DIrtDevil Ultra Handheld - No Suction & Brush not moving

After opening up the dirt devil to take away all the dust & debris, I put it back together. Although the motor works great & the belt isn't broken (just a little worn and dirty), the brush brush doesn't spin and there is no hose suction doesn't work. Any tips would be helpful. thanx.

Vacuum is spewing dust out of the front vent! We have the Dirt Devil 12 amp bagless upright. Hoses are clear, brushes turn, everything fine except dirt blows OUT instead of going into canister. How

Hi! We actually don't recommend opening the motor compartment. It sounds like there may be a clog somewhere in the vacuum that you are unaware of. Please try following the steps below.

  • Remove the hose from the vacuum from both ends and check it for clogs.
  • Lay your vacuum face down, remove the bottom guard and brush-roll
  • Use a wooden spoon or something similar to help break up and remove any clogs from the lower hose.
  • Check and clean all the filters on the vacuum. If they are really dirty they may need to be replaced.

Hi! There are a few reasons why your brushes may not be spinning. Try these simple steps below.

1. Your brush roll may be clogged. Unplug the cleaner and remove any debris from brush roll.
2. Make sure the brush roll setting is turned on. The brush roll on/off switch is located on the handle of the hose.
3. Reset the brushes. The brush roll reset button is located on the back of the nozzle on the right side.

Hope this helps! If you still have questions feel free to reach out to us here on Fixya, or Twitter @DirtDevil.

When we changed the belt the new belt broke right away and the brush roller wouldn't spin. My husband cleaned off the roller and got it moving slowly again, but when we went to re-attach everythin
