Having problems with your Eureka Boss SuperLite Bagless Upright Vacuum, 405AVacuum ?

My vacuum caught on fire when I tried replacing the belt and when I tried to unclog it. Is this common for other people, or am I just very lucky?


Answers :

Today sadly to say it is common for most vacuums. The quality is so poor that the roller brushes don't last long and can burn up belts as fast as you can replace them. Next time you want to buy a vacuum, turn it up side down and see what the roller brush is made of. If is is steel then buy it, if it is wooden or plastic forget it.

I have a Shark Steam Mop, model S3101, that caught on fire. Looks as though a wire inside rubbed until it became exposed and then caught fire. I have had this unit for about 1 1/2 to 2 years; liked the concept of steaming my floors rather than using detergents. I am not happy though about spending $100 on this unit and then it only lasted this long.

My Kirby G 2001 upright vacuum wont turn on. I tried another outlet and still nothing. I don't see a breaker switch anywhere. If you know of any common problems I would love to hear them. I am very mechanically inclined, I just was wondering if there are any common issues with the motors or power switches etc. so I don't waste a lot of time troubleshooting. Thanks

Bissell Pro Heat 7901 will spay through hose but not the floor and red flow indicator will not spin.

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

On the manual, it says that we have to use a special kerozene. But people familiar to Coleman lamp say that petrol should be fine since our old parents hav

When squeezing trigger and Depressing Clean surge Button on Upper handle of the Hooover Steam Cleaner F5914-900 there is no "snap" indicating trigger rod is in place. Everything else went in as instructed. The screws and bolts were no problem this concerns me because the main complaint I read about this model was leaking from the trigger and clean surge and the problem was not getting the rod in place. No matter how many tries or people (three) it still doesn't occur.

I realized that their was cloggage in the vacuum part that vacuums the carpet and unclogged it. I then tried to turn on and it was dead. I have the water filled just above the stick.


The clog may have over heated the motor, usually if you unplug it then after little while, try it again. If it still won't go, does the separator turn easily or is it bound up and won't turn. Take it off and see if the motor will run(without water) ... Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum
