Any warranty dealer for Dirt Devil should be able to supply a schematic for that machine. They have access to the dealer web site and can download the information.

SOURCE: Dirt Devil Extreme Quick Vac - Won't turn on

Check that the filters are completely clear and not blocked - especially the top filter on top of the bin assembly. If its clogged completely brush it free of dirt and then reassemble. Make sure the inner cone filter and mesh filter is also completely clean. Then check the hose and main dust channel - something is clogged that makes this machine overheat and stop working - and often with this model (Hoover also make it in the UK under the Alyx name) its down to clogged filters or small clogs of dust in the dust channels. 
Don't forget to rate, thanks.

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,

Handie Andie

My dirt devil keeps shutting off randomly


It's overheating. Empty the cup and replace the filters. There's a breaker that opens up and turns it off when it gets too hot. When it cools down it closes back up and it will run again. It'll argue with you til the end of time or until you fix the problem.

Good Luck

This is an indication that the intake is clogged. Needs disassembly and cleaning.

yOU MIGHT TRY LOOKING DEEP INTO THE DEVIL PAST THE CANISTER INTAKE AS THIS IS WHERE THEY CAN GET A HUGE CLOG THAT YOU CAN'T SE UNLESS YOU STICK YOUR HAND WAY IN THE UBE. DO THID WITH THE DEVIL TURNED OFF. CHECK FOR A SHORT IN THE CORD AS WELL BE SAFE FIRST.

Please specify whether the vacuum motor does not turn on when you flip the switch or it simply does not have suction.

Dirt Devil Reaction Dual Cyclonic- M110000, "cyclones" not spinni


If the filters have been washed and installed back in instantly there wont be any suction. Check the top filters have been cleaned thoroughly and also check inspection tubes/hose and dust channels to check for a clog. Also check the sole plate / bottom of where the beater bar as there may be a clog somewhere.
