SOURCE: How do I change the

To change the belt, take off the bottom plate, the belt runs between the brush roll and the motor shaft. But if it is blowing out dust, you may have a clog in the dirt inlet by the brush roll, or in the hose.

Why is my Dirt Devil Vacuum Hose lacking suction?


I have a Dyson and was having a similar problem some time back. I found out these bagless systems still have a filter that picks up the fine dust to keep it contained. Find out where yours is located and beat the dust out of it really good or just replace it.
Hope this helps.

Dust will blow out of the front vent of my Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagless Vacuum. It seems to be shooting out dust that I just vacuum up, but I can't be certain.


Dust blows out of the filter vent is usually caused by a plugged filter drop the filter door on the back, replace or for a temporary fix blow out the filter

It is blowing dust out of the motor


If this is a bagless machine, then the problem is that the really fine dust that you are picking up from your floor is so small that it is going through the filter and dust cup and building up in your vacuum motor. When enough build up collects, then it starts to blow it out the exhaust. I would bet a paper bagged machine for the long run. They are cleaner,

The vaccum doesn't pick up dirt, it sprays out


There is probably a second or third filter (besides the canister) that needs to be cleaned.
I doubt that it's rotating the wrong direction.
