The height adjuster may have failed. Best to turn the machine upside down and check operation.

Dirt devil breeze bagless height adjustment mafunction


Hi there! If your vacuum is suddenly hard to push your roller lifter assembly, which controls the automatic height adjustment, may be damaged or broken. Check your roller lifter assembly located underneath your unit for damages. Also, your brushes help to maneuver through carpet, check that your brushes are still spinning. If not, replace the belt on your vacuum. I have included a link where you may visit to purchase a replacement belt for your vacuum. Hope this helps!

How to fix wheels that raise and lower the beater bar


Hello! The M085845 has an automatic height adjustment that cannot be manually changed. There is a roller lifter assembly that helps to raise and lower the nozzle depending on whether the vacuum is in the upright or reclined position. You do not have to make any adjustments to the vacuum when going from carpet to hard floors. The brushes will continue to spin at all times when the vacuum is in use. Hope this helps!

Dirt devil platinum force no longer pushes easily


Hi there! If your vacuum is suddenly hard to push this could be an indication that your belt that controls your brushes has broken. The brush roll helps to maneuver through carpet. Check that the brushes are still spinning. If the brushes are not spinning you will need to take the vacuum in to a Dirt Devil authorized service center to have the belt replaced.

There are also two small wheels underneath the vacuum that controls the automatic height adjustment. Inspect the height adjustment cam, shaft and wheels for damages.

Below is a link where you may go to locate the nearest service center to you. Hope this was helpful! If you require further assistance feel free to reach out to us here on Fixya, Facebook.com/dirtdevil or Twitter @DirtDevil.

Belt slips off motorshaft


It could be an old belt even if the upright is new. Check that the beater bar is not clogged with dust or threads and find a replacement belt for this vacuum and fit it to see if there is any difference. If not, then there's a problem with the vac and it should be returned.

Check the brush roll, are the bristles worn down? Check the belt also, if it is stretched, then it won't drive the brush roll like it should.
