Your roller won't turn. The belt is designed to break if anything threatens to keep the motor from turning. When you have the roller out, check the end caps to see if they rotate easily. If they do, then install a new belt being very careful that the belt is not pinched on the channel that it sits in. Once you have the belt installed, turn the roller by hand to make sure that there is no jamming or catching of anything. Install the plate and check the rotation again. Once you are satisfied that the roller turns easily, try the machine.
If the caps on the roller are jammed, as they will get from debris, hair and thread, etc., then you may have to replace the roller. The end caps on most of the Dirt Devils are carbon fibre and will break when you try to remove them.

I keep replacing the belt and keeps melting and breaks. what do i need to do? everything else is working, the little piece of metal that hooks on the belt gets too hot and melt the belt


i think your talking about the motor spindel,,(the little metal bit?) if the motor is that hot its going to burn out soon, check that the brush is free to turn if its tight free it off its full of grit or fluff also check that the motor turns freely

Belt drive keeps melting every belt we put on


usually that means something is stopping the brushes from spinning weather it is not greased well or just something still there I can't tell you but that is the broblem. You could try asking in a vac store/repair if they've had a fair amount of that model doing this and reccomomend a slightly different size .thickness belt to take up some slack

My vacuum wil not pick up and I would like to know how to change the belt.


You must remove the bottom plate for access to the belt area. You may have clogged the dirt path ... as long as the bottom is removed, clean the dirt path (hose and fittings)

Dynamite Dirt Devil Hose


I figured out how last night.
Take a screw driver and unscrew the screw on the top of hose and take the hose out and take a pen or something long enough with grip to get all of the junk out.

The circulation still isn't as strong though.

Did you check the brush roll, if the ends aren't turning freely, then it needs to be replaced also.

If it is only 2 months old, then it is under warranty, take it in for warranty repair. There may be a circuit breaker on it, usually on the back at the bottom, it there is, push it to see if it has tripped.
