Question about Dirt Devil SwivelGlide Bagged Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

The Dirt Devil 085850 doesn't pick up anything!

I just bought a Dirt Devil 085850 Featherlite Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner. Instead of sucking up dust and dirt, it blows it forward. Nothing gets trapped in the canister. The manual is no help. I called DD customer service and got no answer and can't leave a message. I ordered the vacuum online and can't easily return it. Please help!

Vacuum doesn't pick-up dirt


It's probably not picking up because the belt is worn and stretched. With a new belt it will pick up a lot better. Here is the belts you need:
