Dirt Devil vacuum Release pedal not working

We have a Dirt Devil bagless vacuum cleaner. To lower the upright handle, we had to press a pedal on the righ hand side of the bottom part. It would make a small "click" sound and the handle would lower to the back. Recently, a sock got stuck in the beater bar and after I pulled it out, the handle won't stay upright. It seems that the pedal won't lock it up any more. Any idea how to fix it? We'd appreciate any suggestions. The Guys

Take off the bottom like you are replacing the belt. You will find a little metal clip that controls the upright lock.  It may be lose or broken.

How do i use the hose on featherlite bagless


Hello! To use the hose on your Featherlight follow these simple steps below.

· Cleaner must be in its upright position. Remove lower hose from the side of the cleaner by twisting to the right and then pull off.
· Remove the hose from the tool caddy.
· Slide the tool hose into the lower dirt hose with the notch facing up. Push together and twist to secure.
· Choose any of the handy accessories or use the hose alone. Simply push the attachment firmly onto the end of the wand or hose handle. To remove tool, twist and pull apart gently.

I have also included a link to the instruction manual if needed. Hope this was helpful!

Where is the release button so you dont have to vacum the floor with it standing straight up


There isn't one. Just pull the handle back and if needed gently put your foot on the front of the vac.

Hi, pressing the big red foot button on the dc25 lowers the cleaner to the working position,but it wont stand up again. would appreciate some help. thanks. TC


sounds like the ball cradle is worn out, the springs are too stretched to pull the handle release pedal back into place. you can do one of two things, replace the cradle assy, or just lift the red pedal up when you raise the handle

How do I repalce the belt on Dirt Devil Swivel Glide upright vac?


Four screws hold the bottom plate in place. Turn the vac upside down and remove the screws that hold the cover(bottom plate) over the brush roll in place. Remove the plate and you are there.

Dirt Devil upright vac


It could be a broken handle release, but it also could be the the clamps where the handle asm, and the base hold together came use, this will cause this problem on some Dirt Devils. The top has to come off to check this out.
