Having problems with your Eureka Smartvac 4870 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Eureka 4870 roller only spins in upright

\015 I have replaced the belt. Spins fine while flipped over with brush facing upward. As I vacuum with it the brush stops, but if I move the handle/angle towards an upright position the brush starts spinning and practically pulls itself as it should.\015

Answers :

If the belt has been slipping it may have pollished the moteror brush shaft and it just slips. take a small piece of sand paper or enery cloth and ruffen up the shaft to give it some grip.
\015\012if the metal shaft of the motor has been heated up due to slippage it will take some doing to ruffun it as the shaft will be hardend due to heat

My hoover windtunnel is not picking anything up all of a sudden. Also the roller underneith is not spinning. I've replaced filters and the attachment part is working fine, just when it's in the upright position it won't pick anything up. It also doesn't seem to be self propelled anylonger either. It use to **** everything up, including the dog. Please help!


The belt that drives the brush roll has broken. That's why it doesn't pick up and why it doesn't pull itself forwards. Check the User Manual (download from Hoover website if necessary) for information on replacing the belt. Good luck! ... Hoover U6630-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum
