Answers :

Use two hands to presscontroll button upward until it snaps in place.
You really have to push hard on that switch for it to engage; both thumbs; I'm 190 pounds and I still had to apply a lot of extra pressure; poor design for a great vacuum cleaner

I purchased a brand new Eureka Pet vacuum, sorry don't know exact name but it the one that has the self cleaning duster on it. Last night I used the vacuum on my carpet, it was working fine until I accidently sucked up the corner of a scarf that was hanging off a couch. I shut the vacuum off, pulled out the scarf and and resumed vacuuming. Much to my dismay the suction on the vacuum had ceased. Can you tell me if there is a reset button on the vacuum? The vacuum does not appear to be damage

The handle for my Eureka 5993 AVZ was getting very hot when used. Finally, the wires around the switch melted and now the vacuum will not work. What is wrong? Is the switch bad? The wires only melted in the immediate vicinity of the three-prong switch. Nothing else appears to be wrong; the vacuum worked fine when it was running - except for the handle getting hot. Thank you!

I have a Eureka 5902AVZ and the brushroll does not work. when i remove the belt, which is not torn nor worn out, the motor spins perfectly fine. Though when i put the brushroll back into place, it shows that the motor is trying to spin, but with resistance. it seems the brushroll will not spin if locked into place, because there is no attachment on the left side of the brushroll that will allow it to spin freely with the belt. am I missing some parts or is there something else wrong?

I have the eureka capture vacuum and it works great; however, it has recently started making an extremely high pitched sound when I use it. It is still vacuuming but the noise is so loud it hurts my head and I can only vacuum for a few minutes at a time before I have to turn it off. What is wrong with it???

Let's try this again. The main vacuum and hose works fine, the "foot" does not. When I turn it on, it shuts off automatically and the light comes on telling me to "check brushroll". I did this and removed all hair, strings, etc., Still won't work. Please respond. The last post took over 30 minutes with no response.


Sounds like you have hair or carpet buildup in the roller and it is not freely rotating and you are getting an error. If there is no buildup, then roller bearings may be frozen up, or the unit has a faulty capacitor and is not going to work due to el ... Vacuums

My vacuum cleaner works, all but the "foot". It turns off automatically and the light comes on telling me to "check brushroll". I've done this and removed all hair, strings, etc. It still turns off automatically, while the main vacuum and hose remain on. What else can I do?


Please post back with a brand and advise more info, however , I assume this is a canister vac with hose and `power head``. Often a power head brush roll will build up hair and thread which travels and winds up at the end of the brush wher ... Vacuums

I have an Eureka Express canister vacuum - I believe it's model 8284 - that just stopped working. Plug it in, turn it on, and absolutely nothing happens. I took it to the local sew and vac place and they say it's a circuit board that is no longer available. I've looked at all the parts lists and diagrams for that vacuum and I would swear there isn't a circuit board there. (I wouldn't have even thought that in 1989 they would have used circuits.) In any case, I absolutely love this machine a

I bought a used vacuum seal machine (hobart model ht-120) it does excellent vacuum but it doesnt seal correctly all the time. it seems like there is something wrong with the valve that activates the bar that goes up and makes pressure and heats the bag for complete sealing. The heating is perfect but what is not working is what make the bar go up and down.

On/off switch we have two of these vacuums at work, and both of there on/off switches dont work too well. its hard to explain, but when u normally turn it on or off theres a little resistance in the switch and you hear a click, with both of ours the switch moves freely back and forth from on to off, no resisntace, no click, and the machine doesnt stay on, or off for that matter. the switch just moves back and forth.

I have a Eureka Upright vacuum (4800 Series). When I try to start it by turning the switch on, it wont. For few days, I was able to get around this problem by repeatedly turning the switch on and off until it turned on but that does not work any more. Could it be something related to the switch it self or the power cable. My wife mentioned that one of my kids might have pulled the power cable too hard (at the back of the vacuum). Any help to solve this problem will be very much appreciated. Tha
