Question about Dirt Devil Total Pet Upright Vacuum, UD40350

Open Question

Hose won't ****

The hose will **** a little air through it, but it won't pick anything up. It worked just fine when we first bought it, and the floor part still works fine though.

Why does my eureka air speed vacuum not work when in floor mode?


There is an adjustment for carpet and for hard surfaces. Have switched it from carpet to a hard surface. When on carpet it sets up higher on a hard surface it should set lower. If it is to low it work properly either.

Hose tool won't pick up, sweeps floor ok


No blocks in the hose? Compress it and run a coat hanger through it.

Vacuum brushes are turning but not picking up dirt and is blowing a lot of air out of the top air filter thing


Did you check carefully for splits? After sucking something up that big, you may have split something, like in a fold of the hose. When it is in a position where the split is somewhat sealed, it works. Move it just a bit and the split separates and it won't work.

My Miele S3141 canister began acting strange this morning. No suction...so I took off the hose and checked for blockage, (nothing). Now I can't get the hose back on the canister. It just slips ar


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Air filter:
If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up dirt and has no suction the air filter might be clogged. Remove the filter and either clean or replace it as needed.
Exhaust Filter If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the exhaust filter might be clogged. Remove and clean the filter, replace it if its torn or damaged.


Vacuum Hose If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the vacuum hose might be clogged. Remove the hose from the vacuum cleaner, stretch it out straight, shine a bright flashlight in one end and try to see light through it. If no light can be seen, use something to run through the hose and free up the obstruction.
Vacuum Bag If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the vacuum bag might be full. Clean or replace the bag as recommended by the manufacturer.

Dust Cup AssemblyIf the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the dust cup assembly might not be installed tightly, or it might be cracked or broken. The dust cup must seal tightly in order to produce the right amount of suction. If it is cracked or broken, replace it. Most glues and adhesives will not successfully seal the crack.
Blower Wheel If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and there is no suction, the blower wheel might be jammed or broken. Check the blower wheel to be certain it turns freely. If it doesn't, check to see if there is anything rubbing against it. If not, but it's hard to turn, the motor is most likely the problem.

No suction no blockages was working fine


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you've had difficulty with your DC18. If your machine isn't picking up as well as it should be, there may be a blockage in the machine. If you haven't been able to locate one in the cleaner head or internal hose, I'd encourage you to get in touch with us directly for further assistance.

You can reach us on 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 0800 298 0298 (UK). Please have the machine to hand when you call so one of our advisors can run through some checks over the phone with you.

We'll look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,

Jack

NO SUCTION COMING FROM BOTTOM OF VACUUM


even though the belt isnt broken you should replace it also make sure the height is raised up on the nozzle. try dropping a marble through the hose to double check there is nothing stuck ( the attachment hose and the small hose that runs to the floor )

Willnt pick up good...


I had this problem once too. When the hose is inserted into the vacuum, the floor unit (where the spinning brushes are) becomes the head of the vacuum. In other words, the suction goes through the floor part and then up through the hose and into the vacuum. If the suction is good when the hose is out, the the problem is blockage at the bottom piece. Take the cover off of the rollers (it is one screw then it pops right off) and see if there is a bunch of lint/hair/gunk blocking the suction hole. You could also take the hose part out of the vacuum and look down the empty shaft with a flashlight and see if you see anything there. Hope this helps!

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.
