Having problems with your Eureka Smartvac 4870 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

No suction on my eureka boss smart vac. The belt is fine and the roller moves. I just changed the bag but no dice. any insight?

Answers :

I know this is an old question but this is a good vac and maybe I can\012 help somebody else some day, wish I'd figured this out a couple months \012ago when this problem first started. :} Anywho, \012this is another option from an amateur; I don't know the right terms but\012 here goes: Right below the yellow flow knob (Floor/Hose) are the tops \012of two hoses, one to floor beater, one leading to hose. There is a sort\012 of black clip holding these in place. Open it up, it hinges toward the\012 front of the vacuum. On the back of the vacuum to the right of the \012lower cord wrap is a gray screw-looking thing, with little pix of locks \012imprinted above - one locked, one unlocked. Turn the screw toward \012unlock. Take the top of the black tube that leads to the hose and maneuver it out of the hole it's in, and you may find your clog in the top there. I found just a handful of dog hair, leaves and sticks stuffed in that tube but it was dense enough to stop flow to the hose. Removing it fixed the problem completely.
Yes, try this:
\015\012Remove the beater bar again, and check the suction cavity behind it. This is where they usually plug up.

I have a Kirby G series diamond edition. There seems to be no suction when I turn on the vaccum. The bag inflates, but the roller does not turn. It has a new belt and the roller brush is clean. Any suggestion on what I might do to increase the suction and get the roller bar moving?


Hi guys, I have a bissell 9400 2x proheat with a fault. When you turn on the machine it trips the RCD in my house and makes a poping noise, i am a little technical so i had a look inside. The pcb under the handle was damaged with burn marks i unpluged this and tried again and the machine powered up, don't think the rollers moved though. What do i need to change roller motor,pcb?? Help please!! Regards Russ

I've seen the same problem in one of these we had in for repair. The pcb in the handle is involved with controlling the roller motor. The problem is with the motor. In my view, this machine is a triumph of design over practicality... The motor is loc ... Vacuums

The brush is not moving on the vaccume. I'm pretty sure that the belt is busted. I cannot see how to get the shroud off, so that I can get to the roller and belt. It all looks and feels like one piece, even when I start removing screws. It is a bag-less vac. The model number is - v1310rs. Thank you.

I know on my Eureka I had to remove a couple of screws on the bottom and then get a flat blade screwdriver and wedge it on each side of the base kinda next where the end of the roller would be and it snaps up and off.

Kirby upright smells like a foot. Changed the bags. We had to move it to the garage for storage beacuse it made the closet smell like bad shoes. Gets strong when used

Check the brush for accumulated hair, and other debris. If the brush is belt driven check the condition of the belt, over time the rubber deteriorates and melts when heated up during use creating a burning rubber odor. ... Kirby G6 Bagged Upright Vacuum

My Oreck XL was working fine, then when I vacuumed a shag rug is started smoking and smelled like something is burning. (I changed the bag, checked for clogs--none found, and roller brush is turning. It has a metal handle.) Now I am afraid to use it.

Even though the brush is spinning, the belt is probably worn out and stretched. when you vacuum the shag carpet, it puts more drag on the brush. try running it on a shorter carpet or hard floor for a few minutes. if it doesn't smoke, then you know i ... Oreck XL2000 Bagged Upright Vacuum

I have a dirt devil featherlite plus and all of the sudden it started pushing hard and smells hot. I cleaned the roller, changed the bag, checked the belt. The belt is a little wore, but not bad.

If it is pushing hard then you still have a belt problem. It may not be broken but the belt is stretched out too long and will not turn the roller brush fast enough to make it push easy. ... Dirt Devil M085500 Featherlite Plus Bagged Upright Vacuum
