Ensure the Dirt Devil is connected to a working power supply
if it does not turn on or operate. Check the fuse or breaker and
replace or reset as necessary.
Empty the dirty water tank if there is little or no suction.
Turn off the Dirt Devil and grab the top of the dirty water tank. Push
on the latch to release the tank and pull the tank off the base. Remove
the lid and empty the dirty water into a sink. Replace the cap and hook
the front of the tank onto the machine base. Hook the nozzle on the base
so that the nozzle is level with the cleaner base. Push the back of the
dirty water tank down and into position.
Check the dirty water tank and empty as necessary if there
is water leaking from the cleaner. Open the latch on the top of the
solution reservoir and pull the reservoir forward. Fill with Dirt Devil
brand cleaner to the fill mark. Fill the rest of the reservoir with hot
water and close the cap. Replace on the base unit.
Make sure the solution reservoir is seated firmly in the
base unit if there is no cleaning solution dispensing from the unit.
Fill the solution tank with cleaner and water if the level is low.
Examine the hose and nozzles for possible obstructions if
the carpet cleaner does not seem to be operating correctly. Remove any
tip unit back to lift brushes off floor and roll forward until over carpet edge. tip back unit to sit flush on carpet and unlock handle so it swings freely. now pull backwards ith finger on spray trigger. that's how it works, not by pushing forwad.
Almost certainly there's a broken wire within the electric flex. This usually happens where there's most bending and pulling - that is, where the flex enters the machine or where it enters the plug. You'll need to get someone to either shorten the flex or fit a new one.
Beware that messing with electrics is potentially dangerous, so don't do it yourself unless you are confident you know what you're doing! Good luck!
Hello. Check out your reset button located on the top of the power nozzle. It is either black or red. Turn the cleaner on, and while running, push in the reset. Voila! It should be working again. The reset is put in the vac to protect your power nozzle motor. You have a geared belt that is driven by a circuit breaker protected motor. This way, if there is an overload on it, it will shut off, allowing you to clear it and reset it. I hope this helps! Have a good day.
mine was the power head neck itself the handle got twisted to far and broke the wire a new neck cost 37 bucks online and i installed it myself wires get attached color to color and screw the head back together. it worked just like new!
I had the same problem . The reason it acts like that is due to the cable that runs from the vacuum motor to the brush assembly has an intermittent open. My fix was to find the small cable that was causing my troubles and splice it. Making sure that I recovered the insulation. Of course my local repair station wanted to replace it for $75 labor plus parts and keep it for 3 days. I took it home and did it in 30 minutes .
If you have made no changes to the vacuum's setup and are using it on same carpet you have previously used it on with no problem, then the most likely cause is the agitator/beater bar's drive belt is worn or on some models may have a tension adjustment which is set too loosely. This can also be caused by having the vacuums height adjustment set to low for the carpet or flooring you are using it on, causing to much drag when the vacuum is pulled backwards for the agitator to overcome.
The vast majority of agitators turn in a forward direction, as if it would pull the vacuum forward, when you pull the vacuum backwards the drag is increased.
So...First check height adjustment (a no cost fix), then check out the tension adjustment (if present on you model, some engage when top of vacuum is tilted back after stepping on the release pedal) Lastly, consider changing belt especially if you have had the vacuum awhile or if it gets a fair amount of use or it you seem to need to use it on a low height setting all the time to vacuum up debris.
