Having problems with your Eureka 4495A Bagless Upright Vacuum ?

How do you replace the belt on the Eureka 4495A Upright?


Answers :

Hi there,

on this model there are 2 screws on the top of the unit just above the brush as you are looking at it.
Remove the 2 screws there and the top cover should come off.

There is also a black and yellow sticker under the top cover near the belt that describes in detail on how to change the belt there. Once that is done line up the cover and put the screws back in.

Good luck .

I have the Eureka 4870 "The Boss" Smart Vac. The beater bar began to turn constantly and can't be shut by moving the Brush Roll Contol to Bare Floor position or the machine to the upright postion. It has also eaten two new belts. A local tech says he has seen this problem whereby the free-wheel assembly that makes contact with the belt to engage the beater bar is misalgned and cannot disengage. It is usually the chassis which would mean replacement of enough parts that would not be worthwhile

I am replacing drive belt on Eureka 4870 upright. Before installing I removed bottomplate and was cleaning out accumulated lint, hair and grit. Found a pair of identical (reciprocal) felt gaskets sucurely inserted above and below the roller brush, and one small loose piece of felt approximately 1/3 inch wide by 1 inch long that came out as I was pulling out debris. It has a slight crease across the middle as though I was not resting on an entire flat surface, but I find no other clues as to wher

I just bought a good Sears Kenmore Progressive 300 upright vacuum (116.38812891) today at a garage sale for five bucks. I left my relic Electrolux with the new owners of my former home during a recent relocation. In the interim I bought a Bissel 3750H which I do not care for, and borrowed a Eureka 7685 AU which performs somewhat better. I cleaned up the Kenmore, and though it seems to run well, noticed the drive belt is showing signs of degeneration. I would like to replace it, but was unable t

The original belt on my upright Kenmore Progressive broke and I replaced it with the spare that was in the vacuum. The vacuum and spare belt are about 10 years old. Then the spare broke after one vacuuming session and there was a burning smell coming from the vacuum. I ordered new belts and replaced it with the new belt. It seems to be working fine with no smell. I checked the belt after I vacuumed the family room and although it was in tact, the belt was very hot. Is that normal? Should t

I'm using (or WAS using) a Eureka ''the boss'' model 8803. The belt broke, no biggie, so I replaced it with a Eureka model U belt, the problem is when I put the new belt on and turn on the vaccuum, the belt breaks again. I am also having trouble getting the brush roller to fit right when the belt is in place. I can't find any sharp edges that would cut the belt,nor can I find where any small bits may have broken. Anyone have a solution for me?


First, make sure you have the right belt, second, i am thinking that you are not lineing the roller up right, it will only fit one way. look at the ends of the roller and the grooves where it slides in, you should be able to see clearly how it goes. ... Vacuums

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
