Eureka the boss vacuum - This vacuum is horrible. You turn it on, it screams so loud with a shrill high-pitched sound. I will be totally deaf by the time I use this horrible machine so I want my money back. I really don't think they should be in stores for people to buy or you will be buying hearing aids. I want to know where I can return this vacuum and get my money back. I am very serious. Take time to answer this right away. I bought it at our local Bi Mart in Lebanon, Oregon. Send them a letter to confirm my return of this horrible vacuum right away and please send me a copy or email so Bi Mart can return this horrible vacuum to the company. I just want my money back.
My aqua guard NF is not working. It’s completely shut down from past one month and I am trying to call service people but they are not responding. Once a service man came and inspected and told that my machine’s adapter is not working. So he took away the adapter and returned around after two days. The machine worked for mere 2 hours and again got shut down. Therefore, first I called the serviceman and he told me “Who gave you my number and don’t call and disturb me. Call service center.” He was rude like hell. Anyway, I called up service center and reported about the problem. The phone was picked by some Mr. ** and he told what can I do and hang up.
Now I am in trouble as the water which comes at my home not at all fit for drinking and I have small kids at home. Their health is a big issue because of these people. Every day, I have to beg water from my neighbors. Therefore, I have come to a conclusion that I pay Eureka Forbes a hefty amount and then beg for water. Please resolve my problem.
I purchased a vacuum cleaner in Feb 2011, used for approximately two weeks. The motor in vacuum seemed to be "whining", almost as if it was extremely strained. My husband took the bottom off and looked to see if it was clogged and/or belt was broken. None of those were the case. I called the number on the paper and got a customer service rep. They told me they would send the "call tag" and that once it is received, it would take approximately 4-6 weeks for repair.
When call tag got here, I sent it through FedEx, which cost me an additional $25 on top of the $80 for the vacuum. I have since called the customer service "helpline" approximately 4 times. Each time, I was told that I would be called back. Each time, I was NEVER called back. When I would call and explain the problem, and the fact that my call was never returned, it was always the same line: "I am so sorry you have had that problem" and then proceed to put me on hold while they supposedly check with the service center as to the status of what happened to my vacuum cleaner.
On the 28th of July, an email was sent to the service center and as of August 1st, there was no response to the alleged email. On my last phone call on August 1st, I was told that this was being sent to the escalation department; That a supervisor would find out what was going on and the rep I was talking to would be back with me in the next day or so. Two days later, I am still waiting on that call back. Hence the reason I am here. I am tired of getting the same response and no courtesy call backs.
I would like to make the manufacturer know of the dangers of the Eureka The Boss upright vacuum cleaner. This morning, while vacuuming my area at work, I bent over to pick something up off the floor and got my hair caught in the rollers of the vacuum. My fellow workers came to my rescue, but were unable to snap off the roller since it has to be unscrewed. The result was that I lost six inches of my hair, which I feel would have been a lot less if we would have been able to just snap off the roller and unwind my hair from the roller. If this could happen to me, just think what could happen to a child. I know that others make vacuum cleaners that have rollers which snap off. I realized that this was a freak accident, but I think the manufacturer should take this into consideration and change the way they put the roller onto the vacuum cleaner. There should be some kind of a button that would automatically allow its removal from the vacuum.
I bought a Eureka, The Boss Smart Vac about 1 and 1/2 years ago because it has a Power Paw to clean pet hair from furniture. The Power Paw stopped working in less than 2 months. The vacuum uses RR bags,that slip in through the top. The bag often times comes off, leaving the inside full of dirt & amp; dust(what a mess to clean). This vacuum is a definite no buy.

I bought a Eureka Capture + at Sam's Club in San Angelo, Texas and used it three times and it fell apart. I bought a regular Eureka Pet and Pal at Wal-Mart in Brady. I have used it not more than 10 times and it started smoking. Now I cannot find a place to send either of them. Thank you.
Just want all to know that the so-called bagless, "great for pets" vacuum is not worth the purchase. It clogs, dust flies everywhere, and it is harmful to breathe in the dust when cleaning it. It is crap. I will be returning to Hoover with bags. Vacuum is on the roadside with a free sign on it.
I previously complained about Eureka’s vacuum cleaners and problems with the roller-brush and belt assembly. Eureka sent a replacement (no cost) and it has worked great ever since. The bearings must have been defective. I would highly recommend this vacuum.
They quickly responded to a question I had regarding the wheels falling off of my vacuum. They said they would send a replacement part and I have never heard from them since and they have totally ignored any inquiry emails since.
Here is their initial response dated 4/2/09: "Thank you for your email to Eureka Consumer Relations. Because the wheels are not replaceable on your machine, we will be happy to assist you further by replacing the bottom nozzle; however, we will need some additional information. Please reply to this message with the following information: name, address, telephone number, model number, type, and serial number. We require this information to send you a replacement part. We appreciate your assistance in obtaining this information and look forward to your reply."
It is now 4/24 and they have totally ignored over three emails I have sent regarding the status.
They were running a promotion on their website. The website kept locking up and not working properly. I was trying to make a reservation for three. Somehow one on the screens that had locked up, which was for 2 tickets, finally kicked in and started working and went through. I needed three. I tried to get a 3rd one and it wouldn’t take. I tried calling customer service - it would hang up on you. I waited till the next day and tried to talk to 2 people. First girl, it hung up on me as she was helping me. The second took my info and said someone would call me - they never did. The reservation that went through had trip protection type of stuff on it, and when the girl told me I could make the 3rd reservation for the same price, I thought I would have them remove the trip protection because I wouldn't need it. Well, she disconnected me just in time to not help me but with enough time to remove the trip protection, and now they want to charge me almost 10 times the price of the ticket to cancel.
I tried talking to someone again, and they are the hardest to get a hold of to speak with. Published phone numbers are disconnected for their corporate office. I finally got a number that was good, and the girl in customer relations said she couldn't help me. I tried the 800 number again (like she told me) to talk to a supervisor, and I got a rep that yelled at me and questioned me on how I knew that their customer service agents worked from home. He told me that my request was denied and I could not have a refund. I was trying to be a good customer. All I wanted was 3 tickets so my family could enjoy a nice trip, and now I've been jilted.
There has been emotional damage since I have had the runaround from what is supposed to be customer service agents. After the last guy I talked to yelled at me, it brought me to tears. And I have spent a lot of time and energy trying to resolve this. Plus I'm going to lose out on the $130 for the tickets because I cannot travel without my child. All of this for $130, which is nothing to a company like Allegiant Air. You'd think that my customer loyalty would be more important to them and they would make the adjustment since it was their website/phone lines that were having problems in order to want to keep my business in the future, but I guess no.
I am trying to get a credit of $144.60 charged to my card for traveling that now will not be possible because they are out of business from Worcester Airport.
I was had a problem at work and decided not to use my flight #1006913 so I canceled the flight. They charged me 200.00 dollars to "cancel" the flight. One hour later I reconciled the problem I was having, and my wife tried to reinstate the tickets they told her we could not do that we would have to re book and the flight was 300.00 dollars more she then told them to forget it and we want the money put back on the credit card they told us no. It was going to be put on credit Why even have a cancelation fee if the money cannot be returned which the representative never told me, she asked if I wanted to change or cancel my flight I asked if the fees were different she said no. My wife hung up. I called the following day on 8/31/05. I called to talk to a representative about the situation. Her name was Chamille I started to tell her about the situation and she became very defensive, instead of getting into a screaming match I asked for a customer service number she then Hung up on me. I needed to go to Oklahoma so I went online to book my flight with the same company even with how bad they treated me already. I was online trying to use the credit the airline told me I had and went through the motions. Nowhere did it ask for a confirmation number or tell you if you have a credit you need to call in. So now I had purchased new tickets at the new price and not able to use my credit. So I then called back in and sat on hold for another 30 minutes. I happend to get the same lady Chamille. I told her I would like to use my credit on the new flight. She told me I had already booked my flight I couldn't use it I need to call in and started becoming very rude again I asked her for the number to customer service and she continued to hang up on me, for the second time. Imediately I called American Express and disputed the charges. I own my own business and understand that some customers can be ignorant and can be very rude, that is why I try and be cordial when handling problems. But to hang up on me twice when I ask for customer service number, not explain what the difference between cancelation and changes and treat me horribly. That's not right. please let me know what we can do. thank you
