I have a Dirt Devil upright. We have 4 women with long hair living and visiting us. I noticed the unit not sucking very well. I turned it upside down and found hair had wrapped itself around the belt driven brush--big-big-time! I disasembeled the brush-cleaned and cut the hair free. I noticed the hepa filter had not been replaced so I replaced it. While the rotor is removed look at the suction inlet- something might have lodged in to it.I really feel that the problem is in the lower part of the unit.

SOURCE: dirt devil mvp not sucking

These Red Devil vacuums (like the similar Hoover uprights from the 1970's) rely on the sealed rigid bag case to pull the air through the bag before it reaches the vacuum motor. Any air that leaks into the case without passing through the bag decreases the available useful suction.

As a side effect, the motor runs slower when the case isn't sealed because ironically there's more air coming in for the vacuum motor to move and its working harder. The vacuum motor spins fastest when the vacuum is sealed up and the hose is blocked and no air passes through the machine.

After my son vacuumed up maybe a lego theDiamond G Kirby started sparking from inside housing. We took brush and checked for any loose items and found none. Any ideas and can I diy?


Sucking up a Lego or similar item normally should not have done any damage to the motor. It may stop the brush roll which may burn the belt if the belt is tight. If the item got sucked into the fan it may have broken or cracked it which could seize the motor. Remove the brush roll assembly, spin the motor shaft while you inspect the fan. Fan replacement is best to be done by an experienced technician.

Can not get my steam vac to suck up water everything else works.done half floor empty water to do other half of floor and it just stopped sucking up water


  • There a twist lever on the side to change from floor to tools. If "everything else works" then you have it on tools. Twist it back to floor and it will work.

Floor level brush stopped rotating after it caught


Look at the bottom and check a thread of carpet isn't wrapped around the brush, if so try pulling it off or carefully cutting it off. You'll probably see a collection of fluff etc above the brush that's stopping it from sucking up, pull this out, or it just may be that cause the brush isn't working its not picking up.
If this helps please rate me

My Oreck XL has quit sucking. The brush turns but


Same problem here with XL9100. Bag would not expand implying no suction. Motor ran and brushes turned. Easy disassembly using common tools found that a plastic bag had been sucked up and caused a blockage prior to the impeller. Cleaned up, reassembled, and everything worked fine after that.

Hoover doesn't suck well


Did you check the inlet from the bottom? Take the bottom plate off, make sure that the tube(inlet)is free of any clogs. Also if the belt is stretched, then it won't drive the brush roll like it should, replace it part #38528033.

My dirt devil vacuum won't suck up anything and its brand new!!


Take the vac bag off and turn on the vac , it should blow air out, if not unclogg the hose where the bag connects, also when you check the roller and belt, unclog the flex hose(located inside base near roller assembly) that sucks up the dirt. As long as the motor works fine the rest is just maint.
