SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: I have a dirt devil featherlite bagless vacuum;

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 travels.is 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

SOURCE: No suction on floor part

From your problem description, you may have a blockage in the foot. Check the intake under the vac by the roller.

Look for a clog of pet debris right at the intake to the container. It may not be visible unless the container is removed.

How do you turn off the hose suction when using the floor vacuum?


Hi! There is no way to reduce the suction in the vacuum. The hose should be assembled on both ends when using the vacuum on floors. You can reduce the suction by raising the 5-level height adjustment. Hope this helps!

Nothing going into dirt canister


Is there suction at the hose? If not it is either blocked or the suction fan is broken. If there is, then there is a blockage in the pickup section, something is lodged across the channel after the brushes and before the place where the hose plugs in.

I think there is a safety switch to prevent it from running with the canister out so hard to check for suction at the top of the motor/suction fan. Make sure nothing is over that part under the canister too! If you can figure out how to bypass the safety switch (if there is one), you should have good suction where the canister sets on top of the motor base.

Thehose has no suction


remove and clean the filter. you can use a air compressor to blow it out or use a brass wire brush and tap the filter on the table until it looks nice and clean,, this will return the suction to your vacume. also at the same time as you are cleaning the filter, check the hose for any blockage ( especially down by the floor sweeper where the hose kinda bends down into the unit ) -- when a filter is dirty and the suction is not that great, dirt loves to collect and compact in this spot,, use a wire coat hanger to fish out and clean any debris.

yes your intake hose is clogged thats the clear hose you can see it on the bottom from the back.disconnect the upper hose from your intake hose and try to push a coat hanger through with the end of the coat hangers end bent till its rounded so you don't puncture the intake hose
