Having problems with your Eureka 2971AV EZ Kleen Bagless Upright Vacuum ?
Problem with vacuum
\015 Hello,\015\012\015\012I'm not sure which model of Eureka my office has but I know it is one of those bagless ones. While vacuuming it got very quiet and then just turned itself off.. It will not turn back on. Did it overheat? Does the belt need to be replaced? This is our third vacuum! Please let me know if there are any quick fixes.\015\012\015\012Thanks!\015\012\015\012Worried Vacummer.\015\[email protected]\015\[email protected]\015
Alot of times the cord is the problem, but it could be the motor protector, or the motor. I would check the cord first.

My Riccar 1700 will intermittently lose power while vacuuming. I have had the vacuum for 4 years and this is the second time that I have had this problem. The first time the authorized repairperson said the problem was a dirty hepa filter. The second time, the repairperson put on a "pig-tail"(?) and said that he did not have a shut-down problem when he tested the vacuum in the store. I just picked it up from the store today, brought it home and the same problem occurred within minutes.

Suction problem I have a Hoover Widepath Fold Away, 12 amp motor vacuum cleaner and the problem I am having is every time I vacuum, the vacuum gets clogged up with carpet. I am probably only able to do one stroke then it gets clogged and I have to stop and unclog it or it spits it out on the carpet. This is very frustrating and I don't get much vacuuming done. Please can you help me. Thank you. Gwen email is [email protected]

Hello, I have a problem with my Eureka Powerline bagged upright vacuum. It has a 12 amp motor and is model #4352, Type D. It was probably bought new in 1998. My problem is, while vacuuming today the motor seemed to slow down all of the sudden and then began smelling like burning rubber. I shut the vacuum off to check for blockages but could not find anything blocked. When I then turned it on again it runs but seems to only be running at 1/2 the motor speed and still has the rubber buring smell.
It sounds like a rubber sealing in the motor has come loose and is being constantly rubbed against the walls of the motor with would cause the smell and loss of motor speed caused by the fricton of rubber against the rod so if you can get to the moto ... Vacuums
While vacuuming the red light for the bag of the vacuum came on and the vacuum stopped. The bag was no where near full so I replaced it with a new bag - same problem. It vaccumes for a minute or then stops with bag light on. It is the correct bag for the machine - so what's the problem?

Dirt devil vacuum cleaner--trouble vacuuming dirt and pet hair on carpeting --is the problem with the spinning brush which contacts the floor, not contacting the carpeting?? I thought (when I bought this vacuum) that the aforementioned brush was adjustable to various heights of carpeting. Sometimes, it seems like nothing is being vacuumed up --unless I have just put a new bag on the vacuum... Do I need or can I replace the spinning brush on the bottom of the vacuum so it kicks up and vacuums

Vacuum problem i have a bissell total floor velocity and everytime i turn it on it makes this really loud noise like it's about to exploded. We changed the belt but that wasn't the problem and we just bought the vacuum a little over a year ago.

I have a Eureka Upright vacuum (4800 Series). When I try to start it by turning the switch on, it wont. For few days, I was able to get around this problem by repeatedly turning the switch on and off until it turned on but that does not work any more. Could it be something related to the switch it self or the power cable. My wife mentioned that one of my kids might have pulled the power cable too hard (at the back of the vacuum). Any help to solve this problem will be very much appreciated. Tha

My beater bar does not work on my vacuum. The problem is not in the hose or the attachment, because I connected to another electrolux vacuum and it worked. So the problem must be in the canister.

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

I have a Simplicity S24 canister vacuum. It's about 3 yrs. old. In the past year I have had it in the shop 4 times because when using the rug piece, the piece turns on & off, on & off. The actual vacuum doesn't... just the rug piece. I recently spent $65 on a new part, after spending countless dollars the other 3 times it was in the shop for this problem. I'm ready to buy another name vacuum altogether as I feel this vacuum is not worth the money that was spent on it. I'm very frustrated.

Won't start. My son was using the vacuum & Didn't change the bag. The vacuum was making the full bag smell, but the light was't on & it didn't stop. I stopped him, changed the bag, checked the filter, closed the compartments & turned on the vacuum. Nothing happened. I checked to be sure that it was plugged in, that wasn't the problem. I've let the vacuum "rest" for several days, It still won't start. Any suggestions?
