I have a Eureka 'The Boss Smart Vac'. The beater

\015 I have a Eureka 'The Boss Smart Vac'. The beater bar turns when there's no load on it, however when it's on the carpet it stops turning. The motor shaft turns however there's not enough friction between the belt and the motor pully to turn the beater bar. Is the belt simply stretched-out and needing to be replaced? Any solution?\015

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

Eureka Boss Smart Vac 4870 evidentally overheated. Allowed unit to cool and observed a spark/smoke at outlet when it was replugged into the power outlet. Unit will not power up now.

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. When I hold the vacuum back to turn it off so that it doesn't fall on the floor, it's sitting in the cubby where the wheels are. The bag is empty, the hose is not plugged, the hose is securely fitted on both ends of the unit. This vacuum was purchased in July and is being
