Eureka Boss 4D (5892BVZ) - Switch Replacement & Fried Wires

\015 I have a Eureka Boss 4D (5892BVZ). The switch burned out frying the wires in the handle. Can I fix this myself? What parts would I need? How would I go about doing the repair? I was able to take the handle apart easily, but I do not know how to go about replacing the switch or if I would need to replace the switch, the cord, the wires. All the wires around the switch are frayed or fried, but the wires beyond that point look fine. Thanks.\015

Had exactly the same problem with my upright Eureka Model 5893\015\012bagless. Eventually, the handle would get hot, and finally it just\015\012quit. When handle was disassembled, the wires were melted and it was\015\012toast. Ordered a switch after talking\015\012to several repair men. Talked to Eureka, too, and they were absolutely\015\012no help. Cheap wiring and switch made in China. Good luck trying to\015\012find a switch. vacuum-depot.com has switches, so you might try there,\015\012but make sure you get the 3-prong switch (same switch used on Eureka's\015\012Genesis). It is Part #27871.

The handle for my Eureka 5993 AVZ was getting very hot when used. Finally, the wires around the switch melted and now the vacuum will not work. What is wrong? Is the switch bad? The wires only melted in the immediate vicinity of the three-prong switch. Nothing else appears to be wrong; the vacuum worked fine when it was running - except for the handle getting hot.

My electrolux ambassador power wand quit working. I replaced the switch that shuts it off when the roller stops, but it wasn't the problem. The on/off switch is fine, the motor is fine.

My 4870 K Boss is 2 years old. I have replaced belts & filters in the specified intervals. This last time I replaced the belt after a year, it shredded 3 of them on the outside edge of the belt in about 5 minutes of use. I ordered a new brush roller & heavy duty belt which I installed. It began shredding the belt in less than 5 minutes of use. What is your suggestion? Is this a known problem with this model? Eureka says no and is not standing behind it.


The only reason why it would be shredding the belt is if the pulleys were not lined up correctly. Check the allignement of the belt to make sure there is nothing kepping the pulleys from being in line. The other thing that it could be is if the rolle ... Vacuums
