Customer Questions & Answers for
Eureka AirSpeed Bagless Upright Vacuum, AS1000A

Cleans Carpets Better Than The Leading Bagless Uprights* Unlike other vacuums, the Eureka AirSpeed Bagless Upright Vacuum, AS1000A has two smooth tubes, featuring limited bends and turns. This allows more air to pass through the vacuum. The direct airpath from floor to cup in the Eureka AirSpeed Vacuum Cleaner decreases the distance for dirt to travel, which increases the amount of air flow for power suction. *Based on independent lab test using ASTM F608 to measure embedded dirt removal from carpet as compared to top 5 vacuums in Dollar and Unit sales in 2009 according to NPD point of sale data.

It does have brushes on the edges on the front part where the main brush is. It does very well on edges. We purposely placed some little trash bits on the corners and it picked them all up. I think the design of the brush guard in the front is such that it allows the brush to be closer to the edge. I recommend it, just switched over from a Bissell (which totally lost suction) and it didnt handle at all as well as this one.

I wouldn't recommend for any of floor type. It leaves behind lint on carpet and drags on berber. I can't find a setting that works for berber. It's it drags or it's too high and doesn't pick up. The best feature is the tools feature but it's not worth the investment.

Yes, it is easy to push, however it depends on the level that you set the brushes on (based on the type of floor). It can be very easy to push, very lightweight, if you have the brushes up high, but much harder to push if you have the brushes sitting lower. I have used heavier and I have used lighter. My Kenmore was a lot lighter, but it only lasted a few months, and even with 2 trips to the repair place it was never the same. I would recommend this one.

There is a bar with two wheels on it on the bottom. That bar lowers when the handle is locked. That prevents the beater bar from touching your carpet. So while the bar is not "off" is it in effect not working and your floors are safe.

I had to force my bar to go into the main base the while setting it up. Now it works just fine.

I work for Eureka and you cannot shut the brush roll off on the AirSpeed. It does have a bare floor setting, but if you are looking to clean a lot of bare floors I would recommend the Eureka Complete Clean bagless upright or Smart Vac bagged upright, both available on Walmart.com. These two cleaners have on/off brush rolls.

That is in the ear of the listner... unless you have a meter, and I don't. This is much quieter then my previous Hoover. It is a bit lower pitched also then the hoover. But it still appears to be a DC brush type moter so it does still have that brush whine.
answered 4 years ago
By

answer 3
I have noticed on other models that when it gets high pitched it usually means that the filters are at capacity and need to be cleaned, and even then the power is not good anymore. This vacumm held its power the whole way through my home. The cup was full to capacity and it still was constant in sound. It is not loud but a constant purr.

answer 4
It has a more muffled sound. It doesn't seem to have the higher whistle of wind a dyson has, the rumble of the motor is less grr sounding than a hoover. The brush does make a good hrummm sound but it depends on the carpet pile depth. Over all it's not bad. Worst case I'm sure you can find away to test them out at sears or lowes. Eurekas in general sound similar

There are 2 spots where the cord wraps around, top and bottom.

The bottom hook can be rotated so that it is no longer retaining the cord. Allowing you to easily remove the whole cord without unwrapping it from the two hooks.

The cord wraps around 2 posts/holders. The bottom post pivots, so you can pull the cord off easily. That would be my only guess at what this means. It is like most other upright cord wrap mechanisms, where the vacuum does not have cord retraction.

This machine has incredible suction power. I had an old vacuum, which I thought was great, until it broke and I bought this one, and my goodness didn't know I had so much dirt in the carpets. It's a good buy, and easy to assemble as everything clicks into place. I have never purchased a Eureka before, always stuck to the better know names, but this is a good buy.

This vacuum has tremendous suction power and I also have six cats, so I know about having cat hair issues... this vacuum leaves NOTHING behind and is very easy to clean. It is not lightweight and the hose is very short, so if she has stairs to clean, this may not be a good vacuum for her, but if it's just to use as an upright, it's a great deal for the money.

I work for Eureka and think this is a fantastic idea. One question, does your friend like the idea of using bags? The reason I ask, some people like their Oreck because it uses high filtration bags because of allergies. Walmart now has a bagged version of the AirSpeed for shoppers that prefer bagged over bagless, which uses premium filtration Arm & Hammer dust bags that eliminate odors. The AirSpeed ABS bagged is model number AS1050A.

Make sure that you have the brushes set on the right height. If they're not they won't turn so the belt won't turn so it melts.

I went to the Eureka website and there is a toll free number to call. If you have a receipt or even a serial number (on the side of the box), they may be able to give you some help as the machine should be under a one year warranty.

I work for Eureka® and would like for you to contact our customer assistance helpline at 1-888-274-3691. The belt may have been pinched by the hood causing it to break, but our customer service representative will be better able to properly diagnose the cause over the telephone.

I have very deep pile carpet in my 2 bedrooms. Seems to work well. Has a height adjustment. I set it on low for LR/DR and high for bedrooms. It's a little harder to push on the high carpets, but seems to get them nice and fluffy and clean.

I have very dense carpeting and I had just vacuumed my carpet with my Dyson and I went over it with my new Eureka air speed and I had to empty the canister twice. The suction is very strong.
So, yes, it does work on deep carpeting.

Great, I have Frieze carpet and it completely picked it back up and cleaned it thoroughly!! I was thinking I would have to replace my carpet that was only 2 years old since it looked so worn. This vacuum has brought it back to life.. Good luck finding a better vacuum for the $$.

It works great! We have deep carpets in the living room and it sucks up alot of dust. The Dyson would make a loud screeching noise when we used it on our deep carpet because it was stopping itself before ruining the belt. We had no problem with the Eureka. I honestly LOVE this sweeper. Like I said, it takes alot to take time out and write so much about a sweeper :). I LOVE it!!

I work for Eureka and have been using AirSpeed at home for several months. We purchased a really plush carpet last year and the AirSpeed works fantastic with the height adjustment set on the highest setting. I did have someone ask about using AirSpeed on a Frieze Carpet, what used to be shag carpet in the old days, and I do not have any experience on this type of carpet. I suggest if this is the type of deep pile carpet you are cleaning that you consult the manufacturer of the carpet to find out what types of vacuums should be used for daily cleaning.

How much suction does the hose have? Can it suck up sand and dirt from 3 inches away?

That'a a loaded question. Wet sand is almost impossible to pick up with a household vacuum. My shop vac will pick up wet sand. Also what kind of dirt, powder, clay...hard to answer.

What I can say is that when using the extension wand it pulls dust off the top of the baseboards with just the crevice tool, where my old vac had to "scrub" with the dusting brush.

After using the hose for awhile the AirSpeed attachment and extension need a strong yank to separate them.

It has great suction! It can suck up hair from that distance but I doubt any vacuum can get sand and dirt. Little confused by having to vacuum from 3 inches away. If it's hard to reach use the hose.

Mine can. We have to make sure larger loose objects such as paper and fabric are out of the way so they aren't vac'd too.

I only had the vacuum for a day (I bought it for hardwood floors, and it was not good on them at all), but the suction from the hose was very good.

I tried putting it one the floor across from a little piece of paper and it did not suck it up until about 2 inches away. But this vacumn has the BEST power I have ever felt on a vacumn. I think it is as good as my shop vac. It gets all the crumbs/dirt/etc out of the cracks in my hard wood floor.

3 inches is probably a stretch but probably on a bare floor, I tested this with some cat food that I laid on the carpet and it needed to be about an inch away for it to move it, that kind of suction is probably going to be hard to find in a $100 vacuum, but this does a fine job anyways

of this machine is the noise. But at the
