Why doesn't my dirt devil vision turbo have any suction through the hose yet there's good suction at the hose connection to the canister?


The hose is probably blocked. If possible reverse it (put the intake of the hose on the canister connection) that should suck out the obstruction. If that fails try to carefully push a broom handle into the hose, preferably from the end that connects to the canister. Put the hose back on normally and see what happens.

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.

Won't turn on


change the switch with a brand new one and that will fix the problem the switch has gone out on another dirt devil vacuum and that is so common it is hard to explain it is a defect in the way the switches are made

Our Dirt Devil D2 bottom has no suction


I would check the bottom of the unit to see if there is any blockage. I don't know if this unit has a switch that you set to switch from hose to floor. If so I would set it to floor and see if there is any suction in the hose, indicating a switching problem. If there is no suction in the hose, I would still check the bottom of the unit and disassemble it as much as you feel comfortable to see if you can see any blockage. Good luck!

Dirt Devil Swivel Glide Platinum vacuum suction problem


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.

No Wind Coming Out of Dirt Devil


The suction hole will never have wind coming out of it, it is for suction. To switch from floor to hose, turn the control knob labeled floor / hose.

Dirt Devil Vibe No Suction


Sounds like there is a clog somwhere. Check the hose - you can undo the hose with a screwdriver but because of that bend use a pipe cleaner or a long wire to see if there is anything blocking the tube. Next check the dirt channels from the bottom of the hose on the Dirt Devil Vibe once the hose has been taken off. Check that the bottom part is clear and then tip the machine over, remove the bottom sole plate (4 screws, 2 at the front and 2 at the back near the rear wheels) to check the roller brush - sometimes if there is an obstruction in the dirt channel from the roller brush suction will not get through.

Dont forget however that there are two filters on the Dirt Devil Vibe. The top filter has to be unscrewed and then unlocked. Tap it a couple of times to dislodge any dirt and then lift out the second part filter at the top of the bin.

Dont forget to rate if this advice works. Thanks.

Dirt devil mvp not sucking


Could be bad filters, is there suction at the end of the hose. That will tell you which direction to start looking. If no suction at hose end, then filters could be the problem. If you have suction, then the problem is down lower, dirt inlet is clogged, if belt has never been changed, then I am sure it has stretch to the point that under load it doesn't turn like it should. Could even be that although the motor is running, it may be running at a slower speed, in which case it would have to be replaced.
