Answers :

You have a clog in the hose (or somewhere) most likely the hose though. Find the clog -clean it out-let the machine cool down and you are back in business. This is really a good feature of the Eurekas because rather than continue to run and burn up the motor it shuts off -you clean it out and your vacuum is saved.
The automatic shut off is a protective feature and warning sign that some maintenance is needed. I let mine cool then tried it again to check suction. It had good suction on the floor and through the hose so there was no obstruction.

I removed the baseplate (3 simple phillips head screws - instructions are on the bottom of the vacuum for removing and replacing it.) The belt looked good and the beater bar just had minor strings wrapped around which I removed. I vacuumed it up (with another vacuum) - it was dusty but nothing obvious that would trigger the shut off.

Next I opened up the bag area - it was filthy and the bag was partially off. I removed the bag and found that on the bottom of the bag area is a "motor filter" which was also filthy. The motor filter is supposed to be checked and cleaned (or replaced) every 3 months. Well, like most of you, I didn't know that and have used it for a year or more without even a peek. It's easy to visually check this when you change the bag.

I took off the grid cover, took out the filter, shook and vacuumed it as the directions right next to it told me to do. It was still in good condition after I cleaned it so I replaced it. I vacuumed up the whole area, put in a new bag. Problem solved.

I have a Eureka Boss Power Plus and the beater bar is rolling, the belt is turning, but after vacuuming up around the litter box (not a lot of litter), when I turn the vacuum off, the litter, or even household dirt, falls out. When I hold the vacuum back to turn it off so that it doesn't fall on the floor, it's sitting in the cubby where the wheels are. The bag is empty, the hose is not plugged, the hose is securely fitted on both ends of the unit. This vacuum was purchased in July and is being

I have a Eureka 4800 series the Boss upright with a bag and Hepa filter. I love it! I was just vacuuming with the hose part and all was well and then suddenly the lower brush came on and a "burning" smell followed. Thought it was the belt so my husband was going to put on the new belt which I had on hand! When he turned it over, the "bar" that holds the belt looks as though it "shot through" the plastic side of the housing on the vacuum. There is melted plastic on the outside of the vacuum and o
