How to maintain dirt devil floor keeper vacuum


Hi, I really use the same vaccum and I'm very fussy! What I like to do is read pictures that came with it so you get familiar with it. There are only 4 or 5 parts that you need to take apart to keep it working like the day you bought it. They do unscrew, and you can see the build up every time you vaccum. Like I said I'm fussy, you can clean it, take it apart every 4th time you use it, but watch the build up, I get a lot from my large carpet. My hole house is carpeting, and dust is always on it, where it comes from, I don't know ! So try it out, and let me know how the pictures in the book help, its very simple, watch and see. By the way its a popular machine, I love mine, nice and light ! Good Day, Frank !

Screen display on iPad 2 changed to blue background with slight flickering. This happened while using - it did not drop. Reset has not solved problem.


Turn it over on your lap or on something soft like couch or carpet. Karate it chop it on the apple logo. Start softly and keep using more force. Folks have even used a hammer to do this but I don't advise it. You can also drop it face down on carpeted floor. Your ipad is likely stunned and needs to be stunned again to return to normal.
