Eureka, whirlwind 12 amp vacuum does not pick up anything

\015 When using the nozzle and tube it does pick up , but the main rolling\015\012vaccuum does not pick up anything, can not find my directions on how to\015\012change the belt( this might be the problem right? although the bottom\015\012rooler is spinning fast) what do I do to solve this problem.\015

Answers :

That problem can be caused by the belt being stretched out and even though it is spinning when you look at it, with the resistance of the carpet it will stop.

With a model number I could tell you exactly how to change the belt, but most of the whirlwinds I've seen are similar.

You need to gain access the belt and roller. On most models there are two screws on the top of the nozzle inside one of the four indentions that run along each side. Once you take those out it allows you to take the hood off.

Remove the brush roller and old belt. Wrap the new belt around the motor shaft and place the roller through the belt loop and use the roller as leverage to stretch the roller back into the roller housing. It will take a little muscle. Give the roller a spin by hand before putting the hood back on. It should spin easily. If it doesn't then you might have pinched the belt and need to free it or the belt will just burn up when you turn the unit on.

A clog in the hose going down to the nozzle would also cause this problem, so check that hose when you take the hood off.

Hello, I have a problem with my Eureka Powerline bagged upright vacuum. It has a 12 amp motor and is model #4352, Type D. It was probably bought new in 1998. My problem is, while vacuuming today the motor seemed to slow down all of the sudden and then began smelling like burning rubber. I shut the vacuum off to check for blockages but could not find anything blocked. When I then turned it on again it runs but seems to only be running at 1/2 the motor speed and still has the rubber buring smell.


It sounds like a rubber sealing in the motor has come loose and is being constantly rubbed against the walls of the motor with would cause the smell and loss of motor speed caused by the fricton of rubber against the rod so if you can get to the moto ... Vacuums

My filter queen just had the motor rebuilt last year and was basically a brand new unit when I got it back. It is not picking anything up now when I vacuum. The beater bar on the carpet attachment is turning fine and when I take all the attachments off the hose I can feel the suction being created like it should be picking up debris just fine. I have emptied the canister even when it did not have much in it; however, it still will not pick anything up off the carpet. It picks up debris tempo

My Kirby Heritage II vacuum is not picking up dirt up out of the carpet like usual, and I have to keep setting it lower to pick anything up. I finally get it to such a low setting that it starts sucking the carpet up and makes a whirring noise, and starts smelling. Every time this happens, we find the belt has been burned. We are wondering if the brush roll inside with the brushes that pick up dirt are worn out and too short?
