn't any light, then place an object through the hose side of the hole, if there is light, then follow the hose to the holding container, remove the hose from that, then turn it on if no suction from this point, then remove the container and turn it on, you should have some suction coming from the vacuum motor. If so, clean the filter(or replace) dump contents, and reassymble.

Its not easy to get into the sweeper head. I would push a air hose in there and blow the head clean. You will need to find a compressor or your friendly local workshop manager could help you.

I like using a Wire Clothes hanger to work the stuff out with. If you fashion a fish hook of sorts out of the wire, you can catch things inside the brush head and pull them out.

    Another thing is to remove the brush head from the main pipe before working with it. This limits the distance to only about 6 to 8 inches.

Your sweeper may have overheated. I don't know what brand you have but I hope you weren't trying to vacuum pine needles from the Christmas tree. Pine needles are sticky and will clog up any vacuum sweeper. Check your sweeper to make sure the tubes (hose & pipes that carry dirt) are clean and clear. I used to service Oreck vacuum sweepers.

I have a Eureka The Boss Power sweeper but can't find my Owners Manual. It seems to have lost some vacuum power. It doesn't pick up cleanly, leaves a streek of residue behind and seems to be blowing air...


Blowing air out of the right side? As in blowing air out of the right side of the hood? If its a light stream of warm coming out of the vent in the hood that's normal, its exhaust air from the motor. Now, clogs can occur at the outlet from the fan chamber. Remove the bag from the base of the machine via two screws. See if that area is clear and the tube going up into the bag unit is clear as well. Now, if the fan chamber is clear, inspect the fan for breaks or missing blades.

Clogged sweeper filters changed and hose cleaned, but no dirt collecting in the bag. I am no sure what do do next


You have a rubber flap in the dust collection bin that may have been pulled out causing the collection bin to close when vacuum tries to pass through. Try pushing the flap back in to see if that's the cause of your vacuum loss. To test if this is the cause try turning the cleaner on and feel the outlet leading into the removable bin to see if there is any air flow. If there is no air flow, unplug the vac and run a coat hanger through the inlet tube to find and clear any obstructions. Then take the vacuum outdoors, plug it in and turn it on to clear any dust or debris left in the vacuum chamber.

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.

Tear in Eureka Upright "The Boss" 4870
Posted by kdunnett on Jun 07, 2008
I have a tear in the hose of an upright Eureka "The Boss" 4870 vacuum. I cannot find how to release the parts I need to get the hose out and put in a new hose (which I already have) I've searched the Eureka site and the owner's manual - nothing about how to replace the hose itself. Thanks in advance.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Eureka 431A Optima Bagless Upright Vacuum. In answer to your question, the owner’s manual may or may not give an example to install the hose only, but on most vacuums the hose sometimes will screw in to the hose cuff on both ends unless if it is a hose assm then it will then twist and turn. Check with the
Eureka website and have them send out a schematic and owner’s manual for you so that you can install your hose properly. Sometimes you have to place hose glue on the end of each side in order for the hose to screw in properly. the website address will be listed below and they certainly should supply you with the owners’ manual and maybe a schematic of the parts breakdown that also may help. If not; check with your local vacuum cleaner 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.
