The metal clip is a leaf spring and there is a slot for it, You may have to pull the cover off, may have a broken piece for the adjuster. Would help to have model number.

I( think Dirt devil wheels are held on by a little clip, kind of round ish. Check the other wheel and see if it has that kind of set up. Chris

Getting the height adjustment to work


is this a piece of **** dirt devil? if so, even when you get it back together the design is so flawed that it will keep breaking the belts, I've already gone through 3 in a week! see my other suggestions to remedy this.

My upright sebox4 will not stand . It keeps on dropping down.


This is usually a matter of lubrication (or lack thereof). If you look under the base of the machine, you will see that the "clip" as you call it is part of the metal axle on which the wheels are mounted. This axle is held in place by 3 metal tabs, each held by a single screw. About mid-way along, there's a spring coiled around the axle. That spring is what holds the "clip" (the bent part of the axle) against the tube that connects to the base of the bag compartment and holds it upright.
It's possible that your spring is broken, but often the problem is that the axle is sticking and the spring can't do its job properly. Try a small drop of oil under each of the 3 metal tabs. If that doesn't work, remove the 3 tabs completely, remove the axle (noting how the spring locates, so you can put it back correctly) and give everything a good clean. Then reassemble and try again.
Good luck!

Hight adjustor does not work...


I think we got this figured out . . . . the height adjustment doesn't work when the vacuum is UPRIGHT, but when you disengage and lower the handle the plastic that is blocking the wheels from receding will rotate and then it can receive the plastic on the "top" of the wheel assembly. Try it and I think you will find that it works. I thought it was the wheels that were keeping the vacuum from working well, but that's not the case. Still don't know why it's gone to heck in 9 months.

Carpet Height Adjusment


In addition to the tab that contacts the bottom of the slider, there are 2 protusions on the adjustable wheel plate that move through holes in the housing, but only when the handle is tilted to begin vacuuming. The wheel plate has a spring that forces the tab against the slider. As the handle is moved to the upright position, the protusions move back through the holes, taking the tab away from the slider and the wheel plate locks in its highest position. Therefore, the position of the slider has no effect while the handle is upright and locked. Hope this helps.
