Questions & Answers for Eureka Eureka Pet Lover Bagless Cyclonic Upright Vacuum with HEPA Filter, 8863AVZ

Question

How does the pet brush work?

Does the brush roller part of the pet brush roll only by suction or does it roll electrically. If it's suction only it will stop rolling if too much pressure is used, correct? If it's powered electrically then it should keep rolling?

It is powerd by suction, but the way it's made Im not sure you could actualy stop the brush roll by putting to much pressure on it. I haven't realy tried though. it works well for me, it's powerful enough that theres realy no need to put extra pressure on it when you use it on furniture or stairs. Hope this helps!

The attachments are onboard. The vacuum seems heavier than comparable vacuums... Because I live in a single level home, it's not a problem, but I would not want have to use it on stairs or carry it up and down stairs.

The vacuum is a bit heavy, about 25lbs. The attachments all store on board. I should mention there is no cord rewind though. But I still love this vacuum, well worth the price.

I work for Eureka and the Capture Plus Pet weighs 22.5 pounds. On board tools include a dusting brush, air powered Pet turbo tool with revolving brush for stairs and upholstery, and a wand with an extra long crevice tool stored inside. This unit also features a telescopic self cleaning duster that stores on the side of the vacuum. After using the duster snap it back into the holster and spin it clean with the turn of a knob while the vacuum is running.

Not sure I just threw it away today. Hose was not very flexible and tended to tip the vacuum over after just a few feet. We just threw our pet plus away..I would try airspeed if you're going to stick with Eureka.

answer 2
I work for Eureka, and the hose on the model 8863 Plus Pet reaches up to 8 feet, up to 10 feet when you add the on the onboard wand and crevice tool. Both this vacuum and the AirSpeed work very well at removing pet hair from carpeting, stairs, and upholstery. The advantage of this vacuum is the on/off brush roll, which prevents scattering of debris on hard surface floors. This unit also has soft touch EZ-roll wheels for delicate hard surface floors, a telescopic self cleaning duster, and an odor eliminating sealed HEPA system.

I work for Eureka, and would recommend the Pet Lover model 8863AVZ since you want to clean hardwood floors. The Pet Lover has soft rubberized wheels and an on/off brush roll for cleaning hard floors. The AirSpeed does not have these features.

There are two Switches one turns on the Vacum and the other turns on the brushes, if the belt is broke there should be a part number on it.

answer 2
I work for Eureka and this belt can be ordered directly from Eureka at 800-282-2886. However, before ordering a belt let me call your attention to a push button on the side of the nozzle. This unit uses a long life automotive style belt that does not require frequent changes. If something obstructs the brush roll it will trip a safety breaker shutting the brush roll off and an orange light comes on by the reset switch. If this happens, unplug the vacuum and clear the obstruction from the brush roll. Then plug the vacuum back into the power outlet turn both the power switch and the brush roll switch to the on position and then press the reset switch on the side of the nozzle. The brush roll will not come on until you tip the handle back in the operating position. This is so the brush roll stops when you are using the above the floor tools.

You can try cleaning them but they recommend replacement every 6 months I believe. I think they are about $20-$30.

answer 2
I work for Eureka and the dust cup filter, style "DCF-21" is washable. We suggest you hand wash using a mild dish or laundry detergent, rinse thoroughly to remove all soap, and let dry for at least 24 hours until completely dry. Do not use a scrub brush as this could damage the filter. The HEPA filter style "HF-10" is the final filter before the air passes back into the room. It is not washable and needs to be replaced with an Arm & Hammer or Genuine Eureka filter in order to maintain the vacuum cleaner’s sealed HEPA filtration system.

I have the 8853 and from what I can tell is the number of filters and the dust cup opens the opposite way,so not too much difference from what I can tell.But the number of filters takes the cake with me there are 3 more than the other,hope this helps somewhat.

I work for Eureka and this indicator light illuminates when the brush roll becomes jammed by an object or cord so that you know your cleaning performance will be decreased. When this happens you can unplug the vacuum from the electrical outlet, clear the obstruction, and then reset the brush roll motor by pressing the reset switch on the side of the nozzle. This feature prevents the belt from breaking and needing replacement.
