Having problems with your Eureka Whirlwind 4480 Upright Vacuum ?

Eureka rm 4480

\015 I have no suction at the hose or down below. I changed the filters. The vacuum is a few years old. Is it time for a new one?\015

Answers :

Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au . Unless there is a bad sound coming from your vacuum i would suggest you have a blockage. This machine is prone to getting blockages in 3 different places.
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. at the base behind the brush.
  2. \015\012
  3. Inside the main suction hose - this should be removeable so you can drop a small coin through. If it doesnt fall easily viola blockage found.
  4. \015\012
  5. Where the dirt enteras the chamber or bag.
Basically start by removing all hoses and filters and turn machine on put your hand over all inlet and exit points provided you can feel airflow at one of these points work backwards from there and identify the point at which you no longer feel airflow.
HAPPY vacuuming !

I'm using (or WAS using) a Eureka ''the boss'' model 8803. The belt broke, no biggie, so I replaced it with a Eureka model U belt, the problem is when I put the new belt on and turn on the vaccuum, the belt breaks again. I am also having trouble getting the brush roller to fit right when the belt is in place. I can't find any sharp edges that would cut the belt,nor can I find where any small bits may have broken. Anyone have a solution for me?

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