I need owners manual and belt size for my dirt devil model # UD20100 MFG A1A AJ


The manual for the Dirt Devil Cyclonic II (UD20100) is available from the manufacturer's product site: http://dirtdevil.com/products/details/ud20100/dynamite-cyclonic-ii/ . Click on the link for the manual below the Where to Buy link. The current direct link is http://dirtdevil.com/file/280/ . If you click on the Parts tab, you'll see an option to buy a replacement belt. The company refers to this belt as Belt Style 15 with the part number of 1SN0220001. The direct link to order a belt from the manufacturer is http://dirtdevil.com/parts/details/1sn0220001/belt-style-15/ . Other sites, like Amazon.com, have the belt and may be cheaper.

I hope this helps.

Why


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, Facebook.com/dirtdevil or Twitter @DirtDevil.

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.

I have a self propelled Royal Dirt Devil vacuum model number 087900 and it goes backward fine but forward has to be pushed so hard it's impossible. Is this a switch? Do you know about how much the part...


You might try a new belt and/or brush roll. The brush roll is what helps pull a vacuum forward, the power drive helps, but if the brush isn't turning like it should, then it will hinder forward motion. The belt may look ok, but they stretch to the point that under load they won't drive the brush roll.

Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagless Upright


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.
