take off the bottom like you are replacing the belt. You will find a little metal clip that controls the upright lock.  It may be lose or broken.

You might unhook the belt, if it still sounds real loud, then the motor is bad and will have to replaced.

SOURCE: Dirt Devil Featherlite - how to remove the beater bar to clean

If you lay it down and look under the base- by the brush roll- there are three screws you have to remove w/ a philips head screwdriver to get the base plate off. From there you can take out the brush roll, etc.

SOURCE: twirly thing under the vacuum has stopped spinning

there is a belt that drives the beater brush. flip the unit over, you can remove the bottom cover by removing a couple of screws. to one side of the brush you will see a channel where the belt should be. go to you local walmart, sears or hardware store and in the vaccume section they will have belts, on each bag of belts will be a list of vaccumes that belt fits simply find yours. with the new belt simply lift the beater brush out at the belt channel side and install the belt around motor shaft and brush. then place brush back in place , be suer brush guides are in properly. this should do ya.

How do i remove flexible hose?


It unscrews from the body of the vacuum on most units. Athough a few have a collar nut on the inside of the unit that you can get to by removing the screws on the base of the unit removing the plate and beater bar to reach.

I have a Dirt Devil Reaction D2 Dual cyclonic Technology upright vacuum. The power head (beater bar) will not turn. The belt is fine and on tight. The bar turns freely when I turn it manually. I have...


Hi,

If the belt does not turn, perhaps you have it on too tight? Just a thought.

Check to see if you can turn the belt by hand. Look for any debris that might be caught in the belt mechanisms. If nothing like these things are the problem, it could be in the drive mechanisms.

Here is a website for your model with a parts breakdown: http://www.dirtdevil.com/manuals/?id=fb85c19d-2fbf-47bc-b8f6-ddc128067314

I hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a vote. Thanks,

Beater bar not spinning


Invest $20 in a replacement (see Amazon.com et alia); Dirt Devil beater bars have sorta-sealed bearings that burn out once wear puts enough particles in the works, and you'd have to replace and reseal bearings in there if you did get it open yourself.

Beater bar in my dirt devil vision wobbles around the center shaft. Took of beater bar and it sounds like sand in it when shaken. Can this be disassembled?


from your description, if your beater bar was wobblying, ther may be more damage to the base of the vac than initially seen. Dirt Devil has different number of warranties in number of years for thier vacuums. I would check with your nearest dealer. Lookup at dirtdevil.com

HOW DO YOU CHANGE THE BELT ON A DIRT DEVIL VISION VACUUM CLEANER?


With the vacuum unplugged, turn the machine beater bar side up. Locate the clips or screws that hold the plate over the beater bar and remove the plate. The beater bar sits in sockets just inside. Be careful in removing it; take your time and note how it comes out...this will make reassembly easier. Clean the debris while you have tha bar off and remove any debris thet you see in the vacuum hose area behind the bar....The new belt slips over the motor shaft behind the beater bar (further up in the cavity behind the b/b), then you slip it back onto the beater bar as you place the bar back nto the sockets. Test your work by revolving the bar a bit to make sure that everything is back in place. Replace the plate.
Regards,

Dirt Devil Purpose for Pets won't ****!!!!


The filters will need cleaning. Make sure the entire cone filter has been gently brushed getting rid of all dust. Also check in the main dust channel where the beater bar is. It may well be clogged and best to check the hose too.
