My dirt devil featherlite vacuum cleaner

I have a 6-year old dirt devil vacuum cleaner and I can't figure out how to lower the rotating heads to get it closer to the ground. Am I crazy - I can find anything on the vacuum that will let me do this!

Hi there! Below are steps to replacing the belt on your vacuum. I have also included a link to the instruction manual which has illustrations if needed.


1. Lay cleaner flat and flip cleaner to expose nozzle base. Base should lay flat and face up. To remove nozzle guard, use Phillips screwdriver to remove the four (4) screws. Arrows show location of screws.
2. Lift nozzle guard off.
3. Slide belt off motor shaft.
4. Lift and remove brushroll. Dispose of old belt.
5. Place new belt in area of brushroll without bristles.
6. Slide belt onto motorshaft.
7. With new belt in place, pull and slide brushroll into nozzle making sure that the brushroll end caps are in the correct orientation. Rotate brushroll manually to make sure belt is properly aligned.
8. Reattach nozzle guard.
9. Secure by aligning the three (3) tabs in the base slots. Be sure to replace all four (4) screws.

Rough motor noise


How old is the sweeper? If it is 5-10 years old the motor is probably wearing out and would need it's bearings replaced. You can replace the whole sweeper for less.

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

I have a dirt devil featherlite carpet shampooer. It has been a great one for about five years without any problems. I need to know if anyone knows where I can find the replacement filters?


Hi There,

We actually do carry the foam filter for your Dirt Devil Featherlite (also manufactured as the Easy Steamer) carpet cleaner.

According to the Dirt Devil parts diagram for the CE6000, your machine takes the following foam filter. Here's a direct link to the filter on our website:
Dirt Devil Featherlite, Easy Steamer Foam Filter Part# 1-700750-600

Here's a link for the parts diagram for your Dirt Devil Featherlite CE6000 carpet cleaner. This will give you all of the part numbers, and drawings for each part on your machine should need any further parts:

I hope this helped. If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to use the comment field here on the repair page to contact me, I'm always happy to answer any follow up questions.

If you found this repair helpful, please be so kind and rate the repair helpful and / or leave feedback for me. Thanks so much!
