Question about Hoover F6212-900 / F6215-900 SteamVac Agility Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Dirt Devil Model 5200

I know this machine is old, but until now is in great condition, as I did not use it a lot. I gave it to my daughter and within 2 weeks she called and said it is very noisy. I had it brought home, and noisy isn't a good word to describe it. You can not use it, it is that loud. She has changed the belt, and the rollers are moving. It does pick up but it is so loud you could wake up anyone within a mile. Please help! I can't afford to buy her a new one right now. =:(

If there is a lot of vibration along with the noise, then unfortunately the impeller inside that creates the suction has probably lost a blade or two and is now out of balance. Sucking up coins and other hard objects will do that is a hurry. If not, then there may be something stuck in the impeller. In either case, you will need to get to the motor itself and either remove whatever is stuck there or break off an even number of blades on the opposite side of where they are missing to balance things out. Think of how your washing machine acts when it's out of balance. It the same idea, only 100 times faster.

Unfortunately, this is most likely something that requires someone to take it apart.

Hope this helps, and please rate my answer, good or bad.

Thanks, and good luck!

What causes poor suction on model ud40270? It seems like a lot of air is blowing out the front where the filter is.


Susan:

First, remove and clean or replace all of the filters in the machine. There is an inlet filter above the dirt collection cup. and an exhaust filter at the front lower part of the top of the vacuum head. If either filter is clogged, you'll get poor suction. Also lay the machine on it's back, and check the tunnel where the dirt goes up into the machine (behind the beater bar) to see that it is not clogged.

Is the dirtdevil vacuum for $49.00 at target a good buy? it has a diet cup and is light weight


If you have the exact model number, you can search online for the average prices for any piece of equipment you want.

Here is a link to a bunch of different Dirt Devil Vacuum models available on EBay:

http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p5197.m570.l1313&_nkw=dirt+devil+vacuum&_sacat=See-All-Categories


Just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information and items at the website indicated.

Just type DIRT DEVIL VACUUM or the exact model number of the one you want into the EBay search box and you will find a large selection of them. Just make sure the item you are looking at is in NEW condition. You will find a lot of second hand units on there as well, so just be aware.

If you find a really good deal on EBay you can buy it directly from there too, just remember to factor in the cost of shipping which is usually listed below the actual sale price of the item.

As I said, there are many different models of Dirt Devil Vacuums, so it is difficult to say if that is a good price or not for whichever model that is.

Thank you very much and good luck.

Joe.

I have a dirt devil featherlite carpet shampooer. It has been a great one for about five years without any problems. I need to know if anyone knows where I can find the replacement filters?


Hi There,

We actually do carry the foam filter for your Dirt Devil Featherlite (also manufactured as the Easy Steamer) carpet cleaner.

According to the Dirt Devil parts diagram for the CE6000, your machine takes the following foam filter. Here's a direct link to the filter on our website:
Dirt Devil Featherlite, Easy Steamer Foam Filter Part# 1-700750-600

Here's a link for the parts diagram for your Dirt Devil Featherlite CE6000 carpet cleaner. This will give you all of the part numbers, and drawings for each part on your machine should need any further parts:

I hope this helped. If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to use the comment field here on the repair page to contact me, I'm always happy to answer any follow up questions.

If you found this repair helpful, please be so kind and rate the repair helpful and / or leave feedback for me. Thanks so much!

Vacuum doesn't pick-up dirt


It's probably not picking up because the belt is worn and stretched. With a new belt it will pick up a lot better. Here is the belts you need:

I have a dirt devil vacemn that has a warranty of 3 years. I bought it in May 2007. Can I return this where I bought it, walmart


Unfortunately, no. Wal-Mart maintains a 90 day return policy, that is to the best of my knowledge. If the machine is broken, obtain its serial number and warranty information and have them ready and call DirtDevil support and let them know what is wrong with the machine. From that point, Dirt Devil should either send you a new or refurbished machine of the same model or provide you with some voucher to cover the cost of the repair or replacement of the machine.

No clogs, work fine, but makes a very loud wailing sound? what could it be?


My Dirt devil Reaction does the same thing. So I took apart the motor and it was crammed w/ dirt then I decided to clean it out. next time I vacuumed my house it was a lot quieter. The guy from Jones sew and vac said baggless vacuum filters most of the time fail and let dirt get in the motor and start to scream. I read a lot of things saying Dirt devil Reaction is the most common vacuum to get dirt in the motor and start to wail then get worse & worse and get to the point where they start to almost scream. P.S if you let it scream for along time of use it will give the motor permanent damage and you will smell electrical burning, if that happens it will be too late so you will half to buy a new machine. To get to the motor you can take the dust contaner off and take the black filter then use your down stairs vacuum and get a small attachament and stick it in and vacuum it out,if not have two vacuums borrow one. If that doesn't clean it out you will need to take all the plastic appart and realy get to the motor good. If my advice dosn't help it is ok to still use it, it will just be loud until the motor of it is totally fried. This should work it worked on my Dirt devil Reaction. I'm sorry if it doesn't work out. :D
