Question about Dirt Devil 12 Amp HEPA Filter Vacuum Vacuum

Attachment hose has no suction

My Dirt Devil Swivel Vision Model # 086915, which is about 8 years old, lost all suction. My husband took some of it apart and now at least the roller part has suction, but the attachment part has none. We've replaced filters and cleaned it.

    There is no suction on the roller or on the hose. I used it last week, cleaned it, the parts are all in place and there is no suction

    troubleshooting there is no suction on both floor part and the hose. I don't have the owners manual to even know where are the parts that are named in the solutions.

Sometimes when you take them apart and
reassemble the vac (the plastic slide doesn't
make full contact with the lever,or it isn;t on
the lever at all) that switches
from the floor to the attachment. IF Tthere
are no clogs in the duct then that the
most likely problem

    clogged to the chute that connects
    to the hose. theres a clog in there

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.

The dirt devil vision wide glide Model 086700W appears to have no suction. I have cleaned the hoses and filter and still there is nothing being picked up. Also, I have checked the belt.


there must be a blockage after the hose, check where the hose plugs into the vacuum. make sure unit is un plugged for safety
