Question about Bosch 12-Amp Formula Canister Vacuum with Hepa Filtration Bagged Vacuum

1 Answer

Dirt Devil M082475 12 AMP cannister vacuum power-head problem

I've narrowed the problem down to the power line that runs from the cannister to the power head (through the main hose). If I plug the power-head directly into the cannister it works.

There is no continuity in the black wire of this power line (white wire is fine) that runs through the hose, I cannot see any kind of fuse to replace in either end of this black line. Any idea if there is a fuse for this line or would my problem be with the 2-prong plug that plugs into the cannister? It looks to have taken some abuse (slightly bent prongs) but it doesn't look bad enough to not work at all. I was hoping to see a fuse to replace somewhere but can't see one.

Do vacuums like this usually have an hidden in-line fuse?

Thanks

Brush roller won't turn


Hey, this is Jeremy with Crucial Vacuum,

There are 2 potential reasons as to why your Dirt Devil AccuCharge roller brush is not working:

1) The roller brush may be blocked by debris that was picked up by the vacuum. To remove the blockage, switch your vacuum 'OFF' and unplug before proceeding. Then, lay the vacuum down and try to remove anything that is lodged in the roller brush.

2) If the vacuum cleaner brush is not spinning the belt might be broken, stretched out too much, or might have fallen off. Check the belt and replace if needed.

My Dirt Devil Envision #086710 is not picking up. Hoses clear, new belt, brush cleaned of hair etc. Air leaking from the place where the cord comes out of the vacuum at the bottom is this normal?


Sounds like you may have a hole in a hose somewhere. Check the internal hoses and make sure they are connected correctly. Check that your cannister is locked in. This may be preventiing suction also.

Dirt Devil Dual Cyclone - low suction, can't find clog, trying to take apart


Hi There
After the extensive checks you have carried out. May I respectfully suggest you check all your air filters, as a 'clogged up ' filter will produce the same kind of symptons as a blocked pipe. There is a very strong possibility that a filter on the machine is clogged and that's what is casing your problem

Assuming that you've tried a different electrical outlet, it may have a defective charger or a totally dead rechargeable battery.

I have a Dirt Devil Jaguar bagless vacuum. It used to work great. Now, it is blowing a huge amount of dust out of the front of the machine as I try to vacuum the carpet. can this be remedied?


This generally happens if the hose system is clogged. No suction so the power head brush just kicks out the dirt and debris you're trying to pick up, and loose stuff that is currently in the hose system. If it has been doing this for quite a while, or has been used with blockage, the motor has to work harder and will eventually burn out, if there is no overheat shut of switch in the cleaner.
Check all parts of the hose system, from the power head to the tank. Clear all clogs. That should take care of the problem.
Another possibility is that the fan blades are broken or worn down. This would result in no suction even though the motor is running.

Turns on but does not want pick up anything.Suction is good but the garbage does not go into cannister.


The reason it is not picking up is because the belt is stretched or worn. You simply need to replace the belt. you can get belts here:

your motor in the vacum is getting hot.Thats why it shuts off.Its fitted with a shut off switch to stop you doing any damage to it.1 The reason for getting to hot is that you are filling the cannister to full.Try emptying it half.good luck.
