HOW TO MAINTAIN
The instructions given in this booklet serve as a guide to routine maintenance. Keep
the vacuum cleaner at top operating efficiency. Clean the filter and empty the dust
container regularly. If the dust container is visibly full before finished cleaning, empty
as needed.
Dust Container and Motor Filter
Empty the dust container and clean the motor filter regularly to keep the vacuum
cleaner operating efficiently. Make sure the filter is securely attached in place before
vacuuming. Failure to replace the filter will allow dust to enter the motor section which
will damage the vacuum cleaner. Some fine particles can restrict airflow very quickly
and will decrease performance even before the dust container appears full. For that
reason, when vacuuming carpet fresheners or cleaners, powder, plaster dust, or
similar fine substances, the dust container and filter may need cleaning more often.
NOTE: Turn off the switch and unplug the electrical cord before emptying the
dust container and cleaning the motor filter.
Latch
Press the dust container latch, located
below the electrical cord, and rotate the
dust container off the unit. Grasp the
motor filter and pull up to remove.
Shake dust container contents into a
suitable container. Brush dust and dirt
from motor filter. If further cleaning is
desired, hand launder the washable
motor filter in warm water using a mild
detergent. Air dry thoroughly before
returning it to the dust container.
Tab
Slot
Motor
Filter
Replace motor filter into top of dust
container so rim of filter is seated
completely inside the container. Place the
dust container tab into the slot in the unit.
Pivot the sections together until the dust
container latch locks the container in
place.
A damaged or extremely soiled motor filter should be replaced. Pull back on the rubber
gasket to remove the used motor filter from the filter support frame. Keep the frame and
discard the used motor filter. Put the new filter over the frame and secure the lip of the
frame into the rubber gasket. Additional filters are available from The Eureka Company,
Bloomington, Illinois 61701 .
Order GENUINE EUREKA motor filter part no. 53820.

Brush Roll
The rotating brush roll sweeps and combs the carpet nap. Keep the brush roll free from
hair and threads so it will continue to be effective.
NOTE: Turn off the switch and unplug the electrical cord before cleaning the
brush roll.
Brush Roll Belt
The brush roll belt drives the brush to agitate, sweep, and comb the carpet nap. Even
though the belt may not need to be changed often, it should be checked regularly to be
sure it is in good condition. Replace the belt if it is stretching, cracking, or slipping. Cut
away any hair or thread wound around the brush roll or the belt pulley because the
buildup could cause the belt to rotate unevenly.
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 belt pulley when servicing the drive belt.
Pull back on the release lever and gently
pry the nozzle cover from both sides of
the housing.
Place vacuum cleaner so nozzle
opening is in view. Loosen the screw and
pry off the belt view cover to remove
belt from motor pulley. Rotate the
brush roll guard down and off the
housing. Lift out brush roll.
Place belt around brush roll. Hold the
brush roll so the shortest section is on
the right side and the flat sides of the
end caps are aligned with slots in the
nozzle. Push brush roll into cleaner.
Place lower side of belt around left
side of motor pulley and rotate into
position.
