    The brush (or beater bar) on my unit will spin but it is very weak and only works occasionally. As soon as the unit comes into contact with the floor, the brush stops spinning. It really is a recently purchased item and we clean it after every use. To have this problem for no apparent reason is frustrating. If anyone can offer any advice, please do.

    Thanks.

SOURCE: Dirt Devil Extreme Quick Vac - Won't turn on

Check that the filters are completely clear and not blocked - especially the top filter on top of the bin assembly. If its clogged completely brush it free of dirt and then reassemble. Make sure the inner cone filter and mesh filter is also completely clean. Then check the hose and main dust channel - something is clogged that makes this machine overheat and stop working - and often with this model (Hoover also make it in the UK under the Alyx name) its down to clogged filters or small clogs of dust in the dust channels. 
Don't forget to rate, thanks.

Is the suction tubing in the head assembly clogged, is the belt broke? If the if the belt looks good the brush may be turned off and you may need to turn the brush switch on.

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.

Nothing going into dirt canister


Is there suction at the hose? If not it is either blocked or the suction fan is broken. If there is, then there is a blockage in the pickup section, something is lodged across the channel after the brushes and before the place where the hose plugs in.

I think there is a safety switch to prevent it from running with the canister out so hard to check for suction at the top of the motor/suction fan. Make sure nothing is over that part under the canister too! If you can figure out how to bypass the safety switch (if there is one), you should have good suction where the canister sets on top of the motor base.

I have a Miele STB-205-3 Turbobrush. After opening the brush cover using a quarter, I use a T-7 torx screw driver (shaped like star of David) to remove the main cover that is held by 4 screws.

There are 2 more screws holding the fan housing. After unscrewing them, you can take the whole thing apart and clean it. Make sure you clean all rotating parts as they collect a lot of hair, dust, etc,

Dirt Devil bagless upright. sucks up dirt in the front and spits it out in the back. I have taken it apart to check for visible clogs in hoses and checked belt and rollers all of which are fine. what next?


There seems to be no vacuum drawing the debris away from the brush head. Remove the debris canister to check for air blowing into it. Check particularly, the area where the brush head pivots off of the upright portion. Hope this helps!
