Having problems with your Eureka Smartvac 4870 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Eureka boss smart vac 4870 upright-How to replace on/off switch

\015 Vacuum stopped turning on. Opened up top where on/off switch is located. Found it totally fried and the plastic that was behind it was melted. Are parts available for self-fix or will I need to take to someone? If I have to take to someone, will it be worth it or should I get new vacuum?\015

Answers :

This just happened for the second time with our 4870. It about $8 part with shipping (total of $12) from 24x7 vaccum. Pretty easy to change out.
My problem was the opposite- vacuum would not turn off when plugged in. So I replaced the switch but still have the problem - will not turn off. Any ideas?

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
