Question about Dirt Devil Featherlight Bagless Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Dirt devil bagless vacuum doesn't run,

To whom it may concern,

After push the on/off pedal, there is no reaction. It seems this power failure caused by a broken fuse. But how and where can I find the fuse? How to replace the fuse?
Thanks
Jerry

    Was working fine, and then just died. Thought I might have somehow tripped a GFI outlet, but that wasn't the case. Tried multiple outlets. Now it's totally dead. Clueless . . .

    Working great and then just stopped. Is there a fuse I can replace?

    Nothing happens when plugged in and turned on - no motor action - no sound - nothing... Is there a fuse or reset button?

Unplug the vacuum and try tu turn the brush roller by hand a few turns .plug it back in and try it again.if not try another plug in the house.you might have a bad connection at the motor or the motor itself is bad

Dust will blow out of the front vent of my Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagless Vacuum. It seems to be shooting out dust that I just vacuum up, but I can't be certain.


Dust blows out of the filter vent is usually caused by a plugged filter drop the filter door on the back, replace or for a temporary fix blow out the filter

The Dirt Devil Featherlite vacuum cleaner throws up the dirt back out. Sometimes the vacuum cleaner doesn't pick up any dirt


You have a blocked vacuum hose take hose off and out side. Push the garden hose from one end to the other, this will push out the blockage

No clogs, work fine, but makes a very loud wailing sound? what could it be?


My Dirt devil Reaction does the same thing. So I took apart the motor and it was crammed w/ dirt then I decided to clean it out. next time I vacuumed my house it was a lot quieter. The guy from Jones sew and vac said baggless vacuum filters most of the time fail and let dirt get in the motor and start to scream. I read a lot of things saying Dirt devil Reaction is the most common vacuum to get dirt in the motor and start to wail then get worse & worse and get to the point where they start to almost scream. P.S if you let it scream for along time of use it will give the motor permanent damage and you will smell electrical burning, if that happens it will be too late so you will half to buy a new machine. To get to the motor you can take the dust contaner off and take the black filter then use your down stairs vacuum and get a small attachament and stick it in and vacuum it out,if not have two vacuums borrow one. If that doesn't clean it out you will need to take all the plastic appart and realy get to the motor good. If my advice dosn't help it is ok to still use it, it will just be loud until the motor of it is totally fried. This should work it worked on my Dirt devil Reaction. I'm sorry if it doesn't work out. :D

You probably have a clog either in the hose , wands, or the dirt inlet by the brush roll.

Any warranty dealer for Dirt Devil should be able to supply a schematic for that machine. They have access to the dealer web site and can download the information.

Dirt Devil vacuum Release pedal not working


take off the bottom like you are replacing the belt. You will find a little metal clip that controls the upright lock.  It may be lose or broken.
