Dirt devil swivel glide - no suction

I have a dirt devil swivel glide vaccum cleaner. It is not able to pick up anything from the carpet. There is no suction in the hose as well.

This problem started after the bag got full. I replaced the bag, cleaned the suction hose at the bottom. But still it not able to pick up anything from the floor.

Dirt Devil upright has too much suction.


In a world where most people wish their cleaners had more suction, yours is a rare complaint indeed. Upright cleaners in particular are complaint-worthy as they soon tend to lose suction. It would be good to read more about the reason for your complaint?

Ideally an upright will have enough suction to lift the carpet from the floor a few mm and trap it against the mouth of the brush housing so air can be drawn through the carpet helping to lift out dirt so the brush can work more efficiently. An upright that is working correctly is much harder to push along and as they age they tend to be easier to push as they lose efficiency.

Most cleaners are fitted with at least one filter and they do rob them of suction. Some people remove the filters to improve the suction. Perhaps your cleaner has one or more filters missing.

Cleaner is not picking up debris from pool bottom


Have you check the filter/baskets to make sure that you don't have a large piece of debris that is preventing suctions? You will also want to check each section on the vaccum systematically to make sure that there are not cracks or noticable areas of damage that would prevent the pool cleaner from working. Is is not moving at all or just not sucking properly? Can you give me more details as to what it, exactly, it is doing?

Dirt Devil vacuum sucks... figuratively


Well, I guess your visitors have come and gone, but the vacuum remains the same. It sounds like you have a broken or worn belt. The belt should be changed once a year (approx) and can break if something is picked up that jams the brush. It is also possible that you have something obstructing the vacuum inlet at the brush housing.
If the belt is worn, it can still look o.k., but won't have the tension to turn the roller when it engages the carpet. I suspect the belt is your trouble.

Either it needs a new belt, they stretch and break, then won't turn the brush roll. The dirt inlet by the brush roll is clogged, the hose may have a clog in it, filters are bad. If the hose comes off on one end, is there suction there, is so then the clog is farther down. If no suction, then the clog is in the hose or filter.
