I assume you are refering to the beater bar. Hair and debris get under that caps, most arethreaded on. hold both endcaps and then counter rotate. if not threaded, then try to pull apart, be carefull not to break it. if it does not come off too easily then ask a vac shop to help you clean it.

How do I take the agitator end caps off?


Alliemay657:

It sometimes takes a 2 grunt pull to remove the end caps and bearings from the agitator (called the beater bar). I have had to use a flat blade screwdriver to CAREFULLY pry the end caps and bearings from a beater bar. Be careful not to stab your hand with the screwdriver (It HURTS!!!) Once you get the end caps and bearings off, clean the hair and carpet fibers from the ends of the beater bar and bearings and end caps. If the bearings don't turn easily, dribble some rubbing alcohol on them (I use a spray bottle filled with alcohol) and spin them until they spin freely. Dry the bearings until there is no alcohol in them. Put a drop or two of light machine oil in each bearing (3 in 1 oil will do), and spin the bearings to distribute the oil and ensure they spin freely. Now would be a good time to check the vacuum head and hose for clogs. Push the bearings and end caps back on the beater bar and reinstall the beater bar (with a new belt). Reinstall the foot plate, and your machine should run like new

Upright dirtdevil roller jammed - how to remove square endcaps for cleaning


The brush roller is secured with elastic stop nuts. Clamp the nut at one end with a wrench or pliers and remove the nut from the opposite end. This will allow the shaft to be removed completely for cleaning

My dirt devil breeze was rattling while on. I found that the one end of the brush roller had shifted off the sqaure ends. Is it bent inside? Can it be repaired or do I need a new brush roller


The ends are fastened to each end of a shaft that passes through the roller. If the brush has shifted, perhaps the nuts or other fasteners have loosened. You can try to tighten the nuts but be carefaul to avoid tightening too much, causing the roller to not turn freely
