As I looked at my Eureka cordless vacuum, I realized it wouldn’t charge. Frustration washed over me, knowing I couldn’t rely on it for a quick cleaning anymore.
With dirt piling up around my home, I made it my mission to find a way to bring my trusty vacuum back to life.
I researched online and, after a few hours, got it charging back perfectly. In this article, I’ll explain why your Eureka vac is not charging & how you can fix it.
Let’s get started!
How to Fix Eureka Cordless Vacuum Not Charging
You should try these possible solutions to resolve your Eureka vacuum charging issue.
#1. Check Electric Outlet
When your Eureka cordless vacuum cleaner isn’t charging, you should ensure the wall/ power outlet works perfectly.
The wall outlet that you are using to charge your vacuum cleaner must work correctly and provide sufficient current.
You can test the power socket using another electronic device, such as a lamp. You can plug the lamp into the outlet and check if it lights up.
If the lamp isn’t lighting up, your power socket is faulty and needs to be checked/ fixed by an expert person.
Once you’ve found the reason for your vacuum cleaner to not charge, plug it into another power socket.
#2. Check Charging Dock or Adapter
If the power socket isn’t the reason for your Eureka vacuum cleaner charging issue, you should inspect the charging adapter/ dock to resolve the problem.
If the charging adapter is working, you might see an indicator light flashing or illumining on the charging dock or adapter.
If your AC charging adapter doesn’t have an indicator light, you can test this charger with another vacuum cleaner.
If it is possible, you can also try charging your Eureka cordless vacuum with another compatible charging dock.
#3. Clean Charging Pins
Another common reason for your vacuum not charging is the vacuum cleaner’s dirty charging pins and charging stand.
So, you should remove the dust/ debris or other foreign particles from the charging dock/ stand using a clean and dry piece of cloth.
You can also use rubbing alcohol or cotton swabs to clean the charging pins completely. After cleaning, plug the vac back into the outlet and check if it works.
#4. Replace Battery
In the end, your vacuum cleaner has a battery to work just like any other electric device, laptop, mobile or smartwatch.
And this vacuum cleaner battery has an expectancy; if the vacuum is more than 10 years older, the battery might be dead.
In case the battery will not hold the charger after plugging in for a few hours. So, you should check the battery and replace it with a new one.
#5. Contact Customer Support
If you’ve tried all the above solutions, but the vacuum is still not charging, you should carefully inspect the device to ensure it isn’t damaged.
In case you should get it checked by an expert or contact the Eureka customer support team for further assistance.
The customer support team will look deeply into this situation and provide a few possible solutions.
