Durt Devil upright 12 amp Vision Vacuum Cleaner

The upper and lower hoses are not blocked.I checked them both. When I vacuum it does not have very much suction. It does not pick up dirt, nothing in canister. this is a Dirt Devil 12 amp vision, upright. I disconnected the hose to use attachments and there is not much suction. It will not even pick up lint. There is very little suction. Is there something I may be overlooking? This vacuum worked fine untill a couple of weeks ago. When the motor is running, it sounds normal.

If there no blockages in the hoses, then the next thing to check would be any filters in the vacuum. When these get clogged, you will experience this problem.

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.

Vacuum is spewing dust out of the front vent! We have the Dirt Devil 12 amp bagless upright. Hoses are clear, brushes turn, everything fine except dirt blows OUT instead of going into canister. How


Hi! We actually don't recommend opening the motor compartment. It sounds like there may be a clog somewhere in the vacuum that you are unaware of. Please try following the steps below.

  • Remove the hose from the vacuum from both ends and check it for clogs.
  • Lay your vacuum face down, remove the bottom guard and brush-roll
  • Use a wooden spoon or something similar to help break up and remove any clogs from the lower hose.
  • Check and clean all the filters on the vacuum. If they are really dirty they may need to be replaced.
Hope this helps, if not we can be reached here on Fixya, Facebook.com/dirtdevil or Twitter @DirtDevil

When I vacuum the floor dirt falls out on the floor


blockage in the hose sounds like the culprit remove the hose and inspect, push a broom stick through it while off and push a open coat hanger through the canal where the hose connects, if not the filter must be blocked

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.
