Thermal Cut Off
This vacuum cleaner has a special thermostat that protects the cleaner in case of motor overheating. If the cleaner suddenly
shuts off, push the switch pedal once and unplug the cleaner. Check the cleaner for a possible source of overheating such as
a full bag, a blocked hose or clogged filter. If these conditions are found, fix them and wait at least 30 minutes before
attempting to use the cleaner. After the 30 minute period, plug the cleaner back in and turn on the switch. If the cleaner still
does not run, then take it to a Eureka Authorized Service Center for repair.

moving part (such as the revolving brush). Turn
off the switch and unplug the cleaner before
changing the cleaner height setting.
The front of the cleaner has an adjustment that raises or lowers
the cleaner base to match the type of carpet. With the cleaner
cord unplugged, set the adjustment to lowest setting for

Maintenance of Dirt Alert Feature (On some models)
The dirt alert sensor uses infra-red technology to indicate whether or not floors are clean. When debris breaks the light
beam, the red light comes on indicating additional cleaning is needed in this area. If there is no break in the light beam, the
floor is clean and no light will come on.
When using your new vacuum you may be cleaning deep down hidden dirt missed by your old vacuum causing the light to
stay red longer. With frequent cleaning, after the first few times you use your new Eureka vacuum, the red light should go
on less.
NOTE: The dirt alert feature is not intended to be used for above the floor cleaning with attachments.
The red light indicates dirt, dust, etc. is still being removed
from the area being cleaned.
How to Check the Dirt Alert Sensors
To check if dirt sensor is working properly.
1. While the red light is on, tip the vacuum backwards on rear
wheels, lifting the brush roll off the carpet a couple of inches.
Hose
2. After a few seconds the red light should turn off.
New carpeting has loose carpet fibers which will trip
the red light sensor beam.

HOW TO MAINTAIN
The instructions in this booklet serve as a guide to routine maintenance. To avoid unnecessary service calls, check the bag,
belt, and brush roll often.
Brush Roll
The brush roll turns as it sweeps and combs the carpet nap. Remove hair and threads from the brush roll so it continues
brushing the carpet. To maintain the most efficient cleaning, the bristles must touch the carpet. To test the bristle length,
hold a ruler against the underneath side of the cleaner. If the bristles no longer touch the ruler, replace the brush roll.
Brush Roll Belt
The brush roll belt turns the brush roll to agitate, sweep, and comb the carpet nap. Check the belt regularly to be sure it is
in good condition. Replace the belt if it stretches, cracks or loses tension. Cut away any hair or threads wound around the
brush roll or the belt pulley because the buildup could cause the belt to rotate unevenly.
How To Replace Brush Roll Belt
NOTE: Turn off the switch and unplug the electrical cord before replacing belt. Belt pulleys can become hot during
normal use. To prevent injury, avoid touching the motor pulley when checking the belt.

Disposable Dust Bag and Filters
The disposable dust bag plays a very important role in
the efficiency of a vacuum cleaner. The purpose of the
paper bag is to trap dirt. As the bag traps dirt, it must also
be porous enough to allow air to pass on through. If the
paper bag becomes clogged, no air can pass through the
cleaner and no cleaning can take place regardless of how
powerful the unit. Change the dust bag and check the filters
frequently. Some fine particles can restrict airflow very
quickly and will decrease performance even before the
bag appears to be full.
5
When vacuuming carpet fresheners or cleaners, powder,
plaster dust, or similar fine substances, the bag and filters
may require more frequent maintenance.
5. Place new belt around motor pulley.

Some models feature a Bag Change Indicator to remind
you to change the bag. The indicator on the bag cover
moves into the window as the airflow through the bag
decreases. Certain types of fine particles like powder,
plaster dust, or fine road dust can restrict airflow very
quickly. The fine particles will decrease performance even
before the bag appears to be full. Change the dust bag to
restore maximum performance.
Be sure to use GENUINE EUREKA Filteraire bags for best
performance. If a clean dust bag does not restore
maximum performance, check for obstructions in the hose
or airflow passage.

How To Replace Bags–Style AA Filteraire
NOTE: Turn off the switch and unplug the electrical cord before changing dust bag. Never operate the vacuum
cleaner without the dust bag or the filter.

knob.
No suction at the end of the
hose.
Change the bag. Hint: If picking up fine dust, the bag
may not look full, but a fine substance tends to reduce
suction when it blocks the airflow through the paper bag.
Remove any clogs from the hose that restrict the airflow.
Check both ends of the hose. (See pages 13-14)

THE EUREKA LIMITED WARRANTY
What This Warranty Covers
Your Eureka cleaner is warranted to be free from all defects in material and workmanship in normal household use for a period of one year. The warranty is granted only to the
original purchaser and members of his or her immediate household. The warranty is subject to the following provisions.
What This Warranty Does Not Cover
• Parts of the cleaner that require replacement under normal use, such as disposable dust bags, filters, drive belts, light bulbs, and brush roll bristles.
• Damages or malfunctions caused by negligence, abuse, or use not in accordance with the Owner’s Guide.
• Defects or damages caused by unauthorized service or the use of other than Genuine Eureka parts.
What The Eureka Company Will Do
The Eureka Company will, at its option, repair or replace a defective cleaner or cleaner part that is covered by this warranty. As a matter of warranty policy, the Eureka Company
will not refund the consumer’s purchase price.
Warranty Registration
Please fill out and return the warranty registration card accompanying your cleaner.
Obtaining Warranty Service
To obtain warranty service you must return the defective cleaner or cleaner part along with proof of purchase to any Eureka Authorized Warranty Station.
You will find the nearest location in the Yellow Pages, under “Vacuum Cleaners–Service and Repair.” Be certain that the Warranty Station is “Eureka Authorized.”
For the location of the nearest Eureka Authorized Warranty Station or for service information, telephone toll free:
USA: 1-800-282-2886
Mexico: 5670-6169
Canada: 1-800-282-2886
If you prefer, you can write to The Eureka Company, Service Division, 807 North Main Street, Bloomington, Illinois 61701, USA. In Canada write to The Eureka Company,
866 Langs Drive, Cambridge, Ontario N3H 2N7.
If it is necessary to ship the cleaner outside your community to obtain warranty repair, you must pay the shipping charges to the Eureka Authorized Warranty Station.
Return shipping charges will be paid by the Warranty Station. When returning parts for repair, please include the model, type, and serial number from the data plate on the cleaner.
Further Limitations and Exclusions
Any warranty that may be implied in connection with your purchase or use of the cleaner, including any warranty of Merchantability or any warranty for Fitness For A Particular
Purpose is limited to the duration of this warranty. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitations may not apply to you.
Your relief for the breach of this warranty is limited to the relief expressly provided above. In no event shall Eureka be liable for any consequential or incidental damages you
may incur in connection with your purchase or use of the cleaner. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above
limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights. You may also have other rights which vary by state.

Questions & Answers about Genuine Eureka Products
Q: Why should I use only Genuine Eureka paper bags, belts, and parts in my Eureka vacuum cleaner?
A: Using Genuine Eureka Products, which are made to our exacting specifications and engineered with emphasis on quality, performance, and customer satisfaction,
ensures the long life and cleaning efficiency of your vacuum cleaner. Overall, this saves you money and helps to keep your home clean.
Q: How can I be sure I am using only genuine Eureka products in my vacuum cleaner?
A: Typically, packaged products and paper bags can be identified by a “Genuine Eureka Product” symbol (see illustration above). For further identification assistance,
you may call our toll-free number, 1-800-282-2886, for the location of a nearby Eureka Authorized Warranty Station.
Q: Are there any differences between “made to fit” or “imitation” and Genuine Eureka paper bags, belts, and parts?
A: Yes, there are some very important differences in materials, quality, and reliability. Many customers have mistakenly purchased “imitation” paper bags and parts
while thinking they purchased genuine. Unfortunately, many of these customers discovered the differences after they experienced related difficulties.
