Having problems with your Eureka 2961AVZ Bagless Upright Vacuum ?

My vacuum (Eureka Bagless Model 2961 AVZ) will not START!

\015 My vacuum (Eureka Bagless Model 2961 AVZ) will not turn on. The on/off switch has been sloppy (best word I could find to describe it) for a while, but recently it stopped working completely.\015

Answers :

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.
I had the same problem with mine. REPLACE THE POWER SWITCH.

Smoking belt Hey I have a Eureka 2961 avz bagless vacuum, and if it's on for a few minutes i can smell the belt burning.  If the vacuum is left on any longer the belt starts smoking.  I took the case off and there was a little debris but not much.  Is there a cause and fix or just time to replace the belt?


Belt is slipping because the bearings on the beater brushes, which it turns, are jammed or full of dust. \015\012Alternatively the belt has stretched after being overheated and needs replacing because it now slips. ... Eureka 2961AVZ Bagless Upright Vacuum

I have a Eureka Power Plus vacuum, model 4702, type A. To start off, it never really had great suction. Marginal at best. Then today I was vacuuming and smelled something burning and turned off the vacuum. At that point, smoke started pouring out from the bottom of the vacuum so I layed it on it's side and the smoke cleared but I never found the source. Is it safe to turn on again after I let it cool down or is my vacuum "shot?"

The belt on my vacuum cleaner model 6596 bissel powerforce bagless turbo keeps breaking. As soon as I put on a new belt and start it up the belt snaps. It is the durabelt meant for this vacuum model. Also, my son has been having the same problem with his. He has the same model and same belt. This problem is occurring even after a thourough cleaning.


I would guess you aren't centering the belt correctly, thus it's edge is caught between the brush and another solid object, causing the breakage.\015\012When you get the belt on the the brush and the brush back in place, turn the brush a few ti ... Bissell 6596 Bagless Upright Vacuum

Generally, on something with a cord and plug, the first thing I suspect is a bad spot in the cord where it connects to the plug.

Hello. I have an electrolux glider upright bagless vacuum cleaner (UK model) who's brushes do not rotate any more. I'm guessing that I need to replace the drive belt but I have no idea where to start. I would appreciate any tips. thanks

My eureka vacuum won't suction and starts to smoke when I try to use it. It sounds like it is suctioning when I first turn it on, but after about 20 seconds it begins to smell like burning and does not suction at all. I have tried cleaning and unclogging the filter and everything. It's bagless so I don't need a new bag.


The problem is that your belt is stretched and worn. This causes that burning smell and it also causes the vacuum to not pick up well. You need to replace the belt. Here is the belt you need and the manual with instructions: ... Eureka Altima Upright Vacuum Model 2996AVS Vacuum
