Roller brush will not turn on Eureka "The Boss Power Plus" 12 amp

\015 Hi. The roller brush won't turn so I assume a belt inside is broken or disconnected. Problem is I don't see a way to get inside the housing. Any ideas?\015

Answers :

Depending on the model there will be a couple of screws on the top plastic cover. The cover lifts off and the belt is then serviceable. On some models you will need to remove some parts on the bottom too to get the roller out.
In any case just look for screws that hold the covers on and explore a bit. You can't break anything.

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.

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

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?"
