Question about Vacuums

Vaccuum will not pick up very much off of the floor

I put a new filter on it but my Dirt Devil Vision Wideglide still will not pick up very much off the floor. If i just use the hose it works fine. Can you help me please?

    I took all the debris off the roller and made sure it turned. I checked the bag and it was sufficiently empty. I tried the vacuum again and It wouldn't pick up hardly anything. It seems like everything is working but it really s not sucking like it used to or really at all.

You have a clog in the hose or port going from the brush's to the dirt container. You can blow these out with a compressor. Note: You must seal the end (can use your hand wrapped around it) that you put the compressor hase in. You can also use a more powerfull vacuum that has a exaust on it to do the job.

Hi I have a dirt devil vision. Hose works, but does not vacuuming the floor. Belts are not broken. Larger belt is moving, smaller belt that moves the brushes does not.


hi krueger, sorry for the problems but hers an idea how about turning on the vacuum and put your hand under the part where it sucks uo the dirt off the floor and i guessing you would have a little suction, since the brushes are not moving its going to not pick up as well as it should my guess is that the belts need to be replaced even if one is moving, i would change both belt to be sure and also are you smelling a burning smell if so then that would prove fact to needing new belts, hope this helps, Jamie

Your belt is probably worn or broken. You need to replace the belt if you haven't recently. You can get the belts you need here:

Dirt Devil vacuum sucks... figuratively


Well, I guess your visitors have come and gone, but the vacuum remains the same. It sounds like you have a broken or worn belt. The belt should be changed once a year (approx) and can break if something is picked up that jams the brush. It is also possible that you have something obstructing the vacuum inlet at the brush housing.
If the belt is worn, it can still look o.k., but won't have the tension to turn the roller when it engages the carpet. I suspect the belt is your trouble.

Dirt Devil Featherlite not picking up


It sounds like you have a blockage somewhere. The brush roll will still gather material, but if the suction is insufficient, it will spit it back out eventually. Take the bag out and check at the connection for blockage. When you are sure it's clear, put in a new bag and turn the machine on. The bag should inflate rapidly. If it does not, check elswhere for blockage.
