Having problems with your Eureka Smartvac 4870 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

How do I remove motor from a Eureka 4870 GZ vac so I can replace

\015 The motor suddenly stop with the burning smell of plastic. After letting it cool it would only run at half speed, I can get to the motor but don't know how to remove it. Eureka said they would sell me a motoer for $27 but wouldn't give me a service diagram,\015

Answers :

I don't know the 4780, but I do know eureka uses two basic types of motor housings:.. One, on the sanitaire is pretty straightforward with 3 screws on the topside after removing the topcover.
The second type involves splitting the case, since the motor is mounted vertically and is a more involved project necessitating removing most everything. Here is a schematic, and while you can see there is a lot to pull off to do this, it's not impossible!
bear in mind, however, a replacement vac should only cost 50-70 dollars, so whatever your time is worth...

I have a Eureka Central Vac CV1601b. The motor does not stop unless the Unit is unplug from the electrical outlet. Any Idea?.I removed the control unit to check if there was disconnected wires or burnt wires. Everything look normal. The circuit board does not show area that overheated. There seem to be 2 relays. Likely one of the two went bad. What do you think.

If the unit is relay controlled, there is always the possibility that when the unit was turned on, the relay contacts welded themselves shut making the power button ineffective. \015\012\015\012If you're familiar with relay pinouts, with ... Vacuums

It looks like the motor shaft goes into a recessed place in the

Recently my central vac system started making a louder than usual and laboured sound when in uise, enough so that I took note and inspected the canister and motor while running. The motor was trowing off blue sparks and looked like it could 'POP' at any moment. I will not risk using it until I know what the problem is and how to repair it. My assumption is the motor needs to be replaced. The system came with the resale house I bought 3 yrs ago but I do not know the age of the system itself.
