I have a dirt devil featherlite bagless vacuum; model #088600. It has suction through the hose but not through the floor mode. I think there is a blockage in the hose area but cannot seem to take it apart...

there are 3 screws 2 on the left side behind the hose and 1 on the right back by the wheel.that will take the cover off.if you need to get into the bottom there is a screw on the bottom plate in the area where it looks like the belt the brush roller turning if not then your belt is probably broke.before you replace the belt clean off the motor shaft and get the old rubber off it otherwise the new belt won't last long.please leave feedback .be sure to clean your filter inside the dirt cup

Changing a vaccum belt

Most of the Dirt Devils, turn the vac. over, remove the bottom plate, then you can get to the belt and brush roll. If the bottom plate doesn't come off, then from the top, there will be 2 or 3 screws to remove, then the top cover comes off to reveal the belt and brush roll.
